New Year-Back to the Old Me

Thursday, January 02, 2014

Everyone (or at least it seems that way) makes a New Year's Resolution to "lose weight" or something very similar. Me, too--I resolve to lose weight in 2014, and this year, the resolution feels different.

This last year has been difficult because of an internal struggle that I have, thus far, lost. I am no longer one of the younger people on staff, and realized that aside from a few colleagues that are retiring...I am actually the oldest! My body has gone through 'the change' and along with it I have put on 25 pounds over the last few years. My clothes no longer fit, and the sizes I buy keep getting bigger. I feel old, look dumpy, and when I have pulled out the old workout DVDs, I have realized just how out of shape I have become.

What used to work doesn't do the trick anymore! Starting today (actually earlier this week, but who's counting?) I will take care of myself, and do what I know I should have been doing all along...I am NOT lazy, but have been pretending to be. I am someone who eats healthy food, exercises regularly, and gets enough rest. I am going to be the woman that I am in my head: Strong, Healthy, Fit, and Comfortable in my skin. When 2015 rolls around, I won't be making a resolution to lose weight...I will be resolving to enjoy life!

    LIfe enjoyment - starts today! 2014 being the best we can be - everyday! Woo Hoo!

    PS I woke up the other day and realized outside of my aunt and MIL I AM the Elder in my family! Right between the eyes right?!?

    I am NOT having that thought consume me again soon I hope! I choose to focus on my fitness, nutrition and helping others. Don't kid yourself, I want to look youthful and the best I can be. WE CAN DO THIS THING!
