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!
