Wow. Already January 15th. Where oh where does the time go?! The first week of the new year I was sick. Sick to the point of not going to work on the first Monday of the new year. They day everyone starts fresh. Everything is new! New schedules, new notebooks, new calendars, a new out look on eating, new sneakers for the gym (side note: I feel like EVERYONE got new sneakers for Christmas.. and there I am in my old beat up kicks! LOL.); a fresh clean start. As I thought about all newest, I was buried in bed under 5 blankets. Nice way to start the new year. But alas, I’m back out there, living my new routine.

Finding a balance between everything stills seems to be a struggle at times. I have turned myself into a master list maker. It seems to be the only way to get anything done these days! All errands seem to get done quicker and better, except for the dreaded gym. Not sure when I started to dread the gym. It’s sad and I don’t like that feeling. So in order to boost up my willingness to get to the gym better, I decided to sign up with a group of friends who created their own Biggest Loser competition as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. It seemed to be the best option and a win win for all. Something to keep me on track a bit better and an important fundraiser!!

I am reclaimed what I am eating. There are no more cookies being eaten at 10 o’clock at night, cakes consumed after lunch and venti lattes for my afternoon snack. It is still early, and it takes what 21 days to create a routine you can stick to?!?!?… but I have high hopes I can do it 🙂

I’m trying all new things at the gym, finding classes that work and skipping the classes that don’t work. Tonight I’m headed to a different gym, to try a completely different class to me! Should be interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes!

 

I kind of forgot how to do this. I’m hoping it comes back fairly quick. I have a lot to say!

I have been going back and forth on whether to let this part of my life go completely, start a new blog with a new name or continue this one? Honestly I’m not sure what the right answer is. Each day I come up with a different response. But for now, I going to continue on, upward and forward!

So it is a New Year. Time for a clean slate. The newness of everything all over again. An awakening in how to eat again. I almost feel like I need to relearn how to eat. One night during the crazy Christmas eating (i.e. cookies, big dinners, desserts galore) I seriously thought I was going through sugar withdrawal. It was quite scary. Each and every year I say I’m not going to fall in the trap of holiday eating, and sadly I do. Time to relight the fire. Start again. Put some goals on paper. It’s always fun to look back and see how far I came. Without further ado… here they are!

1. Be healthier. Duh. When will this not be #1!

2. Think before I act!

3. Read more. Hope to make in through a full book in 2014 – more than I read in 2013.

4. Write more.

5. Travel. 2013 there was a lot of travel. Hoping 2014 has the same amount! San Diego, Paris, Saratoga Springs are all on the list.

6. Debt begone. LOL. If only there was a button!

7. Be more creative. Either knitting, sewing, pottery classes, web-sites.. just do it.

8. Find some more balance. Almost there, but still needs some work!

9. Be more patient and kind.

10. Have fun and love life… everyday won’t be amazing but working through the downs and enjoying the ups!

And there it is.

Now off to conquer something on this list.
