One year ago today, I joined a group of really special ladies to help support each other in our goals of weight loss and being healthy. We wrote down on paper a list of our goals to be reached within the next year. My list was typical of me.....housework, getting my family more organized, spending more time with kids actually doing things, becoming a better cook, etc. Here's the list of goals I accomplished.
Yup, that's right. I didn't get one single goal completed. In a freaking year? Wow.....pretty pitiful, right? Well, yeah it is. But I have a reason. None of those are real goals for me. I think I have this goal to be Carol Brady but I'm more of a Peggy Bundy. So today I decided to concentrate on renewing my list to obtainable goals with deadlines. It'll be a boring day today at work, so I can work and still have my notebook sitting next to me thinking and thinking on how to make it happen.
So goal #1 is to just GET HEALTHY. What's that mean? What should I buy? That means I need to take care of me. I'm one of the leaders in my home as the parent.....I need to do this. It means eating better but not going crazy with it. It means treating my skin better. It means working out a little and easing into a lot. It means NOT doing a lot of crazy things like getting more excited that my son when I hear the ice cream truck. It means taking my vitamins. It means eating breakfast every day.
I'm actually texting with my hubby right now about helping me get up in the mornings. I'm a morning person once I get my butt outta the dang bed. I've come to understand that's one of my major errors every day. On the days when I get up early, my intent for the day being a healthy one stays with me. It seems that if I get myself into a healthy pattern, lots of other things will fall into place with that. Hmmmmm.
