It seems so cliché to make resolutions these days. Yet, I just can’t stop myself.
I’m in need of a makeover, January 1st (actually 5th) (now the 8th), seems like the best time to do it. I might as well jump on the self-improvement train and make a go of it.
Here are a few things I’d like to accomplish in 2015:
1. Gain a better understanding of which foods negatively impact how I feel and irritate my digestive system
2. Build functional strength
3. Reduce unnecessary spending
4. Spend more time on creative projects
5. Get on with life
I feel like I have procrastinated long enough, it is time to face 2014 and get on with this thing. This year the resolution thing didn’t really move me. I can set all the goals I want but if I’m not motivated then it’s a mute point. So this year, I felt like a little introspection was the path to take. When I looked inside, I saw that I want more, more and more.
It’s a sad situation when you’re relieved that the holidays are over just because you won’t be faced with piles of edibles that make you feel like crap. In 2014, I want more food. The real kind that makes a real contribution to maintaining a physically fit body. By physically fit, I don’t just mean weight loss. I finally kicked sausage to the curb because my non-gull bladder body just can’t deal with it anymore. I’ve had a taste of peacefulness and I want more of it. There are other foods and other components of foods that make it difficult to put on a happy face day in and day out. I want to pinpoint what those foods are and lock them out with the sausage.
More Of What I Used To Have
So many dream of the bodies they had when they were in high school. I don’t really care about that anymore but I would like some of the good habits I used to have when I was about 35 years old. Like carrying a water bottle with me everywhere just so I wouldn’t go thirsty or eating the lunch I brought from home because it was healthier and more economical than fast food. I cared more about what I ate, what I did, and how I did it. I want to be more like I was when I was 35.
My motivational poster from 2009/2010 when my attitude was on only a slight decline
Need I say more? No, I only need to do more.
I’m pretty well known in my husband’s family for claiming every year that my husband, kids, and I will be under a crack down starting in the New Year… except I always say it starts on January 2nd because, well, New Year’s Day just isn’t the right time with family visiting… last minute candy gifts… no one wanting to cook…
So, for the 2013 Crack Down, I started with Chinese Food, ice cream sundaes, and an exercise rest day.
I’m totally going to ROCK 2013!
