Who starts a resolution on the 1st anyway?

Looking through this blog and seeing that my last post was in May makes me a little sad. I used to really enjoy blogging about my weight loss (and other random nonsense). It really helped to have that support. But in the last four years or so, it's gotten away from me.

And... so has my weight! I have basically been losing and gaining the same 10-15 lbs for the last four years. I had done so good and lost 75lbs, but after that, I just got a little too comfortable. I managed to lose 22 lbs for my wedding, but I can safely say that I've found them all again. Sad, really. I need to get off of this cycle and lose the weight for good. What happened to my original goal of losing 100 lbs?

It's come to my attention that I need to "get myself back" again. Not just with the weight, but everything else too. Sometimes we get busy and just lose ourselves in the midst of everything. I want to make time to do things that are important to me. I want to FIND new things that are important to me. Mostly I need to make myself a priority again.

And since I didn't quite have my act together by Jan 1st, might as well get a late start. (I'll convince myself that most people already ditched their resolutions anyway!)

What this looks like for me:

  1. I will eat healthy healthy. I know how to do this, it is just a matter of doing it!
  2. I will not eat SO healthy that I want to binge or quit. (Lifestyle change!)
  3. I will start doing 30 minutes on the elliptical in the mornings.
  4. I will read a daily devotional and read corresponding bible verses every morning. This means getting up early enough so I don't have to rush.
  5. I will read books that interest and inspire me. First up- A New Earth (an Ekhart Tolle book that I read years ago about being spiritually awakened and living in the present moment)
  6. I will start cooking better dinners that are healthy, but not boring.
  7. I will blog. If nothing more than to journal about my goals and keep myself accountable.
And there you have it! I'd love to hear from anyone still reading this, and I look forward to making new blogger friends again. I need some fresh blogs to follow. Please feel free to introduce yourself!
