With the passing of the holiday season and the return of some routine and normalcy to my life, I feel my spirits lifting. For as spontaneous as I was all during my 20’s, over the past few years, I have become, very much so, a creature of routine and habit.
While habit and routine may be comforting, it is almost never rewarding. I know that with children (especially young children) routine is an inevitable necessity.
My thoughts are, if routine and habit are what I need to feel comfortable, that is fine so long as that routine and habit involves exercise (and stepping out of my comfort zone) at least five days per week. I also plan on trying to be a little more spontaneous and flexible. Maybe not to the point that I once was, but hopefully at least to the point that any small hiccup or glitch won’t send me reeling and spiralling into a deep void.
So good-bye 2010 and all the bad habits and attitudes that are associated with you!
Hello 2011! You are my 36th year on this planet. The year I find myself. The year I finally take control of my weight and health. My year!
Tomorrow: A very, very dreaded weigh in and measurements. I completely took a nose dive off the waggon the entire month and a half of the holiday season. As much as I dread knowing where I am right now, I have to know where I am starting from.
I gotta start somewhere, and right here looks like a good place to start!
Gonna work The Sexy Plan.
