Happy New Year everyone! Can you believe that it is already the 3rd of Jan? CRAZY!
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year’s. I certainly did. It was full of friends and family and I had a great time with everyone.
To some degree I am glad it is over. Funny thing is, I look forward to Christmas every year, and then it exhausts me and I am ready to be done--sometimes even before Christmas hits. Sad. ;-(
Anyway, this year has a lot of promises attached. I don't know what all to expect, but for sure there are some good things to look forward to. I am making changes and moving forward.
The gym that I am a part of (Gold's) always has these weight loss challenges going on every 12 weeks or so. There are prizes involved and other great incentives. So, to start my year off right, I think I may join. I will post more about it later as I learn more and start it. For this challenge, you are accountable in a group setting. If you don't lose weight, it can affect the whole team. Tonight I am going to an informational meeting to get all of the details. I am nervous yet excited. I need this. I need the push it will give me to get going. I am certainly sick of being heavy--I just want to feel normal ya know?
I know that there are many more things to look forward to this year. One of my resolutions is to spend more time in prayer and worship. I also want to learn how to play my djembe and worship more with that as well.
Soooo...one thing at a time--moving forward is always good. Today I am focusing on not eating dessert type foods and trying to avoid bread. YIKES! Already I went into the kitchen here at work and there were delicious looking lemon bars on the counter. I just wanted to reach out and grab one. I for sure know that I am addicted to sugar. Every time I eat lunch or dinner I want something sweet to follow it. I am also always wanting to munch on carbs so I am working on substituting it with fruit and eventually with veggies as well (I need to go shopping).
So here is to making good choises! HELP ME JESUS! ;-)
