It was October and I dropped off the face of the earth again…
I have never used this blog for numbers or “SEO” or anything like that, it is merely a way for me to display my word vomit and update those who care.
So when I drop off the face of the earth who am I really hiding from?…. Yea the class just answered “me”.
It’s 2013 and I love a new year. I love the chance to start again. I love making (and even braking) resolutions. So, this is the year to focus on me. What will make my life better and more complete? Specifically I want to lose weight. I have copped out for years saying that I simply wanted to be “healthy” well losing weight will help with that one.
I did a caloric diet online assessment the other day. It figures out how long it will take for you to get to your goal and mine was 2016… um… 2016? That’s 3 effin years from now. But then I realized in 3 years will I still be in the same place thinking of what life would look like from the other side? I can’t do that. I can’t live like this. I need to make changes.
And luckily I can make the changes needed and I have already started. I have the water drinking down at work and have switched to a coffee a day with a diet coke about once a week. This month I’m focusing on getting fruits and veggies in daily. I’m sitting here at a coffee shop about to head to a farmers market to help with that goal. I will next focus on waking earlier to get my movement in.
I wanted to join the y and swim, but right now that’s just not a financial commitment I can make. The boyfriend and I have decided that we want to get some gazelle intensity this year and pay down the condo. I already have netflix for workout programs. I will start to utilize that.This will be the year of consistent needed changes.
So what does that mean for this place? It still exists. I want to document what I’m doing and when I fail. Because I will. And that’s okay too. But my new mantra is a poem that has been on my fathers fridge forever. It was probably one of the first things I ever memorized. I’m not sure who to credit, I remember it saying annon on the fridge, if you know- let me know.
You are the man who used to boast
That you’d achieve the uttermost,
You merely wished a show,
To demonstrate how much you know
And prove the distance you can go…
Another year we’ve just passed through.
What new ideas came to you?
How many big things did you do?
Time…left twelve fresh months in your care
How many of them did you share
With opportunity and dare?
Again, we do not find you on the list of Makers Good.
Explain the fact!
Ah No, ’twas not the chance you lacked!
As usual – you failed to act!
2013 – my year of not failing to act
