It has been months since I have blogged. My work and personal life have been very busy. Work has been VERY VERY busy. I have been trying to find the time to write but it never seems to come. So today, between a small lull in my day I decided I would write. Even as I type the words it feels so good. I've missed my little blog. I missed getting my thoughts down. Since it is a new year I wanted to talk about 2012. 2012 was an amazing year. I travelled to Europe for a second time, went to California, rode 30 plus miles on my bike, rode my bike up a mountain, Spicer has really blossomed, I am closer to Tommy than ever, and I have a new position as regional director. 2012 was a great year. There are still so many things to be done. I have slacked in my weight loss and almost stopped exercising. It is so easy to say, "I don't have time for that today." It is so easy to say, “I’ll just eat a few of these crackers or a cookie or two." I am not going to beat myself up. This isn't a big long blog
about how awful I am. This is about starting back up. I'm not starting over, just resuming. I'm not at square one, just a few steps behind. And that's OK! I saw a great picture the other day. It's the picture above and it said Enjoy The Journey. Sometimes I think people looking to improve their lives whether it be their health or weight or anything for that matter get so bogged down on reaching some type of end or final goal. We put ourselves through these imaginary time lines. When I started this Journey I had a set number and a set time I wanted to be "finished" losing weight. Now why did I do that? Did I really think I would have some kind of end date with weight loss? Did I think after a magic number I would not loose or gain any more? That is silly. Is it good to have goals? YES But it is not good to let yourself get depressed or think that you are a lesser person because you didn't meet those goals. I have gained some of my weight back. BUT!!! I am now trying to lose it. I have taken
steps to make that happen. 1) I threw out any snack food I was munching on. 2) Tommy and I have Mag Trainers for our bikes to ride indoors during this cold weather 3) We have started counting calories again. Will the weight I gained come off in three days? NOPE :) But, I'll get there. Plus I have a great partner in crime to help me along the way. Here's to the JOUNREY! Happy 2013!
