I can't believe another year has gone by. I'm pretty okay with 2014, although it wasn't a fantastic year it was far better than 2013 with so many people in my family passing away. I'm actually looking forward to the new year. I love this quote by Brad Paisley:
Yes, write a good one. Kind of makes it sound like we have control over that (insert sarcasm smiley)..but when you really think about it - WE DO! It's not WHAT gets thrown our way but HOW we react to it. One of the things I'd like to concentrate on for me is my reaction to things. My reaction to strangers misfortunes. My reaction to things I have absolutely no control over. My "quick" reaction to negativity and negative people. I need to breathe.
I'm looking forward to the new year although resolutions aren't in the picture. I have "plans" lol. Plans to start the 21 Day Fix tomorrow. I bought it in the beginning of December and for Christmas Paul bought me a month's worth of Shakeology. I'm super excited about it. The 21 Day Fix isn't about losing weight in 21 days. That's how long it takes for the average person to break bad eating habits. Eating fresh veggies and fruits and not all the chips, dips, cookies, chips, fries, cakes, chips...well you get the idea. I did try out the exercise video the other day and haven't walked straight since! But I'm feeling better and tomorrow is the "official" start day and I plan on only doing 50% of the workout. Not the time but the weights and duration etc.
Tomorrow we're having our annual New Year's Day barbecue. Paul has made his macaroni salad and I made a pecan pie. (I WILL have a sliver). In the morning I'm going to make an old fashioned potato salad.
So, I will update my blog on my progress with my new healthy lifestyle. I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Here's to 2015...BRING IT ON!
