Here we are, a week into the new year....a whole week has gone by as we forge ahead into the year 2014.
A lot of people have the year mapped out for themselves. They've made resolutions, and promises. There are expectations to be met.
Restrictions to live by, and pressure to measure up to a standard set too high.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve oneself.
It just seems wise to keep a reasonable perspective when starting any self-improvement regime.
We don't all have the same physical abilities.
If we train with a friend that is more athletic, or more advanced than we are, we will expect too much out of ourselves, and become discouraged.
Find a training partner that is suitable to your work-out level.
You will find your sessions less frustrating.
When dieting....choose a program suited to your needs!!! NOT your sisters, or your best friends.
What works for one person, doesn't always work for another.
Buying the food programs through the mail can become quite expensive. Make sure you check them out thoroughly.
There are quite a few options to quit smoking out there.
Don't give up if the first option fails!!!
Take one day at a time.
Change isn't always about losing something, or giving something up.
Sometimes it's about "finding" something.
It can be about relationships.
ALL kinds of them!!!
Mending them, building them, improving them, starting them....you be the judge.
2013 went by way too fast for me.
2014 started out with my 60th birthday, and a surprise weekend planned by my three daughters.
They took me to a Bed & Breakfast in Frankenmuth. Paid for my meals. Gave me a basket with my "favorite things" tucked inside....the wine bottle had the invitation printed on the label(which I received the weekend before the event). Took me shopping, and made sure I bought everything I wanted!! Took me out for a wonderful dinner, and treated me so kind.I felt very loved.
For me...that was the perfect way to start the new year.
I wasn't worried about any resolutions. I just wanted to enjoy "time". The hours spent with my girls were the best of 2014 so far!!!!
Slow down, and enjoy life! Make this the year you take some time to feel some joy!
