TODAY is the first day of the rest of my life!!!!!
When I started my blog months ago - I started because I was essentially turning over a new leaf. (I actually turned over SEVERAL leafs! *sigh* ) This blog was intended to document my journey to a new me. Or maybe not a "new" me so much as just discovering me... learning who I am and what I'm really looking for and just learning to love this crazy life that I call my own! There have been SOOOO many good things to come into my life since starting... many milestones reached and revelations revealed... about myself and about life in general. :) This makes me soooo happy :)
...back in September however - I began documenting my journey in the gym (SEE previous post The GYM )
But I must confess that after the holidays I have TOTALLY slacked on getting back into my routine. I have been a couple of times here and there.......but NOTHING to write home about - NOTHING to make any difference in my life.
And I have DEFINITELY backtracked on my eating habits....
February 1, 2010.
I have contacted David (my trainer) back at Get Toned Fitness... and I have made a promise to put my heart and soul back into living a healthier life. Workouts 3-5 days a week, eating healthier, out go the cokes again and back on the water....I could go on and on.... but you get the idea.
WHY so adament about this???
I know I have talked before about the difference in attitude going to the gym makes - but along with attitude, I just can't put into words the better overall feeling you get from exercise. The endorphins in your body can do nothing BUT make you feel better :)
Along with the gym - when it gets warmer - I'm going to start working on that Couch to 5K (C25K) plan also! I DO intend to run in more than one 5k in 2010. Dangit. And I WILL beat my time from 2009 ;-)
LOOK OUT ABS!!!
I'm coming for ya!
So - starting today - back in the gym. back to eating better. back to focusing on my health and making sure I'm around for years and years to see my baby boy (can I still call him my baby at 14???!!) grow and have a family and life of his own.
Along with the gym and healthier lifestyle - there are so many things in my life that are moving ahead and as of today - I'm grabbing the rope and holding on. I'm trusting that God has a plan for me in so many places and in so many ways. I'm DONE making plans and anticipating what life has in store.
Effective today - I focus on doing the very best I can do to get through one day at a time. I refuse to be overwhelmed or worry or even think about what "could be". Only what IS. This includes not only the gym, but also with my job, with my child, with whatever happens with school, with Adam, with church, with my emotions, with my spirituality.... it includes it all.
TODAY..... today I turn it all over to God.
I'm sick of being bitter and mad at myself.....of feeling like I let myself down. I'm just gonna live day by day and do the best I can do to be where God wants me to be.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the best of it.
