I'm not very good at this blog thing. I don't feel like I have anything to say, and I don't want to just say something everyday so that leaves me with random unexpected posts :).
I was reading over my personal weightloss blog (that's for my eyes only) and saw a common theme, I was constantly saying I need to "do better". It kind of made me sad that over the past year (since February anyway) I have lost over 50lbs yet my comments to myself were.... I need to do better. So, although I don't really do new years resolutions or anything I want to look back over the blogs next year and be satisfied. Even if I lose weight slowly (notice I didn't say even if I don't lose any weight, cause that's not an option) I want to know that I gave it a good run every week.
Not just with eating right and working out I realize I waste alot of the time that I do have. For example I might get home at 8:00 like I did last night but instead of sitting down in front of the tv just because, I can use that time. There isn't anything wrong with sitting in front of the tv but for me it's not one of those things that just gives me joy. Certain shows do, so i will sit down and watch those but to just flip channels.....naahhh.
So I am going to focus on things that bring me joy. Focus on having a better attitude and being proud of myself for what I have done and not focus so much on what I haven't done. I want to make more time for building relationships. I get so caught up in business that I don't leave alot of time for plain ole hanging out with friends and family.
Last year was a great year for us. We both lost a bunch of weight and we got out of a bunch of debt. Thank you weight watchers and Dave Ramsey. Just as a side note, it's crazy how much both programs are so much alike :). I hope this year we will enjoy more of the freedoms and health that we have. Now that we have more energy, use it for good, now that we have more control of our finances, budget for good.
Here's to a great 2010! I think it's going to be a great year.
