1 July 18 *New Beginnings*
Sunday, July 01, 2018
I turned 45 yesterday.
I had so many high hopes and plans to have reached my goal by then, but it didn't come to pass. Totally my fault. I let circumstances, emotions, outside distractions all have to much power and I didn't work through my plan. I get these great bursts of ideas and plans and I just can't seem to follow through. I do great to start and then it seems to fizzle, lose its spark.
I want my spark back!
So - now I'm coming back with a new determination, a new vision, a clear mind and heart.
I started a new 5% challenge this weekend and I have committed to 120 minutes of exercise weekly and to post everyday. I've been so lackadaisical with everything. Random eating, no exercise, laziness and a general feeling of overwhelm.
We finally moved to NC on June 3 - a total blessing and in God's perfect timing. There's lots to do, and I waste so much time on the computer and not getting things done. I've been running around, trying to set up house, but I look at the unpacked boxes still lining the floor and I just shut down. I have made some progress - furniture is all purchased and set up, kids rooms are mostly done, just need some tweaking. Still lots to do, but that is on my plan for July. Speaking of July plans...
*What I'd Like To Accomplish In July*
*work toward reaching my 5% goal - 13lbs by end of August
*track food/water/exercise for consistency
*be proactive with my health - physical, mental, emotional
*finish all the unpacking
*set up a homemaking routine
*get back into my quiet/Bible study time
*get my planner back in action
*learn my way around my new town
*make and stick to a new budget
*work on one-on-one time with each kiddo and Hubby
*celebrate 25 great years of marriage on July 10
*listen to encouraging and motivating podcasts/audiobooks
It seems like a long list, but if I just focus on one thing at a time, give it my full attention and get to work, I know I can do it. Individually these things don't require tons of time, just focus.
I think it's time for a new beginning.
