It's another New Year. Another opportunity for a clean, fresh start. A time for evaluation of your own life and a time to figure out how to make yourself a better person. At the start of each year I have such a flood of emotions. Most of the time I can't believe that another year has gone by so quickly. I can't believe that a whole year went by without me accomplishing all that I set out to accomplish. But then I have to remind myself that baby steps are key. When I set out to change my life 180 degrees in just 12 months, it's overwhelming. When I set obtainable goals, I can accomplish them and also feel good about myself and my accomplishments.
As always, physical health is at the top of my list of resolutions. For Christmas our family received a present of a Kinect and found a few games that we can all play together. The great thing about the Kinect is that it gets you moving. You have to actually move around to play the games and we can all do it together. I hope that moving around together as well as the walking around we do in the city will help to jump start increased physical activity this year. Of course part of physical health is what you eat, so we are going to continue our meal planning and continue to make healthy choices. It's hard to say no to a bowl of ice cream, but if I can say yes to veggies more, than there doesn't have to be that guilt associated with the occasional bowl of ice cream.
There are other goals that I have set for myself for this year, but these (in addition to blogging more- check) I have already started. Hopefully this year I can continue to accomplish goals and change my life for the better. Happy New Year!
