I am so happy the New Year has arrived. So, what's so great or different about today than what was given to me yesterday. A new start, new hope, a new direction. Each and every day is a new start. Every minute that passes can point you on the right path. They were plenty of times to call "do over" as I look back at the past six weeks. Can I get any of that time back and make a different decision ... NO, but I can make some changes going forward and I have and I will. My daughter Stephanie had a very good post on her blog today and it has put some fire in me instead of excuses that's been overflowing in my mind the last few weeks.
I think the only time to look back is looking at the tough times you've made it through, the things that made you proud, the milestones that you've gathered up. I look back at my progress and success in September and know that January can be just as successful.
I was hoping our gym was open today but it is closed because of the holiday. But there's something just about never taking "no" for an answer. There are other means of exercise. I should have taken a walk at midnight last night to welcome the New Year when it was 60 degrees here in Indiana, insteasd of in the 30's like it is now, but I have many choices. I can bundle up and go out anyway. I can pull out an exercise video. I'm can run up and down the stairs a dozen times. I'm sure the alternatives are endless. What would you do?
