Thank you all once again for following me to a new journal. I wanted to make a new one for a few reasons. First because i made the old one right before my little Muffin died and it is so sad to go there and remember that..the other reason is i have a new outlook and plan for this year.
See over the past few years i have become a recluse. I am not sure why really when i was younger i would go out and do all kind of fun things. I have never had a lot of friends just a few close ones but over the years they have married and moved away. We still chat online but it's not the same. I also think that gaining this weight has a lot to do with it. I just hate to get dressed and go out. I know when i lose a few pounds and feel more confident that will change..Another reason was Muffin was sick and old and i did not like to leave her alone for any length of time.
So my house has kind of become a prison..a nice prison but a prison none the less...
So in this Year Of Me this is my plan
1- Become the fit person i know i can be
2- Get a job volunteering at a shelter
3- Work on forgiveness
4- Be open to try new things
5- Start a new hobbie or two
6- Read for at least an hour a day
7- Run one new race a year
8- A Random Act of Kindness everyday you go out
That is my starter list..
1- No more crazy diets or plans. I will just work at being the healthiest i can be to lose the weight..
2-I have always wanted to give back but i have never had the time before. When Brittany was younger before i was with Steve i had to work all the time. Then when Steve and i got together Brittany was still in school and doing all her after school things and taking care of Muffin but now since Steve works until 6pm and it's just me i can look into this
3-This is a hard on for me. I have a hard time forgiving anyone that has wronged me. It comes from my childhood which i am not sure if you all know about. I was abused phycially and mentally by my mother. My father was working and away most of the time but still he must share some of the blame. I will try but this will be the hardest one. Holding onto all the hate is not good..i will try and do better.
4-Trying new things..lord help me on this one too. I am a creature of habit..lol
5- New hobby- Brittany left all her knitting stuff here so that is number one on my list..
6- I love to read but i find myself online or watching Netflix movies. Time to give the Kindle more of a workout.
7- Well i have this one taken care of i am running the Zombie Run 5k in May but i am looking into a few more..
8- Random Act Of Kindness- I usually do this when i am out. It's never anything big..but like today i helped this older lady with her bags ..she was having trouble getting them into the back of her car..people were just walking by it was sad to me anyway..so i walked over and asked...she was so grateful and it made me feel so good that i helped her..
Little things mean so much if you will only try..
So that is the short list.. Everyday i will do something that will make me into a better me this year because for so long i have put myself on the back burner..it was all my doing but it's time for a change..
Thanks for listening and helping me along the way
