November 1 Happy Dance!
Sunday, November 01, 2015
I am a goal setter.
I am a planner.
I am a cheerleader!
I am a quitter.
Those are all things that I know about myself! I love to plan, to visualize and to get so excited about the plans I hope to achieve.
I start out with loads of energy and 'go-gettiveness"....
I run out of steam and quit.
I am trying to add one "I am" to my permanent list...
I am an OVERCOMER!
I set a goal back on October 1st. I wanted to get below 170 pounds. I haven't been there in a long time, and when I have gotten there, I haven't stayed very long.
I reached my goal this morning. 169.6. I did a happy dance! WooHOOO! I made it.
Now I need to figure out how to rev up my overcomer and keep on going, and not repeat history and quit.
The biggest difference that I think will push me forward is that I have a milestone birthday coming up in February. I will not make all the goals I had set for myself- I spent too much time dilly dallying this year. But, I realized, some progress is better than no progress- and I can make SOME progress!
I know it is the hard season for losing weight...parties, food at work, baking- yummy food will be all around me. I needed to blog about how wonderful I feel today so that I can reread this when I am not feeling so great- so I can remember
~how great it feels to believe in yourself!
~how powerful it feels to achieve a goal!
~how excited I am to think of the next goal I will achieve
~how much I want to move forward!
~how happy I will be to star in my own comeback/success story!
Blogging is so personal- I do it to document my journey, like taking notes to refer to when I need information!
Everyone has their moment in the sun- when they really start believing in themselves and trying...and succeeding. I am so hopeful that THIS is my time.
And I hope that you find your time, too!!!! Happy November 1- HERE WE GO!
(On a personal note: I haven't seen my oldest son since Aug 25 when we dropped him off at school. I miss him terribly. He is 20 years old today!!! I always feel like a hypocrite when I talk to him about working hard and fighting for his goals, when I don't do the same for mine. I am looking so forward to seeing him over Thanksgiving...and to showing him that I started believing and living by all the words I have been "pushing" on him. He is finding his own road...and so am I!! I love being a mom...and 20 years ago today, I met the little one who would make me a mother and change my life forever! Today is such a good day!!)
