Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

Wishing all of you a wonderful 2013! Let this new year bring fresh starts, less procrastination, great health, prosperity and lots of love and happiness.

I'm sure all of us can say that 2012 went by so quick, and many of us can say that they don't feel like as much was accomplished as they would have liked to.

Life is so short, and each and every one of us is capable of doing so much with our lives if we just push ourselves a bit more.

I want to look back at 2013 by the next New Year and be able to say that 2013 was a great year. I'm confident in myself that I can accomplish just that.

One of my big concerns this year is looking after my health better. I'm not getting any younger and I really want to put an end to bad eating habits and lack of regular exercise. I'm very famous for yo-yo dieting, and I'll stick to a change of diet for a few months, get to where I want to be and then I'll lose motivation and go back to where I started. After losing my Dad to heart disease, it really makes me think more about what I want to put into my body. I want to live a healthy life, and starting this year, I know I will succeed.

I think the biggest thing is giving yourself tangible, realistic goals. Maybe you want to fit into a size 2 by your birthday. It seems far-fetched  but you feel like you won't be happy until you get into those size 2's. Maybe you fall off your diet for a few days and you gain a couple of pounds, or maybe you see your weight plateau, and you've lost your motivation because you feel like you'll never be able to reach your goal by the time you gave yourself. It's like trying to run on a treadmill at the highest speed for the first time. You might want to, but it takes time to build your endurance. Everything takes time. Nothing happens over night. Set smaller goals for yourself that you will be able to reach and you'll be more successful in the long run. That goes for anything.

Good luck to you all!!

  2. I'm Counting by 12s this year. A group of women and I have joined together to do 12 things each month. Everyone has their own list, but it's a great way to try something new, get out of the day-to-day routine, and get support from others. It would be great if you checked it out.

  3. Happy New Year girly! I totally agree with you on goals and keeping them realistic. I actually started mine before new years. I just want to get back to healthy happy me. With kids, I have gained extra lbs that have made me so unhappy but I just wasn't super motivated to get me back to me since I was so focused on my family. Something just clicked when I turned 30, I knew I needed a change and even though it took a little while to start the change, I am a lot happier and on my way to my goals. One of my other goals is to continue my blogging and make it better(any tips welcomed!) I have other goals too but I won't write you a book on them!
