I enter this new year with brand new excitement. I leave behind past regrets, resentments and worry. I take with me experiences, education and positive relations. I am renewed and reinvigorated. Although technically only a day has past; what a difference a day can make, when you DECIDE to do something different. Thank God for choice! I started anew before the new year... holding myself accountable for my own joy.

I want to encourage you to make new strides. Set realistic measurable goals; and you WILL see a difference. For example don't just say you will lose the weight, say "This month I will add 3 fresh fruits/vegetable a day to my diet & remove one very unhealthy food from my life." I guarantee your body will thank you! When challenges arise... (and they will) reflect on your goal. Decide whether your goal is important enough to move through the challenges and manage your response.

Don't retreat when trouble arise - This is YOUR life~take charge and manage!

In the past I have made hasty & poor decisions which countered my dreams instead of creating something special. Now, I need that mindless activity to relax; but this time it will be the exception & not the RULE. This year, I choose to make healthier, well thought out decision... sprinkled with a touch on spontaneity to reach my goals....

What about you...

That girl, Ang

I love how you worded instead of saying I'm going to lose the weight, but instead say this month I will add 3 fresh fruits and vegetables a day and remove one very unhealthy food. Now THAT'S doable!

I have set and mapped out some "goals" for 2009, but I keep them in my personal calendar. This year I'm making one of those vision boards, so I can visualize what I want and have it "in my face" every day!

Happy New Year!

That's what I'm about, 3 times a year - trying to make my daily routine a bit more healthier...
Try to stick up with you, diets and health routines always go better with 2 ...don't you think so ?
