Happy New Year and welcome 2011!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  Mine was great and I am truly blessed!  But it is time to put 2010 behind me and move forward to make 2011 a great year.  

2010 was filled with ups and downs.  I am so proud to have restarted my weight loss journey. I've accomplished goals that seemed impossible before.  Heck, I ran a 10k.  That was an awesome accomplishment!   But the last couple of months have been stressful and I didn't allow myself to focus on the prize.  I was distracted and at times physically not up to the task.  I haven't been blogging.  I haven't had much to really write about because I felt like I've only been going through the motions of life not really invested in the outcomes.  

Thankfully today begins a brand new slate.  I've never been big on making resolutions.  It seems silly to make all these wild assumptions on January 1st only to know you'll break most of them before dinner.  However, this year I am making a few.  They aren't wildly crazy just things that I need to focus on for my overall success. 
  1. Get to work earlier.  It would be better for my overall happiness...I hope.  
  2. Get more sleep which mostly entails going to bed earlier.  
  3. Recommit to my goals and focus on the items that lead to success.  I need to track my food, continue meal planning, blog, set mini-goals, etc.  
I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings and more importantly what I chose to do to further my journey.   I still don't intend to blog everyday.  But I am going to try and be better at stopping by and reading!  Here's to a wonderful new year full of successes!

    I didn't lose all 108 last year. This journey started in 2005 and then took some detours. I am back in business now! I lost 40 last year though and I am so proud of that!!
