The day after Christmas was dedicated to saying goodbye. We spent the majority of the day packing up years of memories in boxes shipping them out to Buffalo, Syracuse, Millwalki, and Northport. The contents of my in-laws’ lives have been spread out and taken in by the rest of us. Today marks the end of an era:
It was strange to see all the empty rooms, knowing that I would not be back there again. As we close out 2017 I am struck by how many things have changed this year. I am grateful for having my family, friends, and especially my husband as I live my crazy life.
So, if we have this one life to live – I think it’s really important to examine what it is we want to accomplish. My personal goal for weight loss may seem like a minor thing to some people- but the more I think about it the more I realize that it’s really not. This is my body, the one I get for my whole lifetime, I want to keep it in the best shape possible for as long as I can. Yes, it is hard to lose weight and keep it off but there is no reason why I can’t do this.
I am glad Christmas is over, it was challenging to stay within my points. I did eat and drink but now I’m glad that’s done. I did miss spin class today, but I booked a class for tomorrow morning so I feel really good about that.
As we look to 2018 let’s do as John and Yoko suggest – “Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear.” Let’s make this the year where we all identify and work towards reaching our personal goals. More tomorrow…
