Tick tock goes the clock…so what are you doing with the time?

Last October, I had a revelation.  An a ha moment if you will.

Time is passing me by…and it’s going a helluva lot quicker than I thought.

Shorty is now 11, and Tiny is 6.

They’re nothing learning new things, both good and bad, and here I sit, still the same.

Same look. Same weight. Only one additional stamp in my passport! (This one hurts me the most)

So what’s a girl to do?

Resolve to make the same changes as the year before?

Starve herself in hopes of moving the scale?

How about none of these.

What if, instead of limiting my calories, I found something I loved to do more than my desire to eat those chocolate chip cookies?

What if, instead of complaining about what I see in the mirror, I choose to love myself instead.

2018 has been full of plenty of ups and downs. But the best takeaway, I think, would have to be the massive amount of introspection I’ve undertaken.  I’ve learned what makes me tick.  Where I went wrong in past relationships.  Where I veer off path in my current.

I learned what makes my parenting awesome, as well as areas where I fall short.

I love where I am in my journey.

So the next step in my journey is to take care of my physical.

Away I go…
