“You’ve got to make a conscious choice every day to shed the old, whatever ‘the old’ means for you.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach
This can mean so many things for me: staring a diet, a savings, or purging of stuff. Every day I have to make a conscious decision to exercise, eat healthy, and not have chocolate. Every day I have to remind myself not to get anxious. So many “old” me’s most of the time I don’t know where to begin.
So today I will begin a new day with new opportunities to shed part of the old me. Relying on God to guide my path. (Psalm 119:105 – Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.)
What does ‘the old’ mean to you?
Have my desk heros….all is well.
Have finally settled in to my new location for work. Two weeks in and will need more time to get used to everything. So far the change has been good.
Last Saturday, David and I participated in the Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers Mud Bug 5k. It is a great fund raiser, and got in another try at a 5k. It was hot, and I hadn’t been working on my time or walking in general.I finished at 52:35 which was a minute less than the Lucky Leprechaun 5k that we did in March. Again, just to be able to complete it is so much more than what I would have thought a year ago.
So only one more to do for the year to reach my 5k goal (3 this year total). I think we will end up doing 5, but not going to jinx it.
NoBloPoMo 2012 -Day 5
New routines. The experts (whoever they are!) say that it takes 30 days to form new habits, or new routines. I think I am swaying to their side on this one.
I have been on a lifestyle change for 2 weeks with a reduced caloric intake (Prism Diet). So far it is working on shedding some pounds, and my attitude towards food in general. These are huge for me, and I am going to stick to it this time! =)
Today is a new routine for me because I am physically going out to a gym to walk/workout. Ugh. I hate both of these in a confined setting, but with the weather turning colder if I prepare my attitude to the gym now by the time winter is here I will be used it. ???? Well, that is the plan anyway.
I am starting out slow, only 30 minutes of walking, but it is a beginning. I apparently need to do this for 30 days to make it a new habit.
So what habits have you changed to make your life better?
