The Old

“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?

Blessings!

Mud Bug 5k

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.

Blessings!!

New Habits/Routines

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?

Blessings,
