NaBloPoMo Finale: Resolution Edition

I can't help it, I really do want to make some resolutions: Weight Loss: The ubiquitous resolution, but it is becoming clear to me that this is important to my physical and mental health. I am tired of feeling unhappy, and I believe in the "love it or change it" philosophy. I will use the healthy habits outlined earlier to work on this. Self-care: I need to have a habit of self-care, to treat myself well and do things that are in my best interests. This includes planning meals and my time, keeping things tidy around the house, and being kind to myself. Frequent blogging: Maybe not every day, but almost every day. I like the time for reflection and the community that frequent blogging creates. Smart exercise: my latest injuries have reminded me (again) that exercise is about self-care, not about proving myself. Happy new year! Numerologically, 2012 is an "8" year for me, so here is hoping for a lot of wishes fulfilled for all of my readers, too. Thanks for being there for me!


  1. "Exercise is about self-care, not about proving myself."

    BRILLIANT! Certainly something I need to remember as I continue to work toward a healthier body and self-image. Happy New Year!

  2. I'm getting serious about losing 10 pounds. I ordered the BodyMedia Fit Link (like a Body Bugg). So far it has been great. Just a couple days into it. I started a blog about my experience with it, drop by if you are curious.

    Good luck to us both!

  3. "Exercise is about self-care, not about proving myself."

    OH JEN I love love love that :)

    This all sounds really do-able and nurturing. And really chuffed that frequent blogging is part of your plans!
