2016 is about to come to an end. Are you ready? Every year, I look forward to a "restart" where I dedicate probably 99% of my time day-dreaming how the new year is going to be the best year, yet, I ALWAYS FAIL! Does that sound like you? Why is it that we can make incredible goals for ourselves but fail to actually implement the necessary changes and discipline needed for success? Well, I can tell you why with my long list of excuses. WORK, no time, work, too tired, work, personal life,...did I mention work? Work consumed most of my life, on top of my own personal life's demands, and I'm pretty certain that's common for most of us.
This year has been by far the toughest time of my life. I started off the year with calling off my own wedding 3 weeks prior and having absolutely zero goals and no resolutions to look forward to. I planned a future, a new home, being a wife, having children and getting ready to tackle life with my soulmate. But instead, I had to say goodbye to those beautiful plans and do everything I could to not let the loss I felt get the best of me. I committed myself to my job as a means to cope. Work environment was not the most positive one either, and I felt like I was drowning in unending negativity--my own, my colleagues', and my boss'. I was a wreck, and a mean one. My health was compromised--mentally, emotionally, and physically, and I needed help. I eventually collapsed at the airport due to major vertigo and extreme fatigue.
Every year I tell myself that I wanted to get better, healthier, happier, stronger, skinnier, and younger (^_^). But I have never had more conviction in my life, having lost almost everything I looked forward to this year, to do just that. It's time to say goodbye to my self-pity, the negativity, and all of those destructive habits to my health. For the new upcoming year, I'm going to start it off right. I'm going to make a habit, and make sure it's a good one. I'm going to start with what I eat.
