No Goals.....Just Life......

Hello all my lovely friends. I finally found some time to sit down and look through some well overdue blogs, and checking out every one's goals and plans for the new year! First off - good luck to everyone and I hope I can be a helping hand on your path in 2010.

I love the new year, while its truly just a date on the calendar, one can't help but feel the renewing start of a whole new year to keep your journey going, or to start down a new path.

I'm awful at resolutions, in fact, I'm not sure I ever bothered to make one. Goals aren't really my thing either! Long term is difficult for me - I have a hard time even telling you what the week might hold. While this may seem to be a personality downfall, I prefer to call it a "survival technique". My job does not allow for much planning - I knock em down as they throw em up - and I'm married to a "planning challenged" farmer (enough said). And then you can ask any of my friends, and especially my sister, I'm an instant gratification person. If I get something in my head.........NOW is the only way for me - my brain isn't hardwired to WAIT for anything!!

Somehow though, in 2009, I managed to join Weight Watchers, join the gym, and make a healthy change in my life, even though the goals and "resolutions" weren't exactly "planned out".

The past couple of weeks, I have slacked in all departments of my healthy lifestyle, but I'm not beaten! Not by a long shot. In fact, my lack of commitment to a long term goal allows me to not see the past couple of weeks as failure to reach my goal, but as a pit stop along my way. And now I'M BACK!!

One of the things that helps me stay on track when I am challenged by the lack of a "goal" or "plan", is my twitter relationships. You can't be a cheerleader and encourage your friends to do something if you aren't doing it yourself!

Exercise and eating right makes me feel STRONG!! That's a good enough goal for me!! And to all my planning and goal setting beautiful friends..........I'm right beside you.......every step of the way!! xoxo
