Winter warm-upPosted: January 6, 2012
It is a beautiful, sunny, warm day here in the Bogs. The cats have been following the sunshine around the house, immersing themselves in the warmth and the light. I’ve been doing some sun worshiping, too.
The snow is melting and it’s a mushy mess outside. It’s going to get windy and colder tomorrow, but the temps will still be above freezing. This is the mildest winter we’ve had in a long time.
It’s resolution time. I know most folks make their resolutions on January 1st, but I was not feeling well at the time so I decided to wait. Along with Letting Go, there are a few other things I’d like to accomplish this year.
One of those goals is something that ends up on the list every year. I nudge a little closer every year. This year I’d like to make like the goddess Nike and Just Do It.
It is time for me to drop down to my goal weight. I’ve been fussing with this for too long, with a few too many ups and downs. Yo-yo’ing does not do a body good. Plus I’m tired of this same resolution year after year. It’s time to put it to rest.
I’ll continue to take it easy this weekend to make sure I’m fully recovered, and get a fresh start on Monday. I intend to ease back into my exercise routine. I’m looking forward to it. My body likes to be in motion, and responds well to exercise and healthful foods.
That’s it from the Bogs for today. Nothing much going on, to tell you the truth. I’m going to head out to the porch in a little while to watch the sunset. Care to join me?
The place to start harnessing your power to determine your destiny, to achieve any intention as well as lasting fulfillment, is your own mind.
