First things first,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Today is the first day of 2010. I have decided my ultimate goal for 2011 is health and happiness. Achieving this means weight loss through eating healthy and exercise. The gym will be my friend. Calorie counting will be my habit. One year from now I hope to be welcoming in 2012 at my goal weight and having the time of my life.
I have decided the best way to take the first step to optimal health is to quit bad food cold turkey. Starting tomorrow, it’s nothing but healthy food and moderation for me. More fruits, vegetables and lean protein. Much more water again… and perhaps some lemon water, tea, coffee and crystal light. The odd diet pop for a treat (instead of chocolate?).
I look forward to returning to regular blogging and sharing my journey with you. I would consider myself successful each day if I feel proud of my actions and provide some inspiration to all of you.
I wish you nothing but the best for 2011 and success in all you do!
I leave you with a photo of my Christmas Eve miracle. My niece, Ivy was born on my favourite day of the year (December 24th). Born at 29 weeks and weighing 2lbs 9oz. She’s perfect in every way and doing well. She’s up to 2lbs 11oz now. Simon is going to be such a great big brother to her! I wish I could say I’ve met her… but they live in Chicago. My parents are there to help out, but I won’t get to see her until I go down in a few weeks or so. Even then, she’s in the NICU and aunts aren’t actually welcome. One day I will meet her, hold her, hug her and kiss her… and share photos of her!
