Sigh.  My vacation mojo is waning already.  Must get back to center.

Commitment Day

Hard to believe that 2012 is drawing to a close. Truly it has been a year of challenges and changes. I am proud that I have maintained my weight and continue to eat healthy avoiding processed foods, grains and general crud.

i don’t know about you, but December always has me looking forward. The new year is always a great time for me. I look at it as the clean the house up time of year. Both figurative and literal. Christmas needs to be put away. Stuff gets purged and closets parred down. Rob and I finalize our plans for travel and we get the next calendar populated with all of our “looking forward to” dates.

Our gym, Life Time Fitness, has been promoting their 5k New Year’s Day fun run.
In addition to the run, the also have commitment day tags.


Rob has been training to do the 5k run. I am so proud of him! His goal is to do the Bay to Breakers on May 19th.
Me. I am looking at 2013 as the year to complete the weight reduction portion of my journey. I want to be at my goal weight and in peak physical condition for Bartle and Black Beard’s scuba trip in the summer.


What commitment will you make this year?

Is your goal attainable?

Do you have a compass & map to get there?

Do you need any special gear or supplies for the journey?

Who will you hit the trail with?

You can do it!!!!! Take the plunge & conquer the monkey (bridge) that’s been on your back.
