End of the Road #BehindTheBlogger
End of the Road
Finally, 2016 is coming to an end, an end of the road so to speak. Honestly, it can’t come soon enough for me. I’m excited about new adventures and getting rid of the old and bringing in the new. New friends, new exercise, new goals.. a lot of new and interesting roads to travel. I’d like to strengthen my relationships with old friends and family, creating new roads and new fun.
End of the Road for Weight Issues
I’ve managed to achieve a lot of things during 2016. I’ve dropped a few more pounds, managed to tone up, and strengthened up a bit more. The next fitness program was put out by our local hospital. I’ve teamed up with five of my friends in a challenge to meet our goals and break out of any slumps we might be facing. The challenge involves exercise, diet, and being accountable. My goal this time around is to lose another 20 pounds and tone up and build muscle. I’d like to make 2017 the year that I no longer have to constantly focus on weight loss, but to hit on weight maintenance. Reaching my goal weight should be possible this year if I can stick with my regimen and be more diligent. Goal writing, planning, and hard work can make my weight issues less significant, planking more fun, and everyday life more enjoyable.
End of the Road for Anxiety
2017 would be a great year for me to learn to better deal with anxiety and all the health issues it causes. Anxiety has lead to so many problems in my life. It stops me from being able to completely enjoy each day. It exasperates my heart issues and causes heart palpitations and migraines. Anxiety prevents me from taking a lot of steps that I so want to take, but am frightened to actually make. I am a creature of comfort and routine. Routine is so important to me and helps to keep me sane. More than anything, though, I’d like to break out of routine and just have more fun. I refuse to allow my anxiety to keep me from something ever again. I chose hope.
End of the Road for Negativity
I’ve no desire for negativity in my life. Life is hard enough to live without a constant influx of negativity. I’m trying to rewire my thinking to better stay positive. Most days, my friends say that I’m a force that helps them stay positive. Lately, I’ve had to face a lot of hard times and deal with a lot of negativity. It has plagued my mind and taken me where I have no desire to be. The time to be positive and cheerful is back and I’ll be taking more steps to achieve this (volunteering, helping others, playing more with my friends and family, attending church more regularly). Learning to not bottle my feelings and sharing what is going on in my life may be difficult, but it is something I’ll be doing more of.
Moving Forward into 2017
2017 will be a better year because that is the only option that I’ll allow. No matter what might happen I’m going to look forward to being more positive and cheerful. I’m going to work towards my goals and get to achieving them. It’s time for me to find my happy and keep it. Oh, yes, I’ll find a way for that I’m sure. I’m already well blessed with a loving family and a few great friends so I’m already on the right path. Now to keep moving in the right direction and help myself and others.
What are your goals for 2017? Anything you plan to have an end of the road for?
Here is wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
