Resolutions and Inspired Goals

Kelly (one of my all time favorite bloggers) is hosting "Show Us Your Life" New Year's Resolutions and Goals this week and I'm participating for the first time. I really wanted to share this with you anyway so this was a perfect time!

2009 was the most difficult year of my life. Even the years leading up to it were very hard. Because of the stress and sadness, I didn't any effort into myself or my own health.

My resolution is to get a fresh start, get healthy and lose weight. (I have 2 closets: the one I use right now and the one full of of clothes I can't wear. I'm ready to get back into them)! I am ready to give this to myself. I want to feel good about ME again. I have been strong, but have not been strong enough for myself. This year I am standing up for me.

With this resolution I have set several mini goals and even rewards (including a Dooney & Bourke bag, Reebok Easy Tone shoes, a wii fitness video, etc.) to get me to my goal weight.

I'm inspired to make my ultimate goal to walk in The Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure.

"60 Miles. 3 Days. 1 Goal."

I am walking in memory of my mom. I am beginning to train for the event in Tampa, October 29-31.

"Everyone deserves a lifetime." My mom deserved to meet her granddaughter.

LOVE your resolution. I'm not up to a 3 day yet, but I keep saying that I'd like to do a "Race for the Cure" you've inspired me to make this year the year!

Your mother was very blessed to have her sweet daughters and I cannot help but believe that she is very near to her new granddaughter! At all times she will be watching over her.
