With this new year, new decade - it has brought a new fresh attitude. I realize that there are things that are out of my control, and the only thing I truly can control would be my own attitude. I make my day great, or otherwise.
So far, 2010 has brought me happiness and smiles. I am sure there will be moments where it seems unbearable, but right now, in this very moment, I want to enjoy the time I have.
At work we are starting the "Biggest Loser". You weigh yourself each Friday, and calculate the percentage of weight lost for the week. I competed last year, but my teammates and I found more enjoyment in beer and wings, then loose pants. However, again with the new year, I realize I can't hide forever in this body. My dear friend and I have matched up and plan on taking on the entire workforce. We win not only a positive attitude, but cash money. Seriously, what a better motivator??
I purchased the Jillian Michaels DVDs about 6 months ago (gasp!). They are still neatly wrapped in the orignal plastic, as my attitude 6 months ago was I was too busy. On June 4th, to be exact because I checked amazon.com - I ordered the following:
Workout: One-On-One Training with Jackie
Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred
Exhale: Core Fusion Body Sculpt
Jillian Michaels: Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism
Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones
I want to be a runner. Maybe not a marathon runner, but I would like to be able to run away if someone was chasing me. Not just give up. I think at this point I would pass out within twenty seconds...it would be easy for the attacker - whether it was a dog, man or elderly woman. Any person would definitely find comfort in the fact they would win a race against me. I would like to get to a point where I feel comfortable in this body, and know I am doing my best.
