Word for the Year

Every year we make goals, last year I wanted to lose weight but I didn’t make it a goals just a wish and because of that I actually gained weight. So now that my foot pain is worst and it might get better if I got the extra pounds off and my clothes are too tight and other things I have noticed that I don’t like. I’m really making this a goal this year. I even have a plan to make it more interesting such as paying myself instead of the Biggest Loser group my office is doing. I also want to make it more of a life style change than just a number to reach on the scale. I had been thinking about this for a couple of days and thinking I wanted really to be healthier. Yesterday while blog surfing I saw a post about a word for the year, here & here. So guess what my word of the year is, you guessed it. Here is my outline of how that feels to me.

Word of the year Healthy

My quotes to help me.
Although difficulties and poor choices may surround me, I have a clear vision of what to do and how to get it done. I am not distracted.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
~Melody Beattie~

This will be a hard goal for me; I do love food and enjoy eating. I’m not one of those people who eat to live, I live to eat but I need to change that paradigm. I know I can do it, that why I’m bearing my soul to all about this I don’t want to leave me any loop holes.
I weighed in this morning and Friday will be my weigh in day and blog entry day. My tracker is on the side bar, down a little by my quilt goals. I didn’t want it right at the top.

A great New Year to you and good luck with your goals.
