Setting goals and maintaining them is a difficult task. This is why on New Years I do not make a yearly resolution because I have broken so many. As I stated in my first post, I am kinda of miserable. I work a Job I am not passionate about and my time is so limited between the job and family that I do not have much me-time. Sounds like a Boo Hoo doesn't it?
Well I have earned the right to Boo Hoo a few times. I have given my family a pretty good financial security throughout my life because I know that is very important to me and to them. I have an upbringing like many people when it comes to not having money but because I had enjoyed life so much, I did not noticed or cared.
After many years of losing my self by just going through the motions of life I feel I need to do something about it to see if it will change my attitude and happiness. After all, I do believe that God wants us to enjoy life here on earth before we go into heaven which is said to be absolutely perfect. Growing up and into college I was in really good shape. So much so that I thought I could conqure anything. That feeling is so embedded in my memory that I crave it all the time.
Now that I am in my early 50's I know I only have another 20 years before I am too old to enjoy anything. Even at my age I can still run faster than my 12 year old boy, play sports pretty well and feel that I am not too old. The only thing is that I do have a gut (Not too big) and a few aches I use to not have.
Today I rode my excercise bike for 40 minutes at a good pace and fast walked on my treadmill with weights in my hands. I figure if I can keep this up for several months I could go from 220 lbs to 178 lbs. I want to do this everyday if possible unless I get a cold or go on a mini trip, ect.
I am going to strive to enjoy some of Gods pleasures he has put in front of me everytime I get a chance. Hopefully my life will change for the better and I will get out of this funk.
