It has been one year since I decided to make a change in my life. This time last year I was unahppy with how I was running my own life. I had bad eating habits, I hadn’t worked out in years and didnt’ even want to be social because I felt bad about myself. These thoughts hanging over my head on a daily basis forced me to do something about it.
My journey has not been just about me. There are so many people who have helped me along the way. For example, I was lucky enough to have worked with people who were health consious. Being surrounded by good habits helped me stick to my plan. I also befriended a co-worker whose husband owned a gym and was introduced to a great program that challenged me, brought me confidence and new friends.
My family has been at every race; even the New Years Eve run in 15 degree weather. My Aunt Rita who always said “Go Liz Go” on my Facebook posts never missed a beat. My friends I have met along the way who understand the struggle and the workouts have been a great support. It never occured to me that I would meet great people that are important to this change. And lastly, those of you who follow my blog. Most I know but a lot are strangers. How awesome is it that I get to share my story and not feel like I’m the only one? Amazing!
I am a better me than a year ago. I’ve learned so much from others and learned a lot about myself. I continue to set goals for myself and continue to learn. This is an ongoing process just like life.
If you decide you want to be better then create a goal and then a plan. If there is something in that plan that does not work for you, alter it but stick to your goals.
