“Anyhow, I’ve learned one thing now. You only really get to know people when you’ve had a jolly good row with them. Then and then only can you judge their true characters!” ― Anne Frank
This was in the break room this morning. First day back to work in the New Year. I understand how baking and sharing is a form of love, it’s just I struggle to find the logic in sharing something that is a vice. Something the majority of us struggle against. Except the world would be a dim place without any cookies. Just the word ‘cookie’ is such a happy word. Think, Cookie Monster.
Doesn’t get much more loveable.
The 90 Day Challenge is up and running. It is Day 2. I feel sleepy as I write this, imagine it’s due to all the gluten and sugar and tequila draining from my system. Not that the wheels completely came off over the Holidays, but there were moments of indulgence. When you’re with friends and family and feeling festive it just feels damn good to join in the merry making. It just feels good.
It’s a part of the connecting process.
But now I’m ready to get serious. I’m ready to clear my head and my body and reach some new goals. It doesn’t happen all at once this clearing of mind and body. It’s a slow determined process. Small steps at a time. Day by day of one healthy choice after another. Momentum being gained in the direction you are determined to head, towards a more healthy strong clear-minded you.
There are four specific goals I would like to achieve within the first 3 months of 2013, the 90 Day Challenge period. Achieving these specific goals will solidify the ground beneath my feet on a new path paved in the direction I intend to go:
Get a real pull up
