December was tough. I tended to reach for comfort food and overate at parties. I was working on Physical Therapy for my knee, so I didn’t do all the workouts that I really wanted to do. I was very saddened by the loss of some of my favorite celebrities and artists and the junk in the news (disappointed by the Election and deeply saddened by the tragedy all over the world). I was homesick and hormonal and emotional, waiting for that Christmas miracle of Pregnancy, only to be dashed yet again.
I had a fabulous birthday getaway in Palm Springs! We decided to get tickets for my sister’s destination wedding in Mexico in April! I pet sat and enjoyed a Cousin Christmas and New Years and date nights and drinking! I shouldn’t complain! I did get some workouts in.
I just now feel it’s time to go Paleo!
My word for this year? BELIEVE.
I tend to doubt and get down, so my way of coping is being a hopeless romantic and idealist who is optimistic about life to cover up the negativity.
Good books that I want to read or finish!:
In Due Time, Caroline Harries
Present Over Perfect, Shauna Niequist
The Broken Way, Ann Voskamp
When God Doesn’t Fix It, Laura Story
I still am reading a couple E book novels…;)
These are not really resolutions, just things I’m reminding myself to work on:
More reading, less screen time
More loving me, less negative self talk
More of Him, less of me
More “Thanks!” Less “Sorry”
More time with Lefty less iPhone/TV
More prayer less chatting
More God less of my own self
More debt paid less junk
More date night less girls night
More girls night less me time
More hiking less lounging
More JESUS less social media
More Scripture less News
More church less gossip
More worship less talk radio
More stretching less tension
More Heaven less secular
More Holy Spirit less politics
More books less articles
More loving, less critical complaints
More social justice less shopping
More donating, less to clean!
More listening less advice
More family time less binging at parties
More exercise less sitting
More vegetables less starch
More water less sugar
More meditation less clutter
Oh and “Don’t take any $&/+!”;)
Happy New Year! I am so thankful!
