SO, let’s celebrate a new year. This is the day that we can brag that already this year, I’ve walked 2 miles EVERY SINGLE DAY this year! Haven’t missed a day, yet. AND… not only that, but I haven’t missed a day yet in taking my multivits. Very good, very good.
I’m excited to say that I expect this will hold true tomorrow, too.
What I would love to say, speaking of health-goals, is that I could/would/
should run a marathon. Aint gonna happen. I follow a blogger who can proudly say she’s run a marathon. And her story says the ol’ “IF I can DO IT, so can you!” I read her story, but I don’t believe I can do it, no matter what she says. I won’t set myself up for that, because I really don’t want to run 26 miles in one attempt. Main reason is, I hate the cold. I cannot stand being outside exerting, sweating, yuck, in the cold air. It’s just not going to happen. so, my training schedule is kaput, right there.
And, that’s OK. I am happy with a goal of walking at least 2 miles every day, on my inside, room-temperature treadmill. Goals are supposed to be a stretch and yet possible. This is possible. What’s also very possible is the skipping of one day. That turns into 5 weeks. So, it’s not a distance thing, it’s an EVERY DAY thing.
I hear all of you who don’t do the resolution process, but I personally love it. I love January. For all of these reasons: the promise, the hope, of NEWNESS! And, I actually can work myself up into setting this feeling of hope and promise and newness (do I repeat myself?) on a new MONTH and often, on a new DAY.
Since, this rambleness is getting excessive, I will end with a quote from a movie. From an overlooked movie starring Julianne Moore, The Prize Winner of Defiance Ohio. I LOVED the can do, overcoming, positive thinking mindset and what it can bring, LOA idea of this movie. Actually, forgive the resigned sense of fatigue that this expresses, it really does have a positiveness to it; start fresh again tomorrow – when this day fails to bring you what you needed…
I’m tired of this day, I’d like a new one.
I’m off now to get on that treadmill, read my book, slam down those vits, and get on with this beautiful day and if I need this quote later, that’s all good, too. SMILES!!
