Commitment Issues

I will be the first to admit this.  I love life.  I love challenges.  I love projects.  I suck at commitment.  More so following though than making them.  Aside from my family and marriage of course.  Yes it is true.  I have so many things I want to do, but I something always comes up. I get distracted and behind and then just give up.  What am I talking about?

I once had 3 blogs but after neglecting my family and photo blogs I decided to combine them here.  Convenient, yes. But I don't post many photos anymore.  And mostly I just complain about my family.  I am hoping to change that this year.  See!  I'm doing it already.

I am also going to follow the Drs orders and walk everyday.  Well, more than to the bus stop and back.  Its only at the end of the road.  But if he says walk, then I need to walk.  Right?  I haven't had the time yet this year, but tomorrow I will!  What!?  I will!

I'm also going to eat better.  Hopefully I can stick with sharing my menu plans more often and that will hold me accountable   I can even take pictures of my food and share them.  If I remember.

Last year I swore I was going to take more time for myself and be more "girly" as David called it. FAIL!  I wore eye shadow on new years eve.  I chickened out on the heels though.  Will this be the year I trade in my jeans for skirts and dresses.  Highly unlikely, but hopefully before 2014 there will at least be one dress hanging in my closet.

This year I am committing to getting healthy.  Now I have a pretty sketchy track record as you can see.  But at this point any effort is an improvement.  I think the reason I had such a good year health wise was because  I stopped pushing myself so hard.  I knew my body couldn't handle running anymore but I was determined and I pushed anyways   That always leads to crash and a 3 day recovery.  This year I will take it slow.  Even though I have the itch to just jump on the treadmill and bust out 3 miles as fast as I can, I know I need to walk before I can run.  I know I need to eat according to the diet the nutritionist laid out for me.  I had a big ole steak before the new year, but will stick to my limits from now on.  And while I will not swear off fast food, I will make better choices in what I order.  I'm really committed this time!

I should also do a bit of organizing.  Seems that my mind is as unorganized as my house is.  I feel like all I did was ramble on and on like I've had one to many drinks.  I promise I haven't.  I have noticed my encephalopathy has been creeping up on me and that is something that I can not joke about.  Sorry to be so scrambled today.  Its been a long week.  I picked up the new Janet Evanovich book and so hopefully having a good book will help me unwind.

I do have to point out that I have been pretty good at the Instagram challenges though!  WIN


  1. I hope you are more committed this year than in the past! :) I am right there with you on making commitments of that sort and not sticking to them. Not even close. I've barely made any goals just b/c I know I have to be truly motivated to follow through and I can become that way at any point during the year.

    Looking forward to reading about your progress!

    And I've added your blog to my blogroll! :0


    1. Kate. I am hoping to be more committed too! I think this summer or every few months I will do a progress post just to stay on top of things. Thanks for stopping bye!
