#MondayMotivation Lifestyle Change

As cliched as it is to start lifestyle changes in January, I’m going ahead and stating my intentions loud and clear: I’m ready to change my life! There are several factors at play that have made today The Day, but most importantly we’re done with holiday eating for a while. It’s far too difficult to give up sugary treats in December than it is in January. If you’ve been around long enough, you also know that I have the intestinal fortitude to uphold a vow for Lent; therefore, I’m obviously not the type of person to quit so easily. And now that we’ve cleared the air…

I intend to become stronger and healthier this year. I can give up foods and drinks no problem — but I have difficulty maintaining an exercise routine. I know this is going to be an uphill battle, and I don’t intend to start hard and fast. I intend to build up my stamina and strength so that by December 31st I feel much more capable than I did on January 1st. This intention is also meant to give me back a sense of control in my life. In the last few years, I’ve felt so out of control in my life, and I’ve learned that no one really ever has control of anything. At any given moment, everything could be gone without a shred of notice. I cannot control others or situations, but I can control myself. I’m ready to change my life.
