I have lots of good reasons to get fit and focus on my health: my kids, my spirit, my general enjoyment of life.

What I don't have is a good excuse for giving up, or "treating myself" to things that don't get me to my goals.

Everyday is a good day to start out doing what's good for me, and for keeping it up throughout the day. Everyday is a good day to remind myself that one slip isn't a good enough reason to fall off the wagon.

My goal this year is to not give up. Enjoy all of the journey to good health, don't just focus on how I will feel at the end, but on how I feel right now, right this second. Because taking care of myself, my mental health as well as my physical health, has no end until the VERY end.
