Think I got some motivation..my HS reunion is in March
Thursday, December 22, 2011
And I want to be close to my HS weight....an obtainable goal but the weight is distributed differently once you get older..... a sad fact.
I don't have a problem with getting older...I'm wiser now, with many life experiences. My birthday is the day after Christmas..... I'm turning 57. I don't feel that age so to me it's just a number... but a number I can't ignore even though I try to.
I've never been to a class reunion yet. I wanted to go but they fell at times when I had other things/plans and I really didn't care if I made it. But I want to go to this one... and I want to do it in style. Shallow perhaps but I've been connecting with people on FB lately. People who I knew in HS but didn't keep in touch with although I always thought of them as "real" people. I was never part of the "in" crowd... I didn't want to be. I have a lot of negative memories from HS so I guess I just blocked out/ignorned that part of my life. Now I'm ready to face it head on...and make peace with it. It's all part of my journey to discovering the many components that have influenced my life up to this point. There are great things...and some not so good things...but they are my experiences up to this point and maybe I should take a peek into my past to understand where I am today and why I have become the person I am. I know it's just a bit of my past but the past shapes the person you are now. And I know you have the power within you to keep the things you like about YOU and change the things you don't.
I also know that there are things in my life that I have no control over....providence will decide for me.... but I CAN control my reaction to them. And I chose to be lean, fit and healthy in body, mind and soul and to move forward with a positive outlook on life.
And I plan to go to my 40th HS reunion with my head held high, looking smokin' (lol) and coming away from it feeling good about my choices in life and reconnecting with the people that I WANT to keep in touch with.
With this in mind I need to set some goals because March 2012 is not that far away.... and after that it's beach season and I would so love to wear a swimsuit that looks great on me! Yes... I'm shallow and a bit self absorbed....but I think I'm entitled at my age....lol. Besides, if I'm gonna work hard to be healthy why not strive to look my best.
Keep Sparkin'... it works my friends.
