Wow – Christmas and New Year is finally over. It’s been so great to have two weeks off and then it’s also been terrible because I gained 1.2 kilos. I walked almost every day and while my first week was way off (with so much chocolate in the house it was hard to stop) but by the second week all the sugary foods were moving out and I was getting back on track. However, my biggest problem has always been portion control so I guess that needs a little more work in 2017.
I used to be a workaholic – and for years I found holidays to be an “interruption” to my work schedule but I don’t feel that way any more – must be getting too old. I go back to work tomorrow and I’m not looking forward to it. I find this unusual too especially since this is my dream job but I’m not sure it is my dream anymore. Don’t get me wrong I love the work and the place I work but some of the people are just so different and I’m finding myself worrying a little more than I should. I really want to feel settled and that’s not the feeling I get when I think of work.
I need to stop worrying for one. Worrying only takes away the happiness. I know tonight I won’t sleep very well and that alone will frustrate me and I really used to love Mondays;mainly because everyone else hated them – now I’m one of THOSE PEOPLE and I hate myself for it.
I have NEVER liked New Year’s Resolutions because, for me, they always fall flat but as the month of January is where we start I must find something to get passionate about and once I have that the rest of the year starts to fall into place.
It’s 2017 and I’m going to be a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister, a better mother and more kinder to myself. I am an important part of my life and I need to acknowledge that fact and work on that accordingly.
