The brand new year is upon us - 364 more possibilities for new adventures. I'll admit that I imbibed a little too much, ate a little too much, and stayed up a little too late last night, but it was a wonderful celebration and I never regret an opportunity for joy. I'm now two stickers deep in my journey, and my friend got her first sticker for reaching her goal of not drinking soda for three days in a row! I'm ready to tackle this new year head on and with gusto.
My husband and I spontaneously organized the craft room the other day and it was glorious. We now have an actual space to exercise our creative hobbies and it feels so good to have taken back a space in our home from the clutter monster. It's been hard to admit, but after everything that happened in the last few years, I've been really depressed. Motivation has been hard to come by and so many things have fallen by the way side, but now, I'm ready to come back swinging. Starting next week, I'm returning to the gym with two personal training sessions instead of just one. I'm also going to really push myself to start swimming again.
I was a swimmer in high school, and the smell of chlorine makes me nostalgic. There is something magic about gliding through the water, tucking into a flip turn, and pushing off the wall. I haven't been able to do a real flip turn in ages, and I really want to get there again. I absolutely want to lose weight, but it's about so much more than that. I want to be healthy and strong. I want to see what I can really do and this year, I'm all about testing the limits. Look out 2019, this little sea cow is taking to the ocean.
