I shared with you about my struggle here, "Dark." Followed by months of silence. I still struggle with the head aches, but nothing like they were. They no longer define me.
Today I'm excited to write again. This past year has been a long, long road. Here we are at the end of 2017.
Are you as excited about the New Year as I am? I can't even begin to tell you how optimistic I am about the coming year. When I started this journey four years ago, I had measurable goals which really inspired me to keep going.
While weight loss is no longer my goal, I want to regain the strength I've lost and increase my energy. I've already taken measures to start this and am already noticing small improvements.
That's what it's all about. Small improvements. Let me ask you, what do you want to accomplish for 2018? What's your plan to achieve your goal? How can you measure it?
Baby steps get you to your goal. Measurable improvements, however small, keep your motivation up making it easy to stick to your plan. It's a great way to energize yourself. Baby steps get you there. Yes, it's a long road and you will have setbacks along the way. Stick with it, though, because it's worth the journey.
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:6-7
Soon I will share more with you about my new training plan, what I'm doing, and all that good stuff. Right now I'm learning from ground zero and having to rebuild my confidence all over again. It's humbling, but good.
For now, I'm glad to be back and writing again. I'm giving a short presentation on nutrition at a Women's Health Conference in January. That is exciting for me, as I hope to branch out to more public speaking. Health and wellness are topics I get excited about, so I enjoy sharing my story and helping others on their journey.
Stay tuned for more.
