I have been thinking a lot about next year, and setting some goals, and really where I want to focus my energy. 2014 was kind of a wash. I mean I learned a lot about myself, and went through a lot of life changes, but I am ending it just about the same weight I started it, which is what it is. I know why, I have talked about why, no need to rehash it now.
But I am entering 2015 with a lot more knowledge about myself. I know what works for me, I know what makes me feel good, and I have realized that that, above anything else, is what is important to me right now. I don't want to be a bikini competitor. I don't want to run a half marathon. I don't want to do anything huge and life changing with 2015, I just want to be happy. Eating right makes me happy. Working out makes me happy (which is something I never thought I would say ever). Treating my body with respect makes me happy, and I think THAT has been my biggest take away from 2014.
I think there is a lot of pressure around the new year to set goals that scare you. I have tried that (hello, half marathon??) and I realized it didn't work for me. It scared me too much, so much that it scared me into inaction. It didn't motivate me, it immobilized me, and I know that now. I know this is going to be my best year yet because I have learned so much about myself.
So what can you expect in 2015? Consistency. Determination. Completely boring, not spectacular goals, and lots of em.
