Happy New Year

So here it is. 2018. We had some friends over last night and it was fun. Thankfully, everyone left by 10 pm and we headed to bed by 11 pm.  Fireworks went off until 1:00 am but then it all got quiet. As I stated in a previous post, I haven't made any big resolutions or sweeping changes this year. I feel like  I've made a whole lot of changes this year and I don't really have the urgent need to make any more. There are still things I need to work on (as I step over books and backpacks on the floor by my desk) but I think I'm in a mental position to actually make those changes. So that is something that will happen this year, but it's not a resolution, it's a process.

I did weigh and measure myself this morning, I've been planning to do that for a week or so, and was happy with where I'm at. I've lost a significant amount of weight, enough that it would have been cause for huge celebration back in my weight watcher days. More important is that I've lost inches and am feeling amazing. Absolutely. Amazing. So for this year, I want to just keep on doing this.  No goals, or weight loss by a certain date, none of that type of stuff. Just keep on doing it. Actually, I want to get better at it this year. I have the meditation and sleep nailed. I need to master the steps and the food. Neither one will be that hard, I just need to be more consistent with them. These are my big plans for the new year. I also want to become a better teacher. That means planning and doing things that need to be done. For all of this, I need to use my mindfulness. I need to think sudden random decisions through and not just react. I'm getting so much better at that, I just need to keep working on it.

So here we are. No big resolutions, just continued improvement every day.
