When I began I was hoping to write something every day for 365 days. Let me tell you, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I didn’t hit 365 but I think I am around 175, so I’d say I’m almost half way there… I’ll call it a valiant effort… maybe I would have made it there if I didn’t have school or a crazy toddler running about… but who knows, maybe not. Either way it has been an amazing experience for me.
It is hard to believe that I started writing this blog a year ago. So many things have changed… and so many things have stayed the same. I am sad to say the weight has not all come off… yet. I guess my fat cells are just as stubborn as I am… but I haven’t given up either. I am still moving forward and I will get there… guess I’ll have to change the name of my blog to 365+ Days to Fit… the saga continues. 😛
In looking back at the year I can see there have been many small successes so I’m feeling good about that. I have grown as a person and I feel like I am a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, auntie and friend. I continue to make a conscious effort to improve my surroundings and my day-to-day life. I feel like that effort has had a domino or at the very least a butterfly effect on those around me. I hope I am right.
I appreciate the comments and stories I have received connected to this blog… and to me. I know there are times that have been good and times that have been tough but I feel stronger knowing you are here with me; I hope you feel the same. I know that not everyone is going to sit down and share their life and thoughts in this type of forum but this has been such a healthy, happy space for me. It has allowed me to open up about things that I’m proud of, scared of, protective of, and all the rest. I thank you for your support and your interest and your wisdom and your friendship and I am really excited to see what the next 365 will bring. What a year…
Eat right and live well friends!
