It’s that time of year again. It’s the new year when everyone is ready for a fresh start. My husband calls it
New year, new you.
Costco is advertising the fitness equipment and all of a sudden, the holiday cookies are gone and replaced with supplements, protein shakes, and other healthy options.
My yoga teacher, Greg, says we all have the right to be forgotten. Did the calories and binge drinking of last night’s NYE party not count? Have I been absolved of my sins? In a way, yes. We all have the right to start the day anew and we don’t have to repeat the mistakes of yesterday or even yester-year.
And in getting back to tradition, here’s my 2020 goals:
- Splits! This goes on the list every year. Let me get those splits done and post a photo. The beauty of splits is unlike riding a bike that you can never forget, splits are fleeting. One day you have them and if you don’t care for them and stretch daily, they will abandon you!
- Blog at least once a week. Would you believe that I used to post a blog 6-7 days a week? It sure doesn’t show on this site. Well, I don’t have to worry about the past as I’m going to get back on track.
- Improve tax planning. Talk about old people business. Taxes are my BIGGEST bill. Good grief. If I don’t pay attention to this, what else could be more important from an expense perspective?
- Gym twice per week. Yep, I also used to be at the Y five days a week and somewhere along the way, I started going less and less. I started playing more tennis. My work schedule changed. None of this matters. I live five minutes from the Y and I have the space and flexibility in my life to go. I’m just not making it a priority and that’s the only reason.
- Job change in 6 months. I’ve been in my role for over a year and it’s time for a change. Thankfully, I work at a place where they encourage growth and movement. They’ve announced over 400 new jobs at my office and I want to get groomed for that opportunity.
I love this saying and it sums up the new year well.
If you got a flat tire, would you get out and slash the other three tires?
It’s a new year and I may not be ready for a new me, but I am able to improve over the me from yesterday. That’s the goal!
