The Challenge

I didn't too much thinking about specific New Year's Resolutions. I'm always thinking of resolutions and how to find that inner peace and how to be the best I can be. We all know what we need to do and I have quite a few demons to work through....

So I'm starting off with a month of exercise and trying to hone in the eating binges. I'm off to a pretty good start. Jim and I have a challenge with Rick and Amanda and we weighed in on the first (before more birthday cake.) The couple who loses the most by percentage will be treated to a kid free night spent on with and on the buck of the other couple. I'm dreaming of what I'd like to do...and I'm wondering how R&A will put the hurt to us if we lose:( Serious motivation!!

I'm also challenging a couple of co-workers who are exercising with me during breaks at work. It's fun to have the support and encouragement. I'll keep you posted. I weighed in at both scales at 184 lbs. It's not the worst weight I've ever been but it definately inspires some change. (5 years ago when I started a challenge...I weighed in at 200 lbs.)

Okay, so I'm hoping a little wellness for my body will help inspire wellness in my mind and I'm looking forward to this new decade of change, prayer, and hope. So today, I will end my note asking for all of you to keep my uncle in prayer as he undergoes heart by-pass surgery that is complicated. I hope and pray that all goes well.
