I’ve been remiss in reading blogs lately, but I was catching up a bit this weekend during my weekly manicure and stumbled across an idea for a post that I thought was fantastic (and timely). I love the idea of a fall bucket list. So here’s mine…
Get back to the Gym
Kitten-proof the Office
Take some Fall photos
Make Chili and Cornbread
Visit the State Fair
Have our Annual Photos taken
Buy new chairs and Enjoy the patio
What’s on your list?
Maybe it’s the cooler weather, maybe it’s some weird form of seasonal nesting, maybe it’s just one too many mentions of something that struck a chord with me. But I feel like I need to get a move on. I want to get back to fitness and working out, get back on track. I feel like the life derailment is over and it’s time to head out of the station. I’m ready for new challenges, new goals, new expectations for myself. I’m starting today, because there’s no better time like now. And like everything, I’m just going to take it one day at a time and form new habits. Habits that serve me better than the ones I’ve sunk into, habits that will allow and encourage me to be more, do more, live more. I can’t make dreams happen if I don’t do my part to move towards them.
Am I the only one feeling this way?
I’ve reached out to my old walking buddies. I’ve still got my gym bag packed, now to venture back to the gym. I’ve got my bottle of water sitting next to me. I can do this.
It’s more than just fitness and health, but that’s where it really all begins. You’ve got to lay your foundation, in order to create your temple.
And I’ve started thinking about the rewards. All those things that will inspire me and motivate me. Training for a race like my friend Sherri. Hiking Heleakala. Wearing boots! Taking classes from Rachel Brice.
It’s a powerful thing.
Because it really is so short – so it’s time to make it the best it can be.
So, today is the day that my life takes a new direction.
