Motivation for a New Year

I am hoping that this year I accomplish some first. I want to learn how to sew. I want to finally take guitar lessons. I want create. I start every new year will grande ideas of being thin, learning a new language, reading books every day. I start, try for awhile, and eventually fail. Last year I made no resolutions. This year I will try again to make and KEEP one. Just one! I started Metabolic in November. When I followed the program stictly I lost 8 pounds. Of course Thanksgiving, birthdays, and Christmas have happened and I just can't seem to say "No" to sweets sometimes. Needless to say I haven't lost (or gained) any weight in a few weeks. I really want to lose 15-20 pounds more. My goal to have this weight gone is March 1st. I hope if I get rid of the weight by then I will have a few months to prepare myself for summer. I want this to be a permanent change, not a temporary one. I have also decided to start teaching yoga again. I stopped teaching back in April because I just didn't have time. I was so busy doing so much I felt yoga had to go. What I didn't count on was that I depended on those classes as much as my students to keep me in shape and to keep my mind in balance. I need yoga. Of course I thought I'd continue to do yoga on my own, but I didn't. I didn't have the accountability anymore. Depression set in, weight was gained, my body started hurting again. It is amazing how a simple practice like yoga can help me so much, but it does. So with all that in mind I am stepping up my yoga practice and getting my business up off the ground. I don't have a name or plan really. Just looking for some clients. I hope that this time next year I am a new person. God is working on me all the time and this year he has worked through me like never before. I have learned so many lessons and I look forward to what He will teach me next year. Bring it on 2012!
