Ok, I didn't get to the gym today. I don't think I should let this lapse define me. I can go to the gym tomorrow, or the next day, or both. This year I will not define myself by my failures. I know this is what I've done the past 53 years of my life, but this year is going to be different. I'm sitting on the couch watching Biggest Loser while typing this blog. I'm sitting on my butt. This show has the fattest people I've ever seen on it. If they can change I can change. I am going to think positively about this.
I listed five items on ebay and four of them are selling. This makes me so happy. I'm clearing clutter. I would like to have the beautiful homes I see in the blogs of women I respect. I need to start shedding items in my home I no longer need, love, or treasure. I can do this. I read a post by a person on my newsfeed that said "if you have more than you need you are stealing from another." Now, I don't think he was right about this. Having more things, food, money, etc. than you need is not "stealing" from anyone. It is, however, gluttony. I think the shedding of excess things will go along with my shedding of excess weight.
Now, is this the road to happiness? I don't know the answer to this. What I do know is that good health and a clean orderly environment will open me to doing things that make me happy.
