The list - Body, Mind and Soul Makeover

You can't overcome things if you don't face them.
Deal with them.
This is my year. This is my list.

  1. Get a grip on the yoyo dieting. 
  2. Instead of focusing on losing a set number of pounds, I need to focus on when I get to a better weight, I do something I've never done before. There's a 5k coming up on May 18th. That gives me over 3 months to prepare and I have no excuse why I won't be able to do it.
  3. Be accountable for what I put in my mouth. So what I ate a Whopper Combo. Just have to kill it at the gym the next day. Easy!
  4. Stop focusing on things I don't like about myself and put the focus on the things I do like.
  5. Be around people that have traits that I have or want in myself. No self doubting people. 
  6. Let go of things from the past. I've moved on from a very negative subject, but it still lurks in the back ground. I need to discover what is truly going to push me beyond and forgive.
  7. Adopt a more open mind. I will admit I can be very close minded. 
  8. Learn about and teach my children empathy. Yes I'm empathetic, but my insecurities stop me from doing good things out of empathy. Does that make sense?
  9. Break out of my shell and be crazy. A good crazy.
  10. Walk with my head held high. I always walk with my head down and avoid eye contact.
  11. Be a better mom. One that is not so easily irritated. 
  12. Enjoy my children more. 
  13. Relax.
I'm sure I'll be making revisions to this and adding more, but I'm happy to finally have some of these goals written down.


  1. I love this list - very positive and inspirational! I hope that you are able to achieve all of these goals this year. Good luck! :)

  2. Wonderful list! I totally agree, 2013 is the year of change! I also plan to get off of the weight loss yo-yo and just simply get off of my fanny! Good luck! :)

    1. Thank you!

      Yoyoing is such an embarrassment. I've lost 7lbs this year, but I feel like I can't even mention it to friends because I'm sure they think in their head "here we go again". Lose it to only gain it all back.

      I think the getting off the couch and more active is going to be winning factor this year.
