Walking from my Winter Wonderland

Ten days into 2014, and I am ready for spring.

I've spent the bulk of this year so far not working on my resolution, not cleaning my house. Instead, I've been prepping and surviving a massive winter storm that hit Indianapolis. Not just stocking up on milk, bread and ice was managing employee and patient communications for a major organization in our community. All while juggling kids who were trapped indoors during -30 wind chills and unable to go to school, let alone play outside.

Friday's here. And I'm tired. And so ready to walk from my winter wonderland.

Thankfully we're blessed that warmer temperatures are on the horizon. The 30 (positive!) degree temperature today were such a blessing; and even with rain, I'm embracing this weekend in its entirety. No time on the computer; instead, we'll be coaching and playing basketball games, stomping in slush to sell Girl Scout cookies and hopefully enjoying the warmer weather and a less hectic time together (one that doesn't involve the phrase "Please be quiet! Mommy's on a work call.")

I'm ready to start my resolutions, and I'm refusing to beat myself up for these last days I couldn't make the time to taking the steps I needed to do. Instead of being upset I didn't exercise or read my Fitcee email of the day - let alone execute the day's goals - I made the decision to put it on "hold," and start fresh when I could commit to it.

So tomorrow marks my unofficial start to 2014. As the winter weather is behind me and the kids are starting to head back to school, I'm ready to refocus on taking care of me and my family. After a few good night's sleep, I'll have the energy to begin.

How are your resolutions coming along?

Thank you for saying this. I was upset about only getting 2 runs in last week. We had the cold snap though ours wasn't as bad as yours.

I'm going to let that go and focus on doing better this week. My kids have off Friday through Tuesday. I want to get some fun trips in.
