We are 1 week past the new year here.  Depending on what you started, finished, took on or resolved you may already be able to see some changes.

This morning I woke up and did my Yoga for the 8th day in a row.  I weighed and measured myself.  We will keep those numbers private, but let’s just say that they are just as they should be.

After I dropped my youngest off at school, I decided to head to the rec center.  We have a family pass and I hardly ever think to use it.  This morning, I thought I am not subbing today, why don’t I just go and use the track?  Well I walked around that track for nearly an hour, over 4 miles.  LOL, yes I walk pretty fast.  I listened to a whole Podcast and just smiled the whole time.

Here I am 1 week in and I haven’t given up on anything yet.  That is the Grace!  My word for this year.  In just 8 days, I have already faltered.  It would’ve been easy to be like, well….there goes that.  I don’t plan on doing that this year though.  I am going to give myself grace when I mess up, or when I take one misstep.  Then I will just pickup and start from there.

It should also be noted that I am on book 6 for the year already.  Man, do I really dive head first into books at the beginning of each year.  I sure do hope that I will keep up with this.  On my way home from the rec center I swung by the library.  I checked out 3 books.  I also have 3 books on my bookshelf that I need to read.  I plan to read all of them before the 3 from the library are due.  Now, I am just adding other books that I would like to read to my Amazon cart.  OOOOH, that reminds me that Soulless is on it’s way to be delivered by Amazon today.  Make that 7 books total that need to read.

I have written in my gratitude journal every single day.  I am 8 days into my Bible in a Year study plan!  I have been blogging, doing yoga every day and writing in my prayer journal every day.  I accomplish more in the first hour I am awake then I think some people might in an entire 24 hours.  It is what fuels me.

This is the year that I turn 40.  I am not nervous, anxious or terrified of it.  I am so excited!  I am embracing it.  I love who I am and look forward to everything that I will accomplish in the next 7 months before my birthday, but also how much I will do after that.
