Fresh starts

New year. Fresh start.

Ok... I admit it: I wasn't feeling so fresh on January 1st. It wasn't a terrible hangover--but it was bad enough to lead to a semi-coma state of being.

For many folks--like myself--January 2 is the official start to our 2007 New Year's Resolutions. And though I won't share them all with you, here are two of mine that are fitness related:
  • Run Half Marathon
  • Complete 10 pull-ups and 40 push-ups
So how do I plan to accomplish these--and other--goals?

Here's my self-help list:
  • I read my list of goals daily.
  • I regularly say affirmations to myself.
  • I post inspirational quotations around my home.
  • I ask loved ones to support my goals.
  • I seek assistance when I need it.
  • I'm not afraid to fail.
I'm not normally a touchy-feely person. But sheer determination has only ever worked for me once (when I quit smoking). To achieve my resolutions this year, I'm going to try and tap all parts of me: spiritual, mental, emotional and physical.

We'll see how it works out.

You can do it Morgan! Your approach to physical, mental and spiritual is the best way to go!

I love the inspirational quotes. I let my hubby hide them around the house for a unexpected pick-me-up.

Hi Morgan,

I like your goals and how you plan on accomplishing them. That's the step I usually forget.

I'm looking forward to doing the challenge with you!

And I love your approach. I've done something similar myself before. You'll pull it off!
