This year will have too much up in the air for standard goals, and I don’t feel like boxing myself. However, I do have some intentions that I really want to put down to paper (so to speak).
Here is what I want to get from 2018.
This year I will continue care for and about my body. Being pregnant is hard on you, mentally and physically. As someone who takes pride in my appearance, I struggled so hard the first time with my daughter. This time I’m giving myself more of a break, enjoying the moment and understanding what recovery looks like.
This year I will get back on the horse. While I’m still ambling around on horseback now, I have every intention of resuming a more ambitious program after I recovery from baby. I’m aiming for July to be back in the saddle, and hopefully August for lessons. I rushed back after baby #1, trying to get O sold. I don’t need to do that this time. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
This year I have nothing to prove to anyone other than myself. I did better this year comparing myself to others, but there is always room for improvement. I am my own person, moving forward in my own life, and not everyone is living the same path. Give myself a chance to succeed at whatever I’m doing, without scaling myself against others. Being better than I was before, is more important than who I am better than.
Bottom line: If you want something bad enough, make it happen.
Also, throw a cute little boy in there for good measure. 16 weeks to go!
