There are times when you make a goal and then have to commit to that goal by telling someone your intention. I told my sister, my mom and a few family members and now I'm saying it in this sort of public place.
Right now is the heaviest and most unhealthy I have ever been in my life. And THAT'S including the years I was a cigarette and pot smoking, alcohol guzzling balls-to-the-wall party animal (that was SO last week, lol). I've let go of caring about myself amidst a pommeling of injuries, kid problems, financial challenges and various other obstacles. Depression was starting to become all too familiar to me. I have become a junk food consuming couch potato (seriously?) I want to be so finished with all of that and move in the direction of happiness and self love again.
For the next however long, my blog will be predominantly about my goal. I'm motivated, dedicated and quest for the best (stole that from my Weight Watcher leader of yesteryear).
So here it is . . . a fellow yogi suggested I watch the move "The Way" on Netflix. I did (highly recommend) and it has changed my life. I have always been a bit of a dreamer and outside-of-the-box kind of girl. The summer of 2016, when the twins are 18 and no longer my responsibility, I will be taking at least 6 weeks away from my life and traveling to France to walk The Way. It's about a 500 mile journey from France to the Atlantic Ocean in Spain. It is said to take about 4-5 weeks, depending on how many miles you log on each day.
This is my quest. This is my "pilgrimage" (word they use to describe the journey). This is personal and I'm determined. Whether I make this journey alone or with a companion, I don't know or care at this point. I have a LOT of work to do to prepare myself in every way.
Wish me luck!
