2015 . . . The Year of Quality!

"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." -- Abraham Lincoln

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be ...

For me, 2015 will be the Year of Quality. I don't want to "do it all" -- just the best stuff! I won't spread myself thin going to every party -- just the ones I really want to attend. I won't buy every shiny trinket that catches my eye -- just the ones I know will really make an impact. I won't eat every single cookie that crosses my path -- just the ones I know will be worth it. I want to actually have fewer things and experiences in 2015 -- so I can really focus on the ones that make me happy.

I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

I guess controlled plateaus is something I came up with myself. Maybe I should copyright it? LOL. But basically I just realized that the past two years I've just pushed myself to be in weight loss mode the entire time and it wears me out. I decided to allow myself to relax every other month and it seems to be working! Hope you're having a great start to your week :)
