Taking on 2013 and hoping to revitalize my life

Getting Started

Today is Day 1 of my “Revitalize Me” project.

A friend of mine took this picture of me over the holidays, it is not flattering in the least. But I am hoping that maybe it will help to be a catalyst for my 2013 project.


My resolution for 2013, for lack of a better word, is to improve. And since that is rather vague I’ve come up with a couple of steps. These will probably change as I make progress but I am starting small to ramp up and see how I make out.

Tasks for the year:

  1. Eat 5 fruits or veggies/day
  2. Get a minimum of 3 days of exercise/ wk
  3. Blog 4/ wk (also at a minimum)
  4. Do 1 action weekly to encourage myself and/or to improve somehow and/or to create a more positive outlook. (I think my first task will be to come up with a musical playlist with empowering songs. This may seem weird to some but I think listening to some positive music will help me re-focus when I need it. I’ll share them when I get at least 10 songs in there.) So I guess I need to come up with another 51 actions to add to my list. Stay tuned.

So day 1 of life improvement … well, it was a bumpy start. I got some exercise, 40 minutes of shovelling whether I wanted to or not 😉 but then I was too tired and had no groceries so ate bacon and chocolate for supper. I kid you not. I wish I was.

Tomorrow, there will be grocery shopping to fix the no groceries excuse and get me started on task #1. Sigh, I’m already having issues. Hopefully it will get easier and I’ll manage to fix some very bad eating habits. But I have had a long time to create them so I will try my best to change them over time. And I hope to have a much more flattering picture to post at the end of the year.

I think I will create a Weekly Action page to list my 52 actions. It may not start out with 52 but will grow as they year passes. Feel free to offer up some interesting self-improvement or development tasks. I can’t say whether they will make the list or not but I’m open to ideas 🙂
