Monday....and my word for the year!

Good Monday Morning. I hope everyone had a wonderful relaxing weekend. Mine was fun, not exactly relaxing, but fun.


Last year I chose trust for my word of the year. I wanted to trust myself, trust my band, trust the process and I have to say that I did. I've been thinking a great deal about what word I would like to have to guide me through the year 2011. And I've decided on

gumption
definition:
initiative, aggressiveness, resourcefulness, courage, spunk, guts

Hey, it's not very glamorous, but it's what I need to get through the second phase of this journey. I have been at the same weight, give or take a pound for a month now. For the most part I'm eating right. (Key words here...."for the most part") I need to really give this my all if I want to see the kind of results that I want to see. I need to get off my butt and sweat. This, I know....this I haven't been doing. So today I'm asking myself for a little gumption. I want this, I really do. I know that I can have this, I'm half way there. I can get the rest of the way there, but it's likely going to take a little more effort than I've been putting forth. I've got spunk, I've got guts....I just need to excavate them. Onward folks!
Big Hugs!

I copied your word from last year? And I didnt even know it! Lord, I am not very original. You will know I am a true copycat if next year I say "hmmm...I think my word for the year will be GUMPTION!"

I am officially going to stop blog stalking and identify myself. I have read your blog from start to finish recently. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I see a lot of similarities in our personailities and it gives me a huge dose of confidence knowing that you have been successful.

Gumption...what a great classic word. Am I weird that i still use it in conversation along with my personal favorite, "Moxie"? All I know is that you have it, Tessie!
