How You Can Tell It’s January!

There are more ways than looking at a calendar to tell that it is January!

Times-Colonist Dec 26, 2015

  1. The beginning of the “Diet Season” – January!
    – My blog post hits are spiking over the moon for the “Fat Flush Diet – Even Dr Oz Says It Works” . This means that I admit that I, too, have started my standard “No White Food Diet”. It’s the low bad-carb diet. All the fruit and veggies I want as well as all the meat and cheese, too, and…real Greek yogurt, the stuff with fat in it.
    Of course we have to finish all the “Goodies” in the house and the high calorie wines, FIRST!
  2. The hopeful making of New Year’s Resolutions.
    – I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions any more but many, many of those around me do. Then, within 32 days (they usually last the month out) they break them.

  3. Committing to exercise.
    – I have to admit that this is the most difficult thing for me to do. Just walking is the easiest and I have all the equipment I need: plain cane; carved cane; beautiful walking poles and a walking partner. Sigh, a couple of times I’ve been out and felt great but sore later. Yep, I am still getting back into the shape I was 12 years ago before the replacement of two hips; one shoulder and a knee. Exercise has always been dangerous and painful. A fall in the Biggest Winner program dislodged a screw in my hip and it needed re-replacing(revision). But, theoretically, I’m good to go now.

    This might actually get me to commit!

  4. The review of your/my/the past.
    – January is indeed the time: TV, News, Facebook etc. review what has happened in the last year and often the entire past. They/we look for the good things and often the bad pop up, too. But in reflection we learn that event the worst, no-good, very bad things have given us good things. Good things like: knowledge (so we don’t do THAT again); confidence (if I did this once I can fix it and do it right); support (incredible caring feedback and offers from many friends, family and acquaintances); and love (I have so much love given to me, I am surrounded in a protective cushion of it everyday)!

These are four of the ways I know it’s January. I know it’s the start of a new measurement of the new year and my life. The days are starting to get longer and I’m thinking of the future. I won’t need a measuring tape to record the successes, blessings and laughs I will count from now until the the end 2016, and the month is not even half over.

Thanks for listening and there is more to come.  ;D  Diane
