This weeks prompt : Goal

This week’s Five-Minute Friday prompt is ironic since my this topic has been on my mind a lot.  I have small goals, big goals, health goals and wealth goals.   Weight goals and not being late goals. Okay seriously Yes, I know I am not Dr. Seuss so here goes my five minutes now…



Timer Start

I used to set goals and resolutions every new year only to realize that I am tired of the same old goals and not really making the changes that I kept wanting to happen. So, this year I decided instead of making a bunch of resolutions and plans that will likely just get forgotten like previous years I decided. 


I made a commitment not a resolution . I made a commitment to take control of my health. For the last few years it has been spiraling out of control.  Here it is June and I have been working hard at it but I this past week was in the E.R. twice and am feeling like I must not be working hard enough at it if I am still struggling this much.

I am not going to give in to defeat though. I am going to stay determined and take back my health. I have reached out for accountability partners; my family is ready to see me back on my feet and driving them crazy.  One of the doctors told me I was a ‘medical mystery’.


That is not really comforting but I guess if the shoe fits, I will just have to wear it and solve the big mystery.  I am not calling it a goal because like in a soccer game that requires keeping score. I am calling it life changing.  I am not calling my nutritional changes a diet; I am calling it a healthier eating plan.

Due to life being crazy and being ill I missed the last two five minute Friday’s  I was looking forward to doing the one with the prompt Name. You can find the ones by other bloggers here.
