SP Premium


2013 starts here.

Sunday, January 06, 2013

After being ill since New Years day, today I'm finally beginning to feel better. We had a morning at the beach with the dog to blow away the cob-webs and walked for an hour or so. This afternoon I have been catching up on laundry and doing a little knitting, still working on my socks, but knitting in the round is slow going for me. I can't wait to cast on my chunky sweater.
We have had lovely family meal together this evening, full of all the stuff we should not be eating!! So it feels as though my New Year will start tomorrow. DH and I are back to work and the girls are back into their routine - the holidays will be over.
I've been mulling over my resolutions for a while but have decided the best course of action is to "keep on doing".
I'm pretty good at regular exercise because I enjoy doing it, so I will continue with my running, make sure I get to the pool each week and of course my daily walks with my dog are mandatory. Added to this I will add SP videos for strength and flexibility. I think this equates to about 18000 fitness minutes for the year so I have reset my tracker accordingly. My weight stayed pretty static all last year so in 2013 I would like to get rid of at least 10 pounds.
My downfall is food tracking. I find it such a chore even though most of what I eat from day to day is already stored in favourites. So if I'm making a resolution - food tracking is going to be it.

    So glad you are starting off the New Year well! I just finished my goals for this year, and for the first time are thinking more realistically. I have been getting back into things slowly, but at least I am moving again.

    Yeah, I know that it shouldn't be so hard to track food when so many things are in your favorites list but it still takes time and energy. It is a chore - you're right. Good job to focus on that, then! Glad to hear you are feeling better - it's a bummer to be sick over the holidays.
    I'm doing the January Jumpstart challenge to make myself add more of the SP videos and change up my routine some more. They're really a good addition to an exercise routine.
    Happy New Year!

    I think it is appropriate that you start today (the 7th) since yesterday was the 12th Night and the end of the Christmas season anyway. I am so glad to know that you are feeling better!

    I think your plan is a good one...I have started tracking again myself. I completely understand about it being a chore and then on the flip side...sometimes I become obsessed and that is a pain too! I think it is good though. I have far more success when I am tracking.

    Happy New Year to you!!!!!!

    Sounds like a great plan! I'll also be focusing on food tracking to drop 10 lbs.

    Have a great 2013!!
