It's a New Year Baby- Writing my own Horoscope!

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Here is part of the horoscope I found online:

"You may find yourself drawn to a more austere, sensible and -- yes -- healthy lifestyle now. Eating to live, instead of living to eat, becomes a viable theme. In order to keep up the energy to support the heaps of projects you've got brewing (as per usual), you'll need to make sure your health and vitality are top notch. Embracing a healthy lifestyle makes everything possible and keeps your life running like a well-oiled machine."

I have read my yearly horoscope year over year. I was supposed to get engaged in 2012 (wrong), I was supposed be become super athletic in 2012 (wrong). I love that my horoscopes are filled with inspiration and happiness for the new year however, I have been unable to achieve these things with out making it happen for myself. So this year I am writing my success into my horoscope by committing to eating to live and incorporating more exercise into my routine.

In 2013, I will be doing a few things (1) working on a healthy lifestyle by eating right and exercising; (2) incorporate art into my life by learning to play my new guitar and taking more pictures of those moments that I want to remember.

I will post weekly micro goals. New Years week- Exercise (3 strength workouts & 2 cardio workouts)

An Unexpected 800 Calories Burned on Day I needed it.

Thursday, December 27, 2012



The answer to "Does Running Late Count As Exercise" is YES. At least when that person "running late" is your snow removal guy and you get home to find you can't get into your driveway. Two hours of shoveling heavy wet snow burned a little over 800 calories according to Spark People's fitness tracker. Since I hadn't made it to the gym yet today, I suppose I should send the snow removal guy a "thank you" card especially if that ends up leading to weight loss.

Problem #1 for the snow removal guy ... girl on a diet + new years resolution may = cancelling this years hired help.

Did I enjoy shoveling...Truth = Not really

Did I like anything about it = Yes, I like the calorie burn and spending time outside with the dog; especially when I would otherwise be couch bound.

So I suppose I should send a little note to my continuously unreliable snow removal help for giving me the motivation to get it done myself by forcing me into burning unexpected calories and getting one step farther away from going off of the "fat cliff". The plan is to reduce calories, increase exercise and start the new year off with a balanced diet.
