So out of the darkness comes the horror of “New Years Resolutions”… it sneaks back into my consciousness and I want to run and join weight watchers, or some other program, but have they worked for me in the past? No, but it is almost January 1st… shouldn’t I be committing myself to a new program? For the first time, NO… I find myself recommitting to me and only me. I have to make some budget changes, which means dropping my gym membership (I have a treadmill, stationary bike, pilates machines all at my disposal) and saving $65 a mos, as well as I am letting go of my $50 per time housecleaner, monthly savings of another $100, so that is $165 less a month I want to spend on something that I can take care of myself. My health insurance went up DRASTICALLY, so my $165 a month cutback is just a drop in the bucket. I have set new goals for myself… a 5K in the spring… to drop 20 pound by my daughter’s high school graduation in 2012. I lose weight slowly so between these 2 goals I should see more movement in the scale. I have learned so much from Sparkpeople, and I am really excited for the New Year (not dreading it – like before) Happy New Years everyone!
