Let's start 2012 with some good news. I lost 2 pounds over the holidays. I said I was going to lose and I did it. And Im pretty proud of that. I did have cookies, drinks and snacks over the holidays but I also continued running and lifting weights and I did watch my portions and try to make good choices when possible.
So where I am today? I'm sick with a nasty cold. I can't hardly breathe when doing cardio or running, so I've had to give that a break. I'm going back tomorrow to try brisk walking. Hoping that flies okay. I haven't been sleeping well because of the cold and that's decreased my stamina considerably. Which is a bummer. I like starting a new year off strong and I've had to delay my strong start.
But I'm hoping that I can start my 2012 this week.
People make resolutions to lose weight and get healthy every year. In 2011, I kept that resolution. I took up rollerblading, climbed to the top of Yosemite falls, starting running, lost 15 pounds, and learned to cook with a lot of new vegetables. It was a great year for me. I want to keep that streak alive in 2012.
I will lose another 15 pounds, I will continue to challenge myself with running, with eating healthy foods, with being a great, fit role model for my girls. 2012 willbe a great year too and I'm ready to get going with it.
