Keep Looking Forward
Thursday, December 27, 2012
2 of 36 workouts complete and I'm feeling better about most things. Stalling and backsliding on weight loss goals is unnerving. But I love this time of year and the sense of renewal it brings. I'm seeing lots of reflection and planning blogs. That's great! It means you haven't given up.
There are 58 days left until my birthday. I started a 9 week fitness program that I'll complete just after I turn 40. I'm done setting weight loss goals. I want the number to be lower than it is now and that's good enough. What I really want are all the benefits that come with the lower number. I won't chuck out the scale. But I will remember it's another reference point, nothing more. My focus is on fitness minutes, steps, elevating my heart rate, mindful eating and portion control.
If I enjoyed running, I'd be scheduling some events for 2013. I need to think about some longer term targets I can set. Maybe a number of Zumba classes to attend. I sorta quit going a few months ago. If running isn't your thing either, what milestones do you have in mind for 2013?
I also need to improve my relationship with my husband. I don't know why I always shy away from this challenge. Fear of failure? But inaction itself is failure, silly girl.
Get fit and reconnect with my husband...those are my two focus areas next year. Now to put my action plans into place!
Happy 2013, everyone!
