Mile 0

I love new beginnings…

I'm starting the new year with a clean slate. I've developed a lot of healthy habits over the past year, and 2013 is the time to put them all to good use. Tomorrow morning I'm going to weigh in and take measurements, and we'll see how far I can get!

I'm going to take 2013 a week at a time, but for today I'm focusing on the big picture:


To accomplish that, I will:

* Put in a minimum of 1,000 fitness minutes each month (approx. 30 minutes each day)

* Eat as cleanly as possible; consistently track what I eat and stay within my calorie range

* Run more; make running dates with friends to keep it fun and challenging; put aside $1 for every mile I run to put toward something fun; train for a half or two

* Spend as much quality time with DH and DD as possible; plan fun, low-cost activities

* Be present; whether I’m at work or at home, I need to focus on the tasks at hand

    I love this entire BLOG beginning with the mile marker for zero.
I too am beginning a new adventure in 2013 with my DH and DS. I hope to be happier, more rested, fit and firmed up, and at a healthy weight by the close of 2013. I will begin today as well to track progress by taking measurements and logging mileage tracked by my Fitbit. I hope to reach 2013 miles by walking, jogging, hiking, biking, stepping and running in the coming year.
I hope you share your progress on the goals you have to be the happiest, healthiest you. I love your positive attitude. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
