We survived the holidays... Whew...
I haven't braved the scale yet, but I promise I will hold myself accountable by doing so tomorrow. Eeek! I visited California (my homeland, lol) for two weeks, and except for one hike and a few veggies, it was a pretty naughty trip health-wise. I hit all my favorite old haunts for chile relleno burritos, french fries, and partook in many the holiday dessert bar (and bar-bar). It was fun, but the junk-food party os OVER! And I'm ready, baby!
2012 was amazing. I set out to lose 20 pounds and I lost 40! That is something I have tried and failed at too many times to count. If 2012 was the year I lost the weight, 2013 will be the year I get fit.
I've re-read my earlier blogs (for inspiration, reminders, etc.), and almost every post references strength training and how I'm going to get around to it sometime soon (never). I kicked cardio and diet's butt last year, but never found my stride with fitness. I know I can do it, and I know that this is the year.
MY LITTLE SISTER GOT ENGAGED!!!
We spent a lot of time with family, including a really lovely dinner in Newport, where we watched a boat parade (I was actually pretty well-behaved that night- crab bisque, grilled fish, and ONE glass of champagne!):
And on New Year's Day, we went to Stone Brewery in Escondido in a limo (watch-out!):
It was a great month and so much fun, but I like a fresh start. I am really looking forward to being even healthier in 2013- like climb mountains, run, jump, stop jiggling healthy!
In 2013, I wish you all love, health, and happiness!
