So, here I am 2 months later, 15 pounds heavier and 2 relatives short. November was rough and then the holidays and grief from losing my aunt and Grandma hit at the same time. It was the first Christmas of my life that I did not spend with my Grandma. The loss hit hard, and so did my emotional eating- and Lord knows the options were plentiful.
Enough of the sad stuff... for Christmas I got a yoga mat---and I want to start to do yoga this year. Anyone have yoga DVDs they would recommend? I also got Zumba for the Wii...so I will add that to my exercise routine as well as our elliptical we purchased last year. I have set a personal goal to rotate yoga, Zumba and Elliptical throughout the week doing each at least once! Another positive: I registered today for my first 5K for next summer, and I'm considering signing up for another within the next week or so.
It is a new year, with new goals. My husband and I have made a deal. If we both meet a very reasonable goal of weight loss (I'm saying 40lbs and 20lbs for him by 1/1/14)....we will go on a vacation together. This way we will help encourage and support each other, because who doesn't want a vacation with their spouse sans children for losing weight and feeling better about yourself???
So, I apologize for my absence this past couple of months. I am anxious to get back on track and realize my short-term (exercise) and long-term(40lbs this year) goals. Happy New Year everyone! Let's make this THE year.
