I'm very late writing this, but hey at least I got it done!
I tracked my food every day this month, for I believe about the sixth month in a row. I can safely say this has become habit!
I stayed within my caloric range 22/31 days this month!
I logged in 1755 fitness minutes. I didn't quite reach my goal of 2000 minutes but given the busy nature of the month I think I did okay!
I did cardio 30/31 days this month.
I did strength training 3/31 days, which leaves room for improvement.
In other exciting fitness news, today we got a rowing machine! I've never used one before but it actually looks like fun!
WEIGHT AND MEASUREMENTS
I did not gain any weight during the holidays! . . . This might be a little misleading, because I did spend a few days this month eating way more than I was supposed to and if justice were served I would have finished the holidays around 157. But a little friendly help in the form of a stomach virus came and undid all my would-have-been lardy gain, so I maintained. I finished the year averaging 154.
OTHER DECEMBER ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Ever since I created a table showing my income and my expenses, I have spent my money much more wisely. I did not go overboard for the holidays or even with the after-holiday sales!
I read Jane Eyre and A Game of Thrones, the first of the "A Song of Fire and Ice" series. Each were about 800 pages.
I wrote 3 blogs of an intended 10. It's better than 0 but still not a number I'm proud of.
I had a fantastic Christmas and New Year's with friends and family! That's not really an accomplishment, but it was still the highlight of the month!
DIRECTION FOR JANUARY
Write 9 blogs, meaning 7 to go in 11 days. Something to shoot for, eh? And I still have to ...
Publish my resolutions so I can't wriggle out from under them.
Write 1 Orient Express blog.
Write 3 new chapters in the novel.
Empty 3 boxes this month.
Do 8-12 strength training sessions this month.
Do a minimum of 16 cardio sessions this month, an average of 4 per week.
Take measurements once this month so I know where I stand at the start of the year.
Reach or pass 153 by February!
