6 months ago it was cold, snow on the ground (here in the North East) Perhaps you went to a big party, watched fireworks. And a great number of us made New Year's Resolutions.
Since starting Spark last year (I've been on for 18 months) I've managed to lose a bunch of weight and keep it off. Its the second part that has been really astonishing to me. After all, I started working again which really cut into my workout time. I've maintained at the 153 mark (with normal weight fluctuations). This is less than when I got married! And I guarantee you I'm in better shape than I was 10 years ago.
I personally didnt make any New Year's resolutions because everything is just going so durned well. My goals were to maintain and keep doing what I'm doing. And I did. So a bit boring, but I really felt that there wasnt much to really work on that I wasnt already doing.
Its 6 months since New Years, so check in with yourself. How are you doing? What are your successes? Massive fails? Needs tweeking to make it successful?
Remember a good goal has an action plan attached to it
Ex. "I will lose weight by starting a C25K plan" "I will drink less soda and substitute water before 5pm" "I will work on my flexibility by signing up for a yoga class"
You dont have to respond if you dont want to (althought I'd love to hear) but its worth your own mental analysis over this long holiday weekend.
