My New Year's Resolution

Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Ugh. I feel like *crap* from all the *crap* going into my body and a general lack of time. Sadly, my school is on a college campus so I have access to the fancy-pants gym *with* a pool, but have I had time to even darken its doors? No.

I am a pathetic person.

My New Year's Resolutions - 3 parts.
1) Get back to tracking food. That's how my whole weight loss process started. I can carve out a little time for that
2) Stairs at work. 1 flight but 5x at lunch and 5x after school. What's that in terms of time? 15 min each? I can manage that. No clothes changing.
3) at least get to the fancy-pants facility and see what they have in terms of group classes. I would *love-love-love* if they had a spin class (schedule is not posted on line) but at least *see* what they have available.

For me - the key to a successful NYR is Make It Do-able. Make It Specific. Make it Time Sensitive.

Lets start a mini-meme! What are your NYRs?

I did't make any NYR. I'd like to try harder/better/smarter with my eating.

I still have to work on mine.

    My NYR is to keep doing what works, which means 1. tracking my food, and 2. exercising daily. I have been doing it for the most part, but haven't been tracking everything I eat the last 2 weeks... time to get honest again.

    I hear you on the busy schedule! I still make it to the gym or do something at least 3 times/week, but it isn't enough to keep up with my appetite!!!

I'm not good on New Year Resolutions. My attention span isn't long enough! But I can promise to support you and in supporting you, I'll do a better job of sticking to my plan.

    Now those are some S.M.A.R.T. goals. Keep going strong and you'll be successful sooner than you think.

    I guess my one New Year's resolution is to have a more mellow and accepting attitude in the New Year. And to be conscious of it, and the decisions I make.
