New Year, New Beginning

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

I can't believe another year has gone by. It seems like every new year starts with me making a "resolution" to get back on track and lose this unwanted weight. The difference this year is that I started planning on how I was going to do it about a month ago. I started getting workout plans together and plotted out a strict workout schedule for the next 2 months. I have very specific goals each day. I figure if I can concentrate on each day individually, it might help me accomplish my goals easier. I started today with a sequence of squats, push-ups, sit-ups and then strength training with some dumbbells. I even talked my daughter into going to the gym with me and walked on the treadmill for almost an hour. All in all, I feel good about my first day! I won't think about tomorrow's schedule until tomorrow and have forbidden myself from weighing in until next Saturday so that I can get a full 10 days in. No pressure! Hopefully by then I will see just the results I need to keep me motivated. Happy 2014! Happy me!

    You can do it! Take it 1 day at a time. You will get there!

    I think you are headed in the right direction. One of my biggest problems in finding which direction to go in my strength training. If you have that direction, follow through is all you need. emoticon

    My advice to you is to take measurements of your body as well and check those when you weigh in. There are some weeks I don't lose any weight but I do lose inches. So doing both helps to keep me motivated or lets me know I haven't done enough. Keep up the great work!
