Happy new year everyone! 2014 here I come. This year I put a lot of effort into exercising and eating well, even though I wasn't always successful. I had a lot of ups and downs and didnt really loose much weight but I did tone up at times, and worked to build healthy habits.
This year I am going to stick to it, change doesnt happen over night after all.
I was off the wagon for a three weeks there, overloaded at work and sick. November and December were very tough months for me. I got my wisdom teeth removed, developed a mystery skin condition (x2), got the flu and a cold, and possibly have mystery allergies to boot. I got back to binging on sugar, which is still very out of control, but I am back to the gym now and getting back on track with my diet.
Today was the first real day back to the gym in the new year and I did a Body Combat class. It was very difficult, honestly 20 minutes in I thought I would never make it to 50 minutes and wanted to leave but I persevered! I must have had 4-5 "second winds" but I finished and I am so proud! Goodlife estimates that that class burns in the 700s for calories, wohoo.
In the new year I would like to attend as many different classes as I can consistently and tone up. I would like to feel that I have control over the food going into my body and not visa vera.
These are life long goals, and as long as I never give up fully I will never fail.
