The Road goes ever on and on

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I've deleted all my 2012 blog entries (at least....i have copied them into my Journal).

Having re-read them I realised that they were full of excuses. Reasons I didn't work out or why life has been hard. I realise now that had I applied myself to this journey rather than making excuses (its too dark its too wet I'm really tired, work is awful, OH is depressed etc etc etc) i could be much closer to my goal than nowhere.

But I have decided to finally put properly into practice all those things I have been reading about this last year on spark and procrastinating over.

In fact I am nearly a stone heavier than where I was this time last year. But amazingly I seem to have held my weight over Christmas. I measured myself today and most of the measurements have gone down by a cm since the end of November. But I hadn't realised how much they had gone up since last may (about 10 cm at least) I guess that's the price I pay for adding 10 pounds or so.

So what's the plan for 2013 I hear you cry!!

I've borrowed a waterproof so the rain can no longer beat me.
I've challenged my sister to drink more water and stress less.
I am going to be walking every day bar weekends (even if I start work early)
I am going to attempt to track my food at least 3 days per week (eek)
I'm going to push push push to lose 2 pounds a week.

Its not a big plan with lots of goals. But its a plan.

After all.....the only person who can do this is me and I have to put my feet on this road somewhere and who knows where it will take me.

So I am waiting for my joggers to dry and then I am off to walk around the block!


edited to add: my other BIG goal entry is a flight abroad in December 2013. I want to sit comfortabley in the airline seat. Had a look and most airline seats are approx 17inches. My computer chair is 24 inches of which I am sitting in about 22 inches.

So the non weight goal is to get to a position where I can sit comfortably in that 17 inch seat!!
