Happy 2013! I know, I’m a day late….typical.
The end of 2012…
I spent the last couple of weeks unplugged from my computer and from my exercise routine. It was a nice break, a break that was necessary. May have put on a couple of pounds, but guess what, I am okay with that. I enjoyed myself and didn’t stress about when I was going to fit in workouts, or get my serving of greens for the day. I rested, and I rested hard.
Christmas was awesome, we spent a lot of time driving to and from Atlanta to spend Christmas with Tim’s family, as well as do some more scouting for our upcoming move to the Atlanta area. A move date which is way up in the air.
We rang in the new year quietly on our couch in our pj’s, and it was just what I needed. I was a little jet-lagged, or is it car-lagged, from all of that traveling and had to fight hard to stay awake until midnight.
Well hello 2013, you sure are lookin’ good!
On the first day of 2013, I ran. My legs and lungs and everything else were feeling the effects of all those holiday treats! Wanted to start the New Year off right though. So I followed my breath through 3 cold miles.
I am really excited about this year. What a life changer 2012 was! It was the first year that I actually stuck to a resolution, I quit smoking and started exercising. I lost 30 pounds and am in the best shape I’ve ever been in and can’t wait to see how much further I can take my health and fitness goals. I mean, seriously, I became a runner. Something I never pictured myself doing, but I did it. I fell in love with it. I feel better, I look better. I dove head first in to the health and fitness community, and have begun to feel like I know what I really want to do with my life!
I achieved so much in less than 6 months in 2012, and I have twice that amount of time and motivation in 2013. So bring it 2013, this is my year…Yee-Haw! don’t ask, just kind of came out…
- Run a half marathon – this is my big goal for the year! I’d like to day a race around my b-day, the big 3-0 will be here in a few months…eek!
- Practice yoga, at least 2 times per week
- Become a certified personal trainer – just a small part of my new career goals!
- Eat cleaner and greener
- Improve my photography skills – take an online class, or read a book
Find MY healthy balance, the
happier HAPPIEST, healthier HEALTHIEST me
What are your goals for the new year?
