It's Almost A New Year
Wednesday, December 31, 2008
Well, it is almost here. It will prove to be a significant year for me. We will be purchasing our first home together. We will be moving to a new town. Our children will be attending a new school, and I will be into my second year on this journey.
My first year's mark was actually in October, but it being the new year and all, it feels like a renewing kinda thing. Sorta like an anniversary. Moving to our new house promises to be a good move for my new lifestyle. Lots of places for me to walk to and I even am planning on getting a bicycle. It is in a nice area for riding too. The schools are nearby and that is the track that I used to walk in the fall, it will be a familiar place to me. 2009 looks to be promising.
I am ready to begin the New Year challenges with my team-mates. One begins right away, on Thursday. The other begins on Saturday. Two teams means, double the accountability, and double the support!
My only issue will be my upcoming surgery on the 12th. I don't quite know how that will affect my weight loss. I don't know how long I will be unable to exercise and I know I won't be able to eat right.(tonsilectomy will do that to you!) And my nasal and throat surgery I know will keep me from exercising for a bit. I am hoping it will not be long, being successful at these challenges means a lot to me. I have been thinking about what the challenges should be. I think for a daily challenge I will get up by 10 am on weekdays. For a weekly challenge I will use my treadmill 3 times a week and my airdyne bike 2 times a week. And for the monthly challenge I will lose 61/2 pounds. There, it is down in black & white, that makes it official. Thoses are my goals for January 2009!!
