Resolutions for 2013: NO RESOLUTIONS

Thursday, January 03, 2013

This year I will be a "WORK IN PROGRESS".

I feel resolutions do me more harm than good. So this year, I plan to set goals - small and achievable and make committments to myself for myself.

I FINALLY made 2012 my year to achieve weight loss success. Past years were start/stop, try-try again. Last year, I found fun in working out and I reaped all the rewards of a slimmer body. It was a great year and I accomplished alot.

So this year, a few of my goals are the following:
> Continue to lose "fat".
I am a size 2-4 and weigh 126lbs and I can still pinch more than an inch. This continues to baffle me. By the end of the year, I make a commitment to myself that this will NOT be an issue.

> Continue to be a non-smoker.
I smoked just a few cigs a day throughout the year but even 1 is bad. I am 8 weeks strong at quitting.

> Never stop trying to eat better.
I am very bad in this area (which is probably why I can pinch more than an inch). My downfall is not bad eating it is just eating period. I know I need the fruits/vegs, etc and I have good intentions but then the produce and fruits at the grocery store are not the greatest and I buy, start off the week good then get waylaid 1/2 way through and it all goes to rot.

> Run 10 miles.
I currently can run a 5K with no problems. I am close to being able to run 5 miles straight. My goal by the end of the year is to run 10 miles. I don't enjoy running so this will be a challenge for me.

> Enjoy life - experience new things.
I did a lot of things last year that I hadn't done before. Also things that I hadn't done in a long time. I will never let this get away from me again.

These are just a few to start. The biggest thing is to never quit.... I need to get up every morning with the mindset that "I matter" and what path will I go down today for me!

    2012 was your year. You set goals and you accomplished them. Think of how many people fail to meet 1 goal, yet you met multiple (some very hard) goals! I know you can meet every goal you have set for '13. I, too, share the same philosophy that resolutions are not generally achieved, goals are so much better. Yes, you do matter, and you are right in your plan to do this for you.
