Happy New Year everyone!
How did you spend your NYE? Chris and I went out to dinner with my mom (my dad had to work!) and then we went over to his parents’ house to bring in 2013. I was so tired, so we ended up heading home around 12:30AM and went straight to bed.
I woke up this morning to the sound of my alarm; it was time to get out and run the four miles I had planned. To my surprise, Chris asked if he could tag along.
First run with my new Garmin!
So let’s recap… it takes me about a month+ to be able to run four (slow) miles and Chris just wakes up one day and says, “I think I’ll run four miles today.” Seems fair! It was fun to have the company!
I always try to make a few resolutions at the start of a new year. I know some people find resolutions to be silly – and maybe sort of pointless? – but I always appreciate a “fresh start.”
While these aren’t my only goals for the new year, I did want to share the fitness and health goals I hope to achieve in 2013.
#1 – Finish the Disney Princess Half Marathon.
This will get crossed off my list early on in 2013. The farthest I’ve run so far is about 6.5 miles. I really need to focus and work hard to be prepared for February 24th!
#2 – Take my vitamins regularly.
I wrote a post about taking vitamins back in July, but have since become remiss at actually taking them. I want to make a conscious effort to take my probiotic, B12 vitamin, and Viactiv chew daily; I just need to force myself to make a habit of it!
#3 – Cut back on sugar.
I’m sure it’s obvious from the name of my blog, but I love sweets! Perhaps I’m being more mindful of my sugar intake because I’ve been eating way more sweets than usual – thank you Christmas cookies – but this is something I need to work on. Just to be clear – sugar and desserts are not being eliminated from my life (I definitely plan on having dessert today!). I just want to lessen the amount I’m eating overall; this should be pretty doable.
I’ll try and remember to check in with these goals throughout the year!
Did you make any fitness and health goals/resolutions for 2013?
