I can't believe it's here already! Christmas is over, a new year has begun and this is my year to rock!!
I have decided that Monday is my absolute start date. Joey goes back to work and it will be so much easier to get into a routine then. I am planning on setting short term and long term goals so that I am not putting too much pressure on myself.
I made a calendar today for January so that I can track my activity with stars. Usually this keeps me motivated because I love making stuff and working with stickers...lol I should have been a teacher. I am also going to type and print my goals for January so that I can post them somewhere and look at them often.
I am really excited to say that we are getting a treadmill on wednesday!!!!! Thanks to a loan from my grandparents, we can now exercise at home, which means a lot to me because the gym is out of the question financially, and it's too cold most days to take the baby out for walks now. I just have to make time to do this either while Arianna naps, or when she goes to bed for the night. It will definately be more challenging now but I can handle it!!
The only thing that concerns me food wise is lunches. I need to come up with some quick, filling ideas that I will enjoy. I am working on it.
My goals for January so far are:
-Exercise at least 30 mins, at least 4 times/week (hopefully more, but my schedule depends on mommy duties)
-Be Op every day (I can have treats but I must record them)
-Use spark people every day (This is free and I can't afford ww now)
-Track and record workouts
-Blog regularly, and try to figure out how to post pictures on the blog
-Take measurements and before pics (I can't weigh myself right now because I am ashamed to admit that my scale does not go up high enough right now. I would also like before pics so that I can see my progress as I go along)
I was going to reflect on 2008, but I want this post to be about looking forward, so here's to 2009 and all of the success and possibilities it holds!!!
