New year, new habits.
I've rejoined the gym and been often enough in the past 2 months for it to be a habit.
This will be a year of adventures. Finalize the divorce. Get a new job. Audition for a community theater production. Grow my music hobby. Maybe even go on a date.
I will take care of my kids, but I need to take care of me, too.
Wow, time flies.
Last semester of grad school, and an internship, and finalizing the divorce. It's really time for me to take care of myself.
I am trying running again. 5K scheduled at the end of April.
Also have a college reunion coming up, and it would be great to look great.
And of course, the all important job interviews. I need to look young, energetic, go getting!
So here we go- ME TIME!
Survived my first semester of grad school/single parenting/working with a 3.75 GPA (yay!) and a 12-pound weight gain (not yay). Now to do more moving, less stress eating in front of the computer.
The past few months I've been sticking to it. School starts for me in a month and I'm having a mini freakout at keeping my work, parenting and academic life balanced as well as having me time. My new fun goal is to plan a trip to Cape Breton and PEI. I want to visit Green Gables and go to a fiddle festival. But first, get in shape for lots of hiking, and get my degree, and get a real job!
After a traumatic 2011 I'm going to get my life in order. The pounds have crept on and I can see the writing on the wall. This is not how I want to live, and I am going to follow through and reach my fitness and health goals. One day, one step at a time. I WILL do this.
Run in a 5K and break 30 minutes by the end of the year.
30 minutes moving EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Include fruit or vegetable in every meal, and track (honestly) what I'm eating.
Stretch thoroughly, daily, and explore more yoga.
Shrink treats to small and once a day.
