What is Your New Years Resolution?

So…what is your New Years Resolution?  I have the same one every year, to get back to working out and slim down. Sad to say that it is a recurring theme and I should have learned by now to get to it.. especially at my age!  This year I am 100% better off than I was last year because I lost 10 pounds leading up to Christmas.  I think, well, to be honest, I know, I have gained several back from enjoying the Holidays and vacation with my family, but I continued to watch what I ate, drank and moved my body as much as possible.  I stayed on my new health lifestyle regime as much as possible and will get back on my second 30 day regime on Monday, January 9th.  I am actually looking forward to it because I like a routine and the first round was so much easier than I could ever imagine and I have never felt better! (Anyone looking to join me, send me a note and we can hold each other accountable and support each other!)

I am now ready to add the exercise component.  I spoke about doing the Sweat App last Summer in this post and am going to start back to Week One on Monday.  I may be taking on too much at once, but I am going to do my best to go a day at a time and not over think it. I can come up with a million and one excuses NOT to exercise, so if I can motivate everyday to do something that will be a huge accomplishment.  I figure a few new pieces of workout gear and clothes wouldn’t hurt to make me feel good and am eyeing these leggings (all black until I meet my goal and can rock a pattern), this tank and this vest for layering.  Feel free to share in the comments below your resolutions and we canhelp each other stay on track!  Good Luck and Here’s to a great 2017!

    I’m in. Im ready to start an exercise program. I think January 9th is a perfect day to start. It gives me a couple of days to get a focus and a plan.. Let’s do this!

    • Great! I am worried I will let the exercise slip with the short , cold days so I am excited to have a buddy! I am on a weight loss regime and it has been amazing – so I am happy that part is set and working for me. I email you to connect 🙂 We can do this! xxRidgely

        we just have to make a plan for those cold snowy days. I was thinking of a stretch or yoga dvd. My concern is getting cardio. I’ll keep thinking about a workout for those dark cold icy days.. This is very exciting!!
