New Year's Resolutions...
HAPPY NEW YEAR! (I know...a little late, but I've been sickly.)
With each new year, comes resolutions. Usually we all make them & then break them! So I haven't really stated any...or out loud anyway.
Every year, after the holidays, I start stressing about losing the holiday pounds, because we always go to Jamaica over Spring Break. So I worry about having to put on that bikini. This past Spring Break, we won 5 free nights while we were in Jamaica, so we used it during my Fall Break in October. I am proud to say that I've maintained that weight. And since I've been training for this half-marathon, I've actually been losing weight over Thanksgiving & Christmas...SHOCKER! I really like to eat! I'm not the healthiest eater...quite picky actually, but I do plan to get back on track of eating a little better. Especially to help my husband out...he's got a goal to lose at least 15-20 lbs by the end of March. I was so proud of him...he even go up this morning...in the cold...and ran a little over 2 miles! It's a start!
My plan is to try to make it to the gym at least 2-3 times a week for crossing training. Mainly I just go to work arms. Here lately, I've been doing good if I make it to the gym once a week...school obligations & sometimes just making excuses. I've got to do better.
I also plan to get back on track with my ab workouts. I was doing really good with the P90X ab routine...when I knew I had to put that bikini on for Jamaica. I may have to pull my stability ball back out & try some different moves.
For Christmas, my husband ordered the 10 Minute Solution Yoga DVD & the Pilates DVD that I used to do on Netflix when they had it on Instant Play, and then for some reason they removed them. Can't wait to start back with them! I felt so much better after doing them. They also helped with the stresses of teaching! Here's a link for the 10 Minute Solution Series (http://the10minutesolution.com/series/index.html). You can also find them broken up on http://www.youtube.com/ if you're interested.
So those are plans for right now. I guess you could say they're my short-term plans...from now until my after my half-marathon, since Spring Break won't be too far from the half.
