Whew! Survived it! How did you do? It was a kind of quiet finish to the end of 2012. Bear wasn't feeling well after our big PU/Friend outing, so she and I both went to Med Express early Sunday to see what was up. I wasn't feeling so hot either, but my many years of experience told me I was working on a sinus infection. Bear tested + for strep. Next stop CVS for meds! We are doing much better now :-)
Despite all that, I was able to walk on the treadmill 5/7 days and am pretty proud of myself. I only lost one pound, but I'll take that over the usual weight gain associated with the last SIX weeks of best eating events in the whole year! Now only nine more to go to get back to where I started before the holiday eating began back in mid November with Bear's birthday.
Here is a screen shot of my activity from my FitBit page:
Anyone out there game to share New Year's Resolutions? I'm finding that sharing makes me feel more accountable for my actions. As you might know, I live out in the middle of nowhere, but two other neighbors, that means we live on the same road within less that two miles from each other, are also getting the walking bug. I text them both after my walk, and we motivate each other!
I'm also faithfully posting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram a picture of my treadmill read out. Want to follow me on these pages? My Twitter handle is IBCFarmgirl, I'm lanawallpe on Instagram, and Lana Lyons Wallpe on Facebook. Walking the Off-Beaten Path also has a Facebook page, but I am not 100% diligent about putting everything over to that page. I'm going to start trying though!
OK, now for the Resolutions part. Here are my TOP THREE GOALS FOR 2013:
1. Become more fit, that includes exercise, eating better, and just plain moving!
2. De-clutter this house! I have a BIG developing news story that should help motivate me on this goal, but I will wait a bit before sharing. Don't want to jinx anything not yet SET IN STONE (hint!)
3. Balance my time/life better so that chaos is NOT a common state of living conditions around here.
Want to share? Want to check in with me to be more accountable? Want me to check in with you to be more accountable? It's all about communication, which could be a FOURTH GOAL.... but I will also wait to share more about this idea in a few weeks.
Now to get back to my decluttering and balance goals, which means I need to start digging through piles, pay bills, update minutes for Farm Bureau, and get vacations booked for this year. Oh yeah, and fix lunch
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
