But first, I’d like to take a look back at last year’s resolutions to see how I fared … though I already know the outcome.
– Continue exercising, doing at least something daily.
– Eat at least once piece of fresh fruit a day.
– Eat more vegetables.
– Try to go vegetarian as often as I can.
– Go back to Planet Fitness.
– Cook more, and at least one recipe from each issue of Bon Appetit.
– Blog more.
I’d like to carry some of these over into 2013, but first and foremost, I really want 2013 to be the year I lose some major weight. I’m talking 30 pounds, at least.
I still have that HIIT boxing class that I haven’t taken yet because of the whole Bone Spur Situation, but I plan to do it come January. There’s been a lot of cool-looking classes on Living Social, but the fella made me promise to take the HITT class first, and I really need to, but I am pretty nervous.
As for the daily exercise, that’s really easy since we walk so much, and it’s gotten easier on my foot (and better overall) since I wear my trusty Sauconys everywhere now. Plus, I’m looking forward to breaking in my brand-new hot pink and yellow Reebok Real Flex Transitions that I got for Christmas!
I need to get back into the fruits and veggies thing, that’s really fallen to the wayside, and I’m definitely feeling the effects.
I also want to try get back to being vegetarian as often as possible. I know it really made a difference in my body and mindset, and I really want to get back to it – which should be a lot easier since one of my Christmas presents from the fella was a 2.5 hour vegetarian-cooking class! I’m so excited about it, and I can’t wait to learn as much as I can and bring it on home!
As a party bonus, the class will also help fulfill my “Cook more” resolution!
I really hope when I write this annual post a year from now, I’ll be more proud of how far I’ve come health-wise, because 2012 – while a great year as a whole – it was pretty much a wash on the health front.
But that’s why resolutions are so great, they’re a chance to redeem yourself, dust yourself off, and get back at it.
I hope you had a fantastic 2012 – and here’s to an even better 2013!
