Oh, it's New Year's Day again! And we all have fitness and diet goals, don't we? Yes, we do.
I had a wonderful birthday, and if you want, you can read all about it here. Yes, we ate way too many sweets and about 1/2 of a huge cake is still in the kitchen. Today I freeze it and get it out of my line of sight.
I of course want to lose weight in 08. I didn't do so well in that aspect in the last year, although I have been exercising more and thought I was doing well. It must be the eating that is throwing me off.
But all things must be done in moderation. I need to learn how to be more moderate in my eating, without having to count and write down every single point or calorie. Because that works for a while, but then you stop writing it down or stop going to WW meetings and then revert to the previous eating habits. The ones that got me here.
I like the idea of an exercise streak, where you see how may consecutive days you can exercise. The Amazing Shrinking Mom exercised every day for one whole year! I'm not going to make that kind of goal, but I could do 4 -5 days a week of exercise.
A friend and I have given up sugar for extended amounts of time, which is a good thing. We talked about having to pay each other one dollar for each time we eat sweets. But then wouldn't we just be paying each other the same dollar all the time?
So, I can't write down my resolutions just yet. I haven't worked out a plan of action that I can commit to yet.
I do know that I want to:
a-be more patient with myself, my husband and my kids
b-lose at least 20 pounds
c-cook healthier for myself and for my family
Those are good goals, don't you think?
