Well, as you all know I have not been doing so well with my exercise and dieting. But that's no surprise! :) But I've decided to take charge and make a change, starting today. I'm calling it my Mid-Years Resolution!!
Here's the way I see it.... New Years Resolutions never last. Here's why:
1.) It's January, which means where I live it's cold! So, you're stuck inside.
2.) Since it's cold I can wear baggy clothes to cover up those extra pounds! No biggie!
3.) Since it's cold I stay inside! I hate the cold!
4.) It's January 1st and I still have all those yummy Christmas cookies and left overs from all the get togethers that HAS to be eaten!
5.) If you're like me, you get food, mostly chocolate, for gifts. And you can't let gifts go to waste!
6.) A year is such a long time to achieve a goal, you don't REALLY need to start right away.
7.) It's much easier to sleep in during the winter months!
8.) During this season you're in the mood to give... and dieting/ exercise is not very 'giving' if you ask me!
So, you see... the list could go on and on.... but what it comes down to is this:
It is NOT YOUR FAULT that you didn't keep that New Year's Resolution.... it's Mother Nature's Fault! :) (I know, some people would disagree with me, but just humor me now!)
So here's my Mid-Years Resolution that I hope I can keep:
Drop these extra 35 pounds of baby weight I picked up with this last pregnancy. (This will take me from my current 180 down to 145.) My goal is to be there by Christmas. I think it's doable, but I'll really have to work at it
My plan? I'm going to re-start my 30 day challenge on my EA Sports Active (since I only got through 3 workouts before throwing in the towel last month). I'm also going to start walking. My goal will be to start with 1 or 2 days a week and work up to 5-7 days a week. (I know me, I have to start small!) I'm also against diets of every kind, so I'm not dieting per se. I will, however, be watching what I'm eating. This will be the hardest for me to achieve!
We'll see! Wish me luck! Or better yet, come join me and make your own Mid-Year's Resolution!!!
