I know it’s cliché to say my goal for the new year is to lose weight. In all honesty, I hope that’s the case, but my actual goal is to be pain free. Healthy. Have more energy. Be a good example for my girls. Prove to myself (and all the naysayers) that I can do it.
The plan is to have at least 30 minutes of exercise a day and eat healthier. Cut out the white stuff. Eat more lean meats and more veggies. No fast food for 2014 and be more cautious of what I’m feeding my body. Stop eating earlier. No snacking after dinner (that’s the hard one for me!!)
30 minutes is a good place to start. For me. I have arthritis in my hip and ankle after a bad injury a few years ago. I broke my ankle in 4 places and broke my leg. I wore a boot cast for 6 months. I have 6 screws in my ankle. So, I have to be a little careful to not over so it at the start.
So far so good. I’ve been walking on our treadmill, walking a 2 mile loop in our town and have been dancing to Just Dance 4. You probably won’t ever find me in a gym. Ha. I hate gyms. I’d much rather be outside!!
Here are some pictures from the last week or so. Oh, New Year’s Eve I spent home. Alone. With Chinese food and the food channel. I have learned that at times it’s imperative for me to have some quiet time. My honey took our 4 kiddos to the family game & snack night without me. They had a blast, and I had some much needed peace and quiet.
