Happy New Year! Well 2009 is a wrap! A wrap I say! I had a great 2009 fitness wise. I set out last fall to lose weight and get in shape. I am not looking to be a size 2 or anything but I wanted to lose weight and get to a healthier size. Last January I was wearing a size 26/28 or 3XL last night I wore a (stretchy) size 14! Good stuff!
For as long as I can remember, every January I make a resolution to lose weight and exercise more. I tend to be a Type A personality and I think that is what led to my downfall in the past trying to do too much without leaving room for the depth of this battle. Last year I really began in December trying to just get my mind right and in January I began making small steps and going back to the gym , in August I got a personal trainer and rejoined Weight Watchers. I didn't jump in 110% in January. To get from Resolutions to Results for me meant pacing myself. I am not where I want to be but I am not where I was so that's a victory.
Well 2010 has a lot going on goal wise (1) Lose the last 30 pounds (2) do the Iron Girl (3) Get certified as a spinning teacher or for a Les Mills program
Looking forward to 2010's journey!!! 2009 ended on a good note I was blessed to visit The Bahamas and had a great time. I was able to visit Yoga Retreat and the whole vibe of that island was just surreal and calm. I'll plan a trip back soon.
Headed to the personal trainer. I managed to lose weight even with a sketchy workout schedule nothing much just 3 pounds or so but that's great. I am going to buckle down the next few weeks I am giving myself 2 months to lose the 30 pounds. If it takes 3 or 4 I won't be mad but my goal is to see this goal through as close to the 1 year mark as possible!
