2013 New Year's Resolutions

Hello my Friends!

Oh I have missed you!  I really truly did not mean to stay away this long.  I knew that I had a lot of travel days and I didn't think that I would be able to post every day, but I was hoping to post a little over Christmas.  Oh well, I spent my time snuggling with the baby so it was worth it :0)

So needless to say, I have a billion things that I want to talk to you about, but it's New Year's Eve and I think I want to talk about Resolutions.  Have you made yours?  More importantly, do you usually keep yours?  Let's review mine from last year:

1-I am going to find my way into that elusive Size 6. - Yep, I got em and I wear em :-)

2-I was going to say full marathon, but I've been thinking a lot lately and I really Really REALLY want to do the Susan G. Komen 3-Day - Dang, I didn't get to do this, but I did knock out a couple more half marathons and a butt load of 5ks for charity

3-I am going to start keeping a workout journal.  I am hoping this will help with my abs/weights workouts. - Yep, keep a notebook in my gym bag and keep track of my weights and workouts.

4-I am going to try a new workout. - I started the year with belly dancing. Then I did some yoga. And then boot camp. YEAH! 

5-I am going to get into that bikini by June. - Yep, I did it!

Honestly, last year was the first year that I stuck to mine. Maybe it was because I put it out on the blog or maybe it's because I'm finally taking it seriously that I needed to change my life.

It is New Year's Eve and I did not go to McDonalds, Burger King, or Wendy's once this year. There were many temptations to do it, but I resisted.  So proud. And thank goodness for Subway.

Now it's time to make 5 new ones.

1. I will get my Personal Trainer Certification!  YES I WILL

2. I am going to incorporate yoga into my weekly schedule. I throw it in every now and then, and I've talked about adding it regularly, but I have yet to do so.  The good news is that I just found a groupon for 10 sessions. YEAH!

3. I am going to focus on making a new healthy recipe every other week. I need to switch it up and introduce new things into my diet. I was actually thinking of going Vegetarian for a couple of weeks and seeing how that works out for me. But, don't hold me to that last part. I like my chicken too much.

4. I'm going to put it out there. I want that full marathon this year!

5. I am going to lose the damn belly!

And for a little fun

6. I am going to get Tony Stewart to call me. I have been thinking of going viral with a "Call Me Maybe" video for him. Haha....sigh I heart him.

Okay kids, I promise to write all about my Christmas travel adventures, but I need to do a  few things before heading out tonight.  I promise to write more tomorrow.

I wish you a Happy And Healthy New Year my friends.

Have a Blessed Night my friends.
