New Year, New Outlook

spartacus-workoutOk, not really a new outlook but more of a more determined one. I’ve been unhappy with the direction I’ve been heading with my health and fitness choices for many months now and getting on the scale yesterday for the first time in a long while really  hammered home that I need to pull my head out of my backside and get to busy.

A few folks I know have tagged me to create some goals for the next 30 days and share them. So I’m doing that here. I’ll post updates throughout the month. And if you want to give it a shot, please do! If you’re connected with me on social media, tag me so I can cheer you on. If you’re not, either comment here or email me to let me know. If you want. No pressure.

    Arrgh. No alcohol. That would be my weakest link. Good luck with your challenge. My kids got me a Fitbit dor Christmas so I will try to join you in your quest for a healthier lifestyle.
    No alcohol. Hmmmmm. 🙂

    Nah, the no alcohol thing isn’t really that hard. I mean, there are definitely days when I wish for a large glass of wine – or three – but not drinking really helps me to stay away from nighttime snacking. And that’s a big problem for me.

    Good luck with your Fitbit! Everyone I know who has one loves it.

    Thanks! I’m hardly accomplishing any of the things on my list, though.

    And no matter how many nice things you say about me, I’m not going to take it easy on you with MtG… 😉

Comment if you want. You know, no pressure.
