I have big plans for 2013, too many to count. Yesterday I mentioned a few but there’s so many more, little, big, personal, public, symbolic, and a few are just to make a point. I am making a list, writing them all down. This year I want to get things done. I want to see some progress, the house, the yard, me, my writing, whatever it is, it’s going to be better this year.
This week I am working on my plan of attack and then next week it’s on.
In addition to planning I am working on a few things for me…
At the end of 2012, I had slowly started making some changes, more water, less Dr Pepper. I was feeling like it was ok to take time for me; a morning routine and a night routine. I started thinking about food choices: more vegetables, less processed foods. It’s been working, I’ve lost ten pounds between mid October and last Friday. I actually lost three pounds Christmas week. How crazy is that? Losing weight in the middle of all the amazing Christmas food and cookies.
So this week I am…
– Drinking 48 + ounces of water every day
– Drinking 12 ounces or less of Dr Pepper a day.
– Strength exercises (abs/legs – Mon/Wed/Fri, arms/back – Tues/Thurs/Sat)- Walking briskly (10 minutes this week, increasing a little each week)
– Stretching (everyday with a longer stretch on Sundays)
So far, I am on schedule, I’ve had my water, took my walks, and done my strength exercises.
