My plan over the next few days is to take the "Biggest Loser" pictures again.
This is one of my favorite activities when I go out to see my dad and step-mom. I really enjoy feeding chickens and interacting with these very yummy birds. These are not for eating though.
One year ago when I started working out with my trainer, 1 and 2 pound weights were next to impossible for me to lift. It's incredible how far I've come in such a short time. Today I was working with 10 pound weights! I don't know what it was about my workout today but there is a renewed sense of hope for me.
I want to be at least 20 pounds lighter in June when I do the Color Run for the 3rd time on June 1, 2013. I may be doing a 4th in September. It is fun, motivating and something I want to do any chance I get. I am disappointed that I didn't lose more weight but 20 pounds is a lot of weight. Don't believe me? Go to the grocery store and pick up 2 10lb bags of potatoes. There ya go! Imagine carrying that around!
I guess the biggest issue I have right now is that I have a lot of stress and work coming up. The question is, how will I handle all of this. How can I take what is set in front of me and become a healthier person.
How can I though? My job requires me to put my all into it every day. I feel as though I neglect my friends and family because of the obligations that work and grad school put on me.
I guess if I had to make one New Years Resolution it would be to make myself a priority in life. I've spent too much time making others a priority that it is my turn.
So to conclude... In 1 years time I've made impressive gains, not lost as much as I wanted but still lost weight and got healthier. 2013 is the year of being selfish!
Make one resolution this year...
Be your own #1 priority!
