I’ve been doing my best to stay on track in the new year. I haven’t gone on any fad diet or extreme fitness regime. What I have been doing is making a focused effort to be more active, and stick to healthy nutrient rich foods that don’t add useless calories. So far so good.
The healthy eating is the easier part for me, because I like those foods anyway. Getting exercise when it is 5 degrees outside, and you don’t want to go to the gym is a little more challenging… but some days the miles creep up faster than you realize. I had errands to run in the morning, then met a friend to walk the mall. By the time he and I knocked off for lunch, I’d already tallied about 6 1/2 miles (you try and keep up with that jolly green giant). A few more errands and my usually 1/2 hour evening workout and I was well up over 9 miles. Of course I had to round it off, by doing a bit more to hit 10 miles. At that point I took the pedometer watch off. Enough is enough, and tomorrow is another day.
I have an elliptical being delivered Monday, so freezing my ta-tas off will soon be a non-issue
My next thing will probably be switching to a fitness tracker that syncs with my Windows 8 phone. This one works pretty well, but doesn’t do that, and I’ve realized it’s a feature I want. I’m thinking a Nike Fuelband or the new wrist Fitbit that is coming out this spring (I tend to “launder” my clip-on pedometers…oops).
How are you doing with your resolutions?
