Happy 2013!!! My lucky number is 13 so I am having high hopes for this year. This past year has been nothing but a whirl wind! I got married, bought a Jetta, Jetta got flooded in Hurricane Sandy :-(, bought a Mini Cooper…and well nothing better happen to that car! It’s my favorite car, I’ve been dying to get one!! My husband and I had some ups and downs with our jobs and that has really taken a toll on us. So aside from my sappy story of my year of craziness, I’m looking at this year as a fresh new start. I’m not one to make any resolutions because I feel like there is so much pressure on everyone with their resolution that they have a hard time sticking with them. So, I’m looking into this year as a way to grow and become the person I want to be.
Anyway, I am a huge huge huge creature of habit I am the one that eats the same thing for breakfast everyday and I’m happy with that. I can eat the same thing for dinner everyday and be happy with that. So I’ve come to the conclusion that I am way too structured and need to stem away from the “norm” of my everyday life. So this morning, even though I am so sick and I don’t want to even eat anything (I know I have to eat, it is what fuels my body and what will help me get better), I changed up the routine. Now this might not be a huge change for some people but instead of my slice of Ezekiel toast with PB2 spread on it and an apple cut up I tried some Fage 2% plain yogurt with 1/4 cup of granola and some yummy fruit cut up in it. This breakfast was sooo good! Why have I been stuck in my food rut? Why do I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday? What am I afraid of?
So here it is the goal I am setting for myself…stem away from the usual food picks and try something new!
Along another line, for my #Elf4Health challenge today I have to set a new fitness goal. I signed up for a 1/2 marathon in May so my new fitness goal is to stop making “it’s too cold out” excuses and start training. I’ve never been a great runner so I don’t know what my times should be but I am going to do the best I can and succeed at my goals.
What are your new years goals?
