Here we are--now more than a full week into the New Year and it appears the resolution motivation has taken over the world! Or, at least the world inside this little bubble of my life. :) Totally loving all of the excitement, challenges, happy faces, sweaty faces, healthy eats and workout plans that have taken over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
I purposely haven’t set any written goals. My return to the gym was a gift to myself--not a resolution. No unnecessary pressure for this gal. I have motivation and enjoyment in my corner, and that is everything I need right now. All I need is to push myself just a wee bit harder every time I step in the gym door, and as long as I see even the teensiest of results each time I will be a happy camper. Fitting the gym into my hectic schedule has been tough but it’s doable and making it happen is a priority to me. And when I meet my priorities it’s easier to keep on going.
The one goal I did set is a weight loss goal for January because we are going on vacation in February and I will be a whole lot more comfortable in last Summer’s shorts if I lose a few pounds. I’ll even treat myself to a new bathing suit if I can reach my goal. You know, because bathing suit shopping is soooo much fun. *grumble Bahaha!
Happy thoughts for this week:
- I’ve already lost more than a pound.
- I upped my weights for bicep curls and tricep kickbacks.
- I went from jogging 1 minute at a time, to 3 minutes at a time.
- My bum looks great doing deadlifts.
- We discovered a deeelish low-cal curry shrimp recipe.
What keeps you motivated? Did you set New Year’s resolutions?
