What a Year It's Been... and Fitness Resolution

This time last year I was: engaged, nervous/excited for student teaching, living with my college roommate, trying to get wedding plans around, enjoying a month long Christmas break. Fast forward a year  and I am now: married, half way through my first year of teaching, enjoying break (I only wish it was a month long.) Safe to say...what a year it has been. I am extremely blessed!

That's enough for looking back... it's time again to look forward! Today I'm linking up with Mrs. Wills Kindergarten for the final resolution installment: fitness.

Whew. I'd love to say that I am an exercise fanatic {I'm not.} I'd love to say that I eat as well as I should {I don'.} I'd love to say that I'm satisfied with my physical condition {ya, that's a no too.}

So here we go... hold me accountable people, this is the one resolution area that I probably will have the most trouble with. {If God only made leafy greens taste like chocolate, this wouldn't be so hard!}

  1. Eat more meals at home. This is a baby step. I want to eat healthier, but cutting down the trips downtown to eat is the place to start. Working and graduate classes just zap my desire to stay on my feet and put in the time for a home cooked meal. 
  2. Get back into shape... I haven't gained a whole lot since the wedding, but I haven't helped myself either. Last year I was going to attempt Julianne Michael's 30 Day shred, it lasted the first few days of the new year until student teaching started, then I stopped. This year, I will make it through 30 days and then some! I want to feel good in a swimming suit this summer, that hasn't happened since high school.
  3. Drink more water and less pop. I'm good during the day to drink water, but once I'm home that goes out the window. 
So there we go... a look back at a wonderful year, planning, reflecting and preparations for the upcoming year. What a fun linky party to participate in. Here is to 2013 and accomplishing most if not all of your goals!
