I finally came up with some New Year's Resolutions. At first, when I thought about it, I thought it might be silly because generally people don't keep resolutions but then I realized that I lost 85 pounds last year so I guess that means I DO keep resolutions. ;) I decided to pick a few things that were attainable that I knew I could achieve. I should be making a resolution to be more organized and to fold and put away my laundry as soon as it's finished (my Sister is laughing her ass off right now, aren't you Cathy?) but I knew that would never happen, so why bother even trying?
So here they are...
#1 - Try a new recipe at least two times a month and blog about it. I'd really like to build my "HungryMomma/HealthyMomma" blog but I haven't had the opportunity to do much with it. I'll post these new recipes on my healthy blog with a link from THIS blog so that will be a way to start building it. An added mini-resolution is to really work on building that blog but this is a measurable way to start.
#2 - Train for and Complete the "Broad Street Run" The Broad Street run is the biggest ten-mile race in the country. It starts at Philadelphia's Central High School and continues all the way down Broad Street (duh.) to the Philadelphia Naval Yard. I've heard it's a fairly easy ten miles and that most of it is ever so slightly down hill. I can run six miles now (with effort) but because the race isn't until early May, I have plenty of time to train. I am going to train with a half marathon program because that is on my agenda this year too and I figure if I can run 13.1 miles, 10 will be easy! I'm starting this next week and I'll update more on the program I've found at that time.
#3 - Continue with my Healthy Lifestyle and lose (at least) the last 20 pounds that I have left. This is sort of a silly one for a resolution because it is a part of my life now but I need to mention it if only to refocus myself and to know that it WILL happen this year.
That's about it for my "resolutions." I will try to be a bit more organized this year as well....
or not. (hee hee.)
Happy belated new year everyone, enjoy your Wednesday!
