Getting past the winter setback….an update and goals for the New year

Standard

Well, to be honest with you I’ve majorly slacked off last month.  First, the cooler weather discouraged me, even after bringing everything indoors, buying the exercise dvd’s etc…and then the holidays hit and Lord help! lol….and when I’m at someone else’s house for a vacation-I really loose interest .

But I am in no case discouraged.  We have a new year, and in a few short months (3) I will have been exercising for a year!  So my goal is to finish out the year with NO MORE setbacks.  Time to jump back in and get to work!  So it has been raining all morning but tonight at seven I will do exercise bike, maybe tapes, push ups, squats, arm bands.  Yes!  I WILL do this tonight at 7:00pm.   The days it is not cold and raining I will do my 2 mile walk and finish up with stretching and yoga , my favorite cool down.

Despite not exercising last night, I had a really good blood sugar this morning. It was only 120.  So I’m pleased about that.  But generally when I don’t exercise at night I have a sorry blood sugar in the morning.  So a little exercise goes a long way.

This year I’m also going to challenge myself.  Maybe walk longer or ride my bike for 20 min. longer during an inside work out.  I would consider myself healthier since I decided to start exercising last April-so don’t be discouraged if it seems like your not making progress.  Even loosing 5 pounds *is* progress.

Setting new goals is a good idea.  My goals are to loose 20 more pounds and exercise in some way every day, some times twice a day.  Also, cut back on my calories.  With my craft business my goal is to start taking my art to shows and events (hello Bonham trade days, the fairgrounds, etc…).  With my home I want to get another shed built outside that we will turn into an art studio,  and get kitchen cabinets built and bookshelves. (I’ll provide the money and husband and I will do the work.) What are some of your goals?
