Update on My New Year's Resolutions:
- Read a book every month- I did this last year and really enjoyed it.
So far I read, Cross Fire by James Patterson in January and Febuary's book was Drop Shot by Harlan Coben. Both were excellent books! I just started Bait by Karen Robard for March.
- Run a half marathon-This is big for me because I've been running for years and have never been in a marathon. Just Fun Runs. lol
This is going to take a lot of work. I aim to do the Tulsa Run's half marathon in October. So, far I have done one 5k and am signed up to run one more on March 26. Then, I'll aim to do a 10k and move up from there... I'm just proud I've officially ran my 5k.
- Learn to Stay in Shape- I worded it this way because I've lost 10lbs and still have another 10lbs to go, but this isn't about that... This is about learning healthy habits and making it a lifestyle not a short lived diet.
I'm awful at this. I so badly want to feel comfortable in my own skin again, but with working 2 jobs and one being a coffee shop with thousands of unhealthy creation to get my chubby little fingers around, it's hard... I gave up all sweets for Lent. It started yesterday and ends Palm Sunday. I know I'm giving them up more for myself than anything. Can you blame me? I grew up Baptist and Lent doesn't have as strong effect on my spiritual walk as it has on many others... Also, Saturday is 11 weeks from my wedding. If I got serious and worked really hard at losing a lb. per week I would be at my goal weight.
How are you doing with your New Year's Resolutions?
