New Year Resolutions

Like many people do when a new year starts I tend to look back at the year that is ending and evaluate how it went but then look forward to the new year and see what I could do better or what needs to change.

From the time I joined Orangetheory in March of last year until I broke my foot in October I was very consistent in hitting the gym multiple times a week. During the week I go to a gym class that starts at 6:10 AM so I am very happy the I found something that can get me up at a very early hour of the day. I couldn't go to the gym for over two months due to my foot but I got the all clear from the doctor to carefully (with a couple of restrictions/modifications) go back to the gym. I plan to keep up my gym routine this year and hope to continue to get stronger and faster.

Lots of people make a resolution to lose weight and while I am currently trying to lose a bit of weight my overall goal for the year is just to focus on eating more healthy foods.  Losing weight may not be a reasonable thing for me this year as I am hoping to be pregnant at some point this year. Pregnancy and losing weight don't really go together but eating better foods and pregnancy definitely go together.

The other thing that I want to do more of this year is reading.  I love to read but too often end up on my computer or watching TV instead of reading when I am at home. I am going on a trip later this week so that plane ride should be a great time to get into a good book.  Once I get into a book I am better about making time to read since I want to know what happens next.

This something I have actually done pretty well the last few years but I always want to make time to go on at least a few little trips this year. I don't have any big international trips planned this year but I do have a quick trip to Disney World planned later this week along with a birthday present trip to Heart Castle with my husband.

  1. Stopping by from the link-up, I can totally relate to the broken foot problems. I tore all the ligaments in my ankle in 2015 and it was a loooong recovery. I also love to read and need to work on doing it more consistently. Happy New Year!
