cuppa comfort, with a side of support
We're not in this World alone, so why try to struggle through it all alone, eh?

Pull up a chair, a nice cuppa, some (calorie-free) biscuits and have a word. Be it fitness management or relationship woes, sharing the load eases the burden. Together, we'll solve all our problems and be home in time for a candlelit soak and a good read.

ok. second day now. a wussy 10 minutes on the bike. but better than naught.

i'm thinking (hoping?) i can start with one goal and try to add to it throughout the year.

first one- 10 minutes on the bike each day. no set speed or distance. just ten minutes. i'm going to try to keep that up for two weeks. perhaps then i will set a minimum speed or distance. but trying to keep the pressure low so the odds of succeeding are better.

i'd love to establish some reward for myself. *g* but i'm not sure G would like be appearing in his bed ;) was thinking last night i could maybe talk him into going out for sushi at some point. so that's a sort of related goal i guess :)

hoping that i can accomplish six goals by the end of the year. but we'll see

*hugs* to all

Personally, I no longer bother with resolutions any more, since I tend to drop them like a bad habit after a week or so.

That being said, this year is different.

My roommates (that is code for 'parents') and I have decided to embark on a house-wide health-conscious plan for diet and exercise. We are calling it a plan instead of a resolution so we can focus on beginning anew, rather than simply resolving past behaviour. We each have our own goals within the broader health-conscious plan - mine is to lose about 20 lbs of fat and tone up, so there will be lots of gym time in there for me - but the ultimate goal is to increase our overall health. Doing it as a family will ensure that all meals are healthy, there is limited to no junk food in the house, and there will always be someone to bust your chops if you should show signs of weakness.

We did this same type of thing as a family exactly ten years ago and it worked out great for everyone. If only we had maintained it...

The plan is to be set into effect on Monday - start the week out right, you know? Tomorrow and Sunday are going to be 'preparation' days to give us time to rid the fridge and cupboard of the lingering crap and start filling it with the good-for-you stuff like fruit, veggies, lite popcorn, etc.

There are many things I want and plan to do once I am in that happy, healthy state - hike another portion of the Appalachian Trail, run in a 5k, complete a 30-mile benefit bike ride, learn to surf, be able to wear a bikini without scaring small children and dogs... the list goes on.

Now that you know what my deal is, tell me about your plans / resolutions for the new year?

Welcome Fiends, Friends, and Assorted Crüe...

It's a New Year, and I hope a 'new' me, finding some sort of rising out of the ashes of 2009 for a plumage of rich hues and health and wisdom.  Personally, I do believe it will be a more fruitful year, as I've friends on which to lean, and this community in which to thrive, to reach my goals of better health and well-being.

I'm ready for a fresh start starting here and now.  Join me?
