Okay..I really am not that much into New Year's resolutions despite what it may seem like. I just happened to make a conscious decision to change to reusable shopping bags thanks to a friend telling me about Envirosax just prior to Christmas. As a result, I checked out their website and they were nice enough to sponsor a review and giveaway on my blog. It's something I've been meaning to do for a while and it's only a matter of getting into the habit as many of you mommies have let me know! Unlike other New Year's resolutions, I am not going to beat myself over forgetting to do it once in a while. Life happens and no one is perfect. Often, the most successful people are the ones that accept their mistakes, learn from them and adjust appropriately.
While I am not so much into resolutions, I am all about setting goals. I have lots of goals for the year. Most notably, I hope to finish at least two more Master's classes. I am starting another next Tuesday so that's a start. Another goal I have is to keep up with my running. I've kind of taken a break which isn't a bad thing but I need to get back on the treadmill. I find it much easier to stay focused when I have a fitness goal in mind that isn't related to the scale. Therefore, my immediate goal will be to run a half marathon in April. It's a race that I've done a couple time before and it's a great way to start off the year. I am going to mostly train on the treadmill and do my longer runs outside on Sundays (weather permitting).
Step 1 is to register for the half marathon. I am too cheap to sign up for something and not participate. I am also too competitive to NOT train. My hubby also gave me a Forerunner AND Nike + so there are no excuses not to run. I've got extra running toys that need to be played with!
Step 2 is to get back on the treadmill even if it's just 3 miles to start with. I've been sick for a couple weeks but feel better today so 3 miles at a slower pace should be attainable.
