Keeping Fit, and Having Fun?


Another New Year, another set of resolutions.

I’ve heard it only takes 21 days to form a habit, but in the past, I can’t say I’ve ever made it that far.  Well this year, is the year I’m going to change it.  It’s now mid February, and I’ve slowly (but steadily), been losing some of the extra weight I’ve gained over the last 10 years or so.  In 6 weeks, I’ve lost 11 pounds.  It may not sound like a lot, but I’ll be honest- I’m SUPER lazy.  Just ask my husband (Sorry Matt!).

For me to have stuck to this resolution (and to see results) is earth shattering.  I’ve re-joined the gym (and have actually been going), stopped drinking my FAVOURITE sugary coffee drinks (for the most part), and have been attempting to eat healthier.  Doesn’t sound like much does it?  Well, you’re right!  Just cutting out my morning Ice Cappuccinos have for real, made a huge difference.  Yes, I am also watching my calorie count, BUT cutting out Ice Capps accounted for like a quarter of my “recommended” calories per day.  Yikes!  When they say “don’t drink your calories”, it’s for a reason.  I would so much rather have food, than a drink.  Chai Tea has now become my daily go-to.  Mmmmmmmm!

I figured by posting this on my blog, it would hold me more accountable and blogging about my ‘getting healthy’ journey could also be something that I “try” on here.  It might also motivate me to get blogging more often too.  I’ve realized recently how much I have actually missed it!

So here’s hoping that these will be 2 resolutions I’ll actually continue to follow through on. 🙂
