2010 in Review and New Years Resolutions!

This year is going to be different, I am going to make resolutions and I am going to keep them. I am pretty sure I said that last year! But this year is going to be different it is 2011 and what better time to change than now. I said that when it was 2010

I wanted to make my resolutions early this year so I can get a jump start on it maybe.

Last Year if I remember correctly I made quite a few resolutions. The major ones were as followed:

Resolution #1: Lose weight: Isn't this on everyone's list? I didn't start working towards this goal until august but at least I did lose some weight. So I am thinking that I achieved this goal because I didn't say how much I wanted to lose and so far this year I have lost about 18lbs (total)

Resolution #2 : Get Fit: I think I am more fit than I was at the beginning of this year. Last year, even earlier this year I had pain in my ankles every time I walked. I tried buying comfortable shoes. I tried varying the pace at which I walked and I even tried ignoring the pain. I talked to my doctor about the pain, but he sucks he gave me the usual you need to lose some weight speech. ( Did I mention my doctor is a smoker? I roll my eyes whenever he tells me to lose weight, I always think whatever why don't you stop smoking?)  Finally I started working out in August. After a week I saw results, The swelling in my ankle went down and I feel so much better than I did before. I have absolutely no pain in my legs when I walk.  So I would say that even though I still have a long way to go I am on my way and that pleases me.

Resolution #3 : I will Stop eating junk food. Epic Fail. I think I ate a lot less junk food than I usually did but this is a work in progress.

Resolution # 4 Stop procrastinating. Yea I think I may have gotten worse.

Resolution #5: Save money. Does the fact that my bf saves money count?

This year I am going to make things easy on myself and I am going to keep these same resolutions only this time I will be more specific with how much weight I lose. I want to lose 30lbs by May and I want to lose my last 30lbs by December 2011. Therefore starting January I am going to start a new journey and I will try to lose 30lbs by May. 

In order to do this I will have to continue working on my eating, and I will have to exercise. Sounds simple right? Words are sometimes easier than actions. But I will get it done. 

The rest will remain the same, I am giving up on giving up on eating junk food. I think it is pointless at this time in my life. I will work on reducing the amount of junk food I eat though. 

Are any of you thinking about making New Years Resolutions? Did you keep the ones you made last year? Is there room for improvement or are you content?

Thanks for reading! 

Until Next time!

  1. I've never made a new years resolution before but I think I will definitely make some goals regarding my weight/health. I might try and pinch a few ideas off everyone on here before I decide what they will be! :)
