What is Your New Year’s Resolution?

5k

Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on January 7, 2013

I was very set on not committing to any resolutions this year.  I never do.  However, a friend of mine came over for a visit and gave me a very convincing speech.  Basically, we all have room for improvement.  Despite it being the first of the year or half way through, we should always be looking for ways to improve.  How could I argue with that?  Last year, although I did not call it a New Year’s resolution, I did try to vary my exercise routine a bit.  It has been so fun joining Jennifer and friends on the trail on Sundays since we also get to take our dogs!  Above is a picture of my friends Christina, Carol, and I after a very muddy 5K run.

As for this year, my resolution is to get more sleep. I always tell people that I just can’t get myself organized enough to get to bed early.  The truth is, I just don’t make it a priority.  So, let’s see how I do!  🙂

What are your New Year’s resolutions?  Would anyone else like to commit to something?

Last week, I had a difficult time completing my exercise plan. I had a family emergency to deal with. This week I am planning a easy week because I don’t know what this week will have in store for me.

Almost better!  This time next week I should be back to normal. Last week, it felt so good to return to exercise. I was sore from being sick and not being active. Also, my tennis elbow is almost completely recovered. Things are looking up. 🙂

I am back and ready to try again after a week where little went as planned. The last three days of the week, I spent in bed fighting some horrendous cold that I am still trying to get over. So I am anxious to get healthy and active again.  🙂

Last week, I started off strong and fizzled out in the end.  Still, I am proud of 7 weeks of regular exercise. I am feeling more energetic and flexible. Also, my tennis elbow is doing better. This week’s schedule is lighter, I am trying to be realistic this week. Wish me luck.

Last week was a good week! My tennis elbow is getting better and I was able to complete all of my exercise goals, except for Saturday my tennis class was canceled because of rain. This week I plan to work on my weight training. At this point, I don’t feel like I am improving. So I plan on upping my weight training to three times a week.
