Happy New Year!!!! 

 

What are your work out goals for January?  For the year?  Post on this thread.  It helps me to stay accountable when I write it down.

 

I saw a picture posted on Running.com that showed two runners in the snow with the caption  - "Summer Body starts in Winter"

 

Ain't that the truth!   My goal is 1500 minutes this month.   December kicked my butt with injury and sickness.  That never happens.... I'll be more careful this month. 

 

Let's get started!

 

1/1  - 20 minute walk just because I wanted to start the year and month off right

1/2  - 70 run on the treadmill at an 8:34 pace.  I hate the treadmill.

I'm going to pretend I didn't just drop out of the December thread!  I'm using MyFitnessPal now to track my food and exercise.  We've nightweaned, and frankly, she's probably ready to wean entirely, we're just not, yet.  Her interest level is at zero, and she's becoming more agitated as she nurses.  But this is not the breastfeeding forum, so I will just say that I'm glad that cutting calories is an option for me again since she's not nursing very much anymore, and losing my supply won't be a concern.  The health problems I was facing seem to be mostly in the past now.  A friend told me she was very frightened for me, and that was a big, big wake up call.  Getting my health back is a priority for me now, and will continue to be.

 

1/2 - 50 minutes yoga

I just keep chugging along...missing it every month but coming back for more because I like the accountability. I have a 1/2 marathon at the end of April and I don't want to miss 2 months of training and have to cram it all in once it warms up here. 

 

1/2 30min of intervals on the track


C is for Cookie 01-03-2013 12:15 PM

Well, I made the 1000 minutes last month...but just barely by 5 minutes. lol. My goal for this month is 1050 minutes.

 

This might be TMI but I am trying to get rid of these pesty plantar warts on my feet (they have been hurting for awhile now) and am using the vinegar and sacyclic acid treatment which literally burns off layers of the wart and the surrounding skin a little at a time. I'm still going to be exercising though (that won't get in my way) but if they DO hurt and make me go "ouch", I would have to take exercising to the back burner and wait for them to heal. So far so good though...thumb.gif

I'm adding a goal for myself to do at least 100 minutes of strength training as part of my 1000 minutes this month.  I hate strength training but I'd at least like to get to the point where I can do a proper push up.  I can only manage maybe 5 modified push ups right now.

 

1/3 60 min elliptical

1/4 60 min run/ walk on treadmill (i think I'm finally over my fear of running on the treadmill, yay!)

I know I am late but I'd like to join in!  For many reasons I really need to get my butt moving. I have been the martyr SAHM who puts virtutally no time into herself for the last 9 years and I have decided that 2013 is the year to start taking care of me again. I will turn 35 this year and my youngest, and last, son will likely wean soon. I have watched my mom battle with her weight and live a seditary lifestyle most of my life. She had a knee replacement at 55 and now at 60 can't walk because she needs a hip replacement so badly, her hip joint is actually jagged from the bones rubbing together. I am terrified if I don't change NOW this will be my fate as well.

 

It is the 11th so I am going to give myself a goal of 675 for the rest of the month.

1/11- 60 minutes (2- 20 minute 1 mile walk videos, 10 minutes with hand weights, 10 minutes of stretching)
