Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday, and is ready to begin 2011. Even though it wasn’t easy for me to stay up until midnight (hey, I like to go to bed early!) I was lucky enough to ring in the new year with some wonderful friends & family.
Now seems like it would be the appropriate time to share some of my resolutions…..
1) Work on my blog: I really do enjoy updating my blog, however I seem to put it on the back burner of my list of things to do. I would love to share more information, pictures, recipes, and updates with all of you. Maybe even redesign the layout….
2) Run a race: How general of me. Well let me explain. Last January I had all the drive and motivation in the world to complete a sprint triathlon. However, as I began training, I started to suffer from what I thought was shin splints. After a visit to the foot doctor (followed by many more visits) I found out that I was suffering from pronation (my feet roll inwards as I run/walk) as well as other minor hip and foot issues that put a long hold on my new found love of running. I still tried to train, but found out that my dry/sensitive skin was not a fan of gym pools. Hey, everything happens for a reason. So while I found out that a triathlon wasn’t in the cards for me anytime soon, it did help me address my foot issues.
Anyway, back to running a race, I am hoping that my feet are strong enough this year to allow me to run a race. Depending on how strong they are, will determine the distance. Stay tuned!
3) Stop cursing: This one is embarrassing. Not many people know that over the last couple of months I have developed a horrible cursing habit. (Get out the soap!!) I am not really sure why, but I am sure that it is time to put an end to it. Ohhh…goodness….this is going to be a hard one.
4) Complete p90x: This one is even scary to type. You may have turned on your tv really late one night and saw the infomercial for p90x (power 90 extreme). It is a work out program consisting of 12 dvds that work on muscle training and cardio. For 90 days, you are supposed to use the dvds in a certain sequence that causes “muscle confusion”, meaning your body never gets used to what you are doing preventing your results from hitting a ‘plateau’. I have known a few people with success stories from the program. It is supposed to be a great way to build muscle.
P90x was given to me by a friend about a year ago. Once in a while, if I can’t get to the gym, I would pop in one of the dvds and get a great work out. But I have never done the 90 day sequence. Maybe it is time.
So those are a few of my resolutions for 2011. What are yours?
