Still working out!! Yeah!

Hi Everyone....It's so great to see everybody back posting ;-)  the holiday are busy and fun but I love January and getting back to it :-)   
 Just wanted quickly post that I am still doing my commitment of 20 minutes a day...almost didn't today after work.  I was very tired and cranky.  ( I didn't set my stuff up before I left this morning )
 ...But I put on one of my favorite yoga dvd and I pushed my way through with some motivational self talk.   I told myself that I will feel so much better if I just did my 20 minutes, then I can sit down..and reminded myself how bad I feel if I just sat down .."you know you won't get back up to do any kind of workout".   Seemed to help. 

Now I have set everything up for after work tomorrow and off to bed to read.   I am also trying to set a better sleep routine.

Happy 2013 Everyone :-)

Well so far so good...I start a movement plan on December 22, 2012.   I don't like to start on January 1st feels like too much pressure :-)   So I started just before Christmas with working out 20 minutes a per day for 6 days a week.  I will be doing that for 30 days then increasing.   Since I have been working all year long to heal my hip and ankle I am taking it easy and trying for consistency.   That has always been a struggle in the past for me.   This year I really am aiming for consisted effort on my part.   I did very well last year with getting sugar out and had success with the hitting 30lbs down but it balance out at 27.5lbs just wouldn't move past that very frustrating.   I have done my best with changing how I eat now lets add some real movement.   I have read some about movement helping heal your metabolism; so I am adding it in;  I have tried before but I kept re-injuring myself.  That's why I asked around to some trainers and got some suggestions from them and this is what I came up with for me.

I have a choice of  free weights / yoga / zumba / bosa ball (probably more but that will do for now) -  all at home;  gyms scare me at this time of year :-)  plus I have everything I need at home.   I set everything up before I leave for work and then when I get home I change my clothes; turn on the dvd of choice and a 20 minute timer and go.   Then in 30 days I will increase to 30 minutes 6 days a week.  Each month evaluating every 30 days to see what I need or want next.  

Monday morning will be the weigh-in and measure-in to see my progress.  I will also do a blog that day for accountability :-)

New years *Wishes* to you all for the best outcomes in all that you do in 2013!
