2013 has arrived…
I am not one for New Years resolutions… it takes 30 days to make something a habit, so no resolution will hit home right away. That’s my opinion at least, and we are all entitled to one. I try to think of what I can do better, how I can be better, and maybe make a few goals.
Prior to NewYears I had already started with a new trainer, and was working out 4 days a week under his guidance, so working out wasn’t really going to be a resolution. Plus, it’s part of my job… as an athlete you are supposed to work out. So again, that can’t be a resolution.
Well on January 1st, my best friend, Emily Pitek, asked if I wanted to join her in a Fit 365 challenege. She got the idea from some coaches at Bama, I think, and basically you try to be active every day for at least a bit. Our goal is to do something every day, the bare minimum being 15 mins of cardio or last resort 200-300 abs. We are almost two weeks into the year, and I have only missed 1 day due to being sick.
Days I don’t meet Lance to lift, I find it rewarding to make time to go do something. I usually take a book and ride the bike, or run my dogs. Every now and then I make up a circuit in my house to do for 15 mins. The point of the challenge, is no matter how busy life gets, I can find at least 15 minutes to be active. Plus, I add 15 minutes in order to indulge in some sweet treats!
So on top of my fit 365 resolution (for lack of a better name) I have decided I will try to cook more, eat out less, minimize my coke intake, read a book a month (since I didn’t do this last year), and be less attached to my phone… we’ll see how it goes!
