How I think I look and reality!

For me, there is so much truth in these images! I’m still laughing.

I’m still plugging away training for the Color Run in July. I’m using a treadmill and the C25K app. I’m determined to keep at it no matter what I look like (see above photo). I’m also looking for healthy recipes. Do you have any to share??

Resolutions … yada yada yada

Oh my! 2013 is here and my list of resolutions is still in draft form. One item that is the typical suspect on a New Year’s resolution list is exercise. The older I get the more I understand the importance of regular exercise. I’m not talking about becoming Ernestine Shepherd, even though I find her story quite motivating, I’m talking about being functionally fit. I’m still working on what that looks like both in exercise and eating healthy. I want to create a realistic plan that will work for me.

In the mean time, I found this list of exercises we’d be better off leaving behind in 2013.

– Jumping on the bandwagon.

– Beating your head against the wall.

– Beating your own drum.

– Dragging your heels.

– Jumping to conclusions.

– Grasping at straws.

– Fishing for compliments.

– Throwing your weight around.

– Passing the buck.

-Repeating excuses.

Seriously. To me, healthy living is at the center of the target for 2013. I don’t think the rest of my resolutions will be successful without it. I’m not standing still while I figure out what will work best for me. I’m working on doing something that points to my healthy living goal everyday. What plans do you have for 2013?
