2013 Goals

Like most people, at the top of my list of resolutions is to lose weight, eat healthy and exercise more. I don't know why I feel energized to get started today, but not yesterday or the day before that. For some reason the start of the New Year is a good time for new beginnings, like only starting a diet on a Monday and not on Wednesday.

If eating healthy is on your list of goals, hop on over to my Less of Me Blog. After reading through the posts today, I was surprised at what great advice I have on there. I must have been very enthusiastic when I started the blog nearly three years ago, but you can see from the  blog that both the enthusiasm and posts have sadly fizzled out.

I plan to rectify that and post more frequent updates (at least weekly). I've dusted off the elliptical and dragged it out of the garage, found the weights and now the rain has stopped, I'll be lacing up my trainers and clipping on the pedometer.

What goals do you have for 2013 and will you be blogging about it?

I'm with you on that the start of the new year seems like the perfect time for new beginnings. One goal I want to set for myself this year is to be a better gardener. I tended to let things die last year :( but not this year. Happy New Year and good luck with your goals.

I started loging calories on a new phone app. Sure enough by 10am I had maxed out the "goal". Well, I exaggerate, but it sure makes one go Whoa! So, exercise. And I absolutely must finish my book, and start the super rewrite/edits. I've farted around enough. Other goals - lunch with friends, but let's eat healthy!!! Good luck on 2013!

Oh yes, I'm always on the "eat healthier and exercise" bandwagon come January 1. This time I'm low-keying it all, trying to take little steps in the right direction instead of setting specific targets.
Hope you have a wonderful New Year!

I'm starting a weight loss challenge at work Monday for 8 weeks. Men vs women. Lol This weekend I plan to eat all the junk food in the house before weigh-in Monday morning :)

Good luck with your goals. I need to start working out again too. The job got in the way.
