What will 2013 bring?

C&H new-years-resolutions

Although a great sentiment, there are a few things I need to change!

Ok, so it’s been over two months since my previous post. There are several reasons why I haven’t been posting, and I’ll get into that in future posts. Believe me, you’ll hear all about it.

I was hesitant to write in the new year because I didn’t want to write down some unattainable New Year Resolutions. I didn’t want to write down some attainable New Year Resolutions either, because when I looked back 6 months or a year down the road, I would hate to be absolutely disappointed if I didn’t accomplish my resolutions.

So instead I’ll start with this:

By January 1st, 2013, I had gained 7 pounds since the middle of December. The holidays were full of laziness and eating/drinking a lot for me. Much more eating and drinking than I wanted. Even though the weather was rather mild, I still didn’t get out and run, or raise my heart rate at all. The result, 7 damn pounds. Now, I’m not a slave to the scale, but I could tell I had gained weight because of the way I felt, and the way my clothes fit.

On January 1st, I decided I needed to do something about it. I started working out everyday. So, here we are on January 15th, and I’ve worked out about 12 of the 15 days, and I’ve dropped 4 pounds already. I have several races I’m running this  year and I want to be ready and FIT.

2013 will be the year of FIT for me.

The question for this new year is not ‘What will 2013 bring?‘, the question is ‘What will I bring to 2013?"Priorities" Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.

I will bring HAPPINESS to 2013. How can I do that?

With these 4 Priorities I will focus on:

FIT
SOBER
PAY DEBT
SAVE MONEY

If I can concentrate on those 4 Priorities, it will be easier for me to attain HAPPINESS. Don’t get me wrong, I feel happy now, but there are these 4 issues that are nagging in the back of my head. I don’t need to conquer them, I just need to face them and make some progress on them.

The new few posts will tackle these issues, and also track my work-outs, running and Fitness goals!

Happy New Year friends! Let’s make 2013 the best we possible can!!
