Healthy Resolutions


I love the start of a new year and all the resolution setting that comes with it. This year I've decided I want to be healthy. I want to get in shape and be more active. I want to replace fat with muscle and I want those endorphines (happy hormones) that come with exercising. To help me with my goal, I wanted to join a group, but thought I would feel self-concious at a weight-watchers meeting or the like since I am mostly aiming to lose only a little fat. I ended up going with Denise Austin's online program "Fit Forever!" Ok-so she can be a little cheesy, but I find the constant cheerfulness somewhat uplifting and she's very encouraging. Today is day 1 but so far I like it. It's also nice to have a place to report in, to get help with meals, track my progress, etc. I am very excited about it. I have other goals this year like actually scrapbooking, save a little more $$, give up the credit card, going to the cabin, getting together with friends/family more, but becoming healthy and adopting a more healthy lifestyle is my focus this year-both physically and spiritually. Does anyone have any fun goals for 2008?

I want to read more and be stronger. I've exercised and done strength training every day except Sundays for 3 weeks. The strength thing came about before New Years but it's still my yearly goal.

Mine too. I also started before christmas. I just seem to get excited about New Year's goals and try to get a head start on them. Good luck in your goals. Pass on the names of good books you read!

Good for you! I know it's something that I will be working on as well, although I don't think I'll refer to it as a New Year goal. Sometimes they don't last much past the first few months. :)

I loved her way back when I was once young and fit. I would faithfully watch her show and one called bodies in motion. She looks great she has got to be old- exercise is the key huh:)
