Yesterday’s daily prompt was
Have you ever made a New Year’s Resolution that you kept?
Well, yes and no. I’ve never kept the ones where I said that I would stop biting my finger nails or finally lose that last 10 lbs to bring my weight back down to pre-pregnancy weight – it’s been 18 years now I don’t think that’s going to happen! However, for the past couple of years I’ve set little goals for myself which I have met.
Last year I set a goal to have something for breakfast every day. It could just be a glass of orange juice but as long as I put something in my stomach at the beginning of the day it counts. I did it and am still doing it – yay me!
I also “resolved” to end the year at the same weight or less than I started last year. I didn’t finish lower than my weight on 31 December 2011 but my weight on 1 January 2013 was less than my highest weight during 2012 so I decided that counts.
This year, I have set a goal to do 250 to 300 minutes of exercise every week. I’m not sure I’ll manage this in December in the run up to Christmas but you never know. I managed an exercise streak of something like 30 weeks last year so am going to try to make it 52 this year.
