Here it goes.... I am not one to make resolutions but just might be doing that this year. I usually stick with eating healthy at all times, holidays or not, but this year I really went off track and ate lots of junk but it was fun! I enjoyed every bit of it but my stomach is not happy one bit! I have been dealing with a daily tummy ache over it all and lacking a little energy because of not eating right.

I also need to get back to my regular work out routine and get back to the gym. My husband and I plan to invest in bikes this year and go riding at the lake. I also want to get back to running again and compete in another race starting with a 5k. Sounds like a lot but I will try!!!

My weight is okay but I just want to feel better overall! I am making a resolution??? This will be a first in over 20 years but here it goes, healthy new me for 2013! *crosses fingers*

This year (2012) I started walking three to five miles a day at least four days a week beginning in January. This is done mostly during my work days on breaks and lunch hour.

In May I bought a used vintage British Raleigh three speed (pic on FB) and then a new Schwinn Riverside seven speed a couple of months later. Sometimes I bike instead of walk.

In addition I've just about cut out "grazing" all day long at my desk and I tend to be eating smaller portions with somewhat better choices.

I've dropped around fifteen pounds and just generally feel better!

For 2013 I don't really plan on anything much more other than just sticking to what I'm doing (unless it's finding more time for riding!).

I will continue with the program I am on and add to that more walking and less sitting.

Back to the gym for me. A few years ago I did a 10k run and really enjoyed it. I want to do another one this year. Something to aim for.

You guys have some great resolutions!

Keep up the good work, RJD!!!

Track, the main thing to remember is just don't keep tempting food around. Fill your house with good, fresh healthy foods around. Stay away from processed foods as well (as much as possible). It seems like a big step and seems impossible to follow through with but I have done this going on 4 years now and it's not hard once you get in the habit. I did get a little wild over the holidays this year but it's okay, I will get back on track! I have never had to do this for weight loss, just did it to feel better overall, so it's hard for me to give testimony on that but I feel a healthy eating habits can only lead to a healthy weight. I will get with you more on this later. I don't have all the answers but I do a lot of research. I am sure others on here have some good tips too! Good luck to you! You are already doing well with the Tae Kwon Do!

Last year I hit the gym five days a week in mid-march. I can't express how different I've felt. So first and foremost is to continue to be accountable and live a healthier life style.

I have been really bad about posting around here outside of December although I really love this website and enjoy the company of the members here. So I hope to stay connected more then "December".

And finally, I have some career driven goals for the year. I wont get into boring specifics, but it's going to take lots of dedication and hitting the books. Trying to fit a lot of that in an already hectic day is going to be challenging.

Good luck to all on their NYR's!
