Happy new year Aussie Chicks! Sorry to hear you're not well Gen that sucks. Well done on the .3kg though - as you say, a loss is a loss!
Your resolutions sound good Vonni
Great to hear positive plans!
I'm starting my new year off booze free. Eek!
I'd like to do a month just to show myself that I can but who knows how long I'll last. At the very least I want to stop drinking during the week. All that wine is delicious but really just more calories that I don't need. I've stocked up on soda water and as it's been scorching hot today I've been enjoying it with ice, lemon and a sprig of mint.
Other than that I've finally started on my running training as I need to be able to run for a decent length of time when it comes to starting my half marathon training. 3 days into the new year and I've been for a wee jog each day - 20 mins on the first 2 and managed 25 mins tonight. Just starting off slowly and looking to build up speed and endurance.
Read "Frence Women Don't Get Fat" last week and that was interesting. The theory is basically quality over quantity, don't eat unconsciously - sit down at a table to eat rather that in front of the telly, eat whatever you want but don't overdo portions. Some of it I thought was hooey (like eating nothing but leek soup for 2 days when you get started!!) but a lot made sense and it's given me stuff to think about.
Still going through lots of tough emotions with the breakup and am realising more than ever that I need to focus on looking after myself because if I don't nobody else will.
So for me, 2011 is going to be about regaining my confidence and my independence and getting fit and fabulous again
Hope to see everyone posting here regularly - lets help keep eachother motivated!!
