We are already in May of 2018, how time flies. Here is a question for you: how are you keeping up with your new years resolution? Did it last the month of January? Maybe your resolution is still going strong.
I had two new years resolution:
- Read two books a month
- Workout three times a week
I’m behind on my reading. Trying to keep up with my resolution but I get busy and life gets crazy. Never the less I am giving it a good go. At least I make sure that I know what two books I’m supposed to be reading during the month.
Something my boyfriend does to make sure he reads enough is to read at least 25 pages a day. I should probably adopt this goal too.
I am doing really well with this goal. Part of what helped jump start this was we did a weight-loss challenge at work. I worked my butt off and won it. Hard work and serious dieting – 20 lbs in 90 days. Needless to say I was sore and grumpy a lot.
Since then I’ve mostly kept up with my diet and I’ve kept up with working out, although I’ve shifted focus. My main focus was weight-loss and now I’m working on adding muscle tone.
Something else that has helped is having goals farther out. Keltin and I did the Ft. Worth Zoo run in April and we are doing another 5k in December. These are fun and they give us a goal to aim for besides just staying healthy. Also, having an accountability partner is great if you have trouble motivating yourself, thank you Keltin.
Here is a recent picture after the weight loss. Also, I freaking LOVE this outfit. Check out my Instagram for more details on it.
Let me know how your own resolutions are doing and have a fantastic weekend!
