Rethinking Resolutions

I don’t have any New Year’s Resolutions this year… at least I don’t have any yet.

πŸ™‚

Ryan and I were talking about resolutions this morning and we’re both drawing a bit of a blank.

Of course there’s the fall back “I’ll live a healthier life” blah, blah, blah, but I like to make my resolutions tangible and exciting. I’ll put some thought into my goals for the upcoming year and get back to ya. Right now I’m thinking my main goal is to plan a beautiful wedding without getting stressed out and caught up in the little things. (All you former brides are probably thinking “easier said than done…”)

What are your New Year’s resolutions?

My latest Examiner article addresses weight loss resolutions and a new way to approach them, so those hoping to lose weight might actually succeed. By rethinking weight loss resolutions and putting a healthy spin on vows to lose weight, long-term results are much more likely to occur. Click here to check it out!

Today

It’s another cold day in Florida! Brrr.

After getting to the gym in time for my typical Wednesday 5:45 a.m. BodyPump class, I noticed the teacher’s weights and bench were not set up and she was nowhere to be seen. Not good! Unfortunately we learned her car broke down so no BodyPump for me this morning.

Instead I decided to jump around the gym, hopping from weights to cardio machines and back:

  • 10 min. stair master
  • Leg press
  • Leg extensions
  • 10 min. stair master
  • Bicep curls
  • Shoulder presses
  • Tricep dips
  • Deadlifts
  • 5 min. elliptical
  • Bridges (aka the most awkward exercise to do in the gym ever)
  • Ab work

After that I was hungry!

  1. Kick butt workout girlie! Love it!

  2. I don’t usually “do” resolutions, but after thinking long and hard, I came up with 10 for 2010. It took me some time, but I did it. My resolutions aren’t huge and I think that works best for me. Small improvements or changes that will add up.

    Goodluck with yours!

  3. Great article you wrote…loved it!
