I’ve decided to give up on January resolutions completely. At least ones having to do with losing/weight exercising. The weight thing never works out because while I usually do well in January, February comes along and there’s Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras and my birthday and I don’t want to eat well for those holidays. I want cake, dammit! So any good I did in January is lost in February. The constant snow and freezing temperatures also kept me from being able to go walking, which is the only exercise that I enjoy doing.
March is the perfect time for resolutions, though. The weather is improving and there aren’t any big holidays so I don’t have the excuse to eat bad stuff. So I decided to start over with my resolutions as of March 1st. I’m mainly going to focus on getting back to daily walking. I’ve made great strides in improving my diet over the last few years and we hardly eat out anymore so I feel like if I could just get back into a regular exercise routine that I would start losing weight again as opposed to plateauing like I have been since last summer.
Of course, the day after I decided all this it snowed again! I’m hoping that’s the last of it. I’m ready for Spring to get here.
