What are you doin' New Year's, New Year's Eve...?

Holy MOTHER it's cold out there! Took me 20 minutes to thaw my ride so I could run some errands. I'm thinking a longer scraper is in order; mine's like the size of my hand and makes removing snow and ice SUPER fun.

Got a good workout in this morning. I've been rationalizing putting off healthy eating with "well if I at least work out, I'm on a good track". Ha! Progress not perfection. Ü

I'm working tonight for the holiday, and I'm actually alright with that. This year has been so tough, and I'm not feeling fond enough of it to humor it with an official goodbye, so take that! Here's to a new one.

New Year's Resolutions, again. Again.

It's time, again, to set those lofty goals for the new year. Have mine ever really changed? *static* Lose weight, get in shape, eat healthily, lose weight, lose weight, exercise, get healthy. Really? Seems to be a perpetual pattern, no? Perhaps I'm missing something, like the actual steps to reach the goal.

Trying again. This year, I will commit to (and I reserve the right to change these at any time):

-Exercise 4-6 days a week
-Drink more water/less diet coke (!)
-Participate in a 5 and 10k run
-Track daily on

Writing these out where people can see helps me be accountable, and I'll need help from my support network to stay motivated! Any thoughts, ideas, shares, or other is welcome. Oh, and I will be starting this program of progress (I just alliterated!) on January 2, as there is much to tempt my love of crappy but delicious food left in the house, though I predict it will be gone by that time. Here's to 2011!
