I’m glad you guys like the resolutions post. Originally, I had planned to do “12 in 2012″, but I’m obviously not as ambitious as originally thought and settled with 10.
Also, if any of you have connections and could help me track down a prince to marry (resolution #10), that would be just lovely. Thanks in advance!
Anyway, it’s back to work for this chick. Back to work. After 12 days off. Sigh…
At least it’s a short week?
No? Not convincing enough? Well crap.
Either way, back to work we go. But before I overload on coffee and read a thousand emails that will surely keep me busy until this afternoon, let’s chat about this fantastic new year we’re currently in. Shall we?
Like any other crazed and delusional kid with new years resolutions, I do want to try and consider this week as a way to kick off a great year of (hopefully) good things.
Starting with a semi-overhaul on healthy habits. I say “semi” because I consider myself decently healthy already and also because my life is not complete without cookies. I meant what I said yesterday– more is always better.
But there’s a time and place for everything. Cookies can wait for now. This week is all about focusing in on the eats. Starting as of yesterday because January 1st/New Years Day/National Hangover Day/Rest Day was spent eating a combo of ice cream and chips and dip. I told my visiting friend that she was an enabler.
Although it’s not like I minded.
Anyway, as luck would have it, I won a sweet giveaway from Tracey and received coupons for free Bertolli frozen soup meals.Granted, quite a few pre-packaged soup meals are high in sodium, but how awesome is free food? Especially when it’s good free food?Seriously, the only real issue I have is the sodium content and maybe the price being a little high- I’d have to watch for sales before being willing throw it in the cart. Other than that, it was delicious, filling, and a serving was definitely enough for me. Each package comes with two servings. That means, in my singledom, I get free dinner and lunch for the next day. Sometimes it pays to be attracted to boys who never call before 6:00 pm. Holla’.
So the soup/salad meals are going well. As are other aspects of my health kick.
After a fabulous rest day, the ice cream and chips seemed to give me the needed energy to hit up the gym and log 4.6 miles. With this whole wanting to “run a faster 8k” thing in my head, I was able to start at 8:40 and work my way down to 7:53 over the span of miles. Can’t say I’ve been tracking pace time as of late, but this is as good of a time to start as any, right?
Oh dear. Maybe I really am getting serious about this whole New Years thing.
Now if only everyone else would get less serious about those New Years resolutions so I wouldn’t have to fight the crowds for a treadmill….
