Checking In

I think one of my New Year’s resolutions should be to be more consistent with things. I seem to lose focus and/or interest with some things including not being very good at updating this blog.

Well, it’s past New Year’s and I already have some resolutions so I guess I’ll add this to the list. I’m not sure how I feel about resolutions. I’m always trying to improve or make changes in myself anyway but I guess this is a way to jump start it.

I think it’s a good idea that I post my resolutions/goals for improvement on this blog to help keep myself accountable. So here goes…

  1. I want to finally get to my goal weight since I had my gastric bypass surgery over 3 years ago. I would like to lose 46 lbs by 7/4/15. I am going to start next week so I can get past not only my husband’s birthday today (and the cake I made) but also I’m running a 10k this coming weekend and I don’t think it’s a good idea to change my eating too much before that.
  2. Another goal is to go back to school for Psychology. I will need to start nearly from scratch but that’s ok. It’s a goal I’ve wanted to work toward for a long time and it finally feels like the right time. I’m planning to start in the summer semester.
  3. I’m not 100% positive about this one but I think I would like to run the Adirondack Marathon in September. I was going to run the one in New Orleans at the end of this month but I decided not to. More on that below.

So those are my very do-able goals for 2015. I’m very excited to accomplish them and I promise I will be better at updating this blog to show my progress!

As for not running the New Orleans marathon, I decided last month that it just wasn’t the right time. After my 12-mile run I was dreading even going out at all to run any amount. Add that to the short amount of time we were going to be able to stay in New Orleans (a city I’ve wanted to go to my whole life which deserves A LOT more time) and money in general (we are going back to Ireland in April) and it just wasn’t right. I’m not upset about it all which is really another sign that I made the right decision.

I’ll update more soon. Happy Tuesday!
