Back On The Wagon.....
Hello everyone! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend with family and friends, and haven't been too cold. It's even cold down here in lovely Coastal Alabama!
A bit of good news to report - I am now back on the wagon! Yesterday I absolutely had to FORCE myself to go exercise.....but.....I DID IT! It was cold, the wind was blowing hard, man I didn't not want to go for a 4-mile walk/run. I waited until about 2pm, when it warmed up to approx. 48 degrees and bundled up and away I went! I must admit, it actually did feel great to do something again! My "rest" period has been way too long, and boy can I feel it! Of those 4 miles, I ran less than 1 mile. Towards the end, I ran more just to be DONE and get inside where it was warm, haha.
Now the real question is this - did I exercise enough to burn off the calories from last night's dinner and wine??? Probably not! We went out to celebrate my younger sister's birthday. Grouper baked and covered in sauce, steamed veggies, gouda cheese grits and too much chardonnay! Needless to say, I was a little exhausted today and didn't do any exercise (unless you count laundry and taking a shower, LOL).
How are you managing your New Years resolutions? Doing ok so far? Don't let it get you down, just keep plugging away. That's what I plan to do!
'Till tomorrow.....enjoy the above pic of me and the hubby last night!
