In the new year I plan to exercise more regularly, eat smarter, and lose weight. I have downloaded a couple new fitness apps for my phone and Jennie and I will be doing our own version of a group fitness plan. I joined the Parker Rec Center (PRC) last year and I have even managed to go each month enough to justify the expense. Jen suggested that maybe I should take it to the next level and get a few sessions with a trainer. I want to take some classes, too, thinking that I can get to meet new people and develop a type of accountability. I will take this coming week and try to get to the PRC every day (except Wednesday, of course).
I am going to pay more attention to what I eat this year as well. Jennie has Celiac disease so she cannot eat gluten. I have tried gluten-free a couple of times and I do feel better after a week or so. However, I find that I over-indulge when I abandon the g/f life. This year, I will allow myself to eat Clif bars for breakfast or for training, but try to eliminate other sources of gluten, including beer. Yep. I will reduce my intake of beer and change what I do drink to gluten-free options like Omission or Angry Orchard hard cider. Of course, there's always wine. 😉
So there it is... My fitness resolutions/goals/targets for 2014. I will be stepping on scale every Sunday morning and Jen will take my body measurements the last Sunday of each month, starting today. I'll use this blog to track my mileage for running and my progress on my weight-loss goals. Wish me luck!
