Happy (Lunar) New Year!!!!

28 Jan

lunar-new-year

Ah.

So here we are – Yes, we’re 3 weeks in to the New Year (4 weeks?) and it’s like I’ve been in hiding right?

What about consistency Anne? What about better blogging Anne? Where have you been ANNE???

You are absolutely right!

I started the year with a trip to Disney — which really makes it hard for me to re-adapt to the real world. But it was Disney and it was fun so I don’t feel *too* bad about it! But more on that later (see, I didn’t say “soon” so… 🙂 )

And that consistency thing? Well, I’ve actually been working on that – behind the scenes as it were.

How you might ask?

Well, let’s see….

I’ve been planking every day — and it’s HARD. Though I’m up to 90 seconds so that’s some progress
I’ve been working on more consistent meals during the work week – batch cooking on Sunday. And it’s been healthy batch cooking too!
I’ve been making sure that there are no dirty dishes in the sink when I go to bed at night.

They’re baby steps but better than I usually am!

I really do have to step it up though – my 2017 race dance card is filling up with my first Half Marathon of the year in FIVE WEEKS!! So really need to get back to running, right?!!

So starting this week – tomorrow even – I’ll go back to posting my weekly run schedule and my progress with sticking to it. It truly helps me stay on track. And keeps me – what? – that’s right, Accountable.

Wish me luck!!! And send those good consistency vibes my way!!

Oh, and, really – Happy New Year!!!

First off, thanks for stopping by — 2016 was not the best for this site. I was MIA for most of it. I would plan a post, get it mostly written out (you should see my draft folder!) and then need pictures from my phone or camera and then…..crickets. Then a couple of weeks later I’d do the same. And again and again.

Then, I would be all “Well, I haven’t posted about June so I can’t jump in to August and now look it’s New Year’s Eve Eve and dang….lost the whole year”. Frankly, I beat myself up a lot about it. Which is dumb but I do dumb sometimes!

And, somewhere along the line I lost ALL my mojo — my running mojo, my eating right mojo, my MOJO! I had little motivation to do much of anything.

Hopefully 2017 will be different – I am hoping to be completely mojo’d out! Or, at least be better than I was in 2016

A friend of mine (probably a few friends actually) chooses a word for the year and I’ve determined that for 2017 my word is CONSISTENCY.

consistency-1

Consistency in everything I think and do.

That means, consistently following through on my plans.

Consistently following a training plan for whatever crazy runs I sign up for this year.

Consistently working towards a much healthier diet

And, consistently posting here – and not kicking myself for days when I don’t. I had hoped in the beginning to use this blog as a means of being accountable to myself and that has just not happened as much as I’d thought.

So, being consistently accountable for my actions (good, bad and otherwise!) is a big goal. Probably the biggest of all.

Of course I also have the usual “lose weight” “get stronger” “do new stuff” resolutions ….but more on that soon.

Really.

If you’re here, thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll keep in touch. And if I happen to write something you like, share with your friends.

Hope to see LOTS more of you this year
