Is this where I'm supposed to recap and set goals?
I started the year trying cross country skiing. The Mr loved it, me? Not so much. BUT I did like snowshoeing and burned comparable calories so it's all good. Now if it would just freakin' snow so we could actually do it, we'd be good!
We played our version of tennis which should be renamed "one ball chase" for an hour.
We went on a hot air balloon ride over Napa Valley.
Added some pretty hard workouts that we actually were able to do and they're ones fit people groan about so we're pretty proud of that.
Honestly, those were the highlights. 2011 was a year of frustration on the weight loss front. We're looking to not repeat that.
Stuff we're implementing for 2012
When we take vacations, big or small, no high cal day the Saturday after we get back. We eat what we want on vacation every day and if we want to get back to pre-vacation weight a donut or pizza isn't going to speed that up so, new rule. Period.
We'd like to incorporate yoga. I got a yoga DVD for Christmas that I asked for, we watched it and he fell asleep and I fast forwarded out of boredom. That's a good sign. *rolling eyes* So while I was tempted to say yoga every Friday (which is usually our rest day) but I know with certainty we won't so instead I'll say, we'll do it if we feel like it which will be at least once a month.
I want to make more homemade items. Whether its soups, pasta sauce, tortillas or cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning, I want to know what's going into my foods. I'm not saying I'm going to buy a cow to keep on the lanai and churn my own butter and shuck my own wheat from the field or stop going to Trader Joe's or big box grocery stores but there is pride in being able to make your own food and I want that for us.
As for the rest? We'll just tweak as we go. I'll always be on the lookout for new workouts to challenge us, I'll always track my food and I'll always cook awesome meals that make this lifestyle seem like people who gorge on crap are the ones missing out.
Anything in particular you are going to add/do differently for 2012?
