Get my head right and get back to serious lifestyle changes.
I slipped this year, listened to my own excuses and ate back weight I had lost.

1. Lose weight
2. Change to the Mediterranean diet
3. Start exercising
4. Stay well hydrated
5. Stay e-cigarette free
6. Stay alcohol free
7. Stick to a routine
That will do to start but plan to work in, meditation, joining a yoga class once it's possible to do so, get my anxiety under control, read more. 🙂
Check a local studio or gym. Many are offering Zoom classes.
It’s a good way to sample various instructors or styles, and gain some experience in privacy. You don’t even have to run video on yourself during zoom if you don’t want, although some instructors will provide feedback if they are able.
Stay COVID free.8
No so much resolutions, more goals of things I want to achieve in 2021
- Be a really good hula hoop dancer by the end of 2021. I have done some classes in 2020 and have signed up for more in 2021 along with a personal commitment to practice everyday. Hopefully this will lead from being a complete beginner to being someone that is interesting to watch when I do my hoopy thing. Why is this a goal - i like to learn new ways to move my body and this is choice for this year and hopefully the least intense of the circus arts to learn
- Get to the point where I can hold a 1 minute freestanding handstand. I got up to 20 sec at the beginning of 2020 but had to give up handblancing as i developed tendonitis in my shoulder and I had to choose between handstands and aerials so not to overtax my shoulder and aerials were more appealing. This will be achieved by a daily practice and doing lots of pre-hab work to keep my shoulders healthy. Reason why - i have been chasing handstand goals for years
- A year of no alcohol. I took a year off in 2019 and it felt so mentally and physically good. Not sure why I started drinking alcohol again but I need to refocus and exercise self discipline which is good for the soul
- Drop 10kg that I have been trying to drop for the past 2 years. This is in the nice to achieve but not mandatory category as it doesn't effect my health and fitness but being lighter would make pull ups so much easier. And I think I would look more aesthetically pleasing at a lower weight.
- Learn Korean as I like learning new languages and am currently obsessed with K-drama so it would nice to be able to watch without reading subtitles12
To get back to my 2015 goal weight. Ride my motorcycle on more trips other than commuting. Kayak more. Be more active in general.8
2020 and the year of COVID has taught me what I should have realized before. It made me see that for my own success, I need independence and personal accountability. In the past, I belonged to WeightWatchers to control my weight, and went to the gym to motivate my exercise. If anything interfered, then that was the reason for weight to increase or exercise to be forgotten.
This year, COVID magnified this flaw. With shutdowns activated, and six and a half months of comfort eating and Netflix while waiting it all out, I had added 10 lbs to my upward creeping weight. Mid-September, I think the "no end in sight" finally spurred me into action. I got active on MFP. I committed to track both the good and the bad, and, through the MFP Community, I found and joined Challenges that connected me with like minded people, and reinforced my growing focus and motivation. As 2020 ends, my dairy tracking and fitness are better and more consistent than when I was depending upon WW and the gym, and I can see how this path, supported by MFP, will lead to better health - plus it is flexible and portable to boot.
Goals for 2021
- Complete my weight loss journey (20+ lbs down since September, and 4 and 8 lbs to goal)
- Embrace maintenance, which is much less exciting than weight loss
- Remain active in the MFP Challenge Groups, and both accept and offer support
- Expand my self-reliant fitness options by adding body weight and/or dumbbell training workouts
- Continue daily food journaling
- Improve my hydration - my biggest downfall, and have been admonished by at least three doctors
- Stop saying "When I grow up I'll (fill in the blank)". At 59, that excuse is getting old.
I am excited for 2021, and the good that I hope it will bring.14
Goals for 2021:
-Consistent tracking of food AND water intake (increase water intake!)
-Move my body more through enjoyment of simple activities like walking, biking, hiking, dancing with the dog, etc
-Minimum two days a week spend some time building muscle
-Get my sleep schedule back on track
My Intentions for the New Year are as Follows:
1. Put me first so I can serve others effectively.
2. Weightloss. It is a lifestyle change. Embrace new habits.
3. Work less! I don't know what that will look like, but I think that I will not use work as an excuse to eat out for dinner or not put in a workout. My goal is to leave and/or stop work on time.
4. Kundali Yoga. I will incorporate this into my routine. Mind, body, and soul
5. Daily Prayer. When I wake up and set my prayer intention and gratitude.
6. Get my precious sleep back. It is out of whack for sure. My own doing.
7. Love my journey...give myself grace and mercy for hiccups along the way.
8. Love my critics and Give lots of love to my supporters.
9. Get to the point where my exercise choice is out of my comfort zone: i.e. dancing again
10. FREE MYSELF FROM MY OWN MENTAL PRISON OF I CAN'T...and replace it with " WHAT IF I CAN" and DO IT.14
Hit 109 kgs by February
Hit 99 kgs by April
Get to onederland by June
Hit <20% bf by the end of the year
Do dumbbell workouts 3 times a week till gyms open
Join a gym(when they open) and follow a beginning lifting program continuously for the rest of the year
Learn to cook at least 12 new healthy recipes3
1. Lose the final 47lbs and hit 100lb weight loss.
2. Keep exercising
3. Keep tracking and being accountable to myself8
2021 is going to be the best year of my life - yet.
And if it isn't, it won't be for my lack of trying to make it so.8
Get my body fat percentage to between 15% - 16% and keep it there without sacrificing too much weight. I'm under 17% now and progressing. I'm not trying to look like Captain America, but I don't like jiggling when I walk. I also plan to hike more this year at new places.6

Happy New Year, Everyone. I wish you all good health in the coming year.
no comfort eating, food is not comfort, go to something that is good for me.5
I started losing the weight a month ago.. My Resolution would be to continue to, "take back my life!"
Not only physically but mentally and emotionally, as well. I strive to be more aware of what I consume and how much. I told myself not to be discouraged by weight gain. I'm only human.. This just means I have to work harder to lose the weight,, so for this reason, I will continue.5
You guys have some really impressive goals... I just want to move from "obese" to "overweight" and stay in that category. Just 10-15 pounds to go after losing 30 lbs since August. No desire to reach my supposed ideal weight, but would love to never be obese again.15
I want to be able to love my body. I wish I could say "again", but I've never loved myself. I just want to look in the mirror and be happy with what I see, get through a day without saying "I hate you" to myself. I'm hoping to lose some weight and tone up to maybe do this, but I'm not sure if I'll be able too. I'll cross my fingers that I'll be able to reach my goals in 2021.11
1. To carry on with my weight loss journey no matter how many "bad days" I have.
2. To go through with my life changing surgery, and try my hardest to recover for the rest of the year.
3. To get started on my portfolio for work, and actually ask for help when I need it.
4. To meditate and reflect more.5
CONSISTENCY - Mindful consistency. For me its my understanding that being consistent is the key.6
I don't really believe in New Year's resolutions, but I am using the new year to motivate me to:
1. Lose the weight I gained this year from an injury and the quarantining.
2. I want to feel good about myself when I defend my dissertation in the fall!
3. I want to FINALLY learn how to maintain a healthy weight. Losing and gaining are easy, but I haven't found that in between space yet.6
