    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.

    I'm going to get my MoJo back. Be ready to socialise and get back to the gym as soon as we are allowed. Get my house ready for visitors - they are coming and I will welcome them with open arms and a great big hug and a kiss. I've missed them all - friends and family. So these few days we have in January I will wring every drop of happiness and activity out of them. By the time the snowdrops are fully out, I will have got back to my pre Christmas fitness level (It wasn't high, but I need a small target to get going) I am also planning a quite dry January! My liver will be sad not to be working as hard as it has had to for the last few weeks, but I reckon it needs a holiday. Great vibes coming everyone's way. x

    I did pretty good two years ago and then gained back what I lost. I'm really going to try to do better this year. I'm starting over on My Fitness Pal and hopefully by tracking my food I'll have some success. Wish me luck!!!

    Goals 2021: Continuing with
    - Healthy living: More cooking with veggies, less wine. No diets, only moderation
    - Moving: 1400 miles (in 2020 1350 miles). Mainly outside in nature.
    - Running again: Preparing for 5k and 10k
    - Weight Maintenance: Between 125 and 130 pounds.
    - Logging food again: To see if I get enough nutrients especially proteins.

    New for 2021:
    - Strength exercises especially for my back and arms
    - Dry January and February, to reset the habit of drinking a glass of wine every day instead of only in the weekend
    - Learning to use all my semi-professional camera's features!

    I do not have resolutions as such, I have a "Fit by 40" plan (I'll be 40 in 2023).

    Nice plan! To quote Antoine St. Exupery, "A goal without a plan is just a wish." Good luck! I'm sure you'll do this!

    1. Continue my keto way of life
    2. Drop the last 15 pounds
    3. Get off all meds (if possible)
    4. Gradually add in more exercise - starting with walking 2 miles a day and working up from there, adding a little each week.

    I haven't felt good about my weight for years. I want to exercise 6 days a week even if I don't feel like it, eat healthier, stay hydrated (I don't drink enough water) and above all lose weight and keep it off. I know being 41 presents a challenge as far as metabolism goes, but I'd love to ditch some of my health conditions if I can.
