Ladies and gentlemen it is time…
If you can recall one of my very first posts, here is where I listed all the things I wanted to set out and accomplish in 2010. I figured that since we are about 1/2 way through the year, now would be as good of a time as any to get the ole list out and give it a check to see how I’m doing. Lets see shall we…
To lose another 35-45 lbs.- The year is not done yet people! But from that point, which I was at 51.8 lbs so far, I am now at 76.8 so that makes for 25 lbs lost from January till now!! I’m only 10.2 lbs away from being at goal weight so I think THIS goal will definitely be met for 2010!!
Train for & run the Philly Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon- I’m still doing it. We are saving for the trip & I’ve been being more consistent with my running. Whether it’s 2 miles or 8 miles or whatever, I’m trying to get out there more and more. Plus my 5K time just keeps improving!!
Go to the Dentist for a cleaning- As most of you know, I had a little emergency with an abscessed tooth that had to be taken care of right away. I’m proud to say that I took care of that AND I got a full deep cleaning done on my teeth. I’ve also been taking much better care of them and actually flossing! I wont be too ashamed to admit that I wasn’t someone who practiced the whole flossing routine daily, but I do now!!
Schedule a physical with my Dr.- I have one scheduled for August!! I was kind of hoping to get in sooner but I changed my dr. as well. I found someone more local who is also a runner. He has practiced sports medicine and is well known to deal with asthmatic issues. I’m hoping we will be a good fit together.
Start getting into Yoga again- I’m still not doing this weekly, but I have been incorporating some moves into my stretching routine. Its hard because I don't go to a gym where I can take a class and getting the TV downstairs to myself is next to impossible lately.
Take a family vacation- Due to financial strains & our trip to Philly, this most likely will not happen this year. :( I did throw a HUGE party for Frankie’s 40th birthday though.
Learn how to do a pushup!- I haven’t been working on regularly. I *SO* badly need to and want to start working on my arms. They are my least favorite body part as of lately. But I did try to do some pushups today!! This really is my next thing to do on my list. I *WANT* to be able to do a full pushup!
Go to the eye Dr's- CHECK!! And as usual, because I am blind, it cost me an insane amount of money. But this time I also got new glasses too so I guess I can’t complain. Plus they are ‘Apple Bottom’ glasses…that's right, by the infamous ‘Hot in heeeeere’ Nelly.
Start painting/drawing again- I have not done this really. I did buy some small canvases and started to paint a little but that slowly went by the way side. I’ve barely been able to set aside time for this blog, let alone paint.
No or WAY less Fast Food- Well, like I said in my original post, I don't eat much of it now anyways. But I am still in the habit of on Thursday nights either picking something up after my WW meeting or ordering take out. Though I do think I have gotten better and I am finding myself much more aware now than I was say 4 or 5 months ago. Its still a work in progress.
Try one new WW recipe a month- I did this pretty consistently for the first three months, but I haven't tried anything new lately. Wait…I tried chick peas today for the first time and I LOVE them!! But I haven't tried any new recipes lately. This I will work on. Anyone have any good suggestions?? Maybe for the grill…a summer related meal??
Start a blog- Done of course! I even have this blog…Twist The Heart!
So there we have it. I’d have to say that so far I’m pretty proud of myself. I have accomplished a lot in just 6 months. I’m on the right path and it’s a healthy and happy one, so that’s all that matters! I know I have things to work on and I still have every intention of doing so! XOXO
