Wow. Already January 15th. Where oh where does the time go?! The first week of the new year I was sick. Sick to the point of not going to work on the first Monday of the new year. They day everyone starts fresh. Everything is new! New schedules, new notebooks, new calendars, a new out look on eating, new sneakers for the gym (side note: I feel like EVERYONE got new sneakers for Christmas.. and there I am in my old beat up kicks! LOL.); a fresh clean start. As I thought about all newest, I was buried in bed under 5 blankets. Nice way to start the new year. But alas, I’m back out there, living my new routine.

Finding a balance between everything stills seems to be a struggle at times. I have turned myself into a master list maker. It seems to be the only way to get anything done these days! All errands seem to get done quicker and better, except for the dreaded gym. Not sure when I started to dread the gym. It’s sad and I don’t like that feeling. So in order to boost up my willingness to get to the gym better, I decided to sign up with a group of friends who created their own Biggest Loser competition as a fundraiser for Relay for Life. It seemed to be the best option and a win win for all. Something to keep me on track a bit better and an important fundraiser!!

I am reclaimed what I am eating. There are no more cookies being eaten at 10 o’clock at night, cakes consumed after lunch and venti lattes for my afternoon snack. It is still early, and it takes what 21 days to create a routine you can stick to?!?!?… but I have high hopes I can do it 🙂

I’m trying all new things at the gym, finding classes that work and skipping the classes that don’t work. Tonight I’m headed to a different gym, to try a completely different class to me! Should be interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes!
