A New Year, A New Beginning

I feel like I am following the whole New Year’s resolution thing. I have never been fond of that. I guess I have always felt I shouldn’t use the New Year to change something about me. If I truly wanted to change it, it should be a work-in-progress for life that should start at any time. In any case, all the health challenges seem to be starting up now. So, I am going to take advantage of them.

I am starting in on the new Get Off Your Broom challenge hosted by The Domestic Pagan. This challenge has already started (I just haven’t gotten online to blog about it, til now) as of January 1. It is a 3 month challenge. I am combining this with the Gold’s Gym 12-week Challenge. The Gold’s challenge doesn’t start until January 28. My biggest dilemma with the month time difference is actually the measurements. I would prefer to use the Gold’s measurements since I think they will be more accurate than my own fumbling one-handed with my tape measure and their scale is definitely more accurate than mine. This weekend, I will post my own measurements and I will weigh-in on one of the Gold’s scales to at least start off the Get Off Your Broom challenge. I can say for certain that I did horribly during Christmas with all the temptations. I had hoped to regain some semblance of will-power with the first round of Get Off Your Broom, but I was sorely lacking in that category. Maybe if I practice harder all year, I will be able to resist better next year…
