A New Year and New Resolutions

It’s hard to believe that it’s already the end of January. I swear, the older I get the faster time goes. I never got around to setting goals this year. I was too focused on relaxing, recovering and starting life with my new husband. I simultaneously wanted to accomplish everything and do absolutely nothing. After few low-key weeks and lazy days on the couch I’m back to my same old self and surging ahead with plans and projects. We have a lot we hope to accomplish this year- our list of projects, plans, goals, and dreams is long yet I’m not motivated to share them, or put them down on paper. I like the idea of being able to change or let them go as 2015 comes at us. My true hope is that life will lead us to new adventures, plans and projects that I couldn’t have dreamed of much like 2014 did. In 2015, I want to go with the flow and see where life leads us.

Even though I’m not writing my goals and plans down this year there are still a few things I’d like to accomplish. You could even call them resolutions if you’d like…

I need to get back out there and run more! I got really comfortable with running very little in 2014. Most of my runs were 3-4 miles and it was a good week if I got out there two times. Some weeks I never even got out for a run. I love running, I really do. I love being alone with my thoughts, the fresh air, and sweating. Running just makes me feel good. So this winter I’m determined to get out and run more- despite the cold. My resolution is to run at least twice a week and not let rain, snow, wind or cold stop me.

Running

My other resolution is to do more push-ups! I’ve been back on the yoga mat lately and those chatarungas are hard! It was a reminder that push-ups really do help me stay strong. I used to do them almost every day at the end of my workout but since I started doing barre more I cut back on them. That means barre was my only source of strength training. Even though I usually go twice a week, it’s just not enough to maintain my strength.

Push-ups

Lastly, I’m getting back to my ab routine. I used to do this immediately following my set of push-ups but I have let it go and my abs show it. Doing abs in barre twice a week is not the same as doing abs 4 or 5 days a week. It’s time to get back to and build my core strength.

Abs

I’m leaving the definition of “more” open-ended. More may be 5 mile runs or more frequent short runs or a half-marathon. More might be a 30-day ab challenge. More might be push-ups every day. Or maybe it’s just simply getting back to finishing my workouts with abs and push-ups. Much like my goals for 2015, I’m leaving these resolutions open so I can go with the flow and see where life leads.
