New Year New Me Physical Health Day 1

New Year New Me Physical Health Starting Right In 2017
OK Starting Slowly

Alright everyone here it is January 1st, the start of the new year. Where usually all good intentions come to die hehe. You know the resolutions that everyone says they are going to start the very 1st day of the year but end up putting it off and putting it off till the next year comes around. Well this year is not like the last…I hope. Maybe doing this blog will help me stay focused, maybe it wont who knows. With God, and all of you of course, as my witnesses I am surely gonna try. So how did day 1 go you may ask.

Well today I got up and ate a bowl of cereal…alright it was cookie crisps but hey its a slow start. So my day didn’t go as planned but I still did more then I thought. I get why people who have New Years resolutions have a hard time starting on day 1. You stay up late on New Years Eve to watch the ball drop and bring in the new year with family and friends then when you finally hit the pillow its 3am. The late night brings a late morning the next day. Or in my case I went to bed at 3 and woke up at 7 because Ella was ready for the day. I was so tired that I ended up taking a nap when she did. Which mad the idea of exercising for the day go out the window.

What I did do.

That doesn’t mean I didn’t do anything though. I am currently still drinking my only pop of the day. I drank half, put it in the fridge, then had a bottle of water. Not all of you know me personally but if you did you would know that is a feet in itself. I hate water so much that sometimes it makes me sick to my stomach. I even bought water infusers to drink more water last year, but then I got lazy and stopped…unfortunately.

What else did I do today? Well I weighed myself and took my initial measurements.

Just so you know I took these mostly myself  so they may not be 100% accurate but they are pretty dang close, also sorry if you don’t understand what they mean it seemed to of squished some of them close when I took the screen shot. (I did make a blank copy for anyone who would like their own.)

Now if you are wondering where I got these measurement ideas from I found this picture on google and thought it would be a good one to follow. AGAIN PLEASE NOTE I DID NOT MAKE THIS.

So here it is Day 1. I thank y’all for following my journey, and keeping me accountable. I am gonna post once a week of progress and failures, because everything has its ups and downs. I am gonna find days during the week to post about my other resolutions but Sundays are for this.

 

New Years Resolutions

Everyone has New Years Resolutions right?

Well here are some of mine and why its important.

  1. Become More Physically Healthy
    • Eat Better- Right now I eat like I don’t care. I have an issue drinking water and I know that is something needed every day.
    • Exercise more- I am always tired so I spend most of my time inside on the couch or playing with Ella. Unfortunately I don’t usually have the energy to play. I have heard that if you exercise more you get more energy so I am hoping that it will help
    • Loose a little weight- Before I had Ella I weighed about 115 now I weigh about 150 now that wouldn’t be bad if it was muscle weight but its definitely not so i’m hopefully gonna try to build muscle and loose fat what everyone hopes to do
  2. Become More Mentally Healthy
    • I have Depression and anxiety so this year I am going to try to do things for me. Every week take a mental health day to reflect on the week and to see what I can do to relieve stress, anxiety and depressive episodes
    • Start learning yoga and Meditation. I have downloaded apps and looked on pinterest to find good beginning yoga poses for well beginners.
  3. Become Financially Stable
    • This past year my husband lost his job. It took about 6 months to find another one so we fell behind on bills and such. It was hard, but this coming year I have a job and so does he 🙂
    • This year I want to be able to pay down debt. I am hoping to pay off everything that isn’t student loan debts and if we finish that at a decent time I am hoping to go full speed to pay those down.
    • Stick to a budget…. it is so hard to do that when your brain wants to be in 50 million places at once. So I am hoping to keep it straight and such I can do that right? YES I CAN (gotta start on positive side)
  4. Become More Organized
    • I am very organized in my head, not my thoughts but of how I can be organized. I have so many ideas to stay organized but when people come around and then mess things up I start feeling like a failure and give up. Well this year I am determined to not let that get to me and continue to be organized.
    • I will clean out/off my desk and continue to keep it clean all year. I will make that my space to organize my thoughts and such at the end of everyday to help with not becoming overwhelmed.

 

I may add more but right now this seems like a good starter.
