Get that food out of my sight! If I ever see a piece of chocolate again, I will literally scream and run in the opposite direction. Christmas was fun, enjoyable but I feel like I have gained about 500 pounds in the last few days. As much as I love the holiday period, I'm glad it's over for another year just so I can finally go back to having a normal routine again. I've missed that these past few
I know I'll probably sound like a broken record but it's been a tough few months for me regarding motivation. I'm finding it really hard to motivate myself to get back into the shape I was in pre-Mexico. I know I've struggled with motivation for at least a good year now but my holiday to Mexico was the only thing that really kept me going. Now that's gone, I'm finding it even harder to motivate myself. What's worse, a few weeks ago my gym closed down, so now I am having to find new ways to get fit. Argh! I'm just going to have to dig in deep, keep doing what I can and push myself until I break through this brick wall I seem to be facing all too often. I know I can do it. I've done it before. It's just very frustrating.
I'm hoping 2013 will be a fresh chance for me to set some new goals as well as to finally complete the 15 million step challenge, which I set nearly 2 years ago. Over the next few days, I'm going to sit down and have a good long think about what goals I will set myself. If you have any suggestions or challenges, please let me know!
15 Million Steps Challenge Update
Since I last posted an update mid-October, I have taken 794,632 more steps, which means my current steps total is: 11,428,273.
I can't believe I've taken over 11 million steps. I can't believe I'm still doing this challenge!! Any sane person would have given up a long, long time ago. I'd like to say I'm nearing the finishing line but there are still over 3.5 million steps to go! Based on an average of 10,000 steps a day, it means I should be completed in just under a year. Well forget that, I'm not waiting a year. I'm too impatient! I'm going to continue to kick ass with my steps on a daily basis and one of my 2013 goals will be to set myself a much earlier date to finally complete my steps challenge once and for all.
11,428,273 steps taken, 3,571,727 steps to go!
How about you...
Did you have a good Christmas? What goals are you setting yourself for 2013?
PS - I am SO behind on reading blogs at the moment. Please forgive me. I am slowly catching up! I probably won't have time to leave a comment in all of them but I will read them all. I always do...especially when I'm at work! ;)
