One couple on a mission to become healthy

New Year Resolutions

Leave a comment


Above is what our fridge looks like right now. Our soups for the week are nicely portioned out in individual mason jars and my salad stuff is ready to go for the week.

A trap I’ve fallen into nearly every January 1st of my life is declaring that I wanted to lose X-amount of pounds in the following year or saying I wanted to wear shorts without embarrassment by summer… the list is endless. But in 2012 I didn’t make these broad sweeping resolutions.

Nathaniel and I decided to get healthy together, cut calories to lose about 2.5 pounds a week and started running. My initial running efforts were modest with the couch-to-5k running program and in December I ran a half marathon (13.1 miles).

I still have another 20 pounds to lose but I am feeling really confidant going into 2013.

If you have big goals for yourself in 2013 I encourage you to break them up in to manageable pieces and chip away at them.

My goal for this week? Run more than 15 miles and stick to my food plan.
