Happy New Year!


So now that the New Year’s celebrations have come and gone, I started to think about putting together a list of “resolutions” for my blog. (My overall resolution is still TBD)

Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

1. Post more! I completed that #31WriteNow, in August, and then completely fell off the posting wagon. So shameful, especially since I had plenty to say. Many a time, I said “I should blog about that…” but didn’t. I’ll be better in 2014! I promise!

2. I said I was working on an updated set to my Couch to 5k podcasts, which I fully intended to create and share last year. I didn’t even get started. But I will do that this summer, so that everyone (myself included) can use it once Spring comes along.

3. Find a new theme. This one cool for like a minute, then I saw a bunch of other blogs using it as well. I typically try to use a theme that not a lot of others are, so I’m going to work a little harder to give my blog a more unique look; even if it’s a premium theme.

4. Share more updates on my fitness journey. I fell into a fall slump last year. With my father being ill, and myself keeping such strange hours, I put my workouts aside. I’ll be officially back on Monday!

5. More makeup reviews. With the way I hoard makeup, I should be talking more about it. And not just when I resist the urge to buy things from bareMinerals’ QVC shows. I’m not beauty expert, or beauty blogger, but I know what I like. I plan to share!

I think that’s it for now. If I think of other things, y’all will know!

Starting 2011 With A New Fitness Challenge: P90x

Last year, my fitness journey included Turbo Jam, Couch to 5k training, ChaLEAN Extreme, and TurboFire. And, I’ve been hinting at it for a while, but I am now officially committing to P90x to start off my 2011 Fitness Journey.

I was debating starting the year with a modified round of TurboFire + ChaLEAN Extreme, and hit up P90x after that. But I decided to stop delaying things and take the plunge, so that’s what I’m starting today. My commitment should be applauded even more because today’s my birthday!

I expect P90x to be a challenge both physically and mentally. I’ve mentioned before how much my attention span sucks, and that was the driving force behind my constant delaying in doing the program. I don’t know what it is, but after about 45-50 minutes, I subconsciously become extremely aware that I’ve been working out a while. I then worry about my focus/form for the remainder of the workout.

TurboFire has a few workouts that I thought would push my attention span, but it turned out to not be an issue! The workouts are so fun that I didn’t even notice how long I had been working out! I hope Tony Horton will be able to do the same for me because I’m a little worried! I’m sure, after a few days/weeks, it’ll become second nature, but until that happens, I hope it’s not that large of a hurdle.

So, who else is starting a new fitness routine today? ‘Tis the season! And, if you’re making plans to start a program (like P90x), why not sign-up a become a Beachbody coach? Sign-up is free for 1 more week, you’ll get your program at a 25% discount, and be able to set up an online shop from which others can buy fitness videos & accessories. This is the time of year where you can really make a difference and help others along their journey, as you start/continue your own! To be able to do all that while making money on the side makes it that much sweeter! Think about it, and if you have any questions, hit me up!
