Goodbye, 2012

I have high hopes for 2013.  2012 was ok - I racked up 24 credits for advancement on the salary scale and agreed to co-sponsor my school's Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science and...well that's about it. I gained 5 pounds, lost 4 pounds , gained it back. I watched a lot of TV and read a few books. I gave my dog a lot of kisses, and gave my husband a few too (way less than the dog).

  You'd kiss him a ridiculous amount too, right?

Maybe I should set some reasonable goals for 2013 so I can look back next year at this time and feel proud rather than "meh" like I do right now.

Christina's List of Reasonable Goals to Be Conquered in 2013
1. Move into our new home (this has much less to do with me and much more to do with a lot of factors I have little control over, but it is the main thing I hope happens this year, so it stays).
2. Lose 17 pounds to reach 115 (Maybe I should set smaller hurdles? I will weight 127 by 2/15, 122 by 4/15, 117 by 6/15, and then the last 2 by 7/15. Then I will MAINTAIN).
3. I will achieve Goal #2 by exercising at least 30 minutes a day 4x a week (or 45 minutes a day 3x a week) and eating more fruits and vegetables and less CRAP.
4. Finish my credits for salary advancement (12 by March, the remaining 24 by October)

I think that'll do. In other goals, I started doing the Couch to 5K program because Insanity is too hard right now and I need to get in better shape so I don't hurt myself. It was really freaking cold yesterday (windchills in the 20's!) but I bundled up and did Day 1. You're only supposed to have to run 3x a week and the program will have you ready to run a 5k in 9 weeks. That puts me right around early March. I tried finding a 5K to register for so I had some accountability built in but there aren't any yet. I'll have to check back. I'm thinking I'll do Day 2 today, Day 3 tomorrow, and maybe do more than my 3 days for Week 1 since it's pretty easy right now (60 seconds run, 90 seconds walk). I downloaded a podcast that tells me when to run/walk so I don't have to think too much.

One last thing. I got a Wawa hoagie for lunch. I tried to be healthy. Whole wheat roll, spicy mustard, avocado, spinach, and tomato turn into a goopy mess and sit heavy in your stomach. Do not make this mistake.

Happy New Year!
