Be interested to hear some New Years resolutions. Here’s mine:
Write more stuff down for one and a half months. That is, do a detailed, daily write up (on the computer, not a form) of exercise and food and drink…in an effort to a) try out a much more plant-based diet…see what’s possible for me, b) maybe lose as much as ten pounds and c) strengthen the core and the smaller muscle groups that protect the hip…the rotator cuff and so on. Also, get better on the dreary STRETCH. Joints are an increasingly scary problem area as one gets to my age and I want to fight back…hard. I think that strengthening the core AND the little muscles (not so little actually…just short) that hold the joints together will help.
One effort that may or may not survive the first week: write down a plan for the next day at the end of every day…and (the next day) write down how i did. That means two trips to the computer on this stuff every day, which may be too much of a bother. But I am doing all this without a trainer, up here in the hills; it is SO hard to do resolutions without feedback. So this writing plan is to be a sort of Self-Feedback. We’ll see.
There’s mine. Show me yours. C
Here it is June 2012.
How is your writing plan coming along?
I think many people are afraid to make resolutions because they know it will become dust in the wind.
My resolution has been laying dormant until now, and the only reason I can speak of it is because I’m ready to follow through.
Thanks in part to your encouragement via your YNY books and website,
I resolve to get FIT. Everything else will fall into place from there.
My plan is to check-in everyday at your website, connect with friends there, post in my journal at Rock The Ages to record my progress, eat more veggies & fruit, cut out junk food, and do something strenuous daily!
By December I will have replaced fat with muscle.
That’s it “in a nutshell.”
