New Year's Resolution

In order to accomplish my New Year's Resolution I vowed to do the following things:
  • Get out of bed at 5am to do a Jillian Michael's strength workout each day
  • Write down what I eat and consume less than 1100 calories before dinner
  • Not drink any wine or liquor
  • Not snack after work

Well this was going great until Friday when I got laid off. I was suppose to go for an hour long run at lunch and I eventually went for a run but only 2 miles - I just was not feeling up to it and I did not do any running this weekend.

But today is a new week and I am starting it up again. I lost 2.5 pounds last week but my weight varies from 144 to 141.5 so it was not a big shock.

This week and I once again writing down what I eat and planning my food for the day and I also plan to get a lot of working out in, since I have no job why not exercise!

I have to admit though my arms are sore. We went to the rec center with the girls yesterday and I decided to do some rock climbing. I only climb for about 15 minutes but I sore! Well - off to my strength workout.
