Being true to my blogging form I haven't posted in over a month!
So this is a catch up post and a bit of a commitment record for both January and 2013!
I can't say I had a great Christmas, nor can I say I had a bad one! For the most part Christmas isn't really my thing, but all the other family members seemed to enjoy it and that is enough for me!
I didn't get all the presents completed, but didn't really need to in the end either! I do have to finish one, but thankfully, my Sister in Law is forgiving!
On to New Year and we had a quiet family night watching some TV shows. The youngest only made it to 11pm, but it is just a late night for her anyway as she doesn't get it yet!
Linking up with Fitness Friday over at Mountains and Musings
My yearly commitments come in here! I am participating in OperationMOVE over at Kate Says Stuff again this month after my complete failure in December!
My commitment is to reach 700 minutes for the month, with a secondary goal of losing 1kg per week, and a Primary goal for the year to try and reach 80kg before the end of it all!
This is a big Target for me, I started the year at 107.9kg, and am currently 107.3kg... so not really enough of a drop! However to maintain it is what will be hard!
I have a condition called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, which in my case means that I have higher levels of 'male' hormones than the average woman, it caused me some fertility problems about 7 years ago which were (luckily) easily reversed by losing some weight. It means I will always struggle to lose weight and will put on weight easier than women without the condition. But if I do lose the weight, the condition lessens in severity, so I have been told!
Anyway, excuses aside. This month I have done 270 of my 700 minutes, and also spent a lot of time in the water swimming and mucking around while I was camping.
I am home now and in desperate need of new running/walking shoes, so I can get stuck in to the treadmill again.
Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!
