getting fit / losing weight / Motivation / new year resolutions

a girl and a guy's 365 day odyssey to find their way back home (to being fit and fabulous)

This is our first post. We find ourselves at the precipice of a new year carrying a “few” more pounds than last year. We are old pros at New Year resolutions. We renew our fitness goals each year, but what we want to do this year is figure out how to sustain our resolve to lose weight, get in shape, and stay fit. We have given this a lot of thought and we have come up with an answer…accountability. For the next 365 days we will account for ourselves and our actions in this blog. Good days and bad days. We will keep track of our journey – our odyssey to good health in 2010. If you have ever struggled to maintain your fitness goals, please join us. We would love to hear from you.

Day 1. We didn’t dare weigh today (why start off on a bad note), but we did go to the gym. Yay! 20 minutes on the stairclimber, 10 minutes on the rower, 15 minutes on the treadmill, and sit ups. It was a good first effort. Jimmy said we need to set goals. I think big…a half-marathon…a stair climb challenge. Jimmy says, “Let’s start by thinking about our goals in the gym. How many stairs do we want to climb each week, how many miles on the treadmill , what about weights?” We are thinking it over. What are your goals? Day 1 – done 🙂
