New Years Priorities: Update #1.

My number priority for 2013 is my health and fitness. This week I haven't had much, if any, luck with the fitness (I have good reasons), but I have been starting to change what I consume. A little less coca cola, and a little more water, juice and milk. One step at a time, right?!

On Tuesday I went to the Chiropractor and it was messy. My poor bones did not take well to the cold, cold temperatures in Alberta, the awkward sleeping positions (I had a mole removed on my left side just prior to leaving, big mistake because it hurt for 2 weeks and I couldn't sleep on my left side), or all the sneezing from my allergies; and they especially did not take well to the heavy luggage I carried to/from the airport. Once he fixed me all up, I immediately felt better. Unfortunately, by the evening, my muscles were angry. They still are angry and I have had these horrible headaches ever since. 

I had full intentions to start 10 minutes of cardio each day this week, but I thought I better let my body rest so (a) I don't undo what the Chiropractor did and (b) I really don't want to aggravate my muscles any more. Because of my neuralgia in my face, if the muscles in my neck/shoulders become irritated, etc, the neuralgia flairs up. To help motivate myself for next week, I bought myself two new work-out t-shirts from Winners. Both Puma and both bright colors! 

As far as my second priority goes, I bought a new book that I am looking forward to reading... The Happiness Project! I have heard a lot of great things about this book, so I am quite hopeful that it will be a great start to being more positive (and happy!). 

How are your New Years Resolutions/Goals/Priorities coming along?


  1. Hi, I am popping over from the Aloha Blog Hop. I tried to start this year with a Vision for 2013 rather than resolutions but I confess it too is health and fitness. Cut down alcohol and dessert for me. I love personal development books and this one looks like a good read too. :) Lisa

  2. Found you via the Aloha blog post. My resolutions are slow but steady. I'm an optimist, though, so naturally I think it's going swimmingly.

  3. I'm doing pretty well with my goals so far. For only a week in, I'd say you've still got plenty of time to gain ground with your cardio.

  4. It's hard to tell how I'm doing with my goals because they aren't very specific, which I did on purpose. But, in my opinion, I'm on my way to not failing this time. Also The Happiness Project is a great inspiring book! I'm almost done with it finally! -Jessica L
