Resolutions Update and Social Media

This is what I wrote down for my beginning list of 2009 resolutions:

  • Exercise 6 times per week, including a Masters Swim on Tuesday/Thursday.
  • Go Vegetarian 2 times per week (Tuesday and Thursday would be easiest)
  • Minimum Athena weight by the time Lifetime Fitness Triathlon rolls around (July 11th)
  • Breath deeply
  • Save money.

Let's see where I am in relationship to these lofty goals as of January EIGHTH, 2009:

Exercise: Four days: ran a 10K; another 2.3 miles another day; lifted weights once; swam once; walked briskly and rode a stationary bike once. So I did six things, not six days....AND the Masters swim happens at 5:30 in the A. wtf M which should count for extra credit.
  • Rational: not yet in "training" Reality: It is freezing cold here and I've been woozy (really).

Vegetarian: So far, so good.

  • Rational: it is pretty easy. Reality: It's only been ONE Tuesday and One Thursday. Also, chocolate does not contain any meat by-products (I hope).

Minimum Athena: I have't gotten on a scale in months. I'm petrified.

  • Rational: I'm petrified. Reality: July is a long time away and I need to just face the number.

Breath deeply. Every day. No rational or reality comment needed.

Save Money: I think spending less counts too, yes?

I've become sort of a Social Media junkie, getting in to Facebook and Linkedin...A couple of my bloggie friends are into this too (Steve and Tri to be Funny).

Anyone else?

You are on your way with your goals. It is tough to change everything in 1 week.

I love facebook!! Way too easy to keep in touch! :-) Great goals...know how you feel about the swim thing. Mornings are not easy, but I prefer am to pm because I tend to come up with any excuse NOT to go!
