Work out every day from Thanksgiving to New Years. Fail. I did work out 34 out of 40 days, I ran 139.5 miles and worked out for 30.5 hours. So that’s still pretty good in my opinion.
Bring lunch to work every day. Done! I only work in the office 3 days/week (and from home 2 days/week), so it wasn’t as hard as if I work in the office every weekday. But still, it is a vast improvement over my previous habit of buying lunch pretty much everyday.
No frivolous spending. (By my own definition of “frivolous”.) I’m going to count this as “done.” There were a couple things I bought that were frivolous (a neck warmer and nail polish), but combined they were under $10, so this is a vast improvement over previous habits of going crazy buying stuff just because it’s cheap. (Target and Groopdealz.com were my biggest weaknesses.)
Check out Piloxing at the gym. This class has been on the group fitness schedule for awhile, and I’ve wanted to check it out, but it conflicted with my usual Thursday night group run. The class has moved to Tuesdays, so now it doesn’t conflict with any group runs or other classes that I like.
Did you have a good New Years Eve? We went to a dinner party with friends. It included delicious food & wine pairings. Wow … I’m old.
