Keeping my promises

With just over a week left of January, I have to say I am feeling pretty good about things.

I have been keeping my ‘new year promises’ to myself so far….

1. I have instigated the ‘jar of good stuff’ promise, utilising a bit of potential “tat” I saved from the bin; a Jubilee special edition Lyle’s golden syrup tin which I was SURE I could find a use for… and I did.  I think the wording on this is quite appropriate for its new task.20130122-212603.jpg

2. I am heading off today on the first of my ‘do exciting/fun things’ trips.  A few days in Bath (or ‘the Bath’ as it was in the last book I read) with a good friend, seeing Les Mis and possibly heading to the Baths… If the weather could provide a sprinkling of settled snow shortly before we take a dip in the rooftop pool, that would be great.

3.  I am still doing well with Weight Watchers; I did a cheeky mid-week weigh to help bolster my resolve to eat ‘wisely and not too well’ during my time away and I’ve lost another pound (lb).  This takes me below a certain figure which I haven’t been below for a while, which makes me happy.

Now I must get back to work and finish packing before catching a train up to ‘the Bath’.

Resolutions

A bit late in getting these blogged but here goes…

* to wear my pedometer every day and aim to be up to 10000 steps a day by the end of March (and then sustain it)
* to continue with my Pilates classes once a week and add in a session with my Pilates or workout DVD once a week
* to take the dog for one long walk (for an hour or two) once a week
* to eat healthily & sensibly
