I know it’s been ages since I last graced the internet with my thoughts and opinions (though perhaps only to the sound of crickets), but now I’m back with a new set of goals and hopefully a better outlook on life.
It’s a big year for Matt and I as we are now ENGAGED! We have so much to plan and so much to save this year, that I’ve decided my focuses for 2013 are saving heaps and (not-so-surprisingly) devoting myself to fitness.
Exercise is basically my obsession, so that shouldn’t be too hard, but saving is a huge struggle for me. Matt is trying to help me get started since he is an excellent saver. I have condensed my two thoughts into easy sentences, which I will be posting to the bathroom mirror:
Sweat Once a Day Only If It’s Free
Lululemon, which is one of my favorite companies, encourages people to “sweat once a day” and I am adopting this as my mantra. Even on recovery days, I will try to go for walks or do yoga or pilates, just to keep up with a new routine of fitness everyday, no excuses.
Only if it’s free applies to time I spend with my friends. Apart from the occasional event requiring me to dole out a bit of cash, I’m trying to keep my catch-ups to taking walks, going for runs, having tea at home or other general activities where I can spend time with loved ones without breaking the bank.
I encourage others to join me in “Sweat Once a Day” and see how long it takes you to feel better and have more energy in your daily life. #sweatonceaday for those on Twitter. Let’s see how this goes…
