Fitness Friday: Redux

I’m back! In the whole healthy-eating, getting fit thing, I mean. Like so many other times, I stopped for a bit, and now I’m picking it back up. I’m okay with that.

The good news is that I’ve only gained back about 4 pounds of the 15 or so I lost starting last March. That’s pretty huge progress for me since I’m really good at re-gaining lost weight. I’ve also gained back about five inches total, but they are fairly spread out, so I’m good with that too.

I’m still working on getting the family to a mostly-meat free, plant-based, whole-foods menu. It’s slow going, but worth it. You can read about my other goals for 2013 in my last post, The Year of Taking Care. That is what I’ve dubbed 2013, The Year of Taking Care.

One big way I’m working on the healthier living thing is by taking Cathy Zielske’s Move More, Eat Well class through Big Picture Classes. It’s low-pressure, but still an accountability system. And it’s scrapbooking!

For the class, we needed to take a “before” picture. So I did (with a photo bomb from Lemmon). And then Tobin and Nicholas had to take one too. So here we are at the beginning of 2013, hoping to see much less of me this time next year!


Do you have fitness or health goals for 2013? I would love to hear what you’re doing!

  1. Haha, they are so cute. I hear you about taking breaks and getting back to it. I have to do that sometimes, just to stay sane (especially with the food I eat, and the “diets”). I also love that it’s the Year of Taking Care. I need to be right there with you!

  2. Can I be a fitness buddy too? I made lots of progress last year but have been really slacking lately ESP with exercise. I am ok with it but am ready to get back on track.

  3. Love the year of Taking Care – it’s perfect!

    And I hear you on the back and forth – we’re learning how to maintain, right?

    Cheering you on from here, and Happy New Year!!
