Resolution Update - Jan 2010

Resolution Update January
It has been valuable this month to start thinking about goals, routines and plans in preparation for going back to work. I have been using January as a transition month, to start getting more active.

Write Daily
Whilst I haven't blogged on lj each day, I have been twittering and done some writing in my moleskin. I remind myself that writing helps me to make sense of life and to quieten my brain down. I need to try and do this daily, remembering that even 140 characters on twitter is more than enough. I like having a snapshot of my month in twitters. Writing does not need to be long and complex. Quick and snappy is good!

Exercise Daily
Have been doing well on this - enjoying using my wii balance board, clocking up the time, earning calories, learning to find my centre of gravity. I have also been using Davina's post natal exercise dvd - which is a moderate 40 minutes. In time I will graduate to her harder DVDs. I think that I will be doing more walking in February, taking Markus too and from the nursery.

Maintain food and activity diary
On my Wii I have been logging my Wii activity, other activities, my steps etc. Overall I have seen a very small weight loss in a month (1.3kg). I have not yet been logging my calorie intake, since I am still breastfeeding, but have been trying to eat more sensibly.

Although I am a bit discouraged that my weight loss is so small, I am pleased that I have fitted some exercise into each day. And I remember the following quote:
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle
