Day 251: One Day More to 2013

Here it is, friends and followers. The final day of 2012!

I know it's been a very long time since my last post, and I need to be held accountable for that. Yes, December is one of the busiest and most distractible months of the year, and I have semi-fallen off the fitness wagon.

I've still been working out with the Jillian Michaels YouTube vids about 3 times per week, but my intake has gone to the bad with all the holiday goodies that have been made available over the past several weeks.

The decline of my discipline began when my mom was in the hospital in October. Stress, fatigue, laziness... Pile that before the holidays started, and I was sure to falter. Falter, but NOT fail.

Strangely enough, despite all this, I have been able to maintain an average weight of 135.2 lbs over the past 2 months. I'm thankful that the numbers haven't gone up any more than that, but I also know that I've probably lost some muscle mass since my biking has pretty much ceased during the winter.

My goal is to eventually lose 10 to 15 more pounds.
I mustn't let this slip get any bigger!

I know it's super cliche' to have a New Year weight loss resolution, but I do intend to behave more once the new year begins. I honestly look forward to warmer weather and to March 10th when Daylight Savings Time returns!! 

2012 was full of ups and downs, just like any other year. It's up to us to look back on those memories and realize what we learned from all of them. Be proud of the progress you make, even if it's just a little.

I wish you all a Happy and prosperous New Year! Here's hoping that 2013 has much love, happiness, and progress for all of us. Thank you ALL for your support over the past 251 days! I can't wait to see what else lies in store for me in this journey.
