I realized today is my 6 month blog-versary! Wo-hoo! I don’t have any champagne but I do have iced coffee!
When I started HFM 6 months ago, it was the end of 2011. Perfect time for New Year’s Resolutions and to start the year off with big goals. Here are the goals I made for 2012 back then. I’ve accomplished quite of few of them but I’ve been slacking on others(Reading a book a month? That happened twice). I think I just lost interest maybe? I even stopped tracking my progress at the end of the month. I decided I needed to make new goals for the remaining 6 months of 2012(that just made me really sick to write that, by the way).
Mid Year Re-evaluation Goals for 2012
- Finish Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon – no time expectations! I just want to finish in one piece.
- Date nights – Ron and I have never hired a babysitter for the kids. I think it’s time. We need some alone time away from the house. I’d be happy if we had a date night at least 1 time in the next 6 months!
- Unplug and Be Present – Step away from the computer and phone while I’m with my family. Real life is way better. I like this Mama’s idea of setting office hours.
- Go on a REAL vacation. I’m not talking stay-cation or taking time off from work because relatives are visiting. I’m talking the real deal. I feel like I haven’t gone anywhere in the past 2 years.
The “Don’t Stop” Workout
While I was putting together this workout I thought of Anna Kournikova when she was a trainer on the “Biggest Loser.” Her favorite motivational phrase was “Don’t stop! Keep going! C’mon!” It was the same every single week and for every contestant. So that’s where the title for this lovely total body workout came about. It’s a killer that will have you repeating Anna’s phrase for the entire 30 minutes!
*Before you begin, as with any workout, make sure to do a proper warm up of at least 5-10 minutes of light activity to get the blood flowing and slowly increase your heart rate. Cool down after completing the workout with stretches for all the major muscle groups. Click HERE for some of my favorite stretches.
