2014?? Hells ya!

Isn’t it cliche, January comes along and we all get all motivated to change things up and make great things happen. Well I think anything that motivates us to make positive change is a good thing. I had a lot of fun over the holidays and didn’t worry too much about health and fitness. It has been a bit of a bummer winter so far so I haven’t been able to get any skiing in yet. I also got snowshoes for Xmas but again, not much snow to enjoy them in yet, although I think one of the mountains has a decent amount on their trails so I will investigate.

I put on about 4 lbs over the holidays, but I regret nothing! I had a great time and life is too short to worry too much about these things. I know what I need to do to get back on track and I am looking forward to it. I have already been easing my way back into healthy habits and I will continue to build upon things, I mean really I will be building upon things the rest of my life, self improvement should never end. I was too tired for a gym workout this morning and I was considering going after work but I think things may be much too crowded so I am using today as a non-gym workout day. I did a bunch of calestenics in my office and will do at least one more set today. I ran up and down the stairs in my building then did a bunch of sets of various floor and other exercises. I think more people need to realize that there are many ways to get your fitness in other than going to the gym or even leaving the building. Variety is key though in making it work long term.

So my goals for January are:

  1. Drink more water/herbal tea/lemon water
  2. Workout every day at least 15 mins and 3 times a week for 30 mins or more
  3. Protein shakes daily
  4. Stay positive and have fun with my goals!

So that is what I need to do, I am going to make sure I make this happen, seems like reasonable goals to have and I know it will be worth my time.

Book Reviews – Wolves of the Calla, Song of Susannah, Dark Tower

So once I got past a certain point in the Dark Tower series there was no turning back. I read the last 3 books in a huge binge but it was glorious. So glorious in fact that I have been unable to get past it and move on to another book. I purchased “Wind Through the Keyhole” but I am not ready to go back to the world of the Dark Tower yet either.

So on to these reviews. I decided to compile them into one as I am not sure how much I will have to say about each one as they really do all fit together into a really long story. Of course although it doesn’t really need to be said, there will likely be spoilers so if you have not read the series and do not want to know about it then this is not the best place for you to be. Also my details might get all mixed up but that is the way things go sometimes.
