Workouts: 2 sessions with Trainer Matt
Well, Christmas is over and we're very close to New Years. I've spent the week cocooning, especially since it's been -50C outside!!! OK, not really, but it feels like it. Darn cold. Mittens-scarves-long-underwear cold! It's been a great time to curl up and decompress from a busy holiday season.
Golden Retriever Barbie has come for a sleep over and we just came back from a romp off-leash in the park. Disappointingly, there were no other doggies out today. We had to play by ourselves.

As Ess mentioned, it's been a time for reflection about the accomplishments and disappointments of 2011. I'm very pleased with my year. I joined a new club - fabulous 50 year olds! I took off the 10 pounds I gained over the summer and tried a few new health experiments along the way. Except for feeling a little chubby from the holiday indulgences, I feel healthy, have slept lots, and have enjoyed the company of my wonderful sisters, nieces and Mom.
Now it's time to set some goals for 2012. Have you set some goals/resolutions? Which term has a more positive spin to you? While I have some financial goals, a need for greater balance, and hopes for a cleaner house this year (ya, right), my major focus is once again on health and fitness.
I've signed up for a session with Peak Performance for a body composition test and a resting metabolic rate assessment at the Ottawa Heart Institute on Saturday, January 14. It's inexpensive, and I think it's good way to begin the next phase of the Mission!
We'll be picking a starting day very soon to begin the next stage....stay tuned!
