2012 GOALS AND RESOLUTIONS
A while back I posted about my fitness goals for 2012, after baby arrives and I get the green light from my doctor. You can read the original post here, but I'll summarize it for you, too.
1- Run a 5K under 30 minutes. This is a 2011 goal that needs to be revisited.
2-Sign up for a longer race. I would like to run anything longer than a 5K (looking at some fun half-marathons right now!), but with no expectations. No finishing times, no split goals, nada. I just want to run and participate.
A new goal for 2012? Clean up my eating habits!
Since being diagnosed with GD, I've had to watch my carbohydrate intake and follow a meal plan. Confession? I've been following the meal plan but not by being as healthy as I should be.
Example? I'm allowed 3 servings of carbs for lunch/dinner. 1 serving = 15 grams of carbohydrates. You know what has 3 servings of carbohydrates (45g)? 1 Beef Supreme Chalupa and 1 Beef Taco from Taco Bell. YUP. Even with GD I have found a way to eat junk.
Even worse? I've been losing weight since being on the GD diet. Now, it's not bad to lose weight during pregnancy- as long as baby is growing. What's bad about losing weight is that I can still eat crap "within my limits" and lose weight. It's a false security.
So for 2012 I want to limit the amount of junk food I eat. I should start building my collection of healthy recipes now, right? The only issue is that recipes sometimes intimidate me- they either take too long or get too messy. Ugh, just something I need to get over and really look into simple, quick, realistic recipes.
I've asked this before but- What are your goals/resolutions for 2012?
