My Resolution for 2012: The Year of Fitness

In 2012, I've decided to take up and carry out a resolution - arguably the most over-resolved resolution ever: to be more fit/healthy in 2012.

How will I carry this out?

I'll be following weightlifting workouts prescribed in The New Rules of Lifting. In addition to this, I'll be doing light amounts of running intervals on my off-days.

To support this (relatively) high level of physical activity, I'll be supplementing with Dymatize's Elite Gourmet Protein, eating relatively healthy, and following the Mobility WOD's provided by Kelly Starrett.

The key here is to establish the habit of healthiness. That means:
  • Being active every day.
  • Eating healthy.
  • Sticking with it, day in and day out.
I've tried to do as much homework and preparation in advance as possible, so all I have to do when Monday comes is to just live it. I know I can't possibly prepare for an entire year of fitness in advance, but I'm doing the best I can. I'll check in weekly here on the blog to help myself along.

 Happy New Year!

Radio Silence?

This is a huge guilt post - I haven't posted a single thing in the entire month of December!

This is due to a few things:
- Crazy end-of-the-year schedule: finals, bowl game trip (Poinsettia Bowl this time, against Louisiana Tech - we won it!), and a Christmas trip out to Florida with family.
- Chores and errands galore
- Getting ready to hit the ground running on my New Year's Resolution... More on that coming tomorrow!

If you're reading this, I really hope you stick with me. I plan to make next year a more interesting one, both on and off this blog.
