Fitness Resolutions

Fitness resolutions for nightmare! I say I am going to run every year around this time and then I'll motivate again at other random points in the year... but I have yet to be consistent.  Sidenote: I live at the beach. I am 2 blocks from a nice path along the ocean in southern California where the weather is usually nice (because let's be honest, if it is raining I am not going outside for exercise) So what is my excuse?

Deedee Wills is hosting today's linky party and upon reading her post I have become inspired.

Just 3 minutes ago I registered for the Los Angeles 5K Color Run on February 2nd. Have you heard of the Color Run? I like it because the main idea is FUN! I may not like running, but I love fun! And even I think I can tackle a 5K in one month's time. Click {here} to see if there is a Color Run in your area...and in no way do I work for them- just sharing it because it is fun. (I've never run in it- just watched.)

But the next race needs to be a 10K. I've done one before...but it was a few years ago. Since then I registered for a half marathon and then thanks... maybe next year. There is a Valentine's Day 10K on Coronado Island...the actual race is on the 17th, but I wonder if Valentine's Day is a time for running?  Or perhaps a Hollywood 10K on April 6.........we'll see.

My other fitness related goal is to GO TO BED on time. If I go to sleep at a decent hour, in theory, I should be better able to wake up early to get in that morning work out. I am often up late doing random not-time-pressing things on the computer.

My last goal is to drink more water. It is good for my health, my skin and I never drink enough. I especially need to be hydrated if I am going to be running more.

Go to Deedee's blog to link up and to see some cool apps for fitness and ideas to put fitness in your classroom.  I hope you have a healthy and fit 2013!
