Yes it’s cold

Like really, really cold! It was 4 degrees this morning at my house, with a windchill of like -15! But the bright side of the wind chill (making it below zero), no ice on the windshield! I am so not a fan of scraping ice off the windshield. I love my SUV but dang it’s hard to get to the middle of that windshield since I am shorty. Although one of my Christmas presents to me was a remote start in my car, which I am loving yet struggling with because it uses my gas when I am not going anywhere, thereby making my gas mileage worse. That I guess is a small price to pay for warmth, right?!?

So it’s a new year, and it always makes me thing of the weight watchers commercials New Year, New You. Well you know what I like me, and I don’t need a new me. I could make some improvements, sure, but I don’t need an entirely new me for 2014. I am happy with my life and of course a bit more discipline would be great for the new year, but an entirely new person is not necessary. I did purchase one of my favorite gadgets again, the FitBit.  I went with the FitBit Zip this time around instead of the FitBit One or Flex since I don’t like to use it when I sleep.

As I contemplate the new year I am thinking what my goals for 2014 will be. Yes I know I said the same thing in the last post so perhaps it’s time to get going. One thing I am committing to for January is a plank challenge (because you  know you can do a plank pretty much anywhere). Below is the plank list:
