Resolutions Update 1

I don't know about you, but I often find the best way to keep a plan going is to tell a few people it's happening. So I'm going to try and keep ye olde resolutions to the front by embarrassing myself every month with an update.

The sports/health resolutions were:
    * Keeping back injuries at bay with clinical pilates
    * Working on the base I've built-up to start running again
    * Keeping respiratory illnesses at bay and getting back in the water
    * Doing a multi-day walk in Ireland
    * Climbing a mountain - any mountain but no roads allowed 

 - My back is going well, big relief there and all down to clinical pilates. Deceptively simple but successful.
 - Two and three were a wipe-out thanks to the wonders of the damp climate here - hated by my lungs 
 - The walk is definitely a summer plan!
- Well, not a mountain but we did take a bus to the top of Howth Hill (pictured) and walk down. Not much but definitely an improvement on a few months ago.

How're you doing with your New Year resolutions??

Howth Hill looks pretty - it must have been a lovely walk :)

Great to hear about your resolutions being on track. It definitely helps staying on track when they are made public :)

It is beautiful. I dont know about on track exactly but trying to make small steps seem bigger is almost the same thing! How're you getting on with yours?

I'm wondering what I was thinking when I made some of my resolutions! I could use a few extra hours in the day to get everything done :)

Motivation is waning with a few things but I think that's normal at this time of year.

I saw that post on your blog - it is almost impossible to be motivated for running in rainy, slushy snow. This is why I keep looking at snowboarders - that's how to survive the winter! when you have enough snow which we don't in Ireland, just stuck in the middle ;(
