What I’m Looking Forward to in Health and Fitness for 2012

Well I’m looking forward to a lot of things for 2012 but I’m going to stick to health and fitness for this blog and skip my personal life.  2011 was both good and bad though and I’m glad to see it go.  I had a friend die, my grandmother died (my last grandparent) and a former coworker died.  I did have a breakthrough in one area of my life though but I keep that private.

1.  My “new” barbell at home.  On Christmas day I was given a set of weight plates and then I went out and bought a bar.  Now I will have a barbell to do my gym style workouts at home.  A few of my DVDs use a barbell too.  Excited to be able to lift even heavier at home now!

2.  The first workout DVD review I will be doing is on Mike Donavanik’s Extreme Burn.  It’s an advanced level workout and I bet if I went and checked my mailbox right now it would be out there waiting for me!  It will be my first workout for the New Year and my review will soon follow.

3. Patrick Goudeau’s Extreme Calorie Burn.  I didn’t buy this yet but I soon will!  Toby Massenburg who I have reviewed on here is in it and on his Facebook page he mentioned it was the hardest workout DVD he has participated in.  Toby is in “sick” shape (in a good way) so I know if he thought it was hard it is going to be killer!  Looking forward to reviewing this one for sure!

4.  Writing.  I need to buckle down on my childhood obesity project.  I suffered from it as a child and in the last year there were many headlines about childhood obesity.  It breaks my heart that children are being taken away from their parents because of this epidemic and I feel that since I experienced it myself, I need to weigh in on this subject.  I think if you haven’t experienced it, you shouldn’t have a firm opinion.  Sorry, that’s just the way I feel.

5.  The gym.  Sooner or later I’m going to stop going to the gym.  I go now because I would miss the people I have met there.  Don’t gasp at the thought of skipping the gym.  I workout harder at home when I don’t have people watching what I am doing.  Women doing power moves and Olympic lifts is not that common at my gym and when I do them I get watched.  I’m a private person.  I don’t like it.  With my new equipment I’ll be able to workout harder at home.

6.  This blog. I will maintain and update this blog as I am able.  I will be getting a new tablet in a few days and I am excited to see how I can implement it with my workouts.  I think it will be easier to live stream online workouts on it rather than my laptop.  So I may weigh in on that as well.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012 everybody!  Thanks for reading my posts and stay tuned……

  1. Happy New Year!! You have some great goals for the new year!!! I hope this is a better year for you!!!

  2. Sweet! I love the home barbell idea! Did you know that BodyPump is being released onto DVD to be done at home? I think BeachBody will be selling them (I owe my 25lb weight loss last year to BodyPump classes at my gym). I hope you have a healthy 2012!

  3. Happy New Year and I wish you all the success you can handle and then some!

  4. I have been getting a few subtle and also a few not so subtle reminders that I have not written a blog for a long time.
