A Year without Posts!

Good morning from Beijing, China where the air is not great but the sun is shining.  Wordpress has sent me an email discussing my last year, but just looking at the date gives me some distress.  I haven’t posted in over a year.  (It is after all, January 2, 2016 here – although it is still the first in Calgary!)

I don’t have a weigh scale here, so I have no idea what I weigh at this point.  But I can share this with whoever needs some encouragement to change their physical habits!

You can change and adjust.  It isn’t easy.  It is hard.  Changing locations may change the availability of the food you love, but it is still there – and also easily replaced with other foods if you are not careful!

I did take some measurements and I’ve lost a few centimetres around my waist.  I’ve also taken in my jeans to keep them from falling off while I ride the subway. So while we may not be playing with numbers this year, I do intend to keep myself accountable in the following way:

I commit to posting here once a week to  be accountable for my exercising habits.  I will share some of the new things I’ve been doing since I got to Beijing, in the  hopes that they may encourage you to try different things.

Thanks for sticking with me!

About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking!
