Watulan Fierce Deities of 2021! All are welcome!!

This is a spin-off of the Cathe Chronological Rotation thread from here, just for history: But alas, we decided it's time for us to start a new thread to check in with, and we Watulans like new friends! All are welcome here for sharing support and motivation. Oh, and enabling.

So how fierce will you be in 2021? Let's do this!

Happy New Year!!! We stayed pretty quiet this year too. My daughter made an ice cream cake and we had some homemade nachos while watching Dick Clarkís Rockin NYE. We did do a drive-by birthday celebration at midnight for my nephew who turned 16. Horns, pots and pans and all. Iím sure the neighbors loved us

I just have to say for those who have husbands that can buy them clothes, Lucky you! Itís become a running little side joke between my daughter and I of what my husband will pick out for me every year. My husband and I have been together 23 years, but he definitely does not buy to my taste. My daughter will usually try to steer him in the right direction. Every once in a while sheíll whisper that I didnít have anything to do with this. Ha ha. I feel terrible but itís stuff I will never wear. Usually I tell him it doesnít fit right. Itís pretty funny because I seriously dress so basic. Tees, sweatshirts, leggings, jeans, etc. and mostly from Target or Walmart. Occasionally Kohlís or Amazon. Itís the thought that counts.

As for workouts, the end of the year was pretty light. I had several doctors appointments. Not to get into too many details but I was having some symptoms that were concerning. Thankfully my colonoscopy came back negative. I also caught up on my other yearly appointments with my gyn and thyroid doctors. Fun stuff, but glad itís done.

I did finish the year with Yvette Bachmanís Holiday Hiit Workout. This time I mixed things up and did it on my mini trampoline.

I may join others with Viper if thatís the Fun Friday workout. It would be a good start to the new year. I can do a longer workout today since my family is off to entertain Winston.

Good for those who do not have a dread factor with CCC. I find that one tough stuff!

Any resolutions? I need to get back to healthy choices. Iím usually pretty good but not since COVID. Definitely stress eating. My main goal for this year is more mindfulness. I will probably download an app to get started. Recommendations???

Looking forward to 2021 with you ladies. You are all very inspirational!

kittybug Thanks for the new thread! I hope even more folks decide that they wanna join in

ChelePA I am happy to read you are ok. Good to see you! As far as resolutions, I don't do them! Instead I do a word for the year that helps me guide my goals, habits and lifestyle. This year my word is Resilience. If you wanted to adopt one, I'd suggest mindfulness...from your own post

Started the year low key but fun! JS total stretch deep stretch and Beach pilates plus tai chi with Carol; then JS high energy walk. Thanks Kim for my workout today

Happy New Year Morning to all!!

ETA: love the word choices kittybug and manley. Manley, you should add yours to your sig like me and kittybug so you won't forget!
Don't just work hard, work smart....Pat Head Summitt

Never give up on your body!-- Miranda Esmonde-White

Glad you see everyone in our new location.

ChelePA that drive-by midnight birthday celebration sounds crazy. You're right, the neighbors may have been cursing you! Hopefully everyone was up anyway given it was New Year's Eve. I'm very glad to hear your colonoscopy was ok. I hope your symptoms resolve too. I'm not sure what you're dealing with but several years ago I had some issues that lasted for almost a year although my colonoscopy and all other tests were negative. It was a relief to know my tests were negative, but I just had to adjust my lifestyle to deal with the symptoms. It was a pain in the butt (hahaha, no pun intended) but gradually it went away on its own.

My workout for today was Charlene Prickett A Firm Commitment. It's moderate weight work and it's an oldie but goodie from 1991. I'm currently doing a project of dubbing some Charlene Prickett VHS to DVD for another VFer so I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone and actually do some of the workouts as they record to DVD.

I don't do resolutions either but I generally think more about my food choices as I typically overindulge during the holidays and start to feel guilty and gross.

Have a great day everyone!

Happy New Year, Watulans!!

Chele, I agree.... your evening sounded very fun and festive (given lockdown). That's funny about your husband's gift choices and your daughter. And I'm glad to know you had negative test results at the doctor! Hope you are feeling better.

I also don't really do resolutions. We have an "accomplishments jar" in our family -- started when the boys were little. It's a big jar and all year long whenever anyone accomplishes something (easier to fill that jar with young kids!) we put it on a post it in the jar. On New Year's Day we read them aloud and then I put them in an envelope for that person with the year written on the envelope. Those envelopes came in handy when they were doing college apps. At any rate, we keep up the tradition, but certainly in 2020 it's a light jar. I have a 2020 calendar I thought we could burn as part of the reading of the jar. A symbolic ending to 2020.

That said, I tend to clean up my eating at the start of every year -- mostly because I'm really done with over indulging. I'm definitely game to get back on that train today.

For my Fun Friday I did Step Blast -- I think this is my all time favorite Cathe cardio. It was my first step workout so it's got a special place in my heart.

Kittybug, thanks for a great start to our new check in location!! Waves to all.
