Over at the Diet Pulpit, Lady Rose has posted her “Dear Santa” letter. She asked for all kinds of great fitness gadgets and gizmos, including my dream pedometer (not Mac-compatible or shippable to Canada, unfortunately). She’s encouraging other bloggers to think about and post their own Dear Santas, and I’ve been inspired to do my own!
I think I’ve been really good this year! I’ve made huge progress at work, I’m wrapping up school, and I think I’ve been good to the people I love. I’ve worked hard at being good to myself, too, by exercising more, eating better and trying to manage my health more proactively. No coal for me, please!
Instead, I would really love a great rain jacket from MEC. I could wear it almost year-round, depending on layering under it, and it would let me go for walks in the crummy Vancouver fall weather. A swimsuit would be really great, too, because then I can start aquacizing again!
Something that would be really great would be a gift certificate for a new pair of running shoes and a learn-to-run clinic. I love my New Balance runners, but they need to be replaced desperately, and the new NBx line even comes out in January! Plus, then I could do a learn-to-run clinic, at somewhere like the Running Room or LadySport, or through SportMedBC.
I’d really love a pedometer, like the one Lady Rose is asking for, but I can’t find any that fit my needs – goes in the pocket or on a belt and uploads info to the computer (Mac-compatible).
Some neat kitchen gadgets would be nice, because they always encourage me to get my butt into the kitchen and get creative and healthy with my cooking.
Finally, what I’d really like is motivation and determination. 2007 saw less success than I would have liked, and I know that much of that comes from my lack of commitment to myself. If I weren’t losing weight but I was consistently eating well and exercising, that would be okay; but, I’m not eating well or exercising enough, AND I’m not losing. Please bring me my drive back, Santa.
PS: I still want world peace, a safe home for everyone, and a higher minimum wage. I know you’re working on it. 😀
PPS: A subscription to TheBestLife.com would be great, because I think I need a plan and I think it’s the one for me.
There are other things I’m hoping to get for Christmas, but mostly they aren’t related to health, fitness, or nutrition, so I’ll leave those out of this letter.
What do you want for Christmas?
