Right back where I re-started...

Sunday, December 27, 2015

On Thursday, January 01, 2015, I set the following goals for the year:
Day 1: Tell just one person about your goals.
I will lose 5% by March 31. (Or before)
I will run no more than five, no less than three, half marathons this year.
I will practice more positive self talk.
GET BACK TO THE GYM!


I blogged that first day so I covered the "tell just one person" aspect. After that, it kind of went downhill. Not only did I NOT lose 5%, I'm pretty certain that I'm heavier now than I was then. I'm currently 140ish pounds AND my BF% has increased.
In 2015, I ran the Hypothermic Half in February, the Calgary Half in May, the RnR Vancouver Remix (a HM & a 10k) in October plus a few other 5 & 10 km races, an 8 mile, a 15 km, and a Mud Hero. I'm not done yet. I still have a 10 km run to do on Thursday. emoticon
"more positive self talk" - I did okay on this one but mostly because I really tried hard not to berate myself in front of Emily. I don't want her picking up my negative habits. She loves our healthy lifestyle because it's fun. Nothing I do should change that.
"get back to the gym" - I went more than usual but not as often as I should.

Carrying forward....
ST at least once a week
Yoga at least once, preferably twice, a week
Run 3-4 times a week

Less to no:
emoticonMy Timmy's coffee will be reduced to medium from large and limited to one per day. An "at home" coffee means no Timmy's coffee.
emoticon Away from home meals should be limited to once or twice a week.
emoticonChocolate should be good quality and kept to just a piece (60 cals or less) a day.

More:
emoticonWater.
emoticonVegetables. Fresh or frozen. 5 a day is easy if I allow myself the time to prepare.

Check in - blog bi-weekly just to remind myself to stay on track.
Be honest with my tracking.

    Great stuff, but I'm thinking ST should be more than once a week - says the gal that LOVES ST! Just a thought!

    Stay Strong and kudos for setting a fine example for the little one!!
