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.
"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.
ST at least once a week
Yoga at least once, preferably twice, a week
Run 3-4 times a week
Less to no:
My 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.
Away from home meals should be limited to once or twice a week.
Chocolate should be good quality and kept to just a piece (60 cals or less) a day.
Vegetables. 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.
