Well I hit my goal last year and I maintained pretty well! This summer's indulgence got away with me a little bit though, and I gained 10 lbs.

So I'm back again to start being more conscious again.

I'm training for a couple runs coming up. I have a 10k in about 3 weeks (mid-October 2014), and a half-marathon in March. I'm really nervous about the half-marathon!

In the time since I've last logged in, I've switched careers and moved countries! I am now a full time physics teacher and I live in Germany (near the border with the Czech Republic). I am absolutely loving my life here (though the beer isn't helping with my weight maintenance)... but I've met several friends who are all living healthy lifestyles, and one of who has turned out to be the PERFECT running partner for me, so I feel very lucky!

    Thanks for the tip! No I was not aware I can change my tracker to a maintenance tracker. Good job on losing 50 pounds!

    Hey thanks for your comment on my blog. As for distance I've been running on a treadmill so far so it's been easy to keep distance. When it gets warmer I plan to switch to running outside, and in the past I've used google maps or spark people maps to get distance before or after a run. I've been thinking about getting a GPS watch, but didn't want to make the financial commitment until I feel like running is something I'm willing to do in the long run. I hadn't heard that the watches are sometimes inaccurate though so that's something to keep an eye out for.
