I am going to be so strong by the end of the summer!
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
- Learn to cook a few basic, healthy meals that I can cook on my own in my apartment this fall.
- Continue exercising regularly, especially cardio.
- Track my food intake and stay within the goals set here!
Currently I'm just noticing what I eat and making changes, trying to choose healthier foods and cut back on sweets.
I completed the couch-to-5K program a few weeks ago, and have consistently been running about 3 miles a few times each week since then, but now that it's summer and warmer it's a lot more challenging to get outside and run!
I'm also starting more strength training in my program.
