New Me for 2014

So this year I haven't been very active on here but have been making progress with my weight loss. I started 2013 at 156.6 and am ending at 139.4 (about 17 lbs lost). At one time I was down to 136.2 but the last 2 months of the year have not been nice to me ... Thanksgiving, Christmas, and minimal working out. I am not going to beat myself up about it and will start the new year with fresh goals. Still continuing my ultimate goal of 125 but more of wanting to get lean and fit not so much just ...

Still continuing my ultimate goal of 125 but more of wanting to get lean and fit not so much just the weight loss. I want tone and muscle definition. So here's to a New Me for 2014.

How did you do on the race on Saturday? Thanks for wishing me good luck, I just saw that this morning. I had a great time at the race, met my goal and enjoyed being in such a festive atmosphere.

Our BMI is exactly the same and you ran the RnR half in 2011...and I didn't.

Man, I have no excuse!! I need to get on the ball :)

That's awesome, Karalyn! Definitely let me know if you do the RNR Half. I'm moving to MD in June and will be much closer to VB (YAY!) and will probably be looking to do some 5Ks/10Ks this summer and fall in VB. If you hear of any good ones, let me know :)
