What makes a person just stop? I spent 10 months of the year exercising regularly, getting on Sparks on a daily basis, doing great. Doubled my goal of running a 5K competitively, and had good times doing it both times. Increased my distance... all going really well. Then in Nov I just shut down. The only things I did on a regular basis was log in, spin the wheel, and read 2 blogs a day. Didn't track anything, and unfortunately didn't run or walk on a regular basis, either. My goal was 750 aerobic miles in the year - and I did do 705. It would have been so easy to complete the goal if I had just walked 1 mile every day in Nov and Dec. I didn't.
Now, before you say anything, I'm not complaining, I'm not beating myself up over this. It's just a fact. I'm ready to get back on track - using the 1st as a mental time to regroup and 'reboot'. I'm just trying to figure out WHY I coasted to an almost stop. I know I'm going to have to build myself back to where I was and it will take some time. Maybe this time when I get restarted I'll add in the strength exercises I know I should be doing on a regular basis. I don't usually worry about 'New Year's Resolutions', and I'm not making resolutions now, but I do want to set some goals. I believe that will be another blog. (I need to do that more regularly too, right?)
Wishing y'all a happy, healthy, productive New Year!
