In November, I went from being unemployed to working 8-10 hours a day - 7 days a week. This is only a "temporary" project that I am doing but my life as a fitness trainer has been totally put on hold. I've noticed that the harder I work, the more I eat and less I have time to exercise. Luckily, I have an agreement with my employer that my exercise has priority in my life. I still go the the gym and work out daily, take 3 spin classes a week and even get in an occasional bike ride or ski trip.
I think I have gained between 5-10 pounds in the last 3 months - probably from sitting at the computer so much. Also, the holidays were somewhat stressful (but fun). Lots of eating and drinking.
Now, it is time to starting planning 2011. I have several goals this year. 1. I will complete my goal to ride 6000 miles by my 60th birthday (coming up in August). I have 2727 miles to go. I will also ride my first century ride on May 1st. Plus, no matter what - I will do some sort of exercise every day for at least 60 minutes a day. Today makes 24 days out of 24 days that I have met my 3rd goal.
