accountability day 1

Thursday, December 06, 2012

it's always good to find a new way to reaffirm commitment to a healthy lifestyle. yesterday was the first day of my 62nd year, and we celebrated it with a great run. it was great because it was sunny, which doesn't seem to happen much, and above freezing, so no ice or snow to plow through or slip and slide. no resistance to getting out the door, which seems to make it tough so many other times. just a good day, a good run.

so what do i need to be accountable for here? i've tried so many times to commit to doing strength training and keeping up the miles. so here i go:

december miles:
9.6 running,
11.6 walking =
21.2 total
2012 miles:

567.4 miles running
993.3 miles walking (soon 1000!!)

1560.7 total!

i ordered the fitbit and am excited to have a new toy and a new source of motivation.

more things to track!

    Outstanding! I like the fact that you're being proactive and shaking it up! I'm working my Half Fanatic Challenge right now. It's a good thing. All the best, stay strong, and focused!

    Funny about that re-commitment. It really does have to be a frequent, sometimes daily, thing.

Oh, and by all means: Happy Birthday!

Good luck with the strength training. Starting with DVDs is a fun way to get it done.
