Much better today! So up & at 'em!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

No signs of sore throat or headache today... so staying home yesterday was a good idea. Today hubby and I went out for breakfast (about 9:30), which was nice and then went shopping for a new dishwasher (the old one has been filming up the dishes for a couple of years and we are tired of it).

I also purchased a set of Yaxtrax for my shooz (I just love spelling it that way) in case of ice for Monday's 5K. The current forecast is 1-3" of snow and about 35 degrees, which should be really interesting.

I never did get on the treadmill yesterday, but I did stay in calorie range. My steps were way down too, but I hope to fix that somewhat today. I am only at 60% for my weekly goal of 70K steps so far this week... whoops.

My bigger challenge has been the eating more than exercise. I will be TM'ing today... I am going to try to run 3.1 at 6 mph. That will be my last run before Monday. I will try to get some crosstraining in tomorrow... some Jillian Michaels or Wii stuff for a change and fun.

What are everyone's NY Eve plans? What about goals for the new year?

I plan to come home after the race and chill out, we will have shrimp and little smokie sausages, cheez-its and squeezie cheese... tradition. I will throw some veggies in too, with tasty hummus. That should make for a decent feast.

My goals for 2013, increase exercise, decrease evening snacking or controlling what I snack on! Run a sub 30 minute 5K, and possibly get a 10K under my belt.

UPDATE 1645: An exhilarating Treadmill run today! My 5K time was about 37 minutes. I am not looking at breaking any records Monday, my goal is to run the whole thing. I think that is a good one considering my lack of acclimatization to the running in the cold and possible snow on the ground... and the lack of incline training. I also hate it when I am running along at a good pace and my thumb clips the string attached to the safety key... pain in the behind!
