End of 2012 and looking forward to 2013

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

It has been a year since a wrote a blog. I am back here because I need to get healthy again.

2011 was one of the hardest years in my 55 years. Divorce, Bankruptcy, lost my Mom and Business. Through all this I was able to keep my weight maintained.

Life changed for me - I moved from where I had lived for 25 years. I started a new life and met someone wonderful. We dated for 5 months and Married in March. Both of us are doing our 2nd marriage.

I guess falling in love is hard on the waistline. Well mine has expanded - alot less exercising and food choices not very good - equals some pounds gained. Around 30 for me.

I know what to do! starting in January - Going to get back on track! I have done better in December - no weight gain - Going to Join BL Challenge!

I thought I would write down some goals for 2013 and goals for January.

I really want to get back to running so My first goal is to run a Half Marathon by June 30, 2013 and working out 4 times at the gym per week.

I know I can do this - I lost 100 pounds before and that was hard, but I have the knowledge.

Other goals are to start Journaling my food.. So in Summary

Goals for 2013

1. Half Marathon completed by June 30, 2012
2. Work out 4 times per week
3. Journal my food at least 5/7 times per week
4. 600 miles run by December 31, 2013

Goals for January
1. Run 45 miles
2. Journal food at least 20 times
3 Drink more Water
4. Work out 4 times per week.

I look foward to getting back in shape!

    I like that you are not vowing to journal/track every day. Much better than the all-or-nothing mentality.

    Sounds like all your body mechanics are still in good order. Keep them that way by a reasonable ramp up of your physical activity level. Don't bend or break something! It is easy for us to "overachieve" on the road back to fitness and suffer setbacks or stoppers. You are older now, be patient with yourself. Have a great 2013!

    I love your goals. Very specific. It's obvious you know what it takes and I wish you the best in achieving your goals.

    Oh Mike! It is so good to see you back to Spark! Sorry about the weight gain but I am happy that you had a good 2012 even with that!

Sure hope you will be an Outlaw! :-)
