Day 196: I've missed you guys!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Hi everyone!

As I can imagine, all of you can sympathize with being completely consumed by the holidays!

So, I got totally consumed by the glutton-monster and wound up putting on a few holiday pounds. I hit my lowest point in December at 188.8 pounds and have since climbed as high as 195 and currently sit at 190.6 this morning.

Well, I ran my stats this morning. After some holiday carnage I wound up officially 40lbs down from where I was in March. I now have 30lbs to go until I reach my goal weight. On Monday I ran my last 5K of the year and pushed my total (tracked) mileage to 446 for the year. I ran six races in three months and improved my PR on the 5K from 37:11 to 36:55 on a challenging, hilly race. Yep, I've got lots to brag about and I intend to continue bragging!

Today, the day after New Year's day, is the test for all of us. Everyone who set a goal, today is the first 'real' accountability day.

So, I'll be at the gym after work, pounding out some calories on the Eliptical (Or, if I'm feeling crazy, I may actually try one of those scary ass tread mills..)

I wanted to write more; but, I do have some work to do. I hope you guys are primed and ready to accomplish everything you've set your big, wonderful hearts on.

Let's go get this!

    Missed you, too. I've managed not to gain, which I guess is good, but I've also slacked off a bit and it is definitely time to get back to paying attention. Thanks for the reminder and keep bragging! You earned the right!!!

    I've been a coward and haven't weighed, know I need to soon. You just kicked me in the rear to get in gear again, thanks! Have a great New Year!
