Post-Christmas, Pre-New Years...

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Hm... what is there to say about the last few days? I ignored everything, cooked/baked a lot, enjoyed my family (in-laws were here for Christmas) - and I even got in two days of running. Not too bad. emoticon

Of course, then I got on the scale this morning emoticon ...

I got a FitBit for Christmas (and a new bluetooth headphones/head set for running)... and I am obsessed with getting in 10K steps daily! lol I've had pedometers before, but never been this focused on it. So I have to laugh at myself. However, it did get me on the treadmill on Christmas (3.5 miles to make my 10K) and yesterday (2.5 miles). I love looking at my sleep patterns - I can see when DH comes to bed and when the kids woke up! lol

Anyway, I realized that I have 5 days until the new year - and I'm not going to make my December mileage goal. emoticon My knee is hurting today, so I won't be running tonight (though I may try to fit in something else)... but it means my mileage won't happen. I wanted to get to where I could run a full 30 minutes without stopping by the end of Dec too... I made 27 minutes (by sheer force of will I think) on Christmas. I'll try for 28 minutes tomorrow and I should be able to hit this goal.

I am back to eating better today (in-laws got on the plane this morning) - even though my MIL left us with POUNDS of fudge and other candies. I will hide it all when I get home - and, maybe, bring a big plate for the office tomorrow (and put it in an area FAR away from myself).

And today's motivation:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” Aristotle

    I had my ACL replaced due to an accident about 7 year ago... most of the time I don't notice, but if I overtrain is starts to hurt, so I have to take a day or two off... like today. Not really worried about it, just makes me slow down :-)
    Maybe I'll do cardio boxing tonight instead of running! emoticon

    Good job on the 10k steps per day, that's awesome! Sorry to hear about your knee, I hope it heals up soon!

    Great quote, one I should repeatedly consider.

    Have a great Thursday!
