Happy New Year

Friday, January 08, 2016

2015 was a great year for everything... but losing weight! emoticon haha DH & I bought property which we will hopefully begin building on this year, and I completed a challenge with my friends to run 12 races in 12 months. We had our last race in December, but started 2016 off with a fun New Years Day 5K.

Currently we're training for a long distance race. Two of us are doing a half marathon and the other two crazies are doing a full. I made a mistake with my last half. During training, I "treated" myself way too much and then when it was over I had formed some bad eating habits. I didn't gain while I was training, but the weight quickly packed on when I was done. This time I hope to train smarter. I've been loosely following the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle, but it's time to buckle down and commit to it.

And since planning is always the key to success, here's a menu I found on Pinterest for meal planning. I don't have everything filled out, but hopefully I'll finish up this afternoon so I can go grocery shopping tonight.

    emoticon Wow, I can't even imagine running. Even when I was 97 lbs in high school & on the track team, I hated every second of it. So I don't think that will ever be me. But I sooooooo admire people that can do it. It amazes me.
    I'm very impressed and admire your strength and commitment.
    This will be a great year for you.

    Glad to see you Sparkin'! Have missed you! I think menu planning is critical for all of us and its one of my goals for 2016 under the broad goal of working on being organized in general! emoticon

    I've been debating lately if menu planning is something I should try. I'm not a very organized person so this would be totally out of my norm, but things gotta change to get results right?
