What I did over Christmas Vacation
I spent a lot of time with my wife and kids.
I had good times with friends.
I worked out a little (actually, very little).
I drank some beer.
I ate way too many chocolate kisses.
I'm not into guilt, so I don't feel badly about my lack of progress on mileage or poor eating. I enjoyed myself with family and friends and just relaxed.
I am ready to get back to my mileage and fitness goals.
Over the past 10 days, I slacked off my training for the upcoming 10K, but I was already ahead of schedule in terms of mileage, so I think I'll be okay if I get back to it today.
Many of you post pictures of running in the snow and rain, so I won't complain about the challenge of running in our cold desert temps of 58 degrees. (But seriously, it feels like 52, so you know...it's cold.).
I'll eat better this week, but still have some parties to go to and want to not focus on calories until Jan 1. On Jan 1st, I'll get back to my old format of tracking my calories daily and posting my weight weekly. I'll set some new goals for my weight. As my running mileage ramps up, the pounds should fall (if I'm eating well).
I am coming back into focus and it feels good. 2011 will be a great year.
