Instead of feeling embarrassed and lame about being off the "Health & Fitness" bandwagon, I felt excited to get back on.
Today's mantra: Every day is a new chance to start over.
So, I did.
I had a leisurely breakfast, drank my coffee and made a grocery list for the week. Then, the craziest thing happened...
And it was epic!
Yep, I ran in the cold and the wind, but it felt awesome. Sure I was out of breath and slow, but I still felt awesome. I even left the Garmin at home so pace wouldn't even been a thought in my head.
The run high was promptly tanked after my Sunday afternoon Target run. At least half of Cedar Rapids shops Target North on Sunday afternoons and yet I still go then.
Once I got home the cook and prep-a-thon began.
Weekly Goal: LOG EVERYTHING! Workouts! Food!
It may just be me, but I find that I am WAYYY more successful if I track what I'm doing. Something about typing "Snickers Bar" into the DailyPlate really kills your buzz. Along the same lines, seeing the big 0 miles/ week on the DailyMile sucks ass.
Not this week damn it!
Special thanks to Kim for writing me into her bad ass training plan and for also finally explaining, in dumb people words, how to execute a tempo run.
Are you feeling optimistic about your fitness goals for 2013?
