Anyway, now as I return to work I also return to "fretting" :).
So in the interest of transparency, here's the damage done in December 2009:
- I put on five pounds in the month of December.
- I'm up about nine pounds from my absolute lowest (pre-Thanksgiving) point in 2009.
- (On the plus side, I'm still down nearly 30 pounds from my peak weight in 2009)
- I have not run in three weeks.
The last one worries me, because it happened so easily. A lot went on, and I can list a dozen excuses, but I know that if I were in training for an event I would have made time to run. I didn't. I also know that my fitness goals for 2010 might be unrealistic -- I had hoped to increase my mileage throughout the winter but now I think aiming to maintain my mileage is more realistic.
I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions. But being back from vacation is a good time to refocus on goals and reprioritize.
Vacation is over. Time to start paying attention to portions again and making time to run. Let's see where I am in a few weeks and re-evaluate my goals accordingly....
