Yesterday marked one year since I started working out every single day, except Sundays, and I have yet to miss a work out. I've actually scheduled this to post while I'm out running on a beautiful 60 degree day, because I actually run now, and not just the half jog/half walk nonsense I did a few years ago, but actual running. Very slow running.
Now, I haven't hit the numbers goals I wanted to hit by now as far as weight and body composition goes, but I'm making amazing strides in that direction. People are noticing, I'm noticing, and I look good!
My endurance, strength, flexibility, weight, diet, size, mood, and energy have all increased (or decreased) dramatically. I feel better. I look better. I am better. And I have no intention of stopping anytime soon!
This year, I plan to continue my routine but have started training for some specific activities. I'm working up to a 5K, again, but this time for real. 10K is next. I have some races I'm eyeing to motivate me even more. Then, this September, I'm registered to run a Tough Mudder - 10-12 miles, 30 obstacles. Marines do this for fun. I honestly cannot wait. Except that I can, because I'm not ready. But I will be!
I won't be sharing my self-portrait-bathroom mirror-workout-clothes before and afters, but I did have some recent photos taken in normal clothes that I'm rather pleased with. They were for my guest post at The Little Big about being a thrifty fashionista, which I highly recommend checking out.
sizes not mattering, and they really don't, but I still get some satisfaction from going down in a dress size or two!
Anyone want to race with me in DC? What are your fitness goals this year?
