Back on the Wagon

It's been a very good week back on the wagon. Actually, It's been a great week and a fantastic start to the year.

Since last Monday's crash, I've been going non-stop, hitting the gym every day since Tuesday. I've finally gotten my running back going with 11 miles last week in addition to 33 spin miles and 3 Body Pump classes.

My diet has gone back the right way as well. While I'm not full blown South Beaching, I am using that as my base with added fruits like bananas and oranges. Other than that and a Clif Bar before workouts, it's all going well. I've dropped 12 of the refound pounds, now weighing in at 252.

So far, I've run every day in 2010, at least two miles. I've never done any "run every day" kind of self-challenge, but I think it's time. For the month of January, my goal is to run at least two miles a day. It would be a great start to the year.

Now, I've bowed to my many fans for more posts. Hope to have many more to come.

L'Chaim!

Great start. 12# is nothing to sneeze at. I was at 230 yesterday.

I promise - when I need some motivation and inspiration because I have had more then i can take. Since I haven't followed your story from the beginning, I just randomly pick out ONE of your posts and I'm given a new outlook. I'm motivated in a way I wasn't before. You NEVER give up and you're always ready. That is so incredible. So impressed of you and what you've done. Your family is pretty awesome too!!! I wish more people would take an example from you!! Stay with it.

It's good to be posting again. I was gonna make that one of my goals for 2010, but I figure I'll save that for a separate post ;).

Tracie -- thank you for your kind words! Yes, I'm rather fond of my family, too!
