Well, 2016 was here for a bit and now it's gone. I'm not going to do a misty-eyed recap of the year and talk about all the shoulda, coulda, woulda stuff. I will leave it at, "I want to do better." That being said, I hit the scale this morning and was greeted by an F-d up number.
I have not weighed 168.5 lbs. in at least 3 years, maybe more. I tipped the scales knowing it wasn't going to be pretty. It is time to close my mouth, step away from the snacks, and get back to my desired running weight. Here I come 145! Let's see how long it takes to get there.
I just finished up a nice 5 miler with Justin and feel good, even though we needed to search for my phone that bounced out of my pocket during the run. On such a gross day, it was nice to have a training partner to ensure getting out the door. Found and still working, my phone is wrapped in some paper towels because it is raining continuously outside. I have some work ahead of me physically. The good thing though, mentally I am ready for it.
Over the course of the coming months, I will be sharing about my nutrition, training, and some new things here on the blog. Here are some things to look for in the coming days and weeks on The Daily Fitness Journal:
1. My goals for 2017
2. Optic Nerve Review & Sunglasses giveaway
3. Zing Bar Review
4. An interview with a prominent running book author
5. First Day 5K race report
