This site is mostly for my savings goals but I’m going to sneak a little post in here about physical fitness. I am not a born runner, it is something I make myself do for health and keeping fit. I am not overweight, but I have a few vanity pounds I’d like to lose. Will it make me any healthier? Probably not. Will it make me feel better in my skinny jeans? Most definitely!
In 2009 I worked out with a trainer in a small group setting for 12 weeks. He printed out all our workouts and I kept them. They are mostly body weight exercises (squats, push-ups, planks) stuff most people can do with limited equipment. I am committing to reviewing those workouts (at least one a week) in addition to my running schedule starting the first week of March. My goal is to lose enough weight to put me in my feel good range of 130-135 lbs. This will mean losing 6-11 lbs.
Also I want this to be the year of the marathon. I just want to cross this off my list of life goals. I am doing a 1/2 marathon in just over a week, and I know I won’t be very fast, I’ll probably have to walk some of it, or maybe even half of it, who knows, but I will have fun and finish. I’ll be with friends, so as long as I have a smile on my face, I’ll call it a WIN!
