The Last Day

I can’t say I’ll be sad to see 2008 go. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year.

There was some good:

  • New job
  • Paid off my car
  • Ran 1/2 marathon

There was some bad:

  • Architect laid off
  • Hurt my knee, did not run marathon

But overall, I think that I’ll just look forward to the exciting things that 2009 has in store for me. I have some goals for the next year. 

  1. Run (at least one) marathon 
  2. Run 1,000 miles
  3. Think seriously about actually doing a sprint tri-athlon
  4. Master that intuitive eating thing 
  5. Drop some more (10) pounds before getting into the longer distances in my marathon training
  6. Gain no weight DURING the marathon training
  7. Continue my excellent workout schedule
  8. Continue to exercise at least 26 days/month
  9. Keep up with my knee strength & stretching
  10. Drink 64 oz+ of water each day

Since I do 5 small monthly goals, I will continue with those -these are all health & fitness goals. I have others, too, of course, but don’t necessarily feel like sharing them at this time. I probably will in the future, though. I can’t keep secrets from you guys!

Tomorrow, I’ll have my January 5 goals & an account of how I did with December. I will also do an overview of how my $200/month grocery budget worked in the first month. Oooooh…..exciting!

I am planning on running 4-5 miles tomorrow, and then 3-4 on Friday. Sunday the Ambitious One will be back & I think we’re meeting at 10 AM for our Sunday run. 

I made it to the gym again this morning for 30 minutes on the stationary bike & 30 minutes of strength training. 

Happy New Year’s!
