As I sit here celebrating the new year with my 4 year old daughter I am reflecting on what I have accomplished in the last year.
I started out the year weighing in at 129.2 and today one year later I weighed in at 127.0 so a 2.2 pound loss. I was down to around 120 or so until I broke my leg and my fitness got sidetracked. I am just going to stick with I maintained the weight loss for a year so far.
My goal for the year beyond maintaining the weight loss was to run 1017 K for the year in the Map My Run challenge group.
I made it more that that coming in at 1627 K which is 1010.97 miles. I hope to make that into 2000 K for 2018.
Also in 2017 I had my first ever broken bone, ran my first 10 K race, and signed up for my first 10 mile race to be run in 2018.
I have many things to be proud of this year as well as some regrets. I have learned that I need to cross train and not just run as my only form of fitness. I have learned that streaking can be a bad thing and I was running way too much at the cost of my body and my family.
I plan to run no more than 3 days a week a week and cross train or strength train 3 days a week and having 1 day a week as an all around rest day. I am not sure how long this will last but it is my starting plan to be tweaked as I love along with my fitness journey.
