2010 is officially here, and so is the SNOW. Thankfully, I now have a new treadmill in my basement to go along with my bike on the trainer. Now I can do duathlons without ever leaving the house, which is great for these very snowy days. We've also inherited a Bowflex machine, so I can even do some lifting here at home. :-)
Eating better as of Dec 26 has been so-so. I haven't had any REALLY bad days, but I have had too many little junk food snacks that I said I wasn't going to eat AT ALL. (like leftover peanut butter fondue and angel food cake.) So, I still need to do better there. I've been buying even more fresh fruit and veges and doing a good job with my meals, now I just have to make sure no more junk food comes into the house!
I've been working out like crazy lately, which has thankfully been enough to get my weight down a few pounds, but of course I'm not where I want to be yet. I'm not worried though, I still have a few months to get there and stay there.

The more I can post on here about my eating, my weight and my workouts, the more accountable I think I'll be.
I need motivation to keep working hard. Having others know my goals and what I've really been doing should help me do that.


  1. I really hear you about the eating right and bring the right food into the house! I'm hoping some accountability will come from my blog too :) Good luck and it looks like you had a great consistent December. Happy New Year and here's to reaching all of your goals!

  2. Hmm, PB Fondue, wonder where that came from. Good job staying strong over the holidays, I cannot say the same. I ate WAAAAAAY too much.

    Anyway, looks like you are doing well with the training, remember I will always be here to encourage you!
