Fresh Start

I think that it is safe to say that the end of 2010 went by in a blur.  Even though I was not posting regularly, you all should know that to prepare for the holiday eating festivities, I went back on Weight Watchers, joined a third gym and amped up my weight lifting routine to 3 days a week...which resulted in an 11 pound weight loss between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yes, really.

Which leaves me in a unique position - I am actually at my 'healthy' point at the start of the new year - YeeHaw!!

So what are my resolutions?  In no particular order, they are as follows:

1) Run a good Foxborough Old Fashioned 10 Miler.  You all know that I detest this race.  You should also know that I am 2 weeks behind on my training schedule.  Which means there are lots of miles to pile on.

2)  Post to this blog at least 2-3 times a week.  This blog keeps me honest.  Which reminds me, does anyone have an interest in my 'tweeting' my workouts or possibly my food intake?  Please let me know.

3)  Figure out how to practice yoga regularly.  My yoga practice basically went to hell the few weeks before Christmas.  I have not even been to a class in weeks.  And yes, I totally feel it.  I was fortunate enough to reconnect with my home practice last week.  I am hoping to find a balance with my home practice and my studio practice.  In fact, finding this balance may be my Number 1 priority.

4)  Weight lift 3 times a week.  No further commentary necessary.

With an eye toward these resolutions, here is how I think the following week should shake out:

Monday (today) - Weight Lift after work
Tuesday - 4 Mile Run, 90 minutes gentle yoga
Wednesday - 15 minutes speed work, Weight Lifting...20 minutes lunar flow yoga home practice
Thursday - 5 Mile tempo run...20-60 minute home yoga practice
Friday - Noontime Power Yoga
Saturday - 7 Mile run, Weight Lifting
Sunday - Power Yoga (optional)
