It has been one extraordinary year since I started Running Without a Watch. It all began because I desperately needed to find an easier way to exercise each day and to eat healthier without driving myself and my family crazy. Jackpot, baby!
When I first started I was 172.0lbs and my goal was to drop to 160.0. I reached this goal weight at the end of October and have never looked back. When I weighed myself two days ago, the scale said 160.0. What more can I ask for? I just got finished my best running month ever, logging 100.7 miles in August. Five out of the past six months, I have run 20 days or more for the month. The one month I missed was when our baby was born.
I have become more relaxed with my food, keeping it very simple. I measure out portions and eat tons of fruits and vegetables. I still have my moments, but they are more the exception than the rule.
I am looking forward towards my second year. I hope to continue to maintain my weight, experiment with new foods, make new recipes and run a half marathon in March.
Congratulations to all of us who are striving to be our very best!
