I gained four pounds (well, 3.8 to be exact) during the holiday season. I'm fine with this as it matters what I eat between New Year's and Christmas rather than what I eat between Christmas and New Year's. The vast amounts of heavier/sweeter/fattier foods and increased number of social events are typical for the holiday season but not the rest of the year. (Didn't I already write about this?)
In any case, the scale is moving down again as the daily routine returns to normal. I'm back in the pool, walking to and from the train and I managed to fit in a second swim on Sunday PLUS (OMG) a run/walk on Saturday.
The run/walk felt great; the temperature was perfect running weather at -10 degrees (Celsius). I started back at the beginning with one minute running & one minute walking for approximately 20 minutes. I ran more than intended as my Polar heart rate monitor needs a new battery, so I couldn't hear the timers beeping or they simply weren't beeping at all.
Of course, running once is not a habit; it's a single occasion. I would like to make running a habit (again), not just a once in a while event. This is why I'm developing a Start a new healthy habit plan (challenge). Are you interested in joining me in a quest to start a new healthy habit? More details to come...
Also, thank you Sarah @Fat So Sarah, Elle @We can begin to feed, and Slim Katie @Runs for Cookies by reading your posts, you helped me get into my running gear and back out on the road!
