This one's a bit of a non-post and a ramble, just to try and capture my end-of-year mood and show that I'm still here.
I hoped today would be the day that I finally got to post my half-marathon story. It was such an amazing experience, and I feel like I should have eagerly jumped all over it and had it done by now. It tends to keep getting sidetracked by...well, just about everything: holiday hanging out; feasting, playing, and resting with my family; going back to work after a nice week off; hitting the gym again. I started writing about it again last night, but I realized that it wasn't going to get finished, and I felt so frustrated. I had time over vacation, but I didn't do it then, either. Why am I putting this off?
Health and fitness-wise, I pretty much took the holidays off. No tracking, no weighing/measuring/portion control, lazily eyed the carb intake, was less scrupulous about fiber and veggies. I think it was kind of a reaction to the panicked clamping down earlier in the month. So I think I'm just going to try gradually picking up the reins again and easing them in. Keep doing at least my minimum fitness goals; use portion control on the protein and carb and saturated fat items; aim for at least 3 veggie servings per day. I guess just go back to my "ordinary time" eating and fitness, and see what happens from there.
Thing is, I'm not fired up. I'm not eager to jump back in and set goals...yet. I'm usually not ready for all the New Year's hype, and I am not one for making the infamous "New Year's Resolutions." I'll come up with some 2011 plans, and fairly soon, but not just right now.
I do hope everyone enjoys a wonderful end-of-2010 and close of the holiday season!
