Here I sit, watching for my body to get energy to go for a run. Not sure why I am so tired but I am excited to play with my new toys. It was my boyfriend's Christmas with his family and I got alot of fun gift like clothes, picture frames, and a subscription for a box of snacks to get mailed to me.
I must say my boyfriend's gift topped all the other generous gifts. He got me a Garmin watch. For those non-runners, it's a watch that tells me my pace, distance, calories burned and what time it is. I am really excited for it. I am curious if it will tell me how many calories burned during other exercise and it if it works on a treadmill.
I realize being supportive of my running, fitness and eating healthy is very important to me. Other guys in my life were not. They'd try me I shouldn't do it for whatever reason or try to sabotage me. It's huge for me that my boyfriend is supportive of my running. He went to my Turket Trot 5K and wants to do more. He got me a bike for my birthday in April. And, now the Garmin! The support means alot to me. I find it very ironic that I am at 205 and I was at 160ish with those other guys. It really makes me feel like I can get into shape.
On Friday, I met with a trainer about the potential of training. She was nice enough but I am still hesitate. While I was there, I learned they are having a January (new resolutions) promo where you can go to as many classes as you can stand for $30 for the entire month. Typically, each class is $10 so it's steal! I think I will be doing that maybe I will do personal training in February if it is still a want in my life. I think the group exercise class which I was assured is never bigger than 8 people would help me getting stronger, inside and out!
With all this, I have some goals for January and 2015 forming...
Work out 4-5 times a week.
Take group exercises - TRX and Kettlebells - MWF
Run a race every month of the year
Lose weight - down to 180 from 205
They are simple goals but hopefully get to who I want to me!
