* Run 1000 miles. I know, I know. I wrote this down last year. Ignoring the first week of this year (did I mention my Cute Husband had his keys/wallet/phone stolen and staying up late canceling credit cards doesn't mix with 4:30am runs), I think it is possible. I have lots of great inspiration out there to draw upon, and I really think that's what I need sometimes.
* Leave the muffin top behind. Let's face it folks. It's been 14.5 years since I had a baby. Though my baby weight is gone, the baby pooch is still there. No one thinks I'll lose it anytime soon because it's supposed to have left years ago. And, yes, I have a plan for this too. Step one... bought a resistance band. Step two... started using it. Ouch. Hopefully one of these days my arms won't feel like soggy noodles when I'm done. Step three... check out other kind of workouts as well. I'm kind of interested in kettlebells. I've heard lots of good stuff. I'd rather be out running... but they say this is how it works to get stronger. 2012 is the year to test out this theory.
* Eat better. It goes hand in hand with leaving the muffin top behind. This means staying away from Trader Joes. At least that isle where the chocolate covered cherries live.
Other than that, I haven't keyed in any specific races at this point. Those kids and their things are too unpredictable at this point. I always feel like I'm going out on a huge limb to make plans like that because of them. I really would like to find something to do this spring - then there would be that motivation to keep getting up on a regular basis while these colder mornings are here. And I don't even live where it's REALLY cold! Now just to find something I could get excited about....
