I'm looking ahead to the new year and getting serious about getting fit. I have a half marathon planned for May and am currently not running at all. I finally have my wrist pain free, after 3 months with a splint on, and a cortisone shot, but my right hand is as weak as a kitten from underuse, so I have some gradual strengthening to do to bring it up to exercising ability re weights. But I want to build me some muscle. I'm tempted to get myself a few personal trainer sessions with the local "crossfit"-style gym. It looks so cool in there, but very intimidating.
And hubby and I will be laying a whole upstairs worth of new bamboo hardwood flooring, so lots of low-level activity in the next few months. Plenty of squatting.
Foodwise, I plan to get back onto the potato hack at least 2 days per week, then keep the rest of the week at moderate carb Primal. Lay off the social drinking - too many wine opportunities at this time of year - and get back to my once weekly martini with hubby.
Right now I'm sitting at 152.5, too much for my fine-boned 5'6" frame. I'm aiming for a well-muscled 135 lbs (135 is still overfat on my fine frame, but I'm aiming for some muscle development in the next few months.
So, get through the next week - Christmas eve, Christmas day, visit at (celiac, but still starchy) foodie friends for 2 days, then New Years eve. Whew! If I can get through the next week without gaining weight, I will consider that a success.
