2009 Here I Come

I hope everyone had an excellent holiday season, ate a lot, slept a lot, enjoyed their families, and got some good exercise time in.  I had a great break, ate waaay too much and my body is ready for some serious butt-whooping.  

2009 Goals
*Keep carbs at 195grams a day for my lovely diabetic diet
*Workout 5-6 times a week, with a double workout twice a week
*Stick to my training schedule no matter how gnarly it is.. 
no matter how much I want to kick it in the shins
*Stay positive, don't allow negative talk
*Blog at least twice a week...be accountable for my workouts and my weigh-ins
*Complete at least 3 half marathons, the Wasatch Back, and a sprint triathlon.

Those are some good goals. If you learn some great new tactics for positive thinking/banning negative thoughts, please share. I need help in that area.

Is it weird that I am so jealous of your race schedule?! **sigh** I will miss you at the Wasatch Back and my fam is doing the Ogden Half. Sniff. I am determined to get a sprint triathlon in at the end of the season - it is a good thing St. George isn't too far away. Hopefully I will get some others in there too!

I found your blog through a friend of a friend of a friend anyways I think we went to high school together (you might be younger) I am also training for the winter racing circuit and was just wondering how you run when it is snowing like crazy? Do you just get out and do it? I hope you don't mind if I follow your blog so I can keep up on your training plan. What training plan are you using?

Hey Jennifer! Welcome to LPRN. I checked out your "2009 Fitness" blog and saw you're training for a half and wanting to lose weight. That's awesome, we have similar goals!

Welcome to winter training. You know I used to despise it but now it's one of my favorite times of year. How about I'll put together a post just about winter training. check back later today!
