So the 2013 is here, the goals are set (not 1 but 2 marathons) and training for them get going in just under two weeks. So some small updates instead..
No sweetener coffee- probably near 18 months since i started this one. I was reminded because a few weeks ago I ordered a coffee and it bad sugar in it. I think we can mark this one done. I drank it, but can’t say it was a magical drink I missed. Was different, didn’t particularly enjoy it and happy to not have it again.
Tomatoes and mushrooms- can’t say the tomatoes have grown on me overall but we are at a truce. If they are there i eat them but I don’t ask for them. (Sun dried on the other hand are great.) The real surprise has been mushrooms. I’m not seeking them out actively either but I do eat them as well. On occasion I have really enjoyed them.
Cardio- been enjoying my break from the treadmill and going back to the stairmaster even tho i know calorie burn is less efficient. The sunday long runs (1 hour) have highlighted the lack of mid week running getting harder and harder. Also highlights my need to target distance not time. No motivation to go faster.
Cold- i am nearly wearing two sweatshirts at home! One thing i continue to not like about the weight loss. I also had to cut a few minutes off run sunday for same reason. Will need to watch it. Last year was warmer and i was still doing more treadmill in January and February
