Well kids, let’s just pretend like January never happened. At long last it appears we are all, more or less, in good working order. I plan to take Ruby to story time at the library tomorrow. That’s right. We’re in go-out-in-public kind of good health. Let’s hope I’m not jinxing it with this post.
And since January never happened, it’s only natural that I do all the year end/new year bloggy stuff in February. Let’s start off by checking in with my 2012 goals…
In a nutshell – GOLD STAR. I win.
In several nutshells:
1) I ran a full marathon. I actually trained properly this time around and it paid off during the race. I do plan on actually writing a recap so I’ll refrain from doing so here. Let’s just say mission accomplished.
2) I got back to my pre-pregnancy weight. As of now I’m actually about 5 lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight thanks to two bouts of the stomach flu in less than two weeks. But I’m pretty confident gaining that back will be NO PROBLEM. I’m helping the process along by eating Diary Queen blizzards and BBQ potato chips.
In all seriousness, it took me about 8 months to lose all the pregnancy weight. And I feel really okay with that. I opted out of dieting and let all that running catch up to me.
3) I (sort of) got back to a regular Bikram yoga practice. My goal was to go once a week, and for awhile I was actually doing that. But it got to be too much once I was in the thick of marathon training. Getting to yoga can also be a bit of a logistical pickle between breastfeeding and Jason’s work schedule. So I feel good about what I was able to do.
4 & 5) I did not complete the 200 sit-ups or the 100 push-ups challenge. I started. Barely. Turns out this wasn’t important to me. It’s a good thing I said I wasn’t going to beat myself up if it didn’t happen.
It’s also a good thing I didn’t include things like “get anything done” or “maintain my sanity” on my list of goals.
