Happy New Year!

So... today is my "New Year's Day."

I've been celebrating my birthday for the past few weeks (I know, I know... even for me it was too long) and eating everything in sight but today I christened to be "New Year's Day" and I started by 10-week training plan for the 15K I want to run and gave my eating habits a quick makeover.

No, I am not perfect. No, I will never be. But I am trying.

I am going to aim more for fueling my body rather than cutting the most calories possible. Training for the 15K is going to be really tough for me and I hope I can do it. Today was an easy day. A "stretch and strengthen" day. I did yoga and spent a lot of time just stretching out my muscles to get back into the swing of things. For food.

Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with skim milk.
Dunkin Donuts egg white flatbread sandwich
Salad (all veggies, no dressing)
1/2 turkey sandwich on whole grain bread, no dressing or sauces
Steamed ginger chicken and green beans

And just to clarify, if there is anybody out there who still reads this thing. I am writing what I ate, not because I think you'll care, but because I need to hold myself accountable.

Goodnight and Happy New Year :)
