Goals are dreams with deadlines. Stop dreaming! I took control of my life and with the help of many wonderful people I was able to lose 135 pounds in 11 months. Set a goal, tell everyone who will listen, and stick to your plan. You can do it!!
The first cool thing was I tried some new endurance fuel from Tailwind Nutrition after reading a review by Cory Reese. I don't normally have GI issues but I am always looking for something great. I mentioned seeing his post to my friend Christine who finds it hard to get calories down during a race. She bought some and we split it. Anyway, it went down easy, tasted good, and I felt good afterward. It was a 12+ mile predawn run in cool temps so I would say it needs more field testing but I like it!
The second cool thing that happened was I bought a SMALL shirt for work and brought it to wear today. I told Michelle I bought a shirt and she rolled her eyes as if to say YOU DO NOT NEED ANY MORE SHIRTS! .....and she is right. I bought it just because I could AND it fits. (no sausage wrap here) The last time I bought a small anything I was probably 12 years old. It was a really good feeling after years of never being able to find anything on the rack because all the XXXL's were gone.
The other cool thing this morning was completing 2 laps at Polecat Trail with Christine. We negative split the 2 loops by 2 minutes and spent a total of 50 seconds in the 'aid station' at my truck between laps. Good times!
