I set out with some ambitious goals for 2016, obviously some of the one off items will come when they come, but obviously the exercise and weight goals is a year long effort, so it is time to check in with the Stats for January,
I had some issues with the pool at my gym, and obviously it is much more likley to have a desire to swim in the warmer months, so even though I am behind on my swim schedule as well, I am not too concerned about it… Â I swam 3/4 a mile for the first time this year yesterday so my stamina is coming back quickly. (It would be nice if I could get some speed gains as well, but I will settle for distance.
Now, the weight loss, I am exactly where I want to be. Â With a goal of 60 pounds for the year, I am technically a pound ahead of the game, but I figure there are going to be some weeks where the losses will be a bit more difficult (Superbowl party, barbeques, Thanksgiving, etc), so I want to stay ahead of the curve here as much as I can.
I have often been plagued by Seasonal Affective Disorder, and a let down after the holidays which has at times turned me into something of a slug. Â The fact that I made it through January, is (I hope) a good sign moving forward.
