I still can't believe the Pats won that game... one heck of an ending, that is for sure. It was a battle to the very end - which I guess that's what it should be in the Superbowl, right?
I don't know about you guys, but ate my fair share of crappy food (but it tasted so good!) and drank my fair share of caloric beverages during the game. Cheese & crackers with pepperoni, mini hot dogs, pizza... I went in knowing that the rest of February was going to be the start of something new - less dining out and more working out.
Instead of eating leftovers or takeout yesterday, I popped some steak tips into the crockpot and made some "fakeout" Chinese Beef & Broccoli over steamed brown rice - it was really good! Just a few ingredients and some planning ahead to save the waistline - something I need to get better at.
Then it was down to the basement for Day 1 of the 30 Day Shred... or in my case, the 21 day shred because I plan to do 7 days of each level during the month of February. I'm also doing a "Fab Abs February" challenge with my fitness & resolutions group on Facebook - check it out and join me if you're feeling fab! It's not too late to join!
On top of that, I've got a race lined up for a couple of weeks from now. It's really going to just be a baseline for where I am and where I want to go in 2015 as far as my running goals - it's not going to be fast, it's not going to be pretty. But it'll be a really sobering look at how far my fitness level has fallen since the summer and a baseline of where I'm starting.
