Time for an weekly recap of my yearly resolutions:

1) lose about 40 lbs
2) run a half-marathon
3) do the hundred pushup challenge

Lose 40 lbs

Looking at this chart, I've decided that weekends are not good for my diet. Every weekend has seen a halt to the steady decline in weight I'm able to maintain during the week. I am glad I've built up a little cushion on this goal though. I'm working 3rd shift next week in support of a go-live at work, and I fully expect my diet to consist mainly of soda and White Castle's. I'm fully expecting to have a weight pop up above the trend line sometime in the next two weeks.

Run a Half Marathon

I'm pretty happy with where I landed on this goal this week. After a wardrobe mishap during last weekend's long run left me staring longingly at my youngest daughter's diaper cream, I was forced to take two days off running. I had intended to run back-to-back-to-back-to-back 3 mile runs. In hindsight, that would have been way ambitious. On Friday morning, after running three days straight, my legs hurt like they haven't hurt on the day after a run since back in October. Not that I'm complaining. I'm sick and like that hurt. I got a seven mile run under my belt today, and think I feel pretty good. I'm hoping to shoot for eight next weekend.

Do the Hundred Pushup Challenge
Still haven't started on this one. It will be at least February until I start on this one.
