It’s that time a year again when I reflect upon my traditional 60 day reboot.
The mantra this year is “This is my healthiest year yet”.
I’ve logged just about every stat I could these past 60 days. I’ve ate very clean with none to little bad fats, sugar and gluten and very few processed foods.
Although loosing weight wasn’t the primary goal, I lost over 20lbs. Body fat was a huge goal.
More importantly than anything else, the reboot like all the past ones was meant to create healthy habits and momentum.
It’s been almost a year since my 1st ever run and about half a year running regularly.
Although I work a lot these past 60 days, I tried to be as effective as possible so I can create time for my mental and physical fitness while not neglecting my career and my family.
A beautiful side effect of my reboot and/or my past decisions have ignited a passion on some others including my wife and my youngest son both running further distances than I could’ve possibly imagine happening anytime soon.
The reboot is not the end all but only a new beginning. I plan on running 1,000 miles in 2020. I plan on spending time with my family doing so. Running with my wife and kids on a regular basis and running a 15k, half marathon and full marathon with my brother this year.
15k in Birmingham
1/2 marathon in Atlanta
Full marathon Chattanooga TN
On my last day of my reboot my youngest decided to take the plunge and run two miles with me. I cannot express the pride and joy I felt, then the next day running 3 miles with me at 6 years old.
Not in competition with anyone other than myself. Determined to work hard and push myself to challenging my mind and body.
Giving a new meaning to new year’s resolutions these past few years and completing them 100%
