Happy New Year, gang!!!
So I am starting this year off, well, differently. I don’t have a specific SET goal, other than hoping to double my mileage from last year with biking and running. Last year I hit 657 miles, so hoping to hit 1300 this year. I don’t know if it is doable with my schedule, but I sure will TRY.
My fitness goals are big…I have decided most importantly to eat better, live better, and work harder. This being said, I hope to do this BOTH mentally and physically.
I didn’t run today, but since my goal this year is to work out EVERY day, I did a small circuit training in my living room. Yes, that is how I often roll. 🙂
25 push ups
3 sets of bicep curls.
3 sets of tricep extensions
I have always struggled with confidence, and now as I am in the month of my 40th birthday, that lack of confidence has been knocking repeatedly at my door. I need to learn to better stand up for myself, yet be kind in doing so.
I need to stop letting people hurt me, and take my own advice.
I need to start believing more in me, for the rest will follow.
I need to stop listening to the people who may doubt me, yet never have taken the time to know me.
I need to recognize those who aren’t truthful with me, and just stop, stinkin’ listening to them.
I need to decide to hang on to the good, and let go of the bad. I preach it, now I need to do it…
I need to move forward with my dreams of writing a book, AND a cookbook, and quit putting it off until I have time-because I’ll never HAVE time, I have to make the time.
I need to clutch on to those who have supported me not only this year, but continually throughout my life.
I wanted to run today with all my running pals. But I woke up in a funk I couldn’t shake. It was 10 degrees, and my one pair of running tights were wet in the dryer when I got up at 8:45…I don’t want to take the decorations down-and haven’t…I am nervous about the upcoming year at work, be it current job and new. I am trying to overcome the “over the hill” birthday that is right around the corner. Ok…rant over. LOL
So a few months ago I made a Facebook page filled with motivation, workouts, and recipes. I didn’t think this page would grow…its quite simple actually. But tonight I hit 1000 likes, and I can’t help but to be proud. I am proud that I have put forth so much effort into the page, and more so proud I have helped support my fellow fitness and motivation pages. It’s been quite a fun journey. If you want to check it out, search “Movin’ it with Michelle Running, Recipes, and Real life adventures.”
Here’s wishing you ALL, a very happy, blessed, and prosperous year. I appreciate the unending support my family and friends have given me. Tomorrow. Is. A. New. Day.

My name is Michelle and I am a retired Air Force Master Sergeant. I have found a passion for running, cooking, writing, photography and all things that move my love for life! I've ran 3 full marathons, with a PR of 4:25, and 17 half marathons with a PR of 2:00:11 (yup-missed sub 2 by 11 seconds, lol). Thanks for joining me on my journey!
