I've been meaning to write about my New Year's Resolutions and give you an update on where I've done well and where I've fallen short. I suppose I'll do that now and then I can always re-visit them as I intended on writing about something else but here goes...
* Run outdoors twice a week: This is the only resolution where I can say with certainty that I've done well to meet. I have ran outdoors at least twice a week every week this year. The Garmin and my half-marathon training plan will only help me continue to attain this goal so I am not worried now about running exclusively indoors.
* Wear my CPAP six times a week: I've not worn it six times a week. I'd say it's been more of an average of three times a week. What I need to do is make an appointment with my doctor and get a new sleep study done. I really think my CPAP is not effective, or at least not as effective as it can be. Even on days when I've worn it and I shouldn't be tired, I still feel a bit fatigued. And then there are days like Monday where I just felt wiped out all morning for no apparent reason. I need a new sleep study and with a new CPAP and - at the very least - a new mask, I should be able to wear it every night.
* Maintain 1,800 calories a day: I think I've done well to meet this goal. I know over the last couple of weeks that I've lost some of the weight I put on during the holidays. I think I'm down at least three pounds, and that's a combination of both an increase in my running and a decrease of my calorie intake. I don't log my food, and I think if I did I would be able to better control my calories, not that they are out of control necessarily but sometimes it's easy to lose count.
Alright, well, I suppose I'll keep this post to my resolutions and will dedicate another post to what I had originally wanted to write about, which was my two outdoor runs with the Garmin. I'll have that up shortly, and in fact by the time I write it I should have three runs with it since I'm hoping to get in a run before 5 a.m. on Tuesday. We'll see if I make it out or not.
