"Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death."--Anais Nin
It is now time for a new state of being. This winter I have some specific goals that will require that I change my current obsession with running. It will involve a more global approach to my everyday living and exercise. So far, I have not been paying very close attention to my nutrition. I have kind of been watching what I eat, but not very strictly. That is about to change. One of my goals is to reach a goal weight of 195 pounds. That will require about 30 pounds of weight loss. I also want to build my overall strength, specifically my upper body strength. For the first time in my life I am going to engage in weight training.
So, my workouts will consist of weight training, short intense aerobic sessions and just so I can feed my need for running I will be taking a long run (about 5 miles) each week. I want my running fitness to be up to the challenge of running a 10K.
So here goes, tomorrow is a new start to a different state.
