So far the new year is going well. In the first week I ran 32 miles and kicked my conditioning up a notch. Saturday morning I did 75 burpees in just under 20 minutes. That isn’t much to brag about, but that was only the second time I’d done burpees. They are an excellent all around exercise and I can’t wait to do more.
Tomorrow is the final weigh in for the “Maintain not Gain” program at work. The idea was to maintain your weight from just before Thanksgiving until now. As of today I was down four pounds. This is the first time I can recall where I wasn’t heavier after new year’s than I was before Thanksgiving. I’m on a team with three co-workers. If combined we don’t gain more than 8 pounds then we are entered in the drawings for prizes. One of the prizes is 6 months membership at NIFS. There may be bonus prizes for those who lost weight. God is good.
