First Run of 2010!
Chart taken from Nike+ website after sync. Click here to see how I did it.

Look at that! The Nike+ returns! I got a replacement for Christmas and I broke it in today on the 5K resolution run in Baltimore.

It was seriously my first real run in months. Since the marathon I haven’t had any desire to get out there like I was. I have to admit, It was tough, I felt out of breath, out of shape and now I’m SORE! In a good way. :)

Besides the run I had some serious family time this morning. The little guy and I wrestled, made breakfast and invented a few new family games. The husband had breakfast with us and we all headed out to run a few errands before the race.

After the 5k we made a good dinner and then the husband and I paid all the end of year bills, getting our finances in order.

It was a good, productive, fun day. The best kind.

Right now I’m exhausted and I need to take a shower before bed. So I’ll be cutting this short. I’ll leave you with my menu. I’m making an effort to get back to basics. I was considering counting points again but I want to trust myself and follow my instincts. My mantra this week is to eat when hungry and make good choices. It should be that easy, right? :)

Food Units
1 egg 2 egg white omelet loaded with extra veggies and a bit of bacon bite. that’s how i start the new year! :)
leftover bertucci’s – a chicken breast with 2 shrimp and some green beans
5k resolution run – 30 min #activity #tep
apple after my run #tep
dinner: balsamic dijon chicken tenders, sweet potato fries & sugar snap peas
oh! and i ate the potato skin from the husband’s baked potato. :)
yogurt cup poured over frozen strawberries, defrosted a bit in the microwave… such a yummy treat!
Total: N/A

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    That’s great! I think that the funk phase is leaving out

    I would love to see the recipe for the balsamic dijon chicken tenders, but for some reason the link doesn’t work.

    Sounds like you had a great day!

    Im hoping to try out my new Nike+ stuff tomarrow – if the damn wind dies down… it will blow me away!

    I’m getting a new nike+ too! I lost mine this summer and my running took a hit.

    But it’s a new year.. new year!!

    here’s to many wonderful runs.

    Congrats on getting a run in on the first day! Today was a DOR for me but I’m going to get out there tomorrow! I loved my Nike+ but after I used it in a race and noticed how horribly off it was, I stopped using it.
    My fave toy is my Garmin 305.
    Have a great sleep!

    Good work on the first run of the year! I got a Nike+ for Christmas (from hubby) and I’m looking forward to using it. I had ITB/knee problems for about 6 months last year so I need to take it slowly.

    I’m going back to basics with my eating too, I’ve gotten a bit off track!


    January 2, 2010

    Too, bad nike+ took a dump already! We are all getting back to the basics this new year, aren’t we?! Happy New Year!


    January 2, 2010

    Congrats on the run! I hope to take up running in 2010.

    Julie – I fixed the the links! Thanks for letting me know!

    Congrats on the run! I really want a Nike+, but I need to start running before I get one, haha.

    Wow I need to get one of those Nike+ things. Looks way cool. Way to get back into it! It’s tough I know. I run for 10 out of the 20 mins on the treadmill and I’m hating life. But afterwards, it feels so good!

    Sounds like you started the new year off right! Glad you had a great,family filled day!
