So, How's That "Back In My Groove" Thing Working Out?

Short answer: Great

And now for the longer answer...

I'm feeling good about what and how I'm doing. I'm getting back in a routine and hitting my daily goals. So far, so great.

But let's talk about those goals, because I've made some very specific changes. First, I've changed my Daily Step goal from 10,000 down to 5,000. That might seem counter-intuitive, since I'm supposed to be making my physical fitness MORE of a priority. But there's a method to my madness.

I changed my goal down because I am going to focus more on strength training, and I don't want to obsess every day about missing steps. And on my running days, I will more than cover the daily goal of 5,000.

Does that make sense? I mean, why set myself up for failure by having a large step goal on days I am planning on focusing on strength training? It just gives me an excuse to fail elsewhere, too.

Results

I'm happy with how things are going so far. I've hit nearly every goal for the last five days. And after today's four mile run, I expect I'll hit every goal today, too.

This feels good.
