2013: Not good, not bad, just meh. I'm essentially a lazy-assed bastard, so I don't like working out. For me, HIIT is ideal because it's over with quickly, but even then I struggle to keep with a program. Did do some kettlebells, and have a pull-up bar in the den that's convenient to hang clothing on. Really have to get back to them, and maybe some dumbbells, at least minimally in 2014. Not really a go to the gym kinda guy.
But my primary workout, the one I enjoy, is jogging. For whatever reason, I was pretty lax in 2013, and the idea of gearing up to run a 13.1 never materialized. But even when I'd been away from jogging for a couple of weeks, I found that getting back to it was easier now for whatever reason. My speed, strength, and lung capacity seem pretty good. I just need to be more consistent, and get back to running a few times at my lunch hour. Mrs. F. and I have a couple of routes that involve hills, some of them pretty drastic, and I've found that a great way to shake the dust off.
Weight, down almost 30# from a few years ago, has crept back up predictably, as the wine : jogging ratio has been horribly out of whack. 2014, really have to right that ratio. Cooking and diet are the constant, and I continue to avoid processed foods/convenience foods/fast foods, and incorporate mostly whole foods (locally sourced, sustainable, pastured meat and organic fruits and veggies) whenever possible. Found a great resource for wild fish too.
Pretty healthy, knock wood, save for a chest cold around Thanksgiving.
Going to start a 2014 get healthy thread later, and offer some new opinions on food and nutrition.
Some general goals, already discussed; some specific ones: lose 20#; increase running stamina and run a 13.1 before 7/27 (turn FIFTY, FFS); get to 10 pull-ups; drop the BP meds.
