#GetFitStayFit2020: Yes, this is an accountability blog

My story is all too common.  I work hard and meet a fitness/weight loss goal only to blow it in a few months by enjoying everything I didn’t eat during my “diet” period.  The  pattern is getting old.

These blogs highight that pretty well:

In 2020, I’m going to try and be consistent. I’m not going to clean eat for a month or two; I’m going to effort 11 months of the year. 

I’ve always enjoyed competing against myself.  And although this doesn’t seem fun or easy, I need to prove to myself that I can do it.

After plenty planning (and second thoughts), here’s the plan:

Nutrition 

January

  • Whole 30

February – November 

  • Focus on whole foods, nothing processed or fried 
  • No dairy 
  • Limited sugar (fruits) 
  • Limited carbs (no bread or rice, potatoes ok)
  • 1 weekly cheat meal w/ craft beer 
  • 2x/week low-carb alcohol (2 drinks max) 

Fitness

Full year

  • 5x/week: Morning runs of at least 2 miles
  • 4 half marathons 
  • 5x/week:  Weight training 
  • New PRs in key lifts  

I usually gauge my progress by what shows up on the scale.  In this case, it’s all about sticking to the plan. If I can be consistent, I have no doubt the results will be there — and perhaps I can craft a new lifestyle leading into 2021.

I saw a great quote the other day: “Be the kind of person that makes other people want to up their game.”  I can’t do that if my game isn’t where it needs to be.

Challenge accepted! Let’s #GetFitStayFit2020!
