Let The Games Begin...

Today my new journey begins. Today the clean healthy eating starts. Today the running starts for 2008. Not sure how far I will go, just going to get out there and see where I stand.

My clean eating isn't as much about losing weight as it is achieving better health. I will be counting calories, fat, saturated fat, carbs, sugars, and protein. I've kinda been doing that all along just not very consistent as of the past 4 months. Well, it's back to very strict eating and calculating. It will be back to all natural mostly organic foods, lots of veggies, whole grains, and fruit. I still need to drop some weight so I will be restricting my calories for the next 6 months, need to get this holiday weight gain taken care of! I've also quit all caffeinated beverages as of today and the only liquid I will be consuming is water. Of course I still take my pharmaceutical grade multivitamins every morning as well.

First race for 2008 will be the Greenville News Rundowntown 5k on 1/26. I ran this race last year and really enjoyed it, very large race for this area at least it was last year. I will be running in as many races as I can between now and June. Once June hits my focus will be on only one race, the 26.2. I'm also starting back on a split strength training routine that I will post once I'm done setting it up.

I will not falter and I will not fail. One day at a time, one step at a time, one mile at a time! I'm going to stay disciplined and on track 100%. - Jason

Happy New Year, Jason! Make your 2008 make 2007 look like 2006! :-)

The G'ville News 5K is fun, but with big crowds and a challenging course. Great race! Go kill that thing and have a blast!

Just came across your blog and thought I'd say hello! Hopefully I'll run into you at the G'ville News run. Let's keep our fingers crossed for warmer temps than we had this past week! Made it tough to get out and get the mileage in:)
