2010 in review.

Finally some follow through on the big goal established in 2009 (lose weight and get back into shape). I’m not where I want to be yet but I’m much happier with where I am at. I recorded a low of 185.2 (currently up from there, but still under 190).

Combined with the ~80ish miles of run/walk I had before my nike+ (which was my awesome birthday present from Mike and Sonja), I ended up with around 275miles in 2010. I’ve already set the 2011 goal at 365 miles, no walking. We’ll see how that goes.

I plan to do monthly running challenges with the stakes of a lunch meal bought by the loser with Sonja in 2011 (which I have not told her, we’ll see how that goes over…) The trial run of that motivation in December seemed to help. Nike says I won, but she insists she has 22+ unsynced miles and won. I suppose I’ll trust her this time. If anyone else wants in, just friend me on nike+ (zombiefooddan).

Fast food was almost completely eliminated in 2010. I did probably eat that junk 1-2 times a month, but all in all much better. Now if only I could kick this pizza addiction. I have a couple friends on the celiac diet, but eliminating grains is not really something that appeals to me. Too much love for french toast.

I acquired a new phone in the fall. A Droid X. I like it. The latest updates to navigation and maps have been big improvements (a.k.a. they are usable now). It’s a bit of a step up from my Razr. Though honestly my only issues with the Razr were texting was a pain and being 4 years old it’s 3rd battery wasn’t the greatest anymore. (I picked up 2 razr batteries on the extreme cheap a few years ago. Occasionally it’s useful to have one of the the most popular phones in the world.)

Work was… interesting and at times frustrating this year. I don’t like to blog about it, maybe I’ll recap it some in the future. I’ll be on my 3rd boss in 3 years as of tomorrow. Hopefully that goes well. Looking to not have a repeat of 2009 and 2010 where I have a combined ~650 hours of uncompensated overtime to help them meet project time-lines that I never seem to get to have realistic input on. I love the people I work with and what I do but sometimes I really hate how I end up having to do it. I am gaining an appreciation for good project managers at least.

So that’s 2010. Lighter. More runny. A little passive aggressive.

See you in 2011.

    Glad to see you’ve been getting solid use out of the Nike Plus. Looks like you’ve used it for a decent amount every month since you got it. Well done.

    A free lunch every month? You’re on! :)

    And just for the record, I did win December’s challenge. It’s not my fault Nike+ hates me. Despite what your screen shot shows, I had 30 miles logged. If I knew how to post an image to your comments, I’d show you my run history.

    It’s a bummer that the mileage isn’t syncing to my challenges, but on the funny side, I got to watch a video about how I’d been “owned.”

    Sadly you are probably correct about me losing every month, but at least it will help keep you motivated. :)
