1/1/2013 found me 4.4 lbs. lighter than 1/1/2012, for a year when I was trying to maintain. I started 2012 weighing 165. I start 2013 weighing 160.6, with a target range of 160 to 163.Yes, I know I'm low in my target range. I dipped below it (just to 159.8) 3 mornings in December. This is due to being able to run more, and probably not increasing what I eat enough. I gave my calorie range a gentle nudge upward this week, and I'll see if that's sufficient to keep me in the range.Other highlights/lowlights of 2012: The year was dominated by a foot injury that kept me from running for several months. During the period of not running, I focused more on upper body strength. Out of that focus, I rebuilt my ability to do pushups and found the ability to do pullups. For the first time in my life, I can do more than 3 pullups. The current routine is 3 sets of 15 pullups in the morning, plus 3 sets of 60 pushups, interspersed with the breakfast routine. I'm still tracking everything I eat, and adjusting the calorie range to make the weight trend move sideways. I've achieved a good sideways trend since about May 1 by doing this. While I make adjustments in 100 and 200 calorie increments, the range has moved up and down quite a bit. The target number to eat has varied from 2200 to 3000 calories per day in 2012. Right now it's on the high end, but I expect it won't stay there forever.The key macronutrient for me is still protein. I have to pay attention to get enough protein, and sometimes to get enough fat. I never have any problem eating enough carbs.Goals for 2013: Run 3 days a week. Avoid injuries. If practical subject to the prior goals, run a half marathon. Maintain a stable weight.Patzer
