Compared to last week this has been one very long week. I don’t mean my hours cuz they are always long, I just mean…it’s only THURSDAY? WOW, I was hoping…well only sorta cuz I really don’t want the world to pass me by or hurry up…it was Friday.
I had a few questions about my attempts at Zumba so I’ll answer them and add some. First off, I wish it was a class because I think I’d learn a bit quicker but it’s from my Wii. Second, I’m not sure I liked it or not. The songs are really different then what I’m use to listening too but the beat is excellent so I’ll adjust, not to mention I only got in like 6 songs and I’m betting that thing is almost unlimited. Third, I wonder if I’ll get coordinated enough to even do a few of the steps in time with the lady on the screen. She goes from pink to orange to green when you doing well but my girl didn’t spend a lot of time in the green. And Kristy, I did it with my daycare girls so you my dear get it out of the box and give it a whirl.
Now for another thing I found on Kristy's blog. She is doing a Run 5K in 100 days. Last night I went and check it out and it’s pretty darn neat. Now I don’t know a lot about it yet because I think this started back in March so I e-mailed Brad to see if he was still willing to teach more people how to do this. It’s 113 days until I want to run a full 5K so this would be perfect. I’m still using the C25K but something new would be cool.
Last night I went for a 2 mile run and a mile walk. I didn’t do grand but it wasn’t terrible either. I left Wilbur at home for my run and then picked him and Scout up for the walk. Wilbur wasn’t thrilled the last time I went for a run and he was with, he really just prefers the walking/trotting.
Food was good yesterday but I am craving and still want a hamburger and fries but Debbi said when we both hit our goals we’d meet half way (she lives about 125 miles from me) and find a good burger joint and get us one. I’m not sure I can hold out that long but will try.
So my plans for today are the same as yesterday except I’m just going to do some floor exercises and skip carrying water, running or anything like that. My back is really bothering me again and since the chiropractor costs money I’ll just take it easy today.
Are you reaching for your goals? Are you trying your best to get to where you want to be? With Allan's phase 6 and Debbi's Slimmer this Summer challenge I am doing my best. Slowly but surly I will be at my goal with the body I’ve wanted for the past 20 years. Nothing perfect but healthy, happy and ready to face the next 50 years of my life.
Take care everyone and have a blessed day. It was 40* when I got up this morning, I am hoping it warms back up, only two days of summer isn’t enough for me.
