I missed the whole month of February? Wow. Guess I was just living life and not spending copious amounts of time online. We went camping twice in February, once to Mountain Lakes and once to Rancho Jurupa Park. We had a lot of fun at both places. We even brought the bikes to Rancho Jurupa Park.
We signed up for a 5k taking place on 3/30 so I started my run/walk exercise again. The neighbor a few houses away actually came over one night and asked for some advice on how to get started. Since I haven't done any run/walking training for awhile so I am back to the beginning. I probably stopped around the holidays and when it started getting cold and dark in the mornings. The neighbor and I went out on Tuesday and Thursday together and I am actually coaching him. The family and I went out for a run today. It felt good to get back out there and feel like I actually am accomplishing something. I have a month to train before the 5k. I hope to add in some strength training too. I really have my eye on a 5k obstacle course called Foam Fest in August, but the Southern California area doesn't have a location yet so I don't know if I'll be able to do it or not. I need to strength train if I hope to be any good at it. I would love to get rid of some of my sagging arms. I might be able to take flight with them so are so floppy. Not a pretty site.
I am currently at 192.4. I have been down to 188.6. Those few pounds were easy to come back. The 188.6 only lasted about a day and it seems my body is quite happy around 192. I am NOT happy with this weight though. I have work to do and I just need to buckle down and do it. The Shrinking Jeans challenge ended and I didn't even check in on the last weigh in because I started at 194.6 I think, got down to the 188.6 and then came back to the 192.4. Turns out I lost 2 pounds during the challenge. Pretty sad. I only have myself to blame though. A cookie here or there and it adds up. I must change this behavior....
I CAN DO IT!
