Here We Go Again
Wednesday, October 19, 2016
I cannot believe we are already moving on to week seven of the BLC. I'm down 4.7 pounds, which means I have 3 weeks to lose 3.3 pounds in order to reach my goal. I know it can be done, but I wish I had done better during the first six weeks, sheesh!
Yesterday I spent a good deal of time cleaning my basement. We don't have a finished basement in our house, but have tons of exercise equipment. My hubby does a lot of weight lifting, and somehow we've acquired lots of pieces over the years. I used to lift very regularly, and I know it's something that I need to get back into for many reasons, but for some reason, it's the hardest thing for me to work into my routine. I figure with cleaning up the basement some, it will be a bit more inviting.
My son turned 16 last Friday and passed his driving test, YAY! Just a little less running around I have to do. I didn't know how I would feel on his first excursion out on his own, but we both did fine. I wasn't nervous at all. I think I know he is such a responsible kid that I just trust him. That being said, I do realize he is 16 and sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to 16 year old behavior, so I still prayed while he was out
I have a friend who has been texting me regularly regarding her workouts. She is planning to do a full Ironman next September, and wants to be accountable with her workouts. It is getting me thinking about how little I am doing lately. Not that I would ever consider a full Ironman, but I might be up for training for a spring or Olympic distance triathlon next summer. I keep saying I want to get back in the pool, but I'm all talk and no action there. Maybe it's time for me to act, right?!
Fall colors are really starting to pop around here. I feel like it will be peak colors this weekend, if not already a little past. I hope the weather cooperates and we are able to get out and enjoy it! I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their week, and has a lovely weekend coming up!
