Slender, slim, thin, lean, sexy...what have you, never ends. I'm slowly coming to understand that it's a state of mind. A state achieved the more mindful we are. Kind of like A New York State of Mind (Love that song) but with more benefits. In summary, didn't hit my goal of 187 but for the 2nd challenge in a row I'm lighter than when I started and that's progress. If I keep this up come Christmas folks may not recognize me. Please Santa, do me a solid :)
Minus the cam and it's 195.8 lbs.
We had a few on the WRJ & Gs team that actually hit their 5% goals. To them and every one else that made progress.
To the team leaders a very big for the goodies and motivation.
Look forward to seeing you all in the fall.
Don't know if it's the running again or just being more mindful of how much I eat but so far so good. Started off with just a mile several days ago with the goal to add about 10% in mileage every other day. Was scheduled to do 1.4 miles today but pushed a little longer for a little over 1.5. If I keep adding 10% should be up to speed (get it) for the 10K I signed up for in September.
Dang, so not the start I wanted but hey sometimes you miss before you get it. And who the heck knew that Boston Mahket made such a good apple pie?!? Also, around Thursday I stopped drinking water because earlier in the week I drank what I thought was a lot. And as weird as that sounds reducing water intake can actually drive the body to hold water not knowing where or when the next glass may be coming.
Looking forward to get to the Grand Canyon virtually and take a nice hike. Did you know at the southern rim of the Canyon it's 10 miles down! Now that's a hike. Can't you just hear all the colorful language as everyone makes their way back up. Those guides must have stories to tell :)
Missed it by THAT much. Goal was 201.4 and I came in this morning at 202.2. They say close only counts in horseshoes and slow dancing so I'll take it.
I feel confident it'll happen in the next week or two, no hurry except to get back on track with my running. I only run over 200 if my life's in danger so looking forward to getting that going again. Thanks to all the team leaders that made this round a fun one. See you all in the Summer Challenge!
