Trying AGAIN to post a blog from my recent trip to the west coast.
Most of the pictures I want won't load.
Biked across the Golden Gate Bridge.
The perspective at twelve miles an hour is totally different from 35-50 mph.
Moral of the story: On your next vacation, find a way to see the sights with people power.
Quick blog because I have to get to Zumba this morning
My main goal this month was to lose 5 lb and get to Onederland.
I wanted the 5 lb to be all fat, not muscle.
I did not QUITE reach Onederland... this month.
BUT I use a Tanita scale and my percent body fat dropped
That calculates to over 20 lb of body fat. I'll take it!
I lost about an inch from my waist and a half inch from my hips.
I also was able to go a mile faster - from 16 minutes to 13:18
So making plans for July and expecting continued progress!
It's been a struggle, but I am now on track.
I have been going to the gym, especially enjoying a circuit training class that challenges me and has lots of supportive people who are regulars.
(Silent scream here - lost my blog and had to start over)
Cut to the basics
Monday - weigh in and FITN test on elliptical, qi gong
Tues - circuit training
Wed - qi gong and mindfulness
Thurs - circuit training
Friday - yoga
Sat - Galloway training runs when possible
Sun - Core work and recover from Saturday run
I plan to
-get into the pool at least 4 times this month.
-lose at least 5 lbs of fat and never weigh 200 lbs again in my life
-aim to have a spark streak of morning exercise
-make meals at home at least 4 days a week, having planned my meals for the month
-drop a dress size (which means getting back into the dresses in my closet)
To start June off with a bang, I walked to the local store and bought some twine.
Then I came home and converted my elliptical into a desk! Now I have "no excuse" - I can Spark on the computer while exercising.
You'd be proud of how sweaty I got today.
Family reunion is right around the corner, in July. I'm determined.
Will keep you posted!
