I'm happy to report that I'm back at it-- motivated to go for another 20 pounds or so. I've cut out pop and have ramped up salad intake and my exercise.
My current exercise plans are pre-training for the Austin half. Right now, I'm just trying to get my running base back after taking a couple of months off due to extreme heat. I'm run/walking every other day with my black dog. These are short runs because the heat is way too hard on her, even though we run after dark.
I'm walking the dogs a mile and a half on non-running days. I've also collected a bunch of hula hoops, so I try to take three or or four hooping breaks while I'm working. We also acquired an Xbox Kinect, so I'm playing with Zumba, Dance Central, and Kinect Adventures. (And rock band.) Trying for more active play.
As usual, I'm having trouble getting enough calories. It's a challenge. It's easy to eat too much junk, but I'm trying to avoid junk. I'm going to add in at least one smoothie a day, to try to get my calories up in a very healthy way. I'm also going to add beans to my salads.
It's good to be back!
