Summer has Ended

Monday, September 03, 2012

I've been MIA from Spark people for the month of August but it was all because of two words "Summer Vacation". Now just because I've been away from SP doesn't mean I haven't been active or keeping up with my eating habits. (Although I have been a bit relaxed I haven't lost sight of my ultimate goal.)

Since tomorrow I will be back to work and my normal weekly schedule. I have decided to make some new goals for myself, and make a formal commitment by blogging about them.

This month I have set a goal to complete 4 days of working out and to commit to tracking my food.

I thought today I would share what exactly I had been up to on my summer vacation.

What I did on my Summer Vacation
1) Completed a 4K non competitive race (just under 40 min)
2) Attempted to complete a 7K race but was only able to do half. :(
3) Finally able to run half a mile without stopping because of training.
4) Hiked a trail in the Dolomiti Mountains (route 52)
5) Got on a bike, (something I haven't done in 15 years) and BIKED 44 kilometers from Italy to Austria (27 miles)
6) Shot a rifle at the Biathlon stadium and knocked 3 pegs down
7) Petted Ponies
8) Petted Goats
9) Petted cows

At the Rental Bike Place- preparing for our journey

Petting a Pony

Hiking on a trail in the Mountains, unprepared but doing it for fun anyways.

Biathlon Stadium, Shooting a Rifle... I knocked 3 down.

I've included a few photos from my summer vacation in today's post.
Somethings that are keeping me motivated to push forward are this.

Looking to Fall ( My Running Route at Sunset)

1) I am less than 5 pounds away from my first goal which is 20 pounds loss
2) I am less than 10 pounds away from moving OUT of the obese BMI index and into the Overweight BMI index scale.
3) I have lost 10% of my body weight.
4) I am working on losing another 12 pounds by Halloween.
