I've spent the last five days in bed. I've got pnemonia, an infection of the lungs, throat/tonsils, "sinus", and right ear. Anyway, April 1st was my 1 year anniversary with Spark... and I'm reinvigorated to continue losing weight. I'm going for another 20 pounds.
Of course, there is motivation from elsewhere too. Work is going well, and I'm actually creating relationships with co-workers. I went on a hike last week (which I shouldn't have, since I got much more sick afterwards) and of course was at the end of the group. But you know what? Someone else was slow as well, and we did it together. It was a lot of fun. The nice thing was that I thought she was stuck-up, simply because she is so pretty. She's actually very cool. I was very glad to have someone else share my un-athletic-ness.
The TC 10km is coming up, and I'm walking it, likely with several other co-workers. It's been a long time since I've actually walked that much in one stretch.
I'm also excited for when our office moves to the new location. There is a gym on-site. I haven't gone back to the gym since I left my old job. Since my old gym is right next to my old work, I haven't wanted to be put in that area of negativity. Unfortunately, it's also taken a toll on my weight-loss. (or lack thereof.) Anyway, the new building has a super fancy gym right inside, and I'm going to start going on a very consistent basis.
Our company is also doing a pedometer challenge right now. We're trying to hit 10,000 steps a day, and schedule walks at lunch 3 days per week.
This is all for now. I'm happy it's summer... the winter was pretty harsh on my enthusiasm.
