Stationary Rowing

Monday, October 15, 2012

I have a feeling that getting outside and into a kayak is MUCH more exciting and fulfilling than doing it indoors at a gym with a fish game on the screen in front of you! I have a friend who kayaks, and she is very, she teaches classes for the state dept. of natural resources. She has offered to loan me one of her kayaks so I can go out with her and try it, but I'm hip-deep in school and taking care of the family, so 4 months have gone by since that offer and it hasn't happened. :/ Maybe next summer.

Last night I started writing down a few goals for 2013. Yikes, it's almost here!!! There are 2 triathlons I want to do, a half marathon, and maybe 3 century rides. Dan is cringing at the thought of all those fees, but he wants me to do it and he wants to be supportive. Ugh I can't wait to pay off all this debt so we can live again!!! Anyway, maybe by the time we get our income tax refund, it will be more acceptable to pay $75 per triathlon and $60 per race and $30 per bike ride. And maybe I'll even be able to spend an extra $10 to get the shirt!

My food is still doing really well. I'm really kicking the bad habit of eating crap right now! I've always done a good job of getting good balanced meals, but eating in between has been full of garbage in the past. I'm 2 weeks of eating clean right now, and in the past 3 days I haven't even needed to eat between meals. However, I did have an apple after b-fast yesterday because I knew I wouldn't make it to lunchtime on what I had.

Not much else is happening. I did ST this morning and got a good workout. My leg muscles are sore from running yesterday, and I could feel it on a couple of my exercises today, even though I usually concentrate on upper body when I ST. I did not make it to the "guys" section though. Still too intimidating. However, the 15-lb. dumbbells are still plenty challenging for most of my exercising, so I still have some time before I need to work on my nerve. ;) I hope y'all have a great week.

    I want to learn to kayak. I didn't make it this year. Maybe next summer, as you say!

    15 lbs?!?!?!? I'm not even up to 5 - you're doing great! Of course, I could do strength training on a regular basis - that might help me get past the 3 pounders. I did try to helpt he hubby get the tractor/mower unstuck this weekend and I'm feeling it still. That was Saturday. Today is Monday. The arm soreness is worse today than yesterday. Oh well.

You are awesome! And those sounds like some terrific goals. Keep up the great work!
