Life is Good

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Maintaining my weight loss, enjoying my exercise. Floating along over and under 20% body fat which works well for me given it's not bikini season.

Spending a lot of 'energy' on decluttering and housework. Now that exercise is habit, I need to see if I can make keeping house habit. I detest housework. I doubt I will ever enjoy it (like I do exercise) but I DO enjoy a clean and orderly house. That's my focus!

Happy to report that I'm regularly running 5K in under 30' on the treadmill now. Working on speed so I do some intervals at 7MPH and, just today, started doing some at 7.5MPH. It will be warm before I know it!

Last weekend DH and I started a batch of wine at a local shop where you make wine on the premises and then we went out to dinner at a new restaurant 'in town'. It was very nice. We have reservations for The Melting Pot next weekend. This weekend we're going to do more 'family date' type stuff.

    Good to hear life is going well. I, too, am decluttering, cleaning ( which has never been my thing). Yet it feels good to get it done. Learning that the more I get rid of, the more time I have for what matters to me.

    Congrats! I have to agree on the housework thing - I'll never enjoy it, but I like the results enough to power through!

    It's so good when it all clicks into place. I hope it stays that way for you for a long, long time.

    I too am working on decluttering my home. I don't know why I find it so hard. I made some real progress about six weeks ago, but have been a little stuck for a while. Time to get back to it. Congratulations on your running progress. My goal is to increase my speed this year. I hope to complete a 5K under 30 minutes. I have been doing some speed training on the treadmill but haven't got the consistency down in that area yet.

    It's awesome to read an update, especially when the news is good. I am looking forward to a return to maintenance, and see your blogs as an example of where real-life and balance have a place.
