Adventure Weekend: Ice Skating & Rock Climbing Pictures included

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have been super busy with tax season. It is tough having just one full day off a week. One month left until it is over! The extra money is nice, but I still feel like I don't have enough time to relax sometimes!

The weather was nice last weekend but then it snowed over the weekend a little bit & it is cold again! I haven't been home much to use the treadmill & I don't really want to run outside when it is so chilly! I know - excuses!

Even though I haven't ran too much besides the 5K, I am still trying to fit in exercise. I went ice skating Saturday night. It was fun even though I was scared at first! I haven't been ice skating since I was in 2nd grade? I stuck to the wall at first, but then I did better as I went! I didn't fall down either, woohoo! =)

Yesterday I went rock climbing! My two friends are members in a gym near them, and they asked if I wanted to go. At first I was thinking NO WAY! Then I was thinking.. wait why not? It would be something new to try & great exercise. I was scared at first, but I made it to the top two times. Then I tried some climbing on a different type of wall with no harness. It was scary, but I am glad I did it! Now I am feeling sore in my shoulders, forearms, and fingers! I am feeling muscles I never knew I had before!

Tuesday I have yoga again - yay. I missed last week because my legs were too sore from the 5K. I signed up for another 5K 4/27. So I have one 4/7 and 4/27! I have been wearing my new running shoes around the house, but I need to actually break them in before I run in them!

I hope everyone is doing well - sorry for slacking so much on here. I miss it! Thank you to everyone who has supported me! I still did not reach my weight loss goal yet, but I am trying to track the best I can right now!

    Color me envious! I'm blind and suffered a bad broken leg 5 years ago, so I will not even consider ice skating! Now, rock climbing may be something I do try! Awesome! So great to try new things and face fears! Keep up the awesomeness! Congrats on being in the Spotlight the other day too! You deserve it. You are an inspiration!

    I luv reading and seeing b4 and after blogs and photo's. It keeps me going. It can be done.
I have added you to my SPARK inspiration folder for getting it done.

I think the last time I was ice skating I was 7 mo preg with my youngest. She is almost 50 now. I would rather roller skate due to weak ankles. Rock climbing.....I don't think so, but U go girl. I consider myself blessed I can still walk and bike. I might try roller skating though.

U look great. The best to U as U continue your Health journey. MA

    What a fantastic weekend! I love that you are going out and trying new things. Just think of how far you have come and how you would have felt trying that when you first started losing weight. So proud of you!

    Rock climbing looks like so much fun. How long have you been doing it? Is it something you can do when you're heavier? I've always been kind of afraid to give it a try.
