Well happy Thursday before a holiday weekend everyone! I hope everyone is planning to have as a great a weekend as I hope to. Scuba diving on Saturday with the boy. I would promise pictures but the water is pretty murky with about 10 feet of viz, I am not sure how they would turn out. This should be a nice set of tune up dives before I leave for Sarasota in 3 weeks. This time in 3 weeks I will be somewhere along I75 on my way down. Looking forward to a week of diving and bike riding with the boy and sunning myself. Maybe I will finally warm up since I seem to have issues with that since losing the weight.
On a great note, I can actually see my belt buckle in the mirror. The stomach no longer swallows it up by hanging down. I am wearing an XL button down shirt today and it doesn’t pull at the buttons across the tummy. Talk about an awesome feeling! Well it does pull a little when I am sitting down, but that doesn’t count, lol. I figure it is enough improvement to see my belt and have the shirt hang right when standing that I am extremely happy. My shirts no longer have 2 X’s on them! Next step is to get down to no X’s. Wish I could do the circle with a line through it with an X in the middle. I guess I could draw one and scan it.
I am almost at 2 weeks straight of doing some form of cardio every day. It is showing my fitness tracker as I seem to surpass a new marker every couple days. It feels great and while those changes are not always easy to see I am sure I am making progress. I kept the bike on setting 14 or 15 as a base last night for my entire 60 minute ride of steady cardio. I remember when I was lucky to keep it at level 8! Tonight will be another good test, tonight is interval night. So it will be a good workout.
Anyway, I still have trouble getting over how good things are going with the diet changes and how great I am feeling overall. I know I am needing more sleep and getting to be a little earlier than normal but this is normal I am sure since I am getting a lot more active than I have been in a long time.
So, have a great weekend. I will post some pics of the diving if something looks good, but from this trip, I am not promising anything. lol
