Talk about a WIN!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Now this is what I call a win. I was wondering how I was going to get a workout in this Saturday. I am going scuba diving in a local quarry but it is a couple hours away. We were all going to dive, then clean up and get dinner. I was figuring I would need to get up extra early and go for a walk before hand since I know I wouldn’t want to walk later after all that. So, just on a whim I looked up scuba diving on the exercise tracker. Assuming a 50 minute dive it would be like 900 calories burned! Shoot, that’s more than I get on the bike!! That is awesome! Talk about a happy man, I get to do something I love and burn lots of calories doing it? Figure we will be doing 2 dives about that long, heck yes! I was worried about exercising on the dive trip to Florida, I will be riding my bike around there, but won’t be worrying quite as much now.

Well, I hope the weather cooperates tonight for a walk otherwise I am pretty much out of luck for getting any kind of a workout in. I had hoped to get an hour in on the track while tennis camp is going on. I am holding out hope it may clear out by then, but at the same time, I have been doing something for 10 days straight. Not that I am really feeling rundown. I actually feel pretty good, but a forced rest day isn’t always a bad thing. So we shall see what the day brings weather wise. At any rate it won’t be anything compared to Oklahoma.

So, I bought me some new workout duds online. I was actually able to order the XL of everything. Kind of exciting to be coming out of XXl. Nice feeling.

Anyway, not much today. Not feeling like being at work or in front of a computer even though there is no escaping it. Might have to find something else to occupy my time.

    Getting into a smaller size is such a great reward.

    Well, I am not really sure why I gripe about going out in the rain to exercise. Cause I get so nasty sweaty at the gym and it is literally dripping from my clothes and I can get any wetter in the rain. That said, it is the cold rain that I don't like. Plus, tennis would be canceled so I would just take the time to spend with the kiddos. I have ridden my bike for about 45 miles in the rain before. I will do it if it starts raining while I am out, but hate starting in the rain.

    That's awesome about the calorie burn! And I used to laugh at the rest of the country not doing exercise in the rain since it rains so much here. After being in Florida with the torrential down pour on part of our vacation, and with it being tornado season, I don't blame you guys a bit!
