19 Days To Go

Tuesday, August 02, 2016

Baby Girl talked me into walking an untimed 5K this month. Of course, she talked me into it months ago, but time is getting short, and with the weather, I’ve not been walking. No excuses. I have a gym membership and I could easily have taken my aching knees to the local treadmill. It was a lovely 77 F at lunch time today and the knees weren’t feeling badly at all, thank you very much, so I headed out at lunch time. 75% humidity made it awfully sticky and I finished at 1.7 miles. Just over halfway to 5K. Not an awful pace for walking, if I can keep it up for twice that far. The only upside is that I was talking to my Baby and it seems that she’s going to be less ready than me. Even so, fun should be had by all. There will be pictures.
I looked at myself in the mirror after my lunchtime stroll, and realized that the clothes are getting kind of baggy. My post-Arizona weight loss has continued. I’m almost afraid to count on it, but the evidence is plain. Scale and non-scale agree. Casey, I think you’re right and it’s time to break out the tape measure. That’ll be tonight if I get time after my homework is done. Just because my life isn’t exciting enough, I enrolled in a six-week, one credit course at a college of my choice.
