Rode my bike for the first time this year. Afterwards I ran. I then spent the rest of the day doing laundry, dishes, set up the coffee machines for tomorrow morning, and vacuumed out my car. I am now ready for the shower.
I’m responsible for dinner tonight. I don’t feel like cooking. So………. I’m taking my girl out tonight!
After all the years of listening to physical fitness gurus talk about the benefits of being healthy, I’m seriously starting to feel the benefits. I am not doing any radical exercise routine, nor starving myself to death with any diet. I am simply running and doing push-ups. No cross-fit training. No Iron Man workout. No 300 physical system, etc, etc, etc.
I am feeling better, both emotionally and physically. I am eating less because I am just not as hungry and I feel fuller quicker. And I am drinking lots of water.
Oh, and the weight loss is finally showing up! I have now become too small for my 2XL t-shirts. I am back down to XL. My belt is getting to be too big for me, I’ll have to go to a 34 inch.
What really surprises me is my heart rate. I am getting a stronger heart, no doubt. I ran hard today, yet the majority of my heart rate was in the cardio range instead of the peak range.
My favorite browser, Firefox, has been acting up lately. I notice my website loads a lot slower in Firefox than in Safari. Right now I’m using Safari. I couldn’t get Fandango to work in Firefox. For some reason the seating wouldn’t load. Hence my working from Safari.
Anyway, I am now the proud owner of two seats for the 10:00 AM showing of “Spiderman: Homecoming.”
Now, if you’ll excuse me I have coffee to finish.
Black, with no cream or sugar, you sick people.
Seriously, there is something extremely wrong with you all.
The lawn, that is. Mowed. All of it. Including the front incline. Even though I finished it over a half hour ago, I’m still raining sweat. It’s running down my sides, back, and forehead. It’s collecting at the base of my throat. The shirt I was wearing was completely drenched to the point of the sweat dripping off the bottom.
Yeah, I’m feeling exhausted.
But it’s a good exhausted.
Now, if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go sit outside and let my body cool down. It doesn’t even pay to take a shower until I stop sweating.
I am waking up hard. My body is letting me know in no uncertain terms that I pushed myself a bit too hard in doing push-ups before going on the run yesterday. Oh well. I’m still working on getting into shape, not staying in shape. So I have to push myself past the comfort zone.
Anyway, I still managed to get dishes done. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for coffee.
