2 lbs. up this week and pretty much am where I want to be on this journey. No major fluctuations in caloric intake or excercise- I'm guessing I have probably leveled off into maintenence mode. I can see and feel my body firming up from the running and free weight training. The areas that do not have extra skin around them are getting chisled. It still kind of freaks me out a little to see bulging veins in my forearms where every phlebotomist I've ever met had trouble finding one in the past. I might make an appt. with a nutritionist that I have seen before to find out what my body fat % is just for ****s and giggles.
The Garmin Forerunner GPS watch is becoming quite the motivational tool for my runs.The software allows me to break everything down into mile-laps and track speed, distance, pace, grade , ascent-descent and lays the track out on a map that I can view in Google Earth. I'ts pretty cool to finish a run and instantly see your course and progress. A good toy for me!
Today's schedule consists of household chores, and a graduation party in the afternoon at the local Elks Club. I'm debating on whether or not to get another run in, I know my muscles need to recoup but my mind and energy level says screw it and go. Maybe a beach walk with the pooch is in order.
I know some folks with a labradoodle, Mike, they seem to be a pretty cool breed, and the best thing is no shedding. As much as it will be a family member, I'm guessing that it will become "your dog". Who's gonna let the dog out at 6:00 a.m. or 11:00 at night? Who will inflict corporal punishment during housebreaking? Who will get a "running buddy"? I think we all know the answer to those questions!!
Good luck you guys and have a great week!
