So, I can't believe it, but I'm doing good. This weekend was full of fun adventures!
I ran/walked the Kemah Bridge! I ran 90 seconds, walked 60 seconds, and I did that 25 times which equals a total of 62.5 minutes of exercise! I crossed the bridge 4 times total. The total distance was 3.8 miles.
Here is a nice menacing picture of it.
And get this! It was a BLAST! It was beautiful too! I got to see the sunrise and there were pelicans flying all over the place and there were lots of people there running and biking. I kept thinking, "Man these people are CRAZY! But that must mean I'm crazy because I'm here too." And that made me feel like a bad ass :)
Yes, I felt very accomplished and I will definitely be back for more.
Sunday morning Helen and I rode out to a farmer's market called Froberg's. Was a 26.2 mile ride all together. I bought; grapes, an apple, an small sugar-free apricot pie, granola, trail mix, and some blackberry preserves (which I made a peanut butter & jelly sandwich with today for lunch. Can't wait to try it). It was really beautiful out there. Next weekend we are going to up the mileage a bit and ride out to Twin Lakes, which is a scuba training lake where you can also do open water swimming. I'm very excited! It feels great to spend time outside!
Last, but not least, Friday Aaron texted me and said, "Are you going to get me a present?" I know this sounds random, but it is just how we operate. So, I'm trying to think of some fun and small gift, and it just so happened I was at Academy. We have been talking about trying Tennis for a while, so I got a couple of rackets and tennis balls. Let's just say he was pretty surprised :) Well, Sunday afternoon we tried them out. There is a tennis court right by our apartment and we spend about 30 minutes trying to hit the ball back and forth. He had played tennis when he was younger, but I have literally never held a racket. Still, it was lots of fun and definitely a good workout! What is even better is Aaron said he'd like to try and do that in the evenings on the weekdays! I am so excited to do something outside and active with him!
Hot 100 Update
Going the distance from Houston, Texas to New Orleans, LA - Doing okay. My mileage is inching along, and I really like that part of my challenge. Almost to the town of Vintan, LA on a map. I'm pretty sure I'll be to Lake Charles by Friday!
Getting into a size 14 - I am feeling thinner. My pants don't seem to be as tight as they were a couple of weeks ago.
Situps - OMG, I am TERRIBLE! I keep thinking I'll do to them and I haven't done a single one!! That's it, tonight I WILL do them. Every day this week. I just need to get started then I know I'll do it every day.
