The Competition

Damn if this competition isn't going to take forever. GRR.

I'm at 129. I'm down a total of 4.

I'm not dwelling on it too much as I'm seeing improvement in other areas. In the gym today, I was running and started out at 8 minute miles, a far cry from my original 12 minute miles. Of course 15 minutes into it, I thought my heart was going to explode out of my body or my lungs were burning to ashes with every breath. I upped it to 10 minutes a piece and stopped after 30 minutes.

I'm almost back to where I was, so this is good.

I walked past a mirror today and could see my hamstrings look defined again. It startled me as it was a glance and then a double take for me. So I consider that progress.

One day at a time...

Yay Bou!! That's great.

Oh God, running?!? I'm scared to even attempt!

You keep going! You are doing great. Besides it keeps me going as well. ;-) Remember I mentioned another prize for taking it off... think 'Kitchen shop'.
