So I haven't posted in a few weeks and I like to think that's because nothing much has happened. The truth however is the lack of progress I've made. I have been working out almost every morning but haven't been eating like I should. They (whoever "They" is) say weight loss is 70% what you eat. Well I've been putting 30% in I guess. I currently weigh 251lb.
I missed the Fowl Fun Run this year as I really been running much. I have been traveling a lot for work and just haven't been getting my cardio in. Thats no excuse tho. I just need to buck up and go run.
Last Sunday morning I went for a ride. I wasn't so sure about going but it was awesome. I'm glad I decided to go. It was clear sky and 29 degrees out (thats -2C for you Aussies). Its was nothing special, no Downhill, no cool trails, but it was so fresh out. Everything was frosty and the frozen leaves cracked under my tires. It was one of those times where you don't want to be anywhere but right in that moment. That simple 5 mile ride reminded me of why I am doing this and to enjoy the process as well as the destination.
So yesterday was Thanksgiving. A holiday synonymous with unhealthy eating and sitting on the couch watching Football. Well, the Football happened, so did the eating, yet a little restrained this year but something else was added.
Skagit Running Club has a tradition of a fun run on Thanksgiving morning. This year we joined them. Melissa and Eliza did the 2 mile and Mom, Dad and I ran the 10k, which ended up being 5.6 miles. A good run nonetheless. It was really a great way to start the day.
So here is to starting over. I'm gonna work on eating better and it should help kick this into top gear.
Catch ya on the trails
