Day 36 – 7.1 Down 92.9 ToGo

Well, I didn’t eat fantastic this weekend, so holding steady on the weight. I suspect next week should show some loss.

Weights felt pretty good, I did get a new curl bar to help with my hand angle today. I’ll try it out Wed.

Day 35 – Take a hike.

A morning hike to tease out a little more of this trail close by. I hiked with Kelly, and we got a bit mover 2 miles before heading back for almost 4 miles total. Still trail to be explored.

This week should be a good one. Adam should stop faking his illness, so I’ll have a day time walking partner again. I need to figure out a walking route at work for days that I go into the office but can’t suffer the treadmill.

Oh I also drove the new neighborhood route I was looking at. I think it’ll be a good one, it Isa bit further than I thought, now to talk Adam into it.

Day 34 – Better

After a long week, I took a nice motorcycle ride, and plenty of sleep. Saturday worked out a lot better. I didn’t do much. Essentially this is my rest day. Which I needed I think. I looked at RV/Trailers which I am thinking about getting. I need to find out about mlicense and insuring, so maybe next weekend.

Day 33 – It started off good…

I woke up feeling better. Plenty of energy, made it through weights feeling pretty good. I’ve got enough weight on the bar to provide a bit of resistance to lift, so I like to think I am past the demoralizing bit of getting back to working out and I finished judt in time for my morning meetings.

Things looking up, until I get snide remarks out of the blue and yet another change in weekend plans. That didn’t help after such a shitty week.

Anyway, I felt good through my walk, the weather was really nice in the shade, the sun was a bit intense if you where out in it though. I took a new route. And looking at the map afterwards I think I found a new route I want to try next week. It should work out to around 2 – 2.5 miles, but I’ll need to do it when I have a bit of open time after lunch incase it’s longer than I expect. I guess I could drive it this weekend to time it out.

I took a motorcycle ride after work to clear my head. Got some thinking in, letsee how the weekend plays out.

Day 32 – when it rains, it pours.

My mood continues. I did take a walk today. Since Adam is apparently at death’s door, I am forced to listen to audio books. (How selfish of him to get sick…. psh) I started some BBC dramatization of Terry Pratchett stories. This one was most of “Mort”.

It was actually quite good. A bit tired story of “deaths apprentice / death takes a vacation”, but the voice acting was well done and the story entertaining.

Anyway, I took a Tugboat 2 mile, and added in some side streets. The walk definately started to help my mood. Though, any progress was eaten away by interacting with others.

Day 31 – A no good, awful, very bad day.

This morning weights were extremely tough. Just zero energy. I did complete the workout but just had nothing left in the tank when I woke up. Never the less

After my morning meetings, my mood soured. I got some heart breaking news, and just everything else just piled on. I did my best to mitigate it, but everything anyone said just made it worse.

I took that as a queue to skip the afternoon walk. And indulge in some emotional eating. Which of course didn’t help.

Day 30 – solvitur ambulando

“It is solved by walking.”

Dragging a bit today, but the humidity has backed off a bit, so that is good. Took a different path to add a little to the walk. Start out was difficult, I definately felt that I haven’t walked for a couple days. Though on second thought I guess I did hike a few miles Saturday… At any rate the start was a bit tough, but definately less sweaty than other walks.

Day 29 – 6.9 Lost 93.1 ToGo

How do you like that? Dispite eating poorly (quantity and content) , and missing my walk on Friday. I still lost. Oddly this is motivational…

Also today’s battle cry is “Well what the hell else is there to do!”

So, I drove up to Canton and Paddled on Allatoona for a few hours. I forget how much slow burn work paddling around is. But it felt good, the weather was near perfect. Great cap to a holiday weekend.
