Well it has been forever since I posted any fitness progress here. Well it has been a while since there has been. I have gotten back in the swing of things. I made my goal of losing weight before I turned the big 45. Did I meet my exact goals. Heck no. But I lost 55 pounds. So that is good. I still have another 80-90 to go. Back I can feel a change. I used to hate exercise. In the past year I actually enjoy it. It gives my that hour of the day that is mine.
Well I have graduated to the next step. I have found that I actually like getting outdoors for my cardio. I have seasonal allergies and kind of wrote off the outdoors. But I found that getting outside seems to help. Love the cool crisp mornings. I have even cranked my 2 mile brisk walk up to a nice jogging pace. Not jogging the complete time but do a interval type course. I have even cranked a 6-7 minutes off my times. Who would ever thought that I would try to improve my jogging times. Let along jog. Not I, that is for sure.
I also spent this weekend training as an election judge for the Maryland general election. It is amazing the amount of work that "community volunteers" put into making this happen. Lots of rule. Lots of security training. Yes, we need to learn how the devices are secured (physical) and what to look for. Just in case someone tries to enhance a candidates potential.
Well until my next blog.
Also register to vote. People died for that right.
