Change of pace

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on July 19, 2009

The reward for 7 weeks of intensive classes is 8 weeks of peace and calm. Those days started on Friday. I celebrated by taking the day off from work and not doing much of anything. In fact, I endedup taking two seperate 1 hour naps which is pretty atypical of me. On Saturday I turned 30. I took it easy then as well, got some bar-b-q for my celebratory lunch with some bluberry pie. Today, more relaxing, a bit of chores and that was it.

Tomorrow begins a new week and a new, different period of time. With my new found free time I have one major goal in mind. Shed some of these pounds I gained while eating three meals a day away from home. I haven’t weighed myself in a while but I’m guessing 255. I’ll check tomorrow. I’m returning to Monday morning weigh ins. I’ll be eating a more normal and largely home cooked diet which is nice.

For activities, Laura and I will try to get to the Chrome and Fern 2-3 days a week and my desire it to get in a light, higher rep kettlebell workout at home on those same 3 days (if we don’t get to Chrome and Fern on Saturday I’ll jog or do a video). On the off days I’m going to try and do some yoga or z-health for about 30 minutes. Friday will be my only totally off day.
