Well, today part of my vision has come true. I am featured in the Atlanta Journal Constitution Health and Fitness Section as a Success Story! Here is the link to the online version and I am on my way to the grocery store to pick up several hard copies of the paper. I guess it is time for me to update my vision board!
As far as working out goes, I have been pretty lazy. I ran 8 miles on Saturday and my poor feet are once again blistered. On Monday I was in Los Angeles and had the opportunity to work out with the EA SPORTS Active 2 and I have to say I cannot wait until the November release date! As most people know, I used EA SPORTS Active More Workouts to kick start my weight loss program and honestly I attribute much of my success to EA and their continued support of my efforts.
I only worked about for about 10 minutes with the game and yesterday and today I am still feeling it. Gerard, the fitness trainer for EA developed a customized workout for me that primarily focused on strength training for my lower body and clearly it worked! I have sore muscles (in a good way) and will be firing up my More Workouts so that I can work on building muscle that I’m sure will help prevent injury and keep my hip in shape. I know that I should be strength training but my experience with EA just drove the point home.
As far as checking in for Shrinkvivor, the scale is down from last week, I am at 152.4 - I knew that the water weight would be gone! So, I continue in maintenance mode this is a good place to be. I can hardly believe that the Nike Women’s Half Marathon is only 25 days away. Of course, I am planning my next event and I think it will be the Zooma Women’s Half Marathon the first week of November. After that the Disney Princess Half-Marathon the weekend of my birthday in February.
Keeping these goals in mind help me continue my exercise and training. I love having something to work for and of course the medals at the end of each race provide me with a sense of accomplishment!
