I am hoping to be disciplined this weekend. My wife's birthday was yesterday, but I ate well. My son's birthday is today. Unfortunately, his hacking cough/runny nose sickness has now infected his brother and me. It hurts to cough, energy is low and I find myself wanting to snack. Guh. I was doing so well with exercise earlier in the week. Maybe I'll rally later today and get in some good workouts. For now, I am laying low, realizing that it might affect Monday's weigh-in.
But this exercise/weight loss journey is a marathon, not a sprint. I found new energy last week with my increased exercise activity. Many of you know this, but it was interesting to expericence that my energy increased, when I pushed my exercise activity. So, when I feel better soon, I'll get back to the cycling, stepping and 5K-ing.
And regarding the 5K, I am very excited to report that my daughter (BookGirl95) and son (Samson) are going to join me in my first official 5K race. It is called "Meet Me Downtown" in Tucson next Saturday night. Though I will push myself on my normal runs, I will just enjoy this race experience with them, regardless of our speed. I don't want to be urging "let's go faster", if they are not having fun. They still find it a bit shocking to see their couch-potato father actually exercising. :-)
So, I'm off to find Kleenex and maybe some vapo-rub. Have a good weekend, friends.
