Update to my Fitness progress

For this month, I am off of work on Thursdays and Fridays and it is cool, I prefer to have my weekends. I am finally going to try Almond Butter so, if any of you have a recipe that involves Almond Butter don’t be afraid to send it my way. I will also check out some recipes via Pinterest. My knee has been bothering me these past couple of days so I chose to do some low impact cardio by hopping on the Eliptical for 40 minutes with lots of resistance. I alternated in 2 minute intervals with resistance levels of 10 and 15. Let me tell you my glutes feel tight. I ended my workout session with an upper body circuit I introduced in my previous blog. I think I need to buy some gloves. Preferably Purple! I have a post for everyone, I have been putting in work on my tummy and it is looking better week by week. I have to watch my carbs, because I become bloated easily. Aging at it’s finest. Check me out!

Oh, and of course I need to end my post with my adorable dog Gizmo. Took him to the dog park and had him chase his frisbee until the end of time.

5K Dream Deferred…

Remember that 5k I was supposed to run in on Saturday? Well, that dream was deferred  Anyone who lives in the Houston, TX area knows how bad parking is in the Medical Center and how confusing that can be. Poor planning on my part resulted in me circling the 5k route for a good 30 minutes. I was unable to find the designated parking place, and opted to just run by my apartment at the wonderful park up the street. 5k timed or not, I could still get my 3 mile run in. As I exit to go to the park, rain pours down. Dream absolutely differed. I opted for an Ihop Swiss Mocha instead.

I cannot be mad, all I can do is look forward to the next 5k or take on my running adventures around my apartment and local park. This will not get me down and like I said it’s deferred, like a student loan payment ha ha! My knee got some movement on the elliptical today. I think I will stick with the elliptical until it gets a little bit stronger. It hyper-extended a few times, but minus the pain! This is progress.
