Catching up

I tried to make a commitment to write at least one blog post a week… and I failed. Oh well, my commitment to the Paleo diet is still going well. I am still training for upcoming races, but am finding it difficult to keep up with my weight lifting.

My weight has remained constant since the last post on March 1, so that is encouraging. I think it means that I am where my body wants to be. The stretched out skin from years of my weight fluctuating up and down is beginning to shrink, and I know this will take time and real effort on my part to make the extra time I need to do my strength training. I did slack off the last two weeks as I was tapering for the Bataan Memorial Death March marathon at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico (race report to follow). Now, it’s time to ramp things back up… Hog’s Hunt 50k is on April 16, and FANS 24 hour is on June 4-5.

My exercise activity since the last workout post on February 27: I have walked 61.4 miles, and done a mere 3 weight lifting workouts. I am not going to make any excuses for not getting the ST done, I promise to do better.

So, one of my friends asked me for a picture. I promised to post an updated picture as soon as my weight got below 150 pounds. Well, I am now 148, so I figured I would oblige.

Took this photo in the restroom mirror at work this morning. As you can plainly see, there is still a jelly roll over my jeans, but I KNOW in time, most of that will disappear too. As long as I stick with Paleo, that is. And do my best to find a way to do some weight lifting. I have started to do a little, but since I have the tendency to OVERDO everything... I must be careful not to injure my back.

That is all for now.
