Over 110,000 pounds pushed, pulled, and pressed!

Published July 2, 2013 by Susan Woodward

You read that right, baby!  Since I began my training at the YMCA at the end of March, I have logged in over 110,000 pounds!   And that doesn’t even touch the cardio work I’ve done, too.

Soooo…the problem is that the scale isn’t reflecting what I believe it should be.  And for all I am doing, I SHOULD have lost more weight than I have.

I know, I know… muscle is more dense than fat.  Blah, blah, blah.   I at LEAST want my number to begin with a number 1 for heaven’s sake!  All in good time I guess.

The good news is that I feel great!  And I am eating better!  And I am STILL not smoking!  And I am not perched on the couch all the time!

Oh, yeah.  And I am going to run for my life!

It seems that the Color Run and Run For Your Life are both on the same day… August 17th…and I had to make a choice.  My friend, Jeanette, is already signed up for the Zombie run, so I decided to join in!  It’s also a bit closer to home and they have Color Runs more frequently in the area, so I can pick up one of those soon.

And the Zombie Run is also an obstacle course!  Time to get my strength up!  I already know that my adrenalin will be pumping because the incentive to run is being chased by zombies.  I only hope that I don’t freak out as they come after me…that could get ugly.

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAOrrrrr…I could sign up to be a zombie!!  How fun would that be!  I still have my “bloody” clothes from when I was “far away zombie #419” in my first film, The Final Night and Day, so I have a costume, and these folks provide the make-up.  Hmmm… and I could also run as well.   A running zombie.  Well, that’s not very Romero-ish!  More like 28 Days Later, but they weren’t zombies!  Of course, I have heard that the zombies in World War Z run like the wind, so maybe that’s the angle for this race…but nothing beats the slow menacing zombies of the Night of the Living Dead!

Wow…I learned a lot about zombies from a previous relationship.

Either way, this is a far cry from what I was doing six months ago… plopped on the couch with a pack of smokes a day.  What a difference, and I love it!!  🙂
