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.
Orrrrr…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!! 🙂
