Good Day Sunshine Run Page for the Scraptastic Challenge
So, to my horror, the other day Our Fearless Leader at Exercise Class announced she was bringing in calipers to measure body fat.
I have a love hate thing going with exercise. Firstly, I do love how I feel directly after I exercise it's just the rest of the 24 hours in the day...I wrote about that back in January.
Our Fearless Leader had decreed a new challenge, this one costing a bit more than the normal $5 bucks we throw into a collective pot. YES, I will be honest. I have never ever won.
It's usually based on losing weight combined with inches or something like that.
This time, approx. $400 is up for grabs and she uses that torture device, has suggested you exercise every day for 30 minutes, and track your food.
Needless to say I was a bit traumatized for a week or two or three after the measuring event.
I finally got into a rhythm by deciding to hit our trails out back. I like our woods, the quiet, the stream, and listening to some good tunes. I figured out being frustrated at work melts away as I sweat.
It's still painful. Don't get me wrong due to that earlier poetic sentence. AND SWEATY! (rolling eyes)
PLUS, it does still snow here 9 months out of the year, so we'll see whether my fair weather running still occurs during snow events....
Anyhow, I thought I'd document my run in a page with a photo of my 'droid which accompanies me so I can stream my Pandora Beatles station.
Thought I'd play along with the Scraptastic Challenge #1 this month that Pinky is hosting. Using your punches! My Martha Scallop is a common go to punch....
AND, I also planned on posting this today due to the fact we get our fat measured again tonight and she figures out a winner. ;-) YIPPEE.
Sigh. I don't plan on being the winner (again!) but I am happy to have rediscovered running. Besides, what would I do with $400....giggle sarcastically....
HAPPY HUMP DAY!!!
oh and p.s. running in my book is mostly moving with some parts walking and lots of parts of sweating...just so we're on the same page here.
