199 and Counting

Hey Groovy Guys and Groovy Gals,
Remember? It was 100 days ago when I did my 299 post. Well, now it's time for the 199 post.

Ok, I've been really good about, let's see, running. I've done just about as many miles as I've wanted to, and when my body said, "Back Off" Jack, I've done so.

I was doing really well at going to the gym, but I haven't been in three weeks (bad boy, bad, bad, boy!)

No walky/runny to school :-( This is just adjustment not laziness, because 1- I still have Harley, and he needs to go out before I get home. 2- I am coaching track, which while fun- I wasn't planning on doing. 3- I've been taking Ali to afterschool activities almost everyday, it's travel season for her mommy.

Back on the plus side, my diet has been very good! I haven't touched meat or fried foods (hey, we're not counting 1st Watch taters as fried food are we?) since May. (Well cept for a burger after Kettle in June and one after Vermont in July.) Can I tell you? this has been easy. I believe I'll keep this lifestyle even after the Grand Slam (if you just thought of Denny's we need to work on your diet next!)

So, for the next 199 days, what do I need to do campers?

Don't worry about running to work, not going to happen!
Go to the gym, it's gotta happen!
Remember to take a little time off, no bragging, it's just the way it is, I'm in 100 mile shape right now, and I'm itching to race, but that would be stupid. Now is time to strenghten. Also, it might be fun to go on date and stay up past 8:30 PM!
Most importantly, remember my resolution to be top pop (Chase helped me with the verbage!)

I'm really glad you're getting extra time with your Ali-girl. I know it starting getting easier for me when "had to" became "get to". No multi-tasking with da kids or you're both miserable. But, you already knew that. Oh, and congrats on the running, too.

Yeah, at this time, there aint nuttin' I want to do more than chill with the Ali-Cat. She's awesome, when I can get her nose out of a book long enough to chat with me. Last night we watched two episodes of "Ugly Betty" together. We like Betty and we don't think she's ugly at all!

I guess an old dog can learn new tricks....well you get it. I haven't eaten red meat, pork or seacrawlers since 1993. And I've never turned back. I could give up chicken and fish...but...I can't talk anymore about it or I'll give up chicken and fish.

Anyway GOOD FOR YOU're almost FREE! Now get your @$$ in the gym!!!

Yeah, I don't miss the meat, no I don't. And crab and lobster, I guess if my name were Rockerfeller I'd miss it, but nothing to miss now.

As for the gym, I'm going.... tomorrow!

I haven't done any food with a face for about 6 years now. It's not about the nutritional aspects...I just wanted a diet I could be pretentous about. Now go hit the buff shack!!!!

Good for you - especially about the meat. Just say no!

Keep it proud!
