About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

LazyMan Update, Week Two

So, here we are on the 15th.  Halfway through the month.  How am I doing?

Walking – I’m just 1/10 of a mile shy of being exactly halfway done with this.  I’ve got 13 miles done, with 13.2 left to go.

Biking – I’ve completed 62 miles, with 50 left to go – 55% done!

Swimming – This is where I’m proudest.  I did 12 laps last Friday, 10 on Monday, and another 12 today.  I’m at 64 laps, with just 21 to go!  That’s 75% done!  I can probably finish up on Monday at this pace.  If I do, I’m going to keep going.  The three-day-a-week schedule is working well for me, and I realize just how much I love swimming.  I’m even thinking about looking into a Masters team.  I think there’s one around here, and it would be fun to compete again, if I can get my speed up to snuff.  🙂

So, all told, I’m 60% complete!  Not too bad, since we’re only halfway through the month.

I’m definitely starting to notice the results, too, which is really amazing.  My clothes are fitting better, and there are fewer lumps and bumps around my middle.  I feel stronger, and healthier, and I LOVE that.  I’m still tracking calories on SparkPeople, and I think it’s helping me retrain my habits a bit.  I’m not trying to be crazy picky about what I eat, but I’m definitely just trying to eat smarter.  As of last Friday, I was down about 8-1/2 pounds since February.  Just over 40 pounds left to go to reach my goal, and I’m giving myself until February to make that.  I think I might actually make it this time!
