This weekend was an eventful one, not in the fact that we did so much but for the fact that I realized I was going to have to go to England overweight and not only that, but I was probably going to end up going back to Gymnastics overweight too, something I had sworn I wouldn’t. I had envisioned myself being able to condition with the girls, being able to at least do handstands and cartwheels with the little ones. For some reason when the end of the season comes, I think I have months off to prepare for the new year whereas in reality we only get about 8 weeks off. Since 3 of those will be spent in England away from the gym I had no option but to start running to give myself a chance to at least maintain my weightloss while I was away. Well, the plan failed miserably and my return to the gym has far exceeded my running success. This is counterproductive since I can’t keep up the gym gains on vacation. I was supposed to be running 3x a week btu I have struggled to make one or two so far. This weekend I finally decided to get my act together and catch up on everything including my motivation. So I changed the oil in the car, ordered a set of tires for the Jeep since I now have 2 slow punctures and the cheap tires are on sale! I tried to update this blog but found that typing on a full sized keyboard just frustrates the hell out of me since my hands are used to my laptop keyboard. I just can’t seem to spell anything right on the computer at home. I did manage to clean the garage, which has been a long time coming. Last year I spent a lot of time out there making it nice and doing work. This summer I don’t seem to have spent any time out there at all. So I bit the bullet and rearranged a lot of the shelving and found a place for almost everything. The other benefit to being out there is that is serves as a warmup for my run, or a time for me to practise my darts while barbecueing. Which reminds me, I need gas…
