Ummm ... I am Awesome Today

Planned to work out this morning ... BAM on the elliptical trainer for 25 min. (would have done 30 but didn't have time)

Wanted to hit 1 hour of significant activity ... BAM knocked out the other 35 min. durring my breaks at work doing "laps" in my building and huffing up and down stairs.

I think I might have even gotten a taste of runner's high! To be clear, I am not running. At best I am chunky-trotting (walking with a jogging like bounce so you feel like you are jogging but really you just look like a fat kangaroo)

I feel great!!! I am sooooo determined to hit that 100 lb mark by March 1st. It will be hard but worth it! That's 25 lbs I need to blast. For comparison here is what 25 pounds equals:
  • 5 bags of flour (whole wheat of coarse)
  • 2 large human heads
  • About 3 gallons of water
  • An American Bulldog
Possible? Not sure yet. I'll let you know on March 1st!


  1. I know some human heads that SEEM large but are just overly inflated. How much do those weigh?

  2. Wow Mike, great exercise today. I am impressed and so know the feeling and look of the fat Kangaroo. That's one of the reasons I am not comfortable walking in public yet. I plan on doing my first 5K in July and I'm sure the fat Kangaroo will make an appearance.

    Yes, you are awesome!

  3. Ha, ha, ha! Both post were funny. I am definitely more of a night person, I mean I don't hate mornings but sleep is way more fun. However once I get up and actually work out I feel so good the rest of the day and make way better choices. Abby's crazy sleep schedule has made this really hard but I'm trying to get back to it. Keep it up!!!

  4. Chunky trotting! I love it! Been there, done that!
