Mic Drop GRADUATION POST
Shout out to Ward, Hugh, Tuck, Kate, Oakley Blades, and my Kenzai Dojo Blog Wrap for motivating me throughout this Kenzai session. I am feeling good about the program and better about myself after dropping a solid 20lbs during the program. Moreover, it feels good knowing that I trimmed the waistline in a healthy way without ever feeling hungry and without any significant cravings. I look forward to spending some more time out on the trails, a little more time on my bike to switch it up, and trying to keep the healthy vibe alive! Be well, Y'all!
Last night I counted the number of people drinking water at game 7 of the Celtics-Wizards series. There was one.
Anyhoo, great game, and it was actually pretty fun witnessing it unfold in day 15 of sobriety.
My body feels good. I felt rather sluggish on my run this afternoon, but that might have been because it was 80 degrees and I only got 4.5 hours of sleep last night. Early to bed tonight and back at it with a strength workout in the AM. Can we do dis? Yes, we can.
Cross-training day, and I'm gonna get my b-ball on with the Hugh Dawg. To all the ballers out there who think they can take us in a 30 minute 2 v 2 scrimmage, we'll see you at the courts at 11:30 sharp. It's on at the Shore Country Day School Yard. Do you want to start some static? Can you come correct? My Reebok Pumps think not.
Made it through the first week without a problem. It was a big week with a lot of post-work events, etc...high stress, but the exercise helped keep me balanced and feeling good as did watching what I threw down my pie hole.
I was unaware I was signing up for no alcohol for 50+ days. That will only be difficult when I am at large, social gatherings in the evenings because I have Hopnophobia (fear of no hoppy beer when faced with large crowds). It's hereditary on my mom's side (she's Belgian), but alas, I digress.
Full disclosure: I have cheated a bit on some of the runs because I started training for a 10 mile run a few weeks ago. I haven't added too much mileage, but I have done a little more than the prescribed amount, especially trying to get a slightly longer run in on the weekends. Let me know if I will be shunned or shamed for such behavior.
Ward, not sure how I should communicate with you directly, but I think the photo should be up now. I thought I already put up a front, 3/4, and profile shot, so hopefully those are swimming around cyber space for all to enjoy. I put my shot up for the Kenzai Community. If I put them as "public," what does that mean?
Thanks for the video. Nice to put the name to the face.
Nice to have Ward cracking the whip on this two man wolf pack. I live on a big hill at the top of a golf course, and today I ran up and down the hill for twenty minutes. It was harder on the way up.
