Post with 8 notes
It’s December and it turns out, unlike what I forgot; it gets ungodly cold up here in December.
In the previous weeks I’ve ran a competitive 5k [worse time ever], ran a few miles, and really have just been swamped with work.
However, unlike my biggest fear; the weight isn’t piling up.
As we continue to aim towards the magic 225 number; we’ve got to keep in mind that during these winter months, I’m going to run; I’m going to stay ‘active’, but don’t expect a crazy amount of burn or hard workouts; simply because of this:
I have no gym.
It’s crazy cold outside.
As you can see from the photo below, thanks to some crazy blessings and Black Friday, I did finally invest in some Cold Gear from UnderArmour. For years I was hesitant to invest in ‘the name’. However, after running for the 1st time in them.
Oh my gosh. I need more.
Granted, it should be noted that UnderArmour does not protect you from wind chills. Yesterday it dropped to 11 degrees while I was running, and I still nearly froze.
I’m still learning.
There are a few adjustments coming up in the near future for myself.
I think that’s all I’ve got at the moment. I’m behaving with the holiday’s for the most part. I did enter one eating contest last Saturday and nearly died. Thankfully I got to this point where I was, “full”, and that was it; I just stopped. It’s nice to no longer be known as the guy who just ‘puts food away’. I have limitations also.
This may sound a little vain, but honestly, I like waking up in random hotels [work], walking into the full body mirror, resting my palms on the sink; looking into the mirror and going, “Wow. We’ve come far. Plenty more to go, but honestly, I look good.”
