Last night my wife and I walked 8 miles, and frankly, I’m pretty proud of that! 😀
It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged about exercise & dieting … or at least blogged positively, anyways … life has been particularly chaotic lately. But really, it’s been doing that for almost a year now because it was only a month shy of 1 year since life last got crazy and we were forced to start looking for the house that we ended up buying three months later.
Anywho, the point is – I want to get back into some better habits, particularly with regards to all of this because it’s just been too long. Over the month of April I’ve slowly been getting better at taking Cleo out for our nightly walks again, so out of curiosity, after finishing the walk that felt like it would never end last night, I pulled up the stats on my good, old-fashioned Fitocracy profile…
On one hand, it’s a little bit of a downer to see how I built up such a great start at the beginning of 2012 and then watched it come crashing down in the months to follow … but at the same time, I didn’t think that I’d already been doing that good in April, either, so I think that’s gotta count for something.
Sara and I are really trying to go at this together this time because we both really need to up our game and the time together to chat about life, the universe, and everything certainly couldn’t hurt, either! I’m not really near a point where I’m ready to start setting goals again or anything – I think things are still a little too busy for that, but if I have to set only one, I think a good start would be trying to break my totals for April and if we can keep up with doing the big one once a week, that actually leaves a pretty reasonable gap for me to fill in with shorter walks the rest of the week.
Let’s check back in a month and see what happened! 😉
