Wednesday Morning...

Good Morning!

Feeling pretty awesome today and I'm doing my very best to connect the dots as I go. My glucose came in @123 early this morning and I got my 60 sit-ups in.

I have a whole bunch of work to do over the next few hours and thenI'll do some dumbell work later and it might end up being a rest day from the pool, as I'm super sore from yesterday's fantastic session w/Annette in the rain. She had me doing all kinds of really cool stuff, jumping up and down, like rocket booster squats...jumping straight up out of the water...like 50 of those. And then this other interval exercise in the pool which was awesome cardio and great strength training too. Same deal, jumping...but I would jump up and forward very quickly, 8-10 times going towards the deep end forward facing and then reverse and jump backwards to where I had started...and then repeat that quickly several times....super fun, exciting & great exercise! The water was cold with the rain yesterday, but I wasn't cold at all doing those 'leap frogs'.

It was great to work-out w/Annette again and to really be able to see just how far I have come over the last 8-9 months.

I'm pushing pretty hard this week, nothing crazy...but a genuine push. I've got a weigh-in Friday and the news folks are coming on Friday too for another update over at the pool.

It's been tough emotionally for me lately, but just like the weather...it comes and it goes. Sticking to my plan for getting healthier no matter what and just keeping my focus there & on my work for business...trying to be creative and adapt within what's been a pretty scary time over the last 18 months or so for any small business. Big picture, I'm a really lucky dude and days like this when I feel calm inside and have clarity....they are absolutely priceless!

I hope everyone has a really Smooth Wednesday!

    I am happy you sound so happy. Sometimes I wish I did not feel like I had to weigh in. I know I have to, to keep up with what I am doing and to make changes in case I get off course. Good job keeping up with your plans and sticking with it. That is the most important part.
