Fitness Friday

Okay peeps.  I love exercise and fitness.  This is the reason I teach Physical Education and Health.  I am calling out for your fitness related questions.  I know you are curious about some topic.  Please comment with questions or you can email me:  softballrita@yahoo.com

I could just keep writing about my exercise and eating habits, but I am already getting tired of it.  I would find it fun to research topics for you(if I don't already have the knowledge) and write posts about your interests.  So, seriously, if you have read this post, you are now responsible to comment and ask me a fitness related question.  Don't be a slacker and think that you can just leave here without doing so.  I know who you are.  I have my tracking methods.  haha.

Life is good on my fit journey.  This week I ran for the first time in over a year.  It felt great and Ellis even enjoyed being pushed around the indoor track.  He fell asleep by lap three!  I thought I could run more and wanted to, but also felt it probably is a good idea to ease back into it because of the bum knee and having been carved out like a pumpkin three and a half months ago.  I am doing the Couch to 5k program.  You can read about it HERE if interested.

The weight loss is going.  I didn't lose as much as I had wanted to this week but I do know why....endless fries at Red Robin and pizza for faculty lunch last friday.  Today, I am limiting my going out to a sandwich and chips.  No fries.  I know, weird for this burgers on Friday girl, but for now I need to watch it.  This time of year is hard in general to lose weight, so it must be so.  Maybe a burger and fries only on payday week!

Tracking my food intake for Weight Watchers is a bit difficult for me because of not being able to track on my phone, but I am being stubborn and refusing to pay them for the three months until it is all free again.  Oh yes, I will be back at goal weight in three months.

Well, be sure to get me your fitness and nutrition questions.
