Day 132: The Reflex Fle Fle Fle Fle Flex

Update: 208.2 lbs, 50 lbs so far, 50 lb Goal Reached Day 124.

So it's a rainy Friday, and I really don't have much in the way of big news, inspiring words, dog chasing stories, or really anything worth reading. If I were you, I'd just stop now, and go Google the new iPhone or something, you'll probably gain more useful knowledge that way. I've still got Duran Duran on the brain from this morning's Shuffle playlist.

It was raining a bit this morning when I woke up, the first day of summer vacation for all of our kids. Between the rain, and unlaundered bike clothes (really only need the shorts, but I DO need those) I decided to not exercise this morning. Then I walked by a mirror without my shirt on, and decided TO exercise this morning. Threw on my shoes, sweats and my N-Gage Lara Croft Tomb Raider t-shirt (pretty sure this is some sort of collectors item now) and went for a three mile wog. Not really a jog, little bit better than a walk...it's a wog.

Gotta say, I still don't like running, or in my case, trying to run. The walking part I don't mind, but I took my heart monitor today and noticed I basically hovered around 120 bpm if I wasn't jogging more, as opposed to being on the bike where I think I hover more in the 145 range. But I was glad to be out...just not sure if or when I'll be able to carry the running part of a duathlon -- I may just have to team up and do the biking part.

On another note, it's moving day at the office...in fact, our office has been a shambles for the past two weeks with construction and people in and out. After we move, I'm headed to the beach overnight with a couple vans of middle school kids and CraveHizzle staff to celebrate the promotion of our 8th grade buddies. And then summer vacation really begins...or as I like to call it around here, Summer Madness 07. I think between the three school aged kids, we have 8 camps they are attending, a couple concert festivals, tons of parties and overnight trips, our own camping trips (ha! yeah, not looking great right now) and perhaps even a trip for one of them to Texas for a couple weeks. We're gonna need the school year to recoup from the summer vacation.

Well, like I said, nothing really useful here today. Gotta go get ready to burn more calories moving junk from one office to the next. Happy Summer vacation to y'all.

Hasta.

Oh man...

What a beautiful moment for me to take a peek at your blog tonight and to be greeted, oh so nicely, by DURAN DURAN. They are HOT!! My favorite band from my high school years, in fact I saw them in concert my junior year. Again I say, HOT.

Yes, I'm old. And, yes, their music is a pop fest of non-talent. They are eye candy for the 80's teenage girls soul...

Thanks for the flash back Lope.

Still proud of you and your weight loss. Are you still weighing in everyday?
