Signed up for IRONMAN’s VR6 (Virtual Race #6) this weekend.  3k run, 40k bike, 10k run.  I also signed up for Rock n Roll Marathon series’ virtual race, which is an 8k.  So….lots of time outside running and riding.

I’m also finding that taking time consistently throughout the day to complete sets of push ups, kettle bell swings, body weight squats and leg lifts helps raise the metabolism a bit while working.  I’m already feeling some of the benefits that comes with consistency.

Using an application like MyFitnessPal has made policing my dietary intake a bit easier.  I’m surprising myself when it comes to the increase in self-discipline lately.  While I do have cravings for all things tasty and NOT good for me, I’m finding that it’s becoming easier to reign myself in a bit and not give in.

Progress is slow.  Very slow.  But it’s there.

I’m beginning to try yoga more and more, simple 10 minute sessions that still kick my butt. I need to focus on flexibility – right now the only way i’m gonna be able to touch my toes is if someone snips them off my feet and hands them to me.
