It has been almost two months since my last post. Since that time my car was repaired and the weather turned much colder. Then, the snow came–lots of it. Since I work in building maintenance, I get to spend a portion of my day outside shoveling snow. Keeping the snow off the sidewalks benefits me in a couple different ways. It helps slow down my weight gain over the winter months, and it lets me rack up tons of steps on my Fit Bit.
Traditionally, I use my free time over the winter to work on indoor projects. Since I have neglected my model trains for about three years, I’ve been working on my train layout. In addition, I’ve committed to teaching a class Sunday mornings for the next several months so there’s little time left to begin a training regiment.
It looks like I’ll have to circle the wagons and wait until spring to resume a training program. April 1st seems like as good a day as any to start a couch to 5k for the second time. This year I’ll begin training two months earlier and fifteen to twenty pounds lighter.
Between now, and then, I plan to try to keep my step counter whirling.
