The Next Adventure!

Hello there,

Yes, it has been a while since I have posted any updates. Been VERY busy which is a good thing, just need to keep my priorities in order.

I have moved hosting accounts a couple of times for this site. I use this and a few others to test with, and this has helped me to avoid issues with clients. That is a very good thing. We had an issue with a host and switched. This was the second time for my sites within a couple of months. I am hoping we found a good home where we are now. They have a 100% network uptime guarantee. Any issues going forward may be self inflicted…  🙂

I am doing well on the fat loss plan. A little slow lately with vacation and “slacking” – that’s ok. The journey so far has been really good..

Latest stats:

  • Lost 60 pounds
  • ~25 lbs to goal weight
  • Switching gyms – slower transition than I would have liked

The lowest I weighed in at was 197 – 61 pounds lost.  I did gain a few on vacation and need to get back on track.  The next major goal in on the horizon, and the reason I needed to change gyms. Ready?  Here it is…

Next Adventure: By the end of June, I will participate in at least one triathlon.

This is something I have thought about many times over the years, and it is falling into place. I have another “accountability partner” that participated in a few last year and gave me the information to get me excited about it. There is a local park that has events every other Tuesday starting June 10th. I will attempt to be there for the first one, and see how many I can make??  Time will tell.

So why the need to change gyms? – I need a pool to train in. I can swim enough to save my life, not very graceful or very efficient. I need to fix that.

I will be joining LA Fitness right next to my house. They have a full length lap pool, and (bonus) SPINNING CLASSES!

My plan is to get to the gym – sign up for the spinning class (need to do 30 minute prior to start) then swim for the 30 minutes and join the spin class. Depending on the time / schedule, may then hop on a treadmill or jog outside.

A couple of nice things…

I went to the store to get some clothes. A few items for Lyndsey and Shane’s party, and later a couple of pairs of shorts for summer (Florida vacation). I can’t believe I actually enjoyed trying clothes on! Everything I brought into the changing room fit..  this has NEVER happened.  Really makes me feel good for all the effort I have put into this.

I am fitting into size 34 jeans and wearing many shirts that are “medium” – had to go through my closet and get rid of some stuff.  Here is one pic of the latest pile heading for Good Will.donating clothes - next adventure

This is just a quick catch up on what is happening.  Now that the server is stable and I can focus a bit more, will be posting regularly again.

Peace and Love!

Best,
-Dennis
