OK, so August wasn’t the greatest exercise month, this I know as fact.
I stopped recording everything in my Exercise Log Book about 10 days into the month, and My Fitness Pal wasn’t too far behind on the back burner, but this isn’t going to be one of those, “I suck,” “I’ll get better” resolution round-up posts, no siree Bob!
You see, I might not have written everything down the past month, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t kicking my own ass. First there was the moving of all the important stuff from our second-floor (up very steep steps, mind you) apartment in NEPA to our charming (and very 1st floor) abode in South Harlem.
Up and down, up and down the fella and I walked, sometimes under the heavy weight of a couch, dressers, chairs and cabinets into said SoHa home and what was getting stored in the lower level of my parents’ homestead.
Then there’s the walking to and fro the subway to and fro work – and up (and up) the tons of stairs from the train to the streets – which I have to admit is grueling, especially in the temps of 80 and above we’ve been having in the city the past week.
But I cannot tell a lie: It beats getting stuck behind a moron NEPA driver – and driving myself!
In just a week, I’ve already seen a big difference in my face – and my gams. My newish jeans are already baggy on me, and let me tell you, that’s a darn good feeling, darn good indeed! My next order of business is getting myself better walking shoes to really feel the burn on the walking commute and lunchtime Financial District meanderings.
So I’m sorry I was out of touch, August 2012, but just because I was paperless doesn’t mean I was resting on my laurels. I’m seriously doing something exercise-y every day!
My goal for September now that we’re settled into our new home is to really get back into eating better, especially since the options to do so are so vast here in New York.
