This is the last time I have to write “May” – at least for another year. My idea to purge my superstitious feelings about May is a good one, but I think that I will have to repeat and repeat many years over to truly eliminate my feelings about it. But for a first effort, I am feeling that I did okay.
One of the Maintenance May items was continuing our work from Fit April. And here are my results:
I am happy with the results – considering that I continued to enjoy life while eating right and exercising most of the time. I am down 13 pounds since I started and I am happy with that. But really pisses me off? Emile’s results are what pisses me off:
Seriously? He lost 30 pounds in 2 months. No real hiccups – just a smooth transition. Almost daily runs and some food denials, but nonetheless, he just dropped 30 pounds like it was nothing. And if it was nothing, why didn’t he do it before? Honestly, it seems unfair that men can fluctuate so easily. He looks and feels great. And if I don’t watch my back, he is going to overtake me – although he is going to start getting that gaunt look. And both are just wrong.
We have a run next weekend that we are both hoping to again best our personal bests. We’ll have to see.
