Rock Climbing Take 2

Sorry for the drop in blog posting.  I’m adjusting to my new school and work balancing act so this may happen from time to time.  Last Saturday (as in the one a week before Easter) we went rock climbing again!  This time Matt’s sister Michelle joined us and we all did significantly better than last time.  We even made it up a course past the beginner...

School

Apr 10

So I have officially survived my first week at school!!! It seems to be everything I wanted it to be and then some. I am so excited at what I’ve already learned and everything I’m going to learn. I’m a little overwhelmed at some of the anatomy stuff, especially the really big words. I’m hoping I will have it figured out by test time. We will...

Video Project Progress

So I’ve been working on a couple projects for the blog.   One of them is to keep track of my progress with videos.  I always like to see before and after pictures of peoples success, and they plaster them on so many different sites and ads, I assume that means other people do as well.  So I thought it would be cool to do a video to actually show my work in...

Rock Climbing!

So yesterday was my first time trying rock climbing!  That is if you don’t count me messing around on one of those walls at the liberty science center for about 2 mins as a kid. Ray and I went with our friend Matt who has been twice before. It was a lot of fun.  I feel like I held my own with the boys and that was pretty cool!  I think it probably helps that...

Yoga

Yoga.  I’ve actually had a bit of a love/hate relationship with yoga.  When I was a kid I hated it.  For no good reason really, I just decided I didn’t like it.  One day my mother bought a yoga dvd and I tried it for about 30 seconds, didn’t like downward dog and decided I was right, yoga was stupid.  As an adult, I don’t really remember what...

Progress

Mar 07

So I’m more than halfway done P90X3 now.  I haven’t missed a single day.  I’m on recovery week of block 2 and it’s pretty awesome to see how far I’ve come.  I’ve only lost two pounds but that was never part of the goal.  Just being able to balance on one leg to do some of the moves and not fall over feels like an incredible...
