Other than reading more books and watching more movies, I am planning to do some other stuff.
I am once again training to run my 1st 5K. I started this about 3 years ago, but never got that far. I had to quit the gym because I didn't have the funds. But I joined another gym, a less expensive one, therefore, I am attempting to do this again. I would like to be able to run and finish my first 5K by spring. I was training outdoors, but now winter has finally decided to rear it's ugly head, so indoor training is probably best.
I've also cut back on my wheat consumption. I need to lose this weight. Even when I work out, my belly remains, so I want to see if removing most wheat will improve this.
In the process I would like to lose some weight. My ideal amount of weight would be 40 pounds, but I will be happy with 30.
This is not a New Years resolution. I wanted to start this in October, but I feel it is futile during the last 3 months of the year as there are holidays that get in the way.
So I went to sign up for the gym today, here is a conversation I had with the fitness instructor.
Fitness Instructor: What are your fitness goals?
Me: I am training for a 5K
Fitness Instructor: *Blank Look*
Me: It is a race....
Fitness Instructor: Ohhhh...
I'm a little scared. I know some people don't know what a 5K is, but I would hope that someone in the fitness industry who works in a gym might have at least a working knowledge of some things. But whatever, she's not training me.
