The First Monday in Octember: HASAY

Filed under: General — by Sandie @ 2:15 pm

You’d think I’d be more prepared for this now that we’ve gone to once a month HASAY updates. But it seems like every month, it creeps up on me. Good thing Casey sends out those reminder e-mails. If it wasn’t for those, I’d never know what day it was!

The good news is, I actually have some good news to report this month!

I’ve been going to the gym! I’ve only made it three times in the last two weeks, but I think that’s much better than the zero times I went in the last few months. I’ve started the Couch to 5K running program. I’m starting week 3 this week (even though I didn’t really do the first two weeks correctly or even for full weeks!). My fitness test is scheduled for the end of the month and I figure doing a modified C-2-5K should get me running 1 Ā½ miles in no time.

I’ve also been trying to work on my abs and upper body. My hope is to score at least as well as I did last year on my test (though I’ll also just settle for a passing score).

And if you think that’s all the good news I have to report this month, well you’re wrong! During one of my trips to the gym I found a scale. According to said scale, I managed to lose about 3 pounds since we’ve been here. Initially, I thought the scale may have been off, but I found another scale and the results were the same.

Of course, I think I ruined it all this weekend (damn hormones!).

  1. Awesome, I’m so glad you’re getting settled in and starting a new routine. Keep it up!

  2. That’s great news! Congrats. Moving to a new country and sticking to a workout plan isn’t easy. I’ve started the Couch to 5K too…a couple of times actually, due to shin issues, knee issues, sick kid issues. But I like going out and doing it. I’m on week two again, we’ll see how long that lasts. Good luck this month.

  4. C-2-5K. You crack me up!

    Good work on the three, good luck on the fitness test.

    When I saw your post title, I thought it would be something about judging. (Reference is to the Supreme Court opening date, in case you’re not a political geek like me.)

    Re-examining it, I see you typed “Octember” – do you mean you’re just doing one post for the months of October and November? Ha!
