Goals for this week (May 10 - 15):
1) 5 days a of 30 minutes of exercise
2) 96 oz of water day ( I'm already a little behind on this goal but I have to push through)
3) No unplanned snacking (I'm such a snacker but again this where that self control that I'm working on will come in handy)
4) Back to logging my food … ALL my food!!

@anewbody2014 - Great work building a regular habit of exercising! I agree with you and @bumpbreakcar about the importance of getting into a regular routine that we can stick with over the long term.
I enjoyed a nice row today. It’s been more difficult than usual to get out on the river because my usual boathouse is associated with the schools and, even though the students and crew athletes are back to in-person, they haven’t opened up to the community rowers yet. So, instead of a 10 minute car ride (or 15 minutes by bicycle) it takes me about 30 minutes (one way) to row across town on a different river. The good news is the water is very calm there compared to where we usually scull. Since I’m new to the one person sculling boats, I appreciate the calm water without much boat traffic. Usually, our 8-person shells have to watch out for water taxis, ferries, sailboats, etc. on the Potomac River. And, after driving through Washington, DC, it’s amazing to see so many turtles, ospreys, eagles, and other wildlife are living so close by in the relatively isolated section of the Anacostia River. Today, we even saw a beaver swimming with a baby in (presumably) her mouth!
Next week, my work schedule is really messing with my workout schedule because I have meetings in the middle of the day. It’s tough to carve out 3+ hours to travel, get the boats out, spend an hour or so rowing, and then wash and put away all the equipment. I’ve decided to row this weekend and try to run or visit the gym during the week. I’ll continue the daily ab workouts, too. We’ve only missed one day of abs this month so that’s going well. The stretching hasn’t been consistent but I’ve been doing a little more so I’ll keep trying.
I hope everyone is doing well. Go get those goals!
