It is the first day of of the new decade and hopefully you have made a note of your resolutions or goals for the new year.  I settled on an old favorite of losing weight.  If you are a faithful reader you know that I had a short time of “trying” to lose weight a few months ago.  I didn’t really make it a big priority then, but now it had to be done.

No, I don’t have a stern word from the doctor, but something much worse.  I had to go shopping for pants last week.  Let’s just say I refer to them as my fat pants.  This morning Casey and I went for a run/walk.  Before we got back I had felt the length of my absence from running.  My ankles hurt, legs itched, short of breath what am I 90?  You have to start somewhere right?

One recommendation from when I was going bootcamp that I can share with you.  The contrast shower.  When you get in the shower after a good workout turn the water all the way to cold for 10 – 15 seconds before turning the shower off.  This will cut down on the lactic acid building up in your muscles.

It is supposed to be a cold one out there in the morning.  Hopefully I can burn a few pounds off trying to stay warm.  I’ll leave you with B4 trying to spit out all her nasty cereal.
