From Wednesday to Friday I covered a whopping 9.3 miles while journeying around the various Venice and West Los Angeles areas. With the good comes the bad. Thursday I really pushed myself with 4.2 miles walked that day, but it was mostly in sandals. From the poor choice of footwear I now am the proud owner of several blisters on the bottoms of my feet. And since it was a drastic increase in activity, I'm feeling a little pain in my back. It's more of just a soreness, not so much sharp or intense pain. Either way, I've taken it easy yesterday and today- although tonight I'll prolly get my hour in once it gets a little cooler. Still no luck with a scale, so I'm in the dark as far as my true weight and how far I'm away from goal. One thing I'm going to try is to get a trial membership at a gym in the area just to utilize the scale and maybe the elliptical. Another bummer is I'm coming down with a cold. So the rest was beneficial over the past few days as I up my fluids.
Coming up this week I'll be doing a video blog because I'm about to hit my first Frankbox Achievement soon! I'm excited to be taking another step into the world of technology! (OoooooOooooo!)
I ask that anybody that reads any of my blogs to comment. If you have any questions or suggestions for me as far as FrankBox Achievements or workout tips or recipes then comment. If it's more direct, head over to the contact me page and shoot me an email! This is all for now! Stay tuned for more! :-D
