WLJ: Lazy Labor Day

I had a really lazy Labor Day weekend.  Really lazy.  Possibly my laziest weekend all year.

I went for a four-mile walk on Friday after work.  And I parked a good distance from the stadium when I went to a game on Saturday.  Other than that, I was on my couch.

I swear, I did not get more than 4K steps between Sunday and Monday combined.  That's a huge drop-off for me.  I aim for 10K steps EACH DAY, and usually end up logging at least 11K.  But I opted for relaxation over the weekend.  And I'm not feeling guilty about it.  I think my body actually needed a little bit of that.  And I plan to head out for a walk after work tonight.

I can't wait for temperatures (especially the humidity) to drop so running is more comfortable.  My Color Run is just over a month away.  I would like to do a few more 5K races this fall, but I haven't really tried to find any.  I am definitely going to fall way short on my goal of five 5Ks this year.  Oh well.  I'll survive.

How are you doing on your fitness goals for the summer?  The year?

Weight-loss goal: 40 lbs.
This week's progress: - 0.2 lbs.
Progress to date: -32.2 lbs.
Non-scale victory: After so many people suggested it, I found a yoga class I'm going to try as my September fitness challenge.  It's reasonably priced (in my opinion) and fits into my schedule. I will let you know how I like it as the month goes on.
