20 Pounds And Counting

Saturdays are my fun days.  I had a free pass to the Meyer Center and Paul agreed to meet me at the gym today to take a look at my running form and see how I am doing.  He told me I was doing a great job.  Just need to work on keeping my arms down, but how my foot falls and my form was good!  So I am happy about that.  We then went down to the pool and got a good swim in.  Then we just sat around and chatted it up.  Then we moved to the hot tub and the steam room.  We had a lot of fun.  I was glad Paul could come and talk about his experience with running and how he lost all of his weight!  THANKS COACH PAUL!!

Not the best pic of me, but its all good!

I have been putting off weighing myself, but could not resist after today's workout and jumped on the scale and saw that I am down 20 lbs!  My goal is to lose 10 more by the end of the month!  I know its a lot, but I can do it!  

I was able to wear a shirt I have not been able to in a long time today.  Check it out.  I wore it to our date night tonight.  We went to Olive Garden and Andy's.  Today is my free day and it was fun to be out with my wife and my mom watched the kidos.
And here is a pic of me running yesterday.  See how it is still dark outside!  That is not night time my friends..  That is the AM!

Wait - Chris is that by any change the New Albany YMCA? Because it looks to the life like the place I do my indoor running?

They must be using the same floor plan/design, then, because both the inside and outside pictures could readily have been shot here. Made me do a serious double-take.

You are a stud! You look great in that shirt. I've been enjoying reading your progress. Keep it up my friend. I bet it all feels so good.
