Solid Start to June

Off to a decent start for the month of June. I'm not posting my normal Monday weigh-in today. Instead, I posted a weigh-in yesterday because it was the beginning of the month. I was happy to see that I was down 2 more pounds for a total May weight loss of 11 pounds!! My goal for this month...10 more. I know that it's not gonna continue to come off as easy as it did in May, so I'm going to have to keep the slip ups to a minimum and no days off from working out. I'm not saying I'm going to go out and put up 5 miles a day or anything, but at least some movement every day.

I'm really hoping for a solid performance leading up to...wait for it...wait for 30th birthday...gulp!! That's right this month...the 23rd to be exact...I hit the big 3-0. It's funny though, I guess I should be feeling old (no offense to those of you who are approaching Scopa territory) but I'm feeling better than I have in several years. It's amazing what a little exercise and eating right will do for a guy!!

My birthday celebration plans include making a trip to Newport, RI to celebrate with some friends. I lived in this city for 5 years while attending college and have plenty of old haunts, i.e. restaurants and bars, that I want to hit while there. This will probably be my toughest challenge yet, but I have plenty of time still to worry about that. First and foremost is my next 5k challenge coming up June 14th. My goal...beat my previous time. I figure with some solid mileage the next couple weeks I should be able to get myself into a decent position to do just that.

I'm still finding myself torn about who to cheer for in the battle of the titans...The Voice vs. Stroller Boy. I'm leaning towards's an East Coast thing, and with the Celtics taking on the Lakers, I'm hesitant to get behind anything or anyone who represents the left coast. I may have to see how things start to unfold before I officially throw my hat in any one's ring. For now, I'll just say...I hope both stay injury free and continue to move their training forward.

Congrats on the weight loss. It takes 18 days to start a habit.
