A bit late with my re-cap from last week.  It felt like I did a lot worse than what I see there.  By the book, I did pretty decent.  This heat is definitely being felt while I'm out on walks & runs!  

I'm getting a crash course in what I need in order to run in this sweltering heat.  Not only taking fluids with me, but making sure that I'm getting enough water type fluid the day before and day of the run!  I always just thought I needed to make sure I was well hydrated the day of, but it turns out you really need to be well hydrated the day before too.  Since I'm walking and running most days of the week, it's even more important that I keep drinking that water!

In the past week, I've probably cut back about 50% of the amount of soda type drinks so far.

Week 4 Winner is....

Good news: Both Dad and I lost a pound this past week!
Bad news/Good news: Since I weigh more than Dad, that means he wins this week too!

It really feels like it's been a struggle to start of this competition this year!  Last years competition, I had lost 7 pound and Dad had lost 4 by week 4.  Although week 4 last year had us both not loosing anything that week.

My goal is to be down to at least 220 by the 1/2 Marathon on November 3 (week 21).  My secondary goal is to be at 200 by the time the Disney World 1/2 next January (week 31).  In order to make the secondary goal, I KNOW I have to be under 220 by the first 1/2 Marathon here in Indy since there are only 10 weeks to go after the Monumental 1/2.

Our contest "ends" at week 25, as that is time for the trip to Florida.

Movie Report: Amazing Spider-Man

I met up with Rick and Josh (a person that is down here in Indy with Rick) late last night to take in the new Spider-Man movie.  We met up in Downtown Indy at the Circle Center Mall.  It was my first time at this theater, it's an older theater.  I cannot remember the last time I saw a movie in a non-stadium seating theater!

The seats were comfortable and the movie was really good.  I ended up liking this movie better than the Toby Macguire movies!

Nothing beats going to a movie with some friends!  It was great to be able to talk with someone about the movie right after watching it!

Trip details for November

This past week, they opened up the reservations for Candlelight Processional packages!  The week that we will be there, Neil Patrick Harris will be the presenter (given no schedule changes before we get there).  He is one of the presenters that I've heard are one of the best and I've wanted the chance to see him.

Now, the issue was the restaurants that were available for the day we're going to do this.  We wound up with La Hacienda de San Angel in front of the Mexico pavilion at Epcot.  Our other options were just not ones that we'd want to visit right now.  We will still have the option to go to our other reservation, I just have to remember to cancel one or the other by the time we get there.

Thanks for Reading!  Regards,
