Report From Ladder Company 40 -Day 12

Hi Gang,

Today has been an up and down day.

I started my morning with the 3k walk to benefit crisis pregnancy centers. That was a nice time and a challening walk with lots of up and down to it. A far cry from the mostly flat terrain I've been walking.

My total step count for the day was 10,387 which was 3.77 miles and 510 calories. I did some other walking but did not have the pedometer on while at home.

I spent a lot of time lying down today, feeling more tired than usual. My stomach is bothering me and I have pretty much confirmed my supspicion that I am allergic to pineapple. yay me!! :(

I drank about 40 ounces of water today which is better than many days, but could use improvement.

Sunday is a day of rest and tomorrow I intend to do just that.

All in all today was not a bad day, but it also wasn't my best.

Thanks for all the support, team.

Stay Safe

Report From Ladder Company 40 -Day 11

Hi Team!

Oh boy! I've done it now. Remember how I said one of my goals was to get more sleep? Well there is a very good reason for that. (Besides that that it is much healthier for my to do so than not). Last night, I fell asleep at the computer. When I woke up, slumped over the keyboard, I didn't remember that I hadn 't blogged yet. I remembered that much later after waking up from my "bed" because of a more urgent matter. So, here I am now, upon waking for the next day, writing my blog, sheepishly.

Yesterday, (Day 11) was a really good day:

Right after my morning shift, Coach Alex and I went for our usual walk. We made our three miles in a little less than an hour and did 10 sets of stairs.

My total step count for yesterday was 18,525 steps!! That translates into 6.72 miles!

I drank at least 60 ounces of water yesterday! YAY ME!

Somebody told me, "Wow, you're losing weight, I can see it in your face!"

The PE teacher at the school I work in told me I was doing a great job and to keep up the good work.

All in all it was a day of great successes and encouragement.

Today, (which is actually day 12) is my 4USTacoma walk, benefitting Crisis Pregnancy Centers with Ultrasound machines and training for technicians. It is a three mile walk through Point Defiance Park. It is not looking too promising out there weather wise, but I am going!

Thanks for all the support, well wishes, prayers, encouragement, etc.

Until tonight, Stay Safe!
