Rain in great abundance has been falling daily. The garden has been ok mostly, but if this weather pattern continues there will be consequences to the plants. On the up-side, such weather provided us with the above shot one evening at sunset.
On other news I’ve started a personal best summer challenge with the BFFM group. I realized that simply saying I want to get fit or lose weight were a bit meaningless, as I’ve done both. So what to do now that I can say with gusto that I am fit? Aiming for personal best’s on my lifts has become my summer challenge. Currently I am at 80# squats and my goal by September will be to Squat my body weight (+ or – 150 pounds, depending if I gain muscle/lose some stray flab ;) ). Speaking of flab, my current body composition is running about 27% bf. By the end of summer I hope to bring that number down to about 20%, very do-able.
Since I’ll be 50 in a few more weeks another goal of my summer challenge will be to do 50 fully prone pushups! That is a great challenge for me as I’ve had a lot of surgery and have only recently “graduated” to the fully prone pushup. Currently I do 3 sets of 5 followed by one set of 10 for a total of 20. However my goal of 50 is without rests between as I am doing now…cheer me on, I’m going to need it.
How grows your garden or what plans are you making to improve your fitness levels this summer? Are any of you planning an awesome vacation? Our summer is shaping up to be full but fun. I hope the same is true for you.
