I totally forgot today is the first day of SUMMAH!
Mr. Gaunt and I sat down this morning and wrote down all (or most) of the music for the wedding, as well as mapped out the timeline. Exciting stuff, I know. Then it got late (10am) and we still hadn’t worked out. Mr. Gaunt was actually icing his knee that has ben bugging him. For a minute we discussed not working out and just doing our errands for the day. But with my new work schedule being TEN HOURS of sitting down, I knew that skiing my workout would be a bad idea. So I left Mr. Gaunt at home and went running. I had already decided to just do 30 minutes, and to try to run as much of that as I could. Then I decided right after I started running that I would just shoot for two miles (previously I have only done 1.5 without stopping). Sure enough I got on a good pace and jogged a whole TWO MILES! Woop Woop! I’m sure people driving past are shocked at my ability to jog so slowly, but my heart stay beating hard the whole time, so its good enough for me!

Mr. Gaunt and I have to go to Michael’s today to get stuff to make our groomsmen boutonnieres! I’m actually very excited about this little project, as we are doing something very non-traditional, but very cute!
Mr. Gaunt and I have decided to take up walking! I know, not that thrilling but I gotta do something to lose 20 lbs by July! Plus lately I’ve been feeling kind..err…Fat. I havent gained wait, been the same for a while, but I’m sick of the size I am. Time to go down a bit. So because we live right next to the Highline Canal Trail there’s really no reason for us to not walk regularly. The weather is also a lot nicer and it stays light out later. Mr. Gaunt wants me to buy a bike so we can ride together, but I’m worried we wont actually do it. If we can walk at least 4 nights a week for the entire month of May, then I will consider buying a bike. I need to know we can stick to something.
So tonight was sort of a trial to see what route we wanted to take. Turned out we walked just over 3 miles, in just under an hour. I don’t have a pedometer to track my length, but I found this great website called Gmaps Pedometer.GMP lets you trace your route on Google Maps and tells you your exact distance. Here is our route (yes at one point we tried to take a shortcut and ended up just making a loop)
