Fit by 50 / wk 5

2014-08-20 15.06.38

Seems like someone is always celebrating a birthday at the Thibodaux Police Department. This week was my Administrative Assistant’s special day. She’s been every Chief of Police’s Admin for the last 38 yrs. Happy Birthday Kim Robicheaux. Lori Cortex, the super cool lady in green has a birthday this weekend – Happy b-day to you too.

How does an office birthday party factor into a Fit by 50 post?

You got it… Cake. Not just one deliciously moist slice, but two. I would’ve gone for a third, but someone said something about sharing.

I’m not competing for Mr. America, so I’m not sweating the cake. Sweets are also no longer a part of my regular diet. But you gotta celebrate the special moments in life.

Helping my decision was that I blasted a crossfit workout before sunrise. I’m loving the structured high-intensity sessions monitored by a trained instructor. Amazing how the mind effects performance – I’ve learned that when “I Can’t”, becomes “I Can” – then I’m truly on the road to rocking 50.

So, you can have your cake and eat it too. By the way, who came up with that saying? How insane to expect someone with cake to not eat it. Just not every day okay?

Big News:

What does the Warrior Dash, a NYT Best Selling Author, Cops-n-Kilts, and kicking cancer in the can have to do with each other?

Answer – Next week


1. Maintain sensible diet {Check + cake}

2. Exercise at least 4 times next week {Check}

3. Buy new scale but not obsess over readings. {Scale? Don’t bother with it}

4. Encourage you to join me and share experience and commitments. {Come on, I know you’re out there}

5. Be positive about the quest for fitness. {Check – easy to be positive about feeling loose, limber and healthy}

6. Don’t skin shins during box jumps (Okay, so I threw in a WOD term) {No box jumps this week, so I was safe}
