Emerald_Dragonfly posts a gif


Recommended Posts

No theme, just gifs. 

I'm not going no words (although that one was fun)...just whatever gifs I feel like including.  I do not promise that they will all make sense. 

 

Goals:

1.  Lift 3x per week (still at rehab weights - allllllllllmost healed, though)

2.  Zombies Run! 2x or more per week (walk/jog/run quick, there are ZOMBIES!)

giphy.gif

3.  Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut.  1780 calories or below.

4. Sneak in some yoga.

Unrelated to my goals, but I want to brag:



MY HUSBAND RAN THE BOSTON MARATHON THIS PAST MONDAY!!!!!!!!

(This is a HYUGE accomplishment, complete with qualifying requirements and a sweet swagalicious jacket). 

As a non-runner, I didn't realize what a freaking big deal the Boston Marathon actually is until he started training to qualify.  I'm so proud of him!

I saw this thread title and thought "A gif? That can't be right!"

 

I'm glad to see I was right.

“I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.

Hahaha...  What if I had been more specific with my units...

A gif per hour?  A gif per word (can you imagine?!)  A gif per goal per post? 

 

We'll stick with "a gif per whenever I feel like it", lol

No thread hijacking intended, but getting through the miserable Boston conditions wouldn't have happened without Emd!  The level of support and dedication she showed getting in line at the bar at 7am to see me for 30 seconds 7 hours later was amazing!

It was a struggle to start that early... but here is the proof of his family's dedication...and Irish coffee *is* a coffee drink.  Totally acceptable for 8 o'clock in the morning.

I must confess my first thought was "one of these things is not like the other.." lol

Brave and hearty crew to venture out in that kind of weather!

Then I walked with a friend and her kids...just a mile, and we strolled, so it doesn't count as cardio (my heart rate can't possibly have gone up), but it was nice.

Counts! At least towards heart health, and double with a friend cause hearts gonna heart.
