The Houston Museum of Natural Science is having an archaeopteryx exhibit. Last night they had a members' event that had refreshments and a special viewing of the exhibit. There were also paleontologist and geologists throughout the exhibit to explain the significance of the fossils. The kids were enthralled. I think I had my mouth hanging open most of the time too. When I grow up, I definitely want to be a paleontologist!
A few of the fossils we saw: (there are so many more pics of turtles, marine lizards, insects, saltwater crocodiles, etc but I couldn't post them all)
- run 3x a week
- reach 5 mile goal
- track all food
- keep a deficit each and every day (even my birthday)
- cross train at least twice a week (swim, strength, spin, walk, etc)
- lose 5 pounds (more would be wonderful)
- drink my water every day
- look for one new experience
Last month I did not achieve my goals. I got a little lazy. I did have new experiences though: camped at a new campground and did a 6k with my family.
For some motivation I bought a training journal and a daily motivational book:
Please join me this month in sticking to goals. Misery loves company and I'd love to know that I'm not the only one out here getting down and dirty in the fitness department. :)
I've got my bodybugg on and I'm ready to hit the trails and burn up some calories. I should mention that I now have a lovely striped tan around my arm where the bodybugg sits. LOL I'll have to share a photo in a future post.
Have a lovely weekend.
*EDIT: If you saw Biggest Loser and the 5K last week then you may be interested to read the blog of someone who ran in it.*
