Good Evening, FS Warriors!

We are having some pretty warm days here in the Land of Lincoln. Somewhere around 97 yesterday, and about the same today, though I would swear that the humidity made it feel like 105. I've only been back on my workout routine for a couple of weeks now, but I decided to see where I stand so I would be able to set some realistic goals for myself in the 5K or half marathon. I ran a mile today, hot as it was, to get some kind of base info. I came it at 12:26. I wasn't a speed demon before and I am certainly not one now. However, for being 66 and over 50 pounds overweight, I guess I cannot complain. I think I can realistically shoot for about 39:00 in the 5K, and I hope to be able to do about 2:45 in the half next spring.

I've been watering all of the roses, the garden and all of the other plants and trees we planted every other day. I do not have the luxury of having installed sprinkler systems, so I am hauling out about 200 feet of hose every time I do it. But it is paying off. We haven't had any rain, and the tomato plants are as big as I am – literally. I mowed the church acreage today and drove some t-posts to support some of the bigger trees that are leaning or bending. Like I said, it was hot, so I did not want to overdo it.

Bible College lessons are still demanding, but they are going well. I will finish my present course up in another five weeks, and then there is a semester break for six or seven weeks. I am really looking forward to that. I hope to get some things done, get in some fishing, and even do some motorcycle riding. I'm still fighting the fat monster, but I think I'm doing better. I have to put some new batteries in the idiot box. It's really kind of weird because when we bought this scale, the first batteries lasted about five years; now they seem to be lasting about six months.

Well, I've got to get back to work on my studies. I put off my assignments till the evening because I have so many projects, and then end up finishing up my assignments about midnight or one in the morning. I guess I'm too much of a perfectionist to just meet the minimums. I know that getting the proper amount of sleep has a lot to do with weight loss, but I've feel like I've compromised on sleep for the last 50 years; why stop now?

Well, enjoy the rest of your weekend. Toodles!
