I also learned that my dog is an even worse jogging partner than my sister's dog. He was actually slowing down my running at points and he got tired before I did. At one point when I was running, he came to a dead stop in the middle of the track. That isn't including his attempts to stop and mark or to greet the other walkers and joggers. I have to take him with me for the rest of the week so hopefully he has a learning curve.
Yesterday, I took my first ballet class in about 10 years. It felt really good. I was surprised by how much of the muscle memory is still there though my balance needs some work. I'm a bit sore today and I'm taking that as a sign that I should go back next week. I think this will be a nice addition to my regular swing dancing routine. Plus a class is definitely going to be more consistent exercise than social dancing.
I started tracking my calorie intake using MyFitnessPal.com. My first resolution is to never eat at the Burger King next to work ever again. Good thing Subway is only a little bit farther. I've never really done calorie counting before since I've preferred to change how I eat and skip tracking food. This seems to be pretty doable since the calorie counts for foods are listed in a database. I am at the very least going to give it a try.
