      Wow, lovely cave pictures, thanks for sharing them!

        TheLibrarian Whirly JCU Fremen CaptainCanuck sunpetal Gandhalfit CarbonaraTamara - Thank you all! (: One of the reasons why I like visiting Karst caves in the summertime is that it's nice and cool inside (that one was 10°C).

        Workout:
        Core Control (4/30).
        Upperbody Light Challenge (19/30).
        8 weeks to 5k (8/30) - walked/ran 2.19 km. Wanted to do Dash! but it's 37°C outside. I really need to start doing workouts in the morning.
        I also did Combat Light.

        Meditation Challenge (29/30).

        Read 1 poem + 1 chapter of Atomic Habits. Found this nice quote: "When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure." I sometimes need to remind myself that weight isn't everything, which is why I also take progress pictures every 3 months - I've found that this time frame works best for my motivation, seeing my body change keeps me going. (:

          That's a healthy attitude, best of luck (all of the above)

              Read 3 poems. I'm reading this poetry from a young Serbian poet and it's nice, I like it.

                One thing I wish I had done earlier, and you may choose to do, is get a good measurement on your chest, biceps, hips, waist, etc. (obviously you won't track each of these ). You can use this information to track your progress along with the pictures and scale weight. You could also use the US Navy formula to calculate your body fat percentage (it can be found pretty easily via Google and won't cost any money). I've notice I've gained a bit of muscle as I've gone along which has changed my scale weight and made tracking somewhat more difficult. Since I didn't get a good reading at first I haven't really been able to enjoy the progress as much as if I knew exactly where I started. Just a suggestion though it certainly isn't necessary.

                              Baryl - Thank you for the recommendation! I found it, calculated my BF%, and according to the formula I'm around 23.3%, which is cool and surprisingly low. I've been considering investing in a scale that could tell me my fat and muscle mass percentages for some time now, I just need to actually get myself to order it at some point. (:

                              Workout:
                              I wanted to start working out in the morning so, naturally, I woke up early and didn't go for a run. Then I watched this inspiring YouTube "doc" about this guy who went from being very overweight to a marathon runner. I finished the video, closed my laptop, and went outside for a run. I started running in the park, where it's a bit colder and then I got bored and tried getting to another spot and the heat was really getting to me. I ended up running 4.1km in one go (took me about 31 mins), and I walked another 1 km to finish my route. I'm very clone to getting to 5k and maybe I shouldn't be an idiot and actually work out when the temperatures are a bit lower.

                              I also went walking with a friend, we did 6.62 km. Good day.

                              I'm getting my 2nd shot of the COVID vaccine tomorrow so I think I'll be taking it easy in the next couple of days. My goal is to at least do some light stretching so that I keep my streak going. I'm super excited to be vaccinated, finally! (:

                                Great job getting that run in! Hooray for that inspiring YouTube video.

                                Also congrats on your second dose!
