Up to date- Kajukenbo, biking and escrima

So it appears my last post was last year.  (This does seem to let you search by poster so it will have to be.)  Sorry for the disappearance.

In summary...
I made 2nd degree black belt in Kajukenbo on 10/13/11.
I started taking an Escrima class in May or June.
I joined myfitnesspal.com in May by osmosis from seeing Timpani on it and me beginning to look at my stomach askance.
I started riding the SWEET 21 speed bike Timpani picked up at a yard sale for a song.
I have lost 15 lbs. and counting since May!
I am pretty happy w/the progress.  I'm not particularly dieting just being mindful what I eat and upping the exercise level.
One of my milestones has been, riding the bike to Edwardsville Esic YMCA and then back from my friend's house in Edwardsville.  (I did this because my car was not to be driven and due to be repaired, I had driven T's car all week and did not wish to strand her again w/Puckettlings, I had my escrima class and a D & D game in Edwardsville.) The plan was 20 miles.  In turned into 26 because of me getting confused on bike paths.  The best part was not feeling dead at the end.  It was not like that it did not happen, but I was not a complete waste after it.
