The scale fluctuated back up a bit, but it seems to do that on days I don’t go to the gym or at least don’t work myself into a sweat. I’m still down by 2 pounds so far for this week though, and expecting a crazy big loss like I had last week is kind of ridiculous. 2 pounds is good!
Today has been busy, sort of. We started off the day with going to a movie, with popcorn and soda. I was careful not to eat tons of it, but I still counted what I ate as a whole bag of the stuff we have here at the house. We don’t have them add that fake butter stuff to it at the theatre, so it’s probably pretty close. The soda I let the bf have most of it too.
After that we came home and had real food. Hamburger helper, a new flavor for us.
Then I sat down at the table and spent just over an hour making bias tape for my Halloween dress. We’ve going to a party Saturday night and I am nowhere near done making it! After I finished making the bias tape, I grabbed my little Sansa Clip+ and headed out for the gym.
After yesterday’s totally lazy day of barely strolling along for half an hour, I decided to actually work a bit today. I did the full hour on the treadmill, plus the 5 minute cool-down. I averaged 3MPH, did 3.3 miles, and 65 minutes. That’s my best time/distance yet since I’ve been going. I have no doubts after today that by the end of next month I will be doing 4 miles/4MPH whenever I go in.
I’ve got 5.1 miles to go to meet my distance goal for the month. Saturday night its party time, but that leaves Sunday & Monday. I’m planning on at least 6 miles between those two days so that will bring me up to speed there. I’ve already met my time goal of 450 minutes (30 minutes per day) for this month. The weight loss goal of ten pounds I see happening next week sometime. Then I can move on to the next goal of 20 pounds.
Anyway, the day’s eats.

Now I’m back to working on my dress for tomorrow! I’m nearly finished now, just have to finish sewing on the bias tape, add two buttons, and it’s done!
Oh, and sometime in the next few days I’ll be adding an “About Me” page to this blog. Just not sure when.
