I chose wisely at dinner...but was totally shocked! I drank my normal, water with lemon at dinner. My husband got an iced tea. They charged him 2.99 for his ice tea. Guess what I was charged for my tap water?????? Or actually maybe they charged me for the lemon! 79 cents?? Yup....I would have carted my big fat water jug in and saved the 79 cents...who cares....79 cents is 79 cents! After diner we headed to the aforementioned CD release party. It was OK..not my favorite genre of music. This one was old style bluegrass music. (Marv Ashby and High Octane in case you care....we have recorded their last two CD's) The musicianship was good though, and they were entertaining...so all was good. Regardless, it was an evening of PR for our business. We left there at 11 or so.....got home at midnight. Of course I couldn't go right to bed....so I laid in bed and read a bit......
Regardless.....Sunday morning my alarm went off bright and early. I didn't ignore it. Even though it was cold and only 18 degrees. There was never any thought to ignore it. And by 7:30 I was at the battlefield (Antietam) and hopping out of my car to join up with Sherry. Day one week three of the couch to 5k is history. Did I mention that it was 18 degrees???? We even followed up the training run with a walk! (the walk is our extra time to chit chat). I was actually surprised at how 'easy' this one was. We actually ran a few 3 minute intervals. Yeah, doesn't seem like a big thing to a runner...but to a non-runner that's HUGE. And it really didn't bother me! :-) My breathing the first run/jog interval was choppy...but I focused and pulled it under control and all was fine. Sherry and I talked about my 240.9 stickiness on the scales. (yes, Friday, Saturday and first thing this morning I was ...you guessed it 240.9 on the scales). We came up with a few ideas and a few theories on my weight. We got some talking done and I feel great!
I did re-weigh myself when I got home....and was down one pound to 239.9. I'll take that number. I haven't lost my focus. Even when the scales popped up and even as they have remained the exact same all week, my focus and determination has not wavered. But I think I needed to see that number change....even if just to prove that my scales are not broke. :-) I think that today is going to be a stay at home relax and watch movie kinda day. That works for me!
Getting ready to enter in the food for the rest of my day.....add in my exercise...plan tomorrows eating. I'm hot on the trail of thin, svelte and HEALTHY!
