Another week and another loss. That sounds bleak actually...but it's not. I lost 1.4 pounds this week for a total of 21.2 so far! I'm excited and pleased. Even though I followed the plan all week I had a sinking feeling I wasn't going to lose weight this week. I think because I lost over 3 pounds last week I was expecting some sort of correction, like in the housing market I guess But no, on plan and lost weight just as it should be.

I'm pretty much convinced I'm an early dinner eater. If I don't eat by 7pm I'm a stomach-growling maniac. Of course, it's 8:20pm while I'm writing this and I haven't eaten dinner. Trying to wait for my husband to get home but he's taking too long. Anyway. Still getting closer to my "must exercise" weight. 12.6 more pounds and if I haven't started by then, I will. My heart's in the right place but my ass is still on the couch. Gonna have to have a heart-to-ass talk I think. Here's wishing all of you a great weekend!!

Wow. Good week! Lost 3.2 pounds this week. That's a record. I've been waiting for the desire to start exercising to occur naturally but have set a weight at which if it hasn't occurred by then, I will force the issue. Well, I'm inching closer to that weight so I'm beginning to think a lot more about what I'll do. I downloaded the "couch to 5k" podcasts from itunes a few weeks ago and just synced them to my ipod. I have to admit, I'm a little self conscious about actually running in public. Even though it's only for 60 seconds at a time I fear I'll look like a cow trying to run on its hinds legs! I know I shouldn't care know.... It's times like these I wish it got darker earlier and I could run under cover of night

Then there's always our little gym I made a while back. Has a bowflex and a crosstrainer in it. Before, I was doing cardio and weights on alternating days in there. Lately though, I've been really in love with being outside. The weather just makes me want to sit in a park and read a book, eat cold grapes and listen to the children play. Anyway, that's not exercise So, I'm thinking of doing the couch-to-5k thing. I also figure if I need to I can extend it to 18 weeks (it's a 9 week plan) and do each week twice. I'm really out of shape people. I just had the thought to go run in a park or somewhere with a trail instead of on the street where cars driving by will increase my sense of self-consciousness.

Yesterday was jam-packed. Art festival, picnic, concert in the evening. Today, I'll be playing Ghost Recon on the Xbox and maybe watching Grey Gardens, my current Netflix offering. But damn it's nice outside, so maybe I'll get out there instead [or too - lots of hours left in this day].

Gotta close with a WOO-HOO...3.2 pounds gone!!
