So, I've been thinking a lot about how to celebrate the big 2-0 when it comes. It'll be the big 1-0 for my time during the study but 2-0 since March.
So, what makes a good reward? I already bought new work out clothes, a holder for my ipod for when I run. and a computer for my bike so I can keep my speed more consistent.
Maybe, just maybe, I'll sink some money into the photos I want to get at DragonCon this year. For the unindoctrinated, DragonCon is like ComicCon, only it happens in Atlanta. It's just as big, just as much fun, and less driven by the studios. I go every year and I love it! One of the things to do at these events is get a photo taken with celebrities. They're generally expensive. Someone I want a photo with is John Barrowman, but it's like $75.

Today has been an amazing day. I posted the photo that is now my profile picture up on my facebook wall and the response has been overwhelming. I know, it's a cheater angle, and I know I've posed really well; but, I feel like I look -ahem- good.
Do you have any idea how long it's been since I felt that way?
Do you have any idea how long it's been since other people expressed feeling the same way, too?
I was just showing off my Starfleet Academy t-shirt, not even trying to imply that I've lost a lot of weight...
It was just a great day :)
Now, I mentioned in my video blog that my highest weight ever was 230 pounds. Well, this morning I stepped on the scale and I was down to 211.2. That's almost 20 pounds lost since MARCH.
I'm feeling motivated and awesome.
Today's canundrum is keeping myself from binging at my brother's movie celebration tonight. I'm going to plan out what I'll get before I leave the house and only drink water at the theater. I got this in the bag!

Today was the second exercise I had in biking to work. Grand total of about six or seven miles round trip, but I find myself so very happy when they're over!
Today I was fortunate enough to have my Aunt who is a personal trainer review my training plan for the 5K. She seemed pleased with not only the pace I plan to progress but also that I'm cross training on the weekends.
Green bars are my planned fitness minutes, purple bars are actual minutes; Blue line is projected weight loss and red is actual. Yes, I came up with this pretty little chart all on my own. :)
In other news related to biking to work I have discovered that the trail I go one direction on for my weekend ride is in fact a tough mamma jamma in the other direction! No joke, I have no idea how a trail can be uphill both ways, but this one is! There were a lot of curses that were spewn as I conquered the trail today, that's for sure!
Well, on to the weekend!

Just a rambling blog. Things to be proud of and a hope not to offend anybody.
