I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I stepped on the scale. After all sorts of unexpected things happening yesterday, including my cheat meal I still lost. I reached my goal for the week of being at 138! I also lost 1.25 in. overall, although most of that was on the top half instead of the bottom! So unfair! I just got back from a sunny, but cool walk on the trail for 60 min. Now I need to hit the shower and pack. My bf is teaching a class a couple hours away and I'm meeting him later today. He left at 5:00 to be there by 7:00 and since I can't check in to the motel until 3:00 there was no reason for me to go that early. This is our spring break vacation, ha ha! We decided to get our new puppy Tues. night, but I'm thinking I'll pick her up tomorrow and surprise him when he gets here since I'll get back first. Hopefully I'll be able to get wireless when I'm gone and can check in with my sparkers!

Well, today turned out quite a bit different than I had planned. I finished cleaning up my kitchen and was dressed to head outside for some steady state cardio. My bf and I have talked some about living together "some day". We haven't made any definite plans. There is this really nice house in town and he decides he wants to go see it. We called the realtor and we ended up fitting it in between his appts. and ours for the day. I had to fly through the shower and be there in an hour. Then I ended up going into work for a few hours because we start back to school Monday. After that we looked at a bunch of houses on line and may go look at a few later this week. Of course, all the while, I'm wondering how this seemed to come out of the blue. We are trying to decide whether to look where I live or look where he lives, which is where we both work. My son will be a freshman next year and I won't move him out of his school. It kind of makes sense to live where we both work, but we would have to get him to school for little over a year until he could drive himself. Lots to think about and absorb.
Then we ended up going out to eat dinner with my older son and his gf. I ended up eating my cheat meal tonight which blows my weigh in for tomorrow. I probably would have been down slightly, but when I weighed this morning I had stayed the same as last week. Oh well... Then we got a call that we can pick up our puppy tomorrow, but we're going to be out of town tomorrow night so we will get her Sun. or Tues. night. So many things to consider, but all of them wonderful! (Except the part about me not losing this week)!

Some of you may have read this on one of my teams so sorry for the repeat and I'm posting this late.
My bf and I decided to go out for a short while last night to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. We ended up in the small bar where I live. If you don't like people who are vain (I'll admit to being one) stop reading now! The first person I see is my ex-bf's wife (we are friendly, long story) who comes up and asks "what are you doing, just shriveling away"? I said I work out a lot and have been on this great website and have a trainer. She asks me who and I say she's an on-line trainer. She then asks me how I stay motivated when Karen isn't right here pushing me. Blah, blah and she leaves by telling me how great I look. Did I mention that she is not yet 30 yrs. old and I just turned 50! (Yes, he dated women from every age group as you can tell)!
Later, I see my old neighbor who used to live next door. She comes up and tells me how great I look and asks what I've been doing. She's always been thin and has worked out so this was a nice compliment. She told me several times, "wow, you look great". Made my day! And PS, I didn't drink beer either.
Today's workout was lower body ST and 90 min. of yardwork, with my son helping again!
