1.5 down, hope is up

Monday, May 02, 2011

So this morning I weighed in.

I hate my scale. Not because of the number that it shows me (although that can be annoying) but because it is old and sort of gross and in my cellar. It's way too big to put in my tiny bathroom, and some "gunk" has materialized on the plastic so it can be a little hard to read. But I believe that the needle stopped somewhere between 160 & 161. Not in the 150s, as I had hoped but - oh well maybe next week.

I am happy about my physical activity. Yesterday I ran nearly 5 miles before heading to church and then did another 4 later in the day on a new path.

My new job is in Unity Maine and Unity has a nice park called the "Field of Dreams" each loop on the path around the parameter of the park = 1 mile. How cool is that???

I love finding new places to run.

Food is going better.

Water seems to be the battle right now.

And I'm holding up my plan to check in on SP more often.

So things are looking pretty good.

The new job is going well, but I'm pretty tired. It's not physically demanding but there's a lot to learn which is tuckering me out a bit on the mental/thinking side. It's a very busy time around campus as commencement is this weekend and everything needs to be in and ready for that.

So all and all things are good.

Unfortunately, my husband and I are going through a bit of a trial but we'll get through it. It's just stressful in the moment, you know???

Cheers my friends and I hope your Monday is as sunny as ours is in Central Maine.

- Heather

You go, Bovino! Love that weight loss!
My downfall is eating, but I've been getting more than 8 glasses a day. I just hope to hit the almost gallon mark before 8pm PST.

I like the 1 mile loop, makes it so easy to keep track. I hate having to go around a certain number of times before i make I mile, I lose track every time. The pedometer comes in handy, but pray that my stride length is accurate. LOL

Been enjoying my time at Planet Fitness. I'm an addict. All I have to do is get there... then it's ON!
