If you are like me, you haven't been able to get Chicago singing "Saturday In the Park" out of your head today.
OK, chances are, not many of you are like me...
Anyway. It's not Sunday but I took a picture anyway. Last week, for the first time in a couple months, I gained weight. Not a lot of weight, about three pounds. I'd like to say it's because I did strength training three times last week (instead of two as I have been doing), but c'mon, it's because I had ice cream on Sunday and an italian dinner on Wednesday and over the last two weeks finished a six pack of beer.
I did run 10 something miles over four days, and I'm getting faster and feeling stronger. I'm still having trouble with the strength training, I'm getting my reps in but it's hard. I may need more protein or some other element of my diet needs a correction.
Regardless, I'm not concerned about the weight (my clothes fit great, I feel fit, this is temporary and I will not be buying beer anytime soon).
And here's a picture. What the hell.
