Well, guys, on this election day in the US, I hope that those who can vote, do. I don't care who you vote for (frankly, it's none of my business); I just care that you take the time to influence our country.
Now, onto Sparkling relevent topics.
First off, my scale finally moved this morning. I'm down to 193.6 after spending 17 days teetering around 195 - 196. Here's hoping a trend has been broken! I hope my plateau is dead!
Yesterday was my first cold weather run... ever.
I mean that literally.
It was 40 degrees, a little breezy, and sunny. A lot like today.
And I loved it.
I wasn't too hot - I wasn't too cold, and I felt like a real trooper! I mean, there was just me and a hardcore looking runner out there. LOVED IT. So, I'm running again today over to FKC. I'm also hoping their scale agrees with my scale that I'm down about 2lbs since they last weighed me in.
For those that have been keeping track a while, you know I have all my charts and graphs. Well, today it was fun to look at my numbers.
To date I have a net-loss of 26.4 pounds since starting the IDEA study. That's actually 36.4 since my all time high. This loss is a 12% reduction in my total body weight. I have 33.6lbs to go until I reach my goal weight. Last, and certainly not least, my BMI is at 29.4. Getting much deeper into "overweight" and away from "obese."
These are today's numbers. I hope they keep on doing what they're supposed to!
So, today's parting message: VOTE!
