What a nice Saturday it has been so far. I slept in, for the first time in weeks, until about 10:30. No alarms, no waking up and immediately racing through the day’s to-do list.
I plodded into my living room and finished watching the finale of Project Runway on my TiVo (I had fallen asleep with it on last night). I won’t spoil for anyone that hasn’t seen it yet, but I was rooting for the other person to win.
I wasn’t very hungry today – still full from the chili and cheesecake I had last night, I suppose, but I ate a pear and a yogurt to get something in my system, and since I woudn’t make it to Richard Simmons’ class on time, I headed down to the tiny little gym in my building.
There’s a bike, an elliptical, a simple bowflex-type dealie, and some free weights. I don’t come down here often, because most of the time I feel more committed to my workouts if I have to actually leave my house to complete them, but today I did 50 minutes on the bike, and worked up a nice sweat. The bike has games in the control panel, so I played a Tetris knock-off called “Fat-Blocker” while pedaling away.
The rest of the day will include laundry, bills, and since I’m nine episodes behind on Mad Men (!), maybe I’ll watch a few of those, too.
I also weighed myself today. Down another pound! That was a nice surprise – I thought my recent general lack of exercise, my failure to keep a food log, and the big piece of cheesecake I had last night would mean that my little plateau would continue, but nope! I attribute that pound that my healthy eating (cheesecake excluded).
That’s a total of 145 pounds lost, and only 7 pounds to go until I reach my next goal!
Time to update the chart:
Keep it up, David!
