A Relaxing Saturday

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!

    You amaze me! Keeping off weight under stressful work conditions I think is harder than losing it in the first place.

    Hooray for a break! And hooray for continued weight loss under those conditions! Keep it up! You’re doing us all proud!

    145 pounds! Fabuloso! Also – I was rooting for the other person on Project Runway too – so disappointed in the outcome. Boring.

    But your results are not boring! 🙂 Can’t wait to hear that you hit your next goal. See you soon.

      Super boring, indeed. But we both know the other person will make more waves in the fashion industry, so does it really matter? I suppose the money would have been nice.
