Down 2.0 Pounds

I’m sorry things have been short and sweet around here lately (due to school starting tomorrow), so here is some great news!

Weight loss this week: 2.0 pounds
Current weight: 200.6 pounds
TOTAL weight loss: 35.2 pounds

We’re back.  Close to being under 200 pounds, 35 pounds lost, etc.  Let’s not screw it up this time, Liz.  Walter went to the grocery store today and bought incredibly yummy and healthy food, and we just went for a ralk.  I ran almost a full mile in one fell swoop.  BAM.

A few thoughts for this week:
•  I am very seriously contemplating signing up for a half marathon in February (aww hell that’s WAY scarier when I see it in writing).  Thoughts?
•  Chili’s is the devil.  Story to follow when I have more time.  (The restaurant.  Not the kind of soup/stew or whatever the hell chili is.)
•  School starts tomorrow.  I will bring my lunch every day.  Being that I only get 30 minutes for lunch, I will so rarely be tempted to eat out.  A blessing in disguise.

Since I’ve started working a lot earlier in the morning than I used to, the sunrises have been plentiful.  Here are a few gems:

Makes that 45-minute drive almost worth it.  Almost.  :)

And we’re off to a new week.  For those of you who don’t know, tomorrow is my first day of school as a middle school band director.  Wish me luck!  And weight loss!

  1. When I first started running I ran a 5k in the beginning of December and then a 10k at the end of January. Being able to do those built up my confidence so much that I immediately signed up for a half marathon in June. I vote you take the same route….perhaps a Halloween 5k and a Thanksgiving 10k?! Holiday ones are always the BEST. You’ll still have plenty of time to sign up for that February half!

  2. I’m so excited that you are becoming a teacher!!! because I have been reading your blog all summer for inspiration, and now I can copy your brown-bag lunch recipes that I’m SURE are going to be brilliant. I suck at lunch-packing, but this is a new year!
