Nathan Russell Photography better get ready.  40-pound photos are not that far off. :)

As I said in last week’s post, teaching is a good weight loss program.  I barely have time to sit during my 30-minute lunch, let alone eat an entire meal.  By the way, my go-to packed lunch looks something like this:

•  Sandwich: Nature’s Own Whole Grain Sandwich Round, black peppered turkey
breast, pickles, red pepper hummus
•  Pop chips
•  FRUIT – usually 2 of the following: grapes, orange, apple, banana
•  String cheese – 1 piece for lunch, 1 piece for the drive home
•  Fiber One 90-calorie bar – Chocolate Peanut Butter is the best!
•  Diet Coke or sparkling water

I honestly don’t get that tired of this line-up.  More on packing school lunches later.

This week was somehow harder at school than last week.  Wednesday was a particularly rough day, and I was not in a great mood when I got home.  However, instead of sitting down in front of the TV to drink a beer and watch Chopped all night, I changed into my workout clothes and ralked.  2.4 miles.  In 30 minutes.  I also ran for 8 minutes without stopping at the beginning of the ralk.

You guys this is unheard of.

It was, by far, my fastest time when it comes to ralking.  I had just put in over 11 hours at school, and I still managed to completely kick ass.

This weekend was good for working out as well – I ralked over 6 miles total on Saturday and Sunday around the lake!  (It obviously helped that the weather was the most glorious it’s been in a long time.)  Ralking around that lake might be one of my favorite things to do. The scenery is obviously so beautiful, and the people watching is sublime.  You’re an endless source of entertainment, ATX.

Plus, there’s this:

I truly love this city.  Like I love cheesecake.  (Shut up – I know this is weight-loss blog.  But you know how much I love cheesecake…)

Here’s to another losing week.  Maybe 40 pounds next week?  Let’s not get too overboard here, folks.  Deep breaths.  :)
