We Now Return to Your Regularly Scheduled Blogging

Taxes are done! And I'm getting a refund! Yay!

I can't believe it's been ten days since my last post. I have no idea where the time has gone--I feel like I blinked and somehow missed the past week.

Working out: I went to BodyPump three days in a row last week, Wednesday morning (6:00!), Thursday evening, and Friday afternoon. I'm not sure why I did that, but I don't think I'll ever do that again. By the end of Friday's class, I was so tired and sore, especially in my triceps. I wasn't as good about cardio workouts, but I did spend about twenty minutes on the elliptical machine on Tuesday and Saturday. And there's a dog living in my house now, and I took him for a brief walk a couple times.

Eating: I really haven't been very good about watching what I eat. I haven't even been writing in my food journal. I am still drinking way more pop than I want to be drinking, but I have almost doubled the amount of water I drink too, so I'm very well hydrated. The only other good thing that I have to mention is that I've been eating breakfast every day.

Weigh-in: I did manage to remember to weigh myself on Saturday, though I didn't get to it until the evening. I worked all day Saturday and didn't make it to BodyPump. I was one pound lighter than I was the previous Saturday, though.

I went to my parents' house yesterday and while I was there I picked up my old bike. It needs to be cleaned up and tuned up a little too, but I hope to do quite a bit of bike-riding this summer. Lincoln supposedly has an excellent network of bike trails, but I've never been on a single one. Anyone want to join me?

If you go biking with me this summer, please don't make fun of my bike. I picked it out for my 12th birthday, and it's obviously a little bit childish. But it is still the perfect height/size for me. Maybe I'll try to paint it and make it look a little more like a bike owned by someone over the age of fourteen. And hey, at least it doesn't have tassels on the handlebars!

Great job on losing a pound. And for getting to BP three times, even if it was 3 days in a row. Guess we'll all know not to try that.
I am really enjoying having an online food journal. That way I can update it throughout the day, like at work (on my breaks of course). Then I don;t have to remember everything at the end of the day.
Thanks for the post!
