Woah. It’s been a while. And I’m super busy, so I’m going to keep this short and sweet and to the point for this evening.
Thanksgiving was a doosy (spelling?) of emotions. I finished the Troy Turkey Trot, thanks to a good friend to push me along the way. That confirmed my idea of being way out of shape. And confirmed the fact that I MUST run the half marathon… in less than a month now. I will do it.
Total weight loss this week: 2.2 pounds!
Total weight loss to date (week 4): 7.2 pounds! That’s right, I hit my five percent weight goal! Slowly but surely.
School has been c.r.a.z.y. with two fifteen page papers that need to be started/finished this weekend. But after that, it will be smooth sailing for the remainder of the semester.
I made the decision earlier in the week to transfer to the Troy campus, same position, new location. This means I will be able to walk to work. Everyday. Couldn’t get any better. Oh, other than being able to come home and nap in my own snuggly bed or enjoy lunch with Roscoe. Tomorrow is my last sushi Friday with the gang, but I’m looking at it as saving myself ten bucks now each week.
As I quickly rush back out into the cold to grab a slice at my favorite pizza place and a cold one to hold onto while enjoying a round of skeeball with Joe, I’ll leave you with this (lovely, photogenic) photograph of myself. I was pretty darn proud of myself last night. I had a HORRIBLE debate and review from the professor/dean/all holiness himself and just wanted to throw in the towel. Instead, I arrived home, changed into my running clothes, and went out for 3.85 miles. At 9:30 p.m. After a day of work and class. To avoid overeating. Yeah, it was just what I needed. I slept like a baby.
Tis the season to be sweaty. I mean merry.
