Today: 218.0 / LIW: 216.8 / Net: +1.2
Yay, down a bit. That always makes for a happier morning. 🙂
It was a bit chilly this morning… looks like we’ve got weather blowing in again. But, I went out for my run! Yay! I did 1.9 miles in the 30 minute C25K session today. I’m still pretty sore from the first run… but I persevered! The first half of the run was a bit stiff/sore in the legs (geez, I have never had this much pain in my inner thighs before!) but my breathing was doing pretty good. The second half, my legs loosened up & I was doing great there – but I was starting to suck wind. I still did it, though! Ran every time it told me to. But, boy was I really grateful for that “walk.now.” statement each time! LOL
Honestly, at this rate, I’ll have my 23.1 miles locked down for the Progressive Marathon & completing the 5K in under an hour will be a breeze! Of course… I’m going to have to take a bit of a run-break when I cycle back into my next VLC round. Which, if I decide for sure to ‘cycle’ this round, will begin next Monday (loading next weekend). Doing any running would be counterproductive & probably not safe. I’ll aim to walk a mile or two a day, though, just to keep my legs moving. The good thing about cycling will have me pretty darn close to my goal weight (if not hitting it) by the beginning of May. Then I can start really digging into the C25K program & getting my biking back into high gear. I think it would be super-awesome to complete a triathlon sometime in the next year!
Bestie came over today & we worked on getting our booth ready for the San Jose Fantasy Faire that we’re vendoring at next month. It’s being put on by the company that puts on Renaissance Festivals, so the rules are pretty strict on how the booths need to look. No metal showing, no pop-up roofs obvious… I have a couple rolls of canvas, so we cut out three panels and sewed them together to make non-plastic walls. That was a lot of canvas to wrestle around on the sewing table! 90″ tall by 615″ long! yowza. We also tossed together a “roof coozie” that I think looks pretty cute. Then, with wrapping the interior metal bits that hold up the roof with fake ivy & flower garlands… not too shabby!
I’ve got guests coming in to visit from out of town this next weekend (hence, the loading plan), and Bestie & I are hoping to convince them to help us paint some vine work on the plain canvas walls (which are a sort of sage green – so at least it’s not glaring white) to fantasy-glam the booth up a bit. 🙂
Breakfast was eggs scrambled with baby peppers and left-over chuck eye steak & coffee/cream.
Snack was macadamia nuts & Just The Cheese.
Lunch was a turkey burger patty with Swiss cheese and mustard & broccoli with butter.
Dinner was mushroom/turkey chili with a dolop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of cheddar.
