Weight I have lost

Sunday, September 14, 2008


I did it! I completed my weekend goal of riding my bike and running.

Today was my lazy day (as opposed to every other day). D and I went on our weekly date to Einstein's before he went to work. It almost didn't happen (the date) because Po was up all night, and I finally took her into the guest room and we slept (sorta) in there. I was tired at 7 and told D I didn't want to go, but then I thought about it, and decided I'd take a nap later. So we went and got bagels.

Then I went to the Hipster Kroger. Now last week, the Meat Police stopped us at the door and we had to pull our receipt and show them we did pay for the meat (chicken breasts were on sale for $1.99/pound). This time, as I was driving home, I recalled not loading the paper towels in the car. Oh well, I thought. So much for my brains. I got home, and put the groceries away and looked at the receipt. Yay! I never put the towels on the conveyor, so I didn't pay for them...but what is that...pork loin, $8, london broil, $2.50. Hmmm. I didn't put those away. So back to the HK I went. I went to Customer Service and we went to Lane 11 and there was my meat. The bag boy didn't put it in the cart. I was happy.

Incidentally...the London Broil was marked incorrectly, and I know that, but I wasn't telling HK that.

OK, so I got home and took the dogs for a walk. Po has been nickednamed Green Bean, as that is part of her diet now. She isn't supposed to exercise, but since she had been up all night, I think her leg was bugging her, so I let her run around.

Came home and we watched TV and facebooked.
The Redskins came on and we watched the first and 4th quarters. Took a nap for the 2nd and 3rd.

D came home and he made dinner...Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, and Elote. Yummy.

Then we looked at each other. And went Ehhhhhhhhh. We slowly got up and did what we had to do. Put on HRMs and shorts and shoes, etc. We decided since it was 85 degrees we would run at the track. So we drove over there, but no one was at the gym, so we went there instead (the HS is across from the gym). And we ran.

After, I told D that I was spent at .5 miles. He said he thought he was having a heart attack around that time. We decided we are fat and need to do this together...we listed all the reasons the run sucked...fat floundering came up more than once. So back on this crazy journey!

Indeed, I'm out of shape.
