Day 250 - 152.6

Not much to report, other than I'm at a "mile marker" day--one that ends in a five and a zero. And I'm back down into the 152's, which is a sweet place to be.

No running yesterday. Sophie's pediatrician appointment (which went fine--no new answers, those will hopefully come on Nov. 7 with the neurologist) at 3:15 p.m. threw out my plans for running, and even though I'd psyched myself up for a run after the kids were in bed, it just didn't happen. I still lay down with my 6 year old to help her sleep (it's the best part of my day--I'm not giving it up until she does!), and by 8:30 I was asleep with her. So much for night running.

Food was good yesterday and I kept my calories at 1510. Hoping for a repeat of that today.

It's a gorgeous fall day, and will be in the upper 60s, maybe 70 by my 4 pm running time. I'm planning on a five miler.

I got the Afterburn program yesterday, and have briefly looked through it. It's not written for newbie weight lifters, so I'm gonna have to get a "Weight Lifting for Dummies" book to figure out what I'm supposed to be doing. He has pictures and instructions, but uses terms that I'm not familiar with. I really want to start lifting weights--Nancy was talking about it in her post on Monday 10/29, so I know the universe is prompting me in this direction. Gotta get something going on that front, sooner or later.

Wow!! 250 days.. I hope I can hang on for that long! LOL

You will love weight lifting.. the changes that you see in your body from week to week are amazing... I'm talking more strength, more shape in the glutes (butt), upper arms, and legs!! Let me know if I can help with any of the lingo.. I've gotten to be pretty good at it!

Have a great day and a great run tonight!!

The kid at the gym told me I would probably gain 5 pounds in the beginning of a weight training program then start losing weight quickly. After some calculations, he thought my goal weight should be 154 pounds (with a certain percentage - can't remember what the number was - of lean body mass.) That seemed high, but I wasn't able to maintain or lose more weight after 168 pounds!

I'll be interested in what you learn.

Thanks for your sweet, sweet comment (I really wasn't fishing for compliments, I'm just amazed how two people, that looked nothing alike during childhood or in there 20's now look alike - it's crazy)

there have been days when I would probably trade sleep for running, but if I can't sleep I might as well run...
