Fat-Free Friday

Let's get right to it: I lost another 1.2 pounds this week, despite some not-so-perfect eating choices, putting me at 160lbs exactly. Oh 150's, I am knocking on your door!

Other than that...I got nothing. I really wish that I had more of an update for today, but my week has been pretty dull. I worked, worked out, playing with my kiddos and watched TV. Have any of you ever watched, "Who Do You Think You Are", where they look up the ancestry of different celebrities? It's quite interesting. I was watching a few old episodes and MAN - Lisa Kudrow's was SO depressing! I can't even imagine going through what her family experienced. It was very sad, but I'm glad I watched it. Anyway...if you have any interest in history, it's a pretty cool show to watch. That and the Little Couple.

The other little thing I want to mention is about running. I've decided that when I run outside (I usually run 5k) I won't worry too much about my speed. As I've said, I'm not a fast runner. But, when I run on the treadmill (DREADmill) at the gym, the I will work on a faster pace. My mini-goal is to be able to run at 6.1 for at least 10 minutes straight. I don't exactly know what I picked that, but nonetheless, I'm sticking with it! I started at two minutes, and each time I go to the gym I add 30 seconds of running time at that speed. So, I've made it to 3 1/2 minutes without dying, and next time I'll aim for 4 minutes. I like having something to work at, and if it makes me a slightly faster runner in the end, then great. If least I've burned some extra calories, right?

I hope everyone has a good weekend. Stay safe!
