Catchy title, eh?

Yesterday was a relatively good day, although as the day wore on (and I became more tired) the mood flattened somewhat. Nothing bad, just feeling stretched a bit thin (if only!)

Work done, I got home and changed pretty quickly, then went for my run. The first mile always sorta sucks, but then things started to feel better. Lately my legs have been feeling flat, but they picked up a bit more life and energy and I was able to just 'let go' and feel my body relax into the movement. Nice!

I finished up (still stinkin' slow, but every lb released is seconds deduced) and got home, changed up again, and Bill and I took Bub in for his shots and check-up. He's such a sweet happy boy, and everyone he meets think he's a lovebug, which he is. As long as you're not another dog LOL

That done, we got home and had a delish dinner (lemon-baked swai, baked sweet potato, and homemade coleslaw). A few nuts later for a snack, and I was more than ready for bed by 8:30.

I need to likely update my weight/nutrition/fitness info. I'm at a BMI of 35.8 right now. I'm eager to drop down below 30 - that'll put me in the Overweight range vs. Obese. I haven't been there before, but I'm determined to make it! That will be at 202 lbs. I'm closer than I was at the start of the year and that makes me very happy!

It did start raining last night as I was running. Not heavily, just a typical Portland rain. Made me think of this, as it often does.

I love this picture. This is my inspirational photo for my BLC weekend challenge.

I'm off to try and stay in my routine as much as possible while it's my day off. I've got a busy weekend ahead of me so today is suppose to be my 'off' day. Ha! We'll see how that goes.

    Love the pic. There is something about running in the rain, unless of course it's a downpour.

    Funny how that first mile (or two or three some days) is so hard to push through, then you find your stride and hit the 'sweet spot' where you can just let go and enjoy it, isn't it? Good job getting out there and staying on track!

    D'oh! Reading your blog explains your photo! Sorry I page posted before reading. Beautiful pic!

    Every pound off is a second shaved off running time-- what a great analogy, and good motivator when I'm feeling like the slow fat one in the gym.
