I did Day 1, Week 7 of the C25K last night and it went well. I did another 2 miles in 25 minutes. I really want to up the speed in my next run so that's my goal for day 2.
This weekend is going to be another busy one but will be lots of fun. I'll weigh-in in the morning and as of today (I'm a daily weigher...I know, I know...save the lectures), I expect to lose 2 pounds which will put me around 64.4 pounds lost. I love that the scale reflects a good week, but I don't love that, if the trend continues, I can expect a 1.2 or 1.4 gain this coming week for NO APPARENT REASON! Sorry about the yelling, but I'm ready to get off this little roller coaster that I've been on since the beginning of the month. Can you tell TOM is around the corner? lol...
Tomorrow night is the start of Husker football and I can't wait! Hopefully this year goes better than the previous few. We have a new head coach who is full of fire and energy so Husker Nation is pumped to see what he's done with the lackluster team of the past 5 years of the BC era. We're going to a sports bar to watch it since it's on pay-per-view. I haven't been there since last season but I'm pretty sure I know what I'm ordering for dinner....their deep-fried chicken breast sandwich! I think this will be my first fried, battered chicken breast in 9+ months. So yes, I'll be saying good-bye to some weekly points but it'll be worth it! lol...
Sunday is the MUD RUN! I still need to find a cheap pair of shorts that I don't mind getting extremely dirty and possibly ruined. You see, I workout in capri-style yoga pants ....which would collect lots of mud and I don't really want them ruined. I figure shorts would collect the least amount of mud...but then again, that's more mud to clean off of my body in the "make-shift" showers they provide. Hmmm....now I'm not sure which would be best! I found an old sports bra, which actually fits "the girls" again thanks to the extreme shrinkage I've experienced! lol... My husband would back me on that statement. ; ) And I'm wearing a freebie t-shirt that I will just toss afterwards. I also found a very tired pair of Nikes that I will do the same with after the run. I plan to take my camera and will definitely post some pics here next week.
We're both off on Monday for Labor Day, so we're bottling our Nut Brown Ale and will be brewing another batch of our Vanilla Porter since the first one turned out so well. We'll have lots of nice brews for the fall and winter months.
Hey, check out my new avatar in the right-hand menu. Cute, huh? I spent lots of time playing around with it yesterday. You can dress them all sorts of ways with different backgrounds and animation. I'm kind of a dork with things like this! I'll probably change it up every now and then. I got it free here.
I hope you all have a nice long weekend and I'll check back in next week!
