Weigh In Thursday

10 Nov

I weighed in yesterday morning at 160.4, down 2.5 pounds from the week before.  I’m almost in the 150’s!  That’s pretty exciting.  I’m starting to have to evaluate my wardrobe for what is becoming too loose, or what I’ll have to replace soon.

I’m thinking a bit about exercise and cooking too, and how I can fit them both into my schedule without taking up too much of my time.  I’m thinking I may have to concede that I need to plan quick meals for weeknights, rather than cooking sessions which inevitably get pushed back because I’m too tired or hungry after working all day then exercising.  I may also try a workout calendar, to plan ahead and make sure I’m getting in exercise almost every day.

I’m also planning to ramp up my running a bit.  I’m going to run another 5K in a few weeks, and will probably sign up for a 10K sometime in January or February.  My ultimate goal right now is the Napa to Sonoma Half Marathon in July.

Speaking of running, I need a new playlist badly.  I’ve been listening to the same playlist of punk and pop punk since I began running, so now I’m looking for upbeat pop/rock.  Any suggestions?
