This morning I didn't get to the gym because I was at the preschool doing a Valentine's Day craft with the kids. After the kids were finished with the craft (at 10am), I came home and did a 30 min wii run (best time yet) and according to the wii, I ran 3.8 miles. Which I needed, because I had another .4 lb weight gain. It's 53 degrees today (whoohoo! heatwave!) and everything is thawing like crazy. I can see grass peeking at me from the backyard and that makes me sooo happy! I'm really looking forward to spring when I can go for runs outdoors. Sadly, temps will be back in the low thirties for the rest of the week, so we're not there yet.

When I started cycle 3 of this diet, I was really worried that the added carbs in my diet were going to stall my weight loss, but so far that hasn't been the case. After exercising and drinking maybe 40oz of water yesterday, I'd lost another 0.9 lbs this morning. Three more pounds to go and I will have lost a grand total of 20 lbs. I think I can manage that before March. Yeah! I got another wii run in. Not as fast as yesterday, but it said I ran 3.7 miles. I'm sure this is a grossly inflated number, but at least I was moving.

I was absorbed in my writing and forgot to eat
Another loss of 1.1 lbs this morning (I'm down to 165! Yee-ha!)! I'm hoping it will all stay off, but some of that weight loss probably has to do with the emptiness of my stomach without any dinner in it. Today I have power sculpting at the gym (my muscles are already sore just thinking about it) and then I have to come home and clean like the wind because my mom and step-father are coming to visit us for a week. And then go grocery shopping. I have a feeling this week will be a whirlwind. I spent a couple of hours today menu planning, too, because on top of my diet, my mom has a nightshade allergy, and can't eat anything made from tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, etc. That certainly complicates things. I think I settled on Greek chicken lemon rice soup (which I've been craving), a pot roast minus the potatoes, a Morroccan chicken/apricot/almond tagine, and a white/veggie pizza. I bought a bunch of chicken that I can cook various other ways too. I'm going to be eating heavier meals than I normally do, and at night, and of all the weeks to do it, the gym is on winter break and there won't be any classes next week. The wii is going to be in heavy rotation next week. It's been my saving grace. Thanks Kira for letting me borrow it!
