Happy Friday everybody!!!! I know it is for me! I have been happy as a lark all day. I have had quite the busy morning. I woke up and weighed and I have lost 5 more pounds over the last two weeks!!! I am down to 242 and headed for the 230 decade quick! And now for your math problem. If you have 2 X's and you take 1 X away, how big is your new shirt size? Give up? It's a XL!!! I had one XL shirt I talked about awhile back and I could wear it then, but today I put it on and it was not tight at all!!! I decided to have that by my shirt today. Then after thinking on it awhile, I remembered it seemed to me that it was cut a little big as it is an athletic shirt. So I told Kathy that I wanted to go to the new thrift store in Fort Smith that is like a Wal Mart in their organization but has a wider selection. I wanted another XL to confirm my size change. I had to wait though because I was on a mission today. I got my law school application finished and mailed out today and then I took my transcript request for LSAC to the registrar's office for them to send it in to all the law schools! I am still patiently waiting on my score, but I wanted to get things going ASAP! Then I had to sit down and study for my sociology test today and I just had the dangdest time! So finally I get done and meet Kathy for lunch at Chick Fil A. Their char grilled chicken salad is awesome with some mustard on it! I got a great meal for like 240 calories! We headed down the road to the thrift shop and I began to peruse the shirts to find one I would like. I wound up looking at a basic Nike t shirt with a small swoosh on it. It is a darker red and I know Nike tends to cut their shirts a bit smaller actually. So I bought it and put it on when I got home...... turns out I am an XL!! Thank the Lord above for that thrift store, cause my wardrobe is gonna need some tuning up soon! I ain't rich but they aint expensive either!
And for the coup de gras, I have proof I am addicted to walking now. I took Lauren to school this morning as usual and since there was no fruit at the house and I have fruit for my morning snack, I decided to drop in to Wal Mart for fruit. I never ever never work out on Fridays. No weights, no walking, no anything. I give myself that one day to rest and heal up. Well I wasn't in the store 5 seconds when it just hit me, I was in shorts and tennis shoes, I was in Wal Mart, and blam, it was decided before I even could protest to myself. Off I set for my usual 8 laps at speed no less. I have a problem folks. Not a bad one, but a problem. I am staying pat on jogging a mile and a half tomorrow, so Sunday could be interesting!
Ok, I am all bubblied out so I will see ya'll later. Kathy, Lauren and I are doing Ghost Stories by the Bon Fire at the Arkansas River tonight and hanging with our Girl Scout Troop and friends. It will be a great night and we will have a blast I am sure of it!
crud I forgot to do my Hot 100 update. I am on pace for all of my goals. No white bread eaten, I am closing in on 240 and will probably have to aim for 230 instead on my weight, I have eaten the garden bare on vegetables, my 5k time is the only sufferer. I may have to let that one go eventually but not yet! So there ya have it. Steve, sorry I am kinda late once again!
