What a difference a week makes!

Weight: 307.8
Total Weight loss: 42.2

Well! I am back down to where I was one week ago (plus two ounces, but whatever). Just what I thought would happen. It feels good!

This morning I went on my first run in nearly two weeks. I missed it! I also got to try out my new pair of beautiful sneakers, the New Balance 768 Stability. It seems to get mixed reviews online, but when I was getting fitted at the running store, they were the shoes that were the most comfortable to me (I tried on three pairs total, these were the last ones I tried), and the run went just fine. Granted, I was a little slower and didn't go as far as where I had been before my break, but I did manage just over a mile and a half in just over 30 minutes, which was fine by me. I'm sure I will be back up to where I left off in no time.

Overall I am feeling much better. My cold pretty much disappeared Friday evening, and Saturday was spent running errands and cleaning out the basement space I'm going to use as my art studio -- it was quite a job! Yesterday was more of the same, plus transplanting our tomatoes and other plants into larger containers, also a heart-rate increasing activity (yes, really! They were BIG containers that I wrangled all by myself!), plus miscellaneous garden and lawn stuff, as usual.

So today I feel all fresh and renewed in my efforts, and totally back to normal, which is sometimes a really nice thing. Here's to Mondays!

Cute kicks! I like that color. All the shoes that are the best fit on my feet are hideous colors.

Glad you're feeling better!

I love New Balance. Won't wear any other kind of sneaker
