Two-Thirds of the Way Now...Maybe..

I weighed in at 236 on Saturday (3/20/11) so I've lost 30 pounds. Lately I've really fallen off my exercise and have even returned to my late night cereal killer habit but I have decided to renew my efforts to meet my goal of being fat (221) by summer. With almost three months, it's very doable. In fact, it looks too easy. I guess I should establish a stretch goal to challenge myself...so I'll set my stretch goal at 206 by summer. That's another 30 pounds in about the same time frame. We'll see.

Lloyd and I are going to run a 5k in late April. I need to step up my cardio training so I don't suck the atmosphere off the planet and end life as we know it...it's a sacrifice but one I will make...just to save humanity. I will also run in a shirt...to save embarrassment...

I've been unemployed for three months and I'm totally cool with not working...I just miss being able to buy toys on a whim and having to actually budget. But the first of the year is always a crunch so I'm not worried at this point. I'll get through paying taxes and insurance by May and should be a little more flush. I still want to take a road trip with Gina to tackle one of our bucket list items.

I'm done for this month...

Y'all bunch o'lazy no goods!! Get some jobs!!!!!

But if you don't then have fun on those trips. I'm jealous. I'm jealous about the weight loss, too! WAY TO GO! I think you can reach the stretch goal by summer.

Steve, that "sucking the atmosphere off the planet" line was so funny, I may steal it for myself.
