Walking to Weigh in

Last week everything felt so crazy.  I started to write my post and kept getting distracted.  Even had to play IT manager again with our main computer at work.

What didn't get posted last week....
We had so much rain last week.  I STILL haven't been able to do anything with my garden.  It's just a bunch of weeds!  Is there a way to get rid of the weeds that won't damage the seeds when I plant them?

I took my first walk around the neighborhood on Sunday.  I was nearly chased by a goose protecting its family.  I had to walk fast and sideways so I could keep an eye on it while I went past.  Here are my stats from that walk.  (I'm using the MapMyWalk app to track what I'm walking.)

We're doing a 7 mile walk/run challenge this week and next.  Since I only walked Sunday I'm way behind LOL.  Monday I didn't feel like walking.  Tuesday I had car trouble so I couldn't go to Weight Watchers to weigh in.  Yesterday I weighed in down 1 lb!  It was such a stormy afternoon and evening there was no chance that I could get out to walk.  I need to remember to bring some kind of bottle to work for my water so that I can walk during my lunch hour.

Has anything interesting happened to you on a walk or run?

I weighed in last night down only .2 lbs.  That came as a surprise for me as I felt heavier and expected a gain because of TOM.  But that feeling could've just as easily been bloat because of the heat and humidity.

I'm on a Jillian Michaels kick right now.  All but two DVDs from the library are her workouts.  Jillian isn't as tough with these workouts as I expected.  Sure, I can't do all the moves and have to modify the modifier sometimes but I still push through.

Benny didn't want to tell us what we were doing Monday; he kept saying it was a surprise.  Austin guessed it correctly shortly before we left.

We did the whole 18 holes (9 just isn't enough) but a lot of the time was just standing around waiting for the people in front of us to get out of the way.  The group kept discussing their play or something and wouldn't move on to the next hole.  It was very frustrating with them doing that.  I stayed on my feet the whole time but Benny and Austin would occasionally sit and wait.  Every time we play I win; I know it's not them just letting me win since we all stink at it LOL

I walked through the neighborhood east of work during lunch yesterday.  It was a little too windy.  Silly me didn't think it all through and didn't even have pockets.  So I had to manage my wallet, phone, and water bottle while holding my skirt.  It must've been a funny sight to those walking and driving by.  If we don't have popup shower today I'll take a walk to the west.  Eventually I want to walk over to the City Market and shop the Farmer's Market on a Wednesday.
