Yay Me!

Sunday night we ended up walking to the fireworks, about a kilometer each way. The whole family came so I couldn't ride my sons' bike. I walked a brisk pace as the kids rode their bikes, my hubby thought I was walking too fast which is a change because it's usually me telling him to slow down!

Today I made blueberry muffins, that I thought would be good for my breakfast at work this week. I don't think they're going to last long enough! I will at least get one tomorrow but the family has been gobbling them up. The rest of the day I did laundry and read. I did 30 minutes on the Gazelle and found that my eReader sits nicely on the display, so I read some more. After that I still wanted more. I am in disbelief myself! So I went on a short, ten minute (1.8km) bike ride as well!

I honestly can't believe how well I'm doing. Three weeks ago when I started this there was no way I would have believed if anyone told me I'd be going strong after three weeks. Now, here I am! Oh, by the way, I totally forgot to weigh in this morning so I'm going with yesterday's weigh in of 215.4 so I'm officially down 9.6 pounds! Yay me!
