I lost 600 pounds and lived to tell the tale!
We're in the midst of packing and moving hell. The movers come Thursday morning, and our exhaustion is now tinged with desperation, as we still have so much to do.
This is a photo of our third-floor loft space at the moment, which doubles as my home office and our den. Lovely, right?!
Losing poundage: We have donated, given away, and recycled lots of stuff. LOTS. At least 600 pounds worth.
A very short list, in no particular order: loveseat. sofa chair/ottoman. bookcase. small entertainment unit. table lamp. about 350 books. about 250 magazines. two film cameras and two tape recorders. electric blanket. shoes. clothes, including a tuxedo. flatware. baskets. brand-new picture frames. vases. two boomboxes. a decorative mirror. more clothes. kitchen stuff. office supplies and stationery.
Running: Running? What running? Well, I did manage to do 36 miles last week. I missed my long run yesterday with my group, and it looks like I won't be able to do it this week. But I did run a pretty hard interval workout last Friday night: 7 X 800's at 7:18/mile pace, with only a 2-minute recovery in-between. Felt tired but elated afterwards.
