I downloaded the ap for my Iphone, having read about it on Melissa’s blog This thing is way cool. You listen to your own music and it cues you when to walk and when to run. The only problem is your playlist has to be set up first. I used one of my kids'. It went great until Piano Man came on and I had to finish the last two minutes in silence. Something happened around the time of my first child. I can't do spinny rides any more and I can't listen to Billie Joel. Inexplicable.
Saturday I lured the family out for an hour and a half on the trail-- a pleasant way to get back in the saddle. Sunday I veg'd inexusably. (I am deep in my NaNoWriMo, even though today is technically the last day and I am 13,000 words and about 40% of the plot short. I'm going to drive on, though.) Having done day 1 of C25K I am feeling pleasantly virtuous. My husband has just strongly endorsed my working on my book, despite the fact it is not going to add any money or productivity to the family store, which means I have one more for my thankful list under heading of "Husband." He bought cold cuts for dinner and is volunteering to go to my daughter's basketball pictures, so I am loaded for bear. I think I can knock off another 5,000 words tonight.
I am so deep in my book (not to mention my real job) that I have not been commenting on my beloved blogs. Please know that I am reading and enjoying them. Still there under the page hits and keeping track of how you're doing. I think I have about 1/2 a pound from Thanksgiving which is not too daunting. My ultimate goal is to get down to the 150s but if I make 171 by New Year's (1.5 pounds!) I will be very happy.
