  2. A week on the ranch (January 26 - February 1)

    by , 02-02-2009 at 12:37 AM
    And just like that, the first month of the year is gone. So fast, and now it will never ever be January 2009 again.

    This week marked the arrival of Polly, the angora rabbit. She is the first of hopefully four or five rabbits I hope to ultimately keep for their wool. She showed up yesterday (well, actually I drove five hours round-trip to get her), and we spent today getting acquainted. She is a beautiful English angora, ruby-eyed white (REW) with a sweet personality, but just enough ...

    Starting out the week strong, I did both my free weights and 47 minutes on the treadmill. Drank 10 glasses of water, because I had already had my 8 when I got on the treadmill and thought I should replenish some of that water I sweated out!

    Breakfast was a banana and two hard-boiled eggs. Lunch was a pita bread with hummus. I got hungry a few hours later, and ended up having a second pita with hummus, mostly because it was the last pita, and that always seems to be my weakness ...

    Giving myself today off, so I'm just taking a second to record progress thus far (since today was a weigh-in day).

    Weight loss this month: 5.8 pounds

    Last month, my measurements were:

    39 (bust)
    34 (waist)
    41 (hips)
    24.5 (thigh)

    This month, my measurements are:

    37 (bust) (-2")
    30 (waist)(-4")
    39 (hips)(-2")
    21.5 (thigh)(-3")

    So I'm doing SOMETHING ...

    Pretty good day today. Breakfast was an applesauce mini-loaf, an apple, a hard-boiled egg, and 2 cups of coffee. Lunch was a pita bread with hummus that I made myself! (Very tasty!!) After that, I went out for a short walk, only about 2 miles, then did some free weights for my arms. Dinner was a big salad. I was VERY tempted to not eat dinner, because I am worried about not losing any weight for my weigh-in tomorrow, but I decided that would be cheating, in a way, as my whole goal is to find ...
