weird or not, the pounds stayed off...

I guess it wasn't a fluke. The 6 pounds stayed off yesterday. Who knows.

I was actually up 2/10ths of a pound from yesterday, but who's complaining, right???

Now I just have to maintain this gigantic loss through the week so it shows at WI next Sat morning.

I went to the grocery store last night and bought some more of those yummy frozen pancakes. They had blueberry (in addition to the berry flax one's I've already tried) and a new one—sweet potato flavored. I can't wait to try that one. I think I'll have them this morning. It says they're "spelt" pancakes. Wikipedia says it has: 57.9% carbohydrates (excluding 9.2% fiber), 17.0% protein and 3.0% fat, as well as dietary minerals and vitamins. Sounds good to me. I love learning about new kinds of foods. When I had that bake sale last year, one guy from work made cookies using spelt flour. I had no idea what it was except that it was supposed to be healthy for you.

Anyway, the pancakes definitely sound interesting.

I didn't go walking or running yesterday morning, like I had wanted to, but I did go walking this morning. Boy did I NOT want to go! I put it off as long as I possibly could. My intentions were to just walk for 20 minutes then back home. I ended up running for 4 whole minutes straight—without a break!!! At first, I walked for about 7 minutes and then just decided to run for as long as my feet would take me and it ended up being a non-stop 4-minute run. I couldn't believe it. I probably could have gone further, I felt winded but fine, but I was afraid of my heart rate. I didn't strap on the heart monitor this morning and I was afraid my heart was upwards of 180 bpm, which isn't good for me just jogging. I still need to work on getting my heart rate under control.

Anyway, it's started off being a great day.

Ok, now your walking, and running, now to remember to use the heart rate monitor. That's what you have it for, you know.

Those pancakes sound yummy. Going to look for them today but I'd be willing to bet you about a million bucks that my grocery store doesn't carry them. Wanna take the bet?
