Weekend Recap and Radomness

First of all, I will say - it's Monday, and I made it out of bed, showered, and put on clothes that match. Victory.

Next, I will warn you that things are going to be super random because, as I may have mentioned - it's Monday, and my brain is not fully functioning.

Weigh in. Ooops. I forgot to do a weigh-in the last couple of weeks. This week was 308.2, which is down 2.2 pounds. I've only lost 4.6 pounds in the last 6 weeks, which is not the best, but progress is progress, right? Being able to run this week (however briefly) has been a huge help. It seems I tend to overeat when I don't have another outlet for stress. Who knew? **Please note heavy sarcasm.

Clocks.  Having to turn the clocks back this weekend got me thinking about clocks. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the clock in the front office at work had stopped. When I commented on it, one of the guys (that sits about seven feet from this clock) said, "Hmm. I didn't notice. I always look at the clock on my computer or my phone." Whenever we go over to my brother and sister-in-law's house, I go NUTS because they don't have ANY clocks... AT ALL. Who lives like this? They just use their phones. Am I crazy? At any given point in our first floor (except the bathroom), you can see a clock. From a couple of points, you can see three. Am I crazy?

Running. I had an amazing run yesterday. I stuck with the one minute jog, one minute walk intervals for twenty minutes, and it felt awesome. I even bumped up the speed on the last two jog intervals because everything felt good. My lower back was a little tight afterward, but that faded after a couple of hours. Yay! That makes three treadmill workouts last week. This week, I'm going to add a five minute warm up and five minute cool down, for a total of 30 minutes. I'll do that three times during the week, and if all feels good, I'd like to do a fourth day on the weekend. It has been really hard to hold back, but I know I'll be sorry if I overdo.

Behold - running feet! ... with a basset hound photo bomb.
She wanted her picture taken, so I obliged. She's totally posing.

Solid Food. Little man has been doing awesome with his sweet potato mush. The ice cube servings seem to be perfect. I've been putting one of the cubes in a mini Tupperware container and keeping two of those in the fridge at a time. I ended up with eighteen servings out of one sweet potato. I think we'll have to try carrots this weekend and maybe apples the week after that.

S spent most of the weekend in these pajamas. Can you see the moose on the belly? So Cute!

 Dinner. I think the time change threw all of us off yesterday. Little man was grumpy all day and then he crashed about 4:45 while I was making dinner. I brought Cody some food and saw this:

Poor guy is just too cozy for his own good. We ended up eating in shifts. He's a good sport.
