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.

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.

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:
