For the past two days, my morning weigh-in has indicated a total loss of 27 pounds. I'm going to claim 26.

I'm so proud of us (Pres Man and I, not the Royal Us) for doing this. Like I said earlier, I am happier overall and I love feeling that little bit stronger and fitter.

But not so much stronger and fitter as to want to go out in extreme heat. We did not hit the zoo for a walk today because it was too friggin' hot.

I have decided that if I don't find a good stretching or yoga video on Netflix tonight, I will just hop on the elliptical. I doubt it would hurt me much to not have any cardio today, but I think I will do some anyhow. It feels kinda good.

So far today I am doing awesome with my calories. I listened to my body and only ate half my sandwich at lunch. Now I have some for later.

I'm still so jazzed about those jeans yesterday. I need to go jeans shopping for real sometime.

I did some yoga tonight! I found one on Netflix that I think I may be able to live with, at least for now. I had some trouble because my thighs are still large enough to keep me from being able to get into some positions. For instance, I cannot bend one leg underneath of me, cross the other leg over that leg to my other side, and have the second foot flat on the floor.

Maybe my legs are just too short. Yeah, that's it.

But I did it, and that was satisfying.

I updated my weight and goals in my calorie counting app and I can have 10 fewer calories a day. :P

Tomorrow night we start weights again! Arms, probably biceps. I'm trying to talk myself out of going after some new dumbbells tomorrow night before we work out. Kind of wish I'd bought the ones at the thrift store; they were just like mine but twice as heavy. But I resisted so that I could get the kind with adjustable weight. I don't need a jillion pairs of dumbbells floating around.

Time to soak in some epsom salts and go to bed.
