So I haven't been to the gym since August 10th because my back hurt.
Tonight I ran 8.25km in 60 minutes on the elliptical doing my favorite interval program of 10 incline 8 resistance then 4 incline 1 resistance.  It felt good to be back.  I didn't do any weights because I didn't want to press my luck with my back.

And then I came home and weighed myself (this is how I cheated).
Despite everything I'm -2.2lbs at 192.4.
I can see 190 from here.
WTF?!

  7. Andrea -- I hope it's my body thanking me. Hopefully I've earned a few points by giving it a vacation. I hope to cash those points in at the gym.

    Jessica -- thank you for the award! You're a peach!

    Emily -- walking across the queensboro bridge a few times.... finding some happiness.... losing some happiness... leaning on friends the right way.... all these things add up. I think I'm gonna dedicate those -2.2 to Claire [Clare?].

    Mark -- I think sometimes things need to be broken a little. I mean, think about a good pair of jeans or sneakers. They don't fit right until they're broken in. Maybe a routine needs to be broken in order for it to work again properly.
