Okay, okay, I'm back already!

Sorry about being gone, but hey... I actually got THAT busy. The short of it: lots and lots and lots of school work, rehearsals, got sick for a second, and lost more weight. So there you go.

Ah, the weight... I'm about nine pounds awy from my goal!!! That's right, people... I'm smaller now than I've been at any point in my adult life... that is, if I'm an adult yet. Nine pounds. The plan is to lose those last nine pounds by the time we go back to Dallas. I think it's doable, but I'm not worried about it if I don't get there. I mean, I'm in the freaking 130s now, even if it's 139, so I'm not complaining. Besides, I'll get to 130 before too long, and I don't mind cutting myself a break over the holidays. I've learned how to maintain my weight and choose the right foods to eat, when to eat, how often to eat, and so on. This diet has been, for lack of a better way to put it, one of the best things that's ever happened to me. John's even using the stuff, although not in the same way... more in the way that I'll be using it in a couple of months, for maintenence and supplement to regualr food. But yeah... I've lost 61 poinds in 5 months. I am trully cool.

On that note, I need new clothes. I have a couple of coats now, which is good, beause it's getting pretty cold now. I'm also running a lot now, and will be running my third race tomorow, a 5-mile Turkey Trott as Prospect Park on Thanksgiving morning. Before that, I ran the Poland Spring 5-mile Marathon Kickoff, and last Sunday I ran the Race to Deliver, a 4-miler... both of those were at Central Park, so it was familiar territory. In a couple of weeks, I have another race, but I don't remember what it is at the moment. Point is, I run more now. Hopefully, when I get back on a regular diet, I'm going to start marathon training, especially since I automatically qualify for the NYC Marathon if I run enough qualifying races during the year (I've already run two, so I'm on my way)... Who'd have thunk it, right?

I'm off, then... John and I have some errands today, before Thanksgiving at Aunt jenny's tomorrow. Just wanted to pop in and give an update, and promise that I won't stay away that long from the blog again... I mean it!
