True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn

That's my excuse for not posting anything substantive recently. I was nourishing and refreshing my spirit....NOT. I just haven't had anything to say. Weight loss is going alright. I survived the advent of the Girl Scout cookies. I can't really complain since I've lost 10 lbs. On the other hand, it could be going better. I could have lost more weight over the past 14 weeks. My average weekly loss is 0.6lbs. I wish it were closer to 1.5 lbs. per week. So that's my goal for the next 14 weeks before the wedding - 1.5 lbs. per week for a total of 21 lbs. That would mean a total of 31 lbs. lost by July 31 or 75% of my original goal of 40 lbs. lost. It's good to have goals.

However, one goal that I've had to shelf is conquering the half marathon. I have completely stopped training for the Capital City Half, which is in 2 weeks. I'm still having issues with my foot. It hurts when I get up in the morning; it hurts after I run; it hurts after I stand on it too long; it hurts after I wear heels. Stupid foot. I hate it. I guess it's time to find a new form of cardio exercise. I keep thinking about swimming, but I keep finding excuses for not going. I imagine my weight loss would be going better if I were doing some cardio in addition to weights.

On a completely different topic, I rented office space last month. I'm officially a real lawyer with a real office with real office furniture. Yay! It's exciting and terrifying all at the same time. Hopefully, I can continue to pay for the office and my bills. Fingers crossed.
