Heat Wave

Okay, it's not exactly a heat wave but weather forecasters predict it's going to get up to 70 degrees today.  In late January.   In the midwest.   I love it.  It was beautiful yesterday too and we took the family for about a 3 mile walk last night.   I also love that it's starting to stay lighter longer.  Woo-hoo.

I ran on  a treadmill in Arkansas twice in addition to running outside a couple of times this week.  Haven't run more than 3 miles at a time yet.   I really want to ease back into it.   I also have lost about 11 pounds in 3 weeks with the Biggest Winner weight loss challenge through work.  Feeling pretty good about that, but I have much more to lose.

Did anyone watch the Biggest Loser this week?   First, I didn't get why Gillian felt the need to make Dan/Don (whatever his name is) use curse words.  It was like that was her whole mission, to get him mad enough to swear , and when he did it, she felt better.  Like she accomplished something.  I think she tries to psychoanalyze things too much.    Second, did anyone else think it was extremely unfair when the two green team members were pitted against all the rest of the ranch competitors in the challenge?   It was like 2 against 8 or something.   Not fair at all, even though they almost won.

Enough rambling.   Everyone have a great start to the weekend.

I'm in southwest Kansas, and it was gorgeous here yesterday. Got in a walk with my kids and short run. Planning on a long run this afternoon before it colds again.

Great job on the weight loss! I think Jillian does it for the TV drama aspect, but it doesn't make it right!

I thought that was a great twist pitting the Green team against the others. If they had won, the alliance between them and everyone else would have been an advantage. Supposedly the weight for the 8 made it equal to raise the numbers.
