I'm in love. . . .

216.5 (whatever)
I'm in love with my new computer monitor! Because I figure I'll be doing a lot of work at home, I wanted to get a nice, large monitor with my new desktop. Well, the one I got rocks. It's a 22-inch, widescreen, flatscreen monitor, with incredible clarity. I am very happy!
It's amazing all the things this new computer can do, all for under $1000. I have more memory than I will likely ever use. Cool.
I was up 1.7 lbs this week from last week's weigh-in. I'm not 100% sure why. I did overeat some this past week, and actually last night, KC and I went out to dinner and I really overdid it. Come to think of it, last night's gorge is probably the primary reason the scale was up tonight. Hmmm.
Onward into a new week. I know I will be eating--probably poorly--at the D-Backs game tomorrow night, and my friend V and I are having dinner at The Melting Pot on Saturday. Aside from those two calorie-fests, I should be able to have a pretty good week this coming week. I'm actually finding that I prefer bringing my lunch to work; it saves me time, and I'm not friendly enough with any of my coworkers to lunch with them, so I end up eating at my desk in any event. Might as well eat my Jenny food and save time that can be better spent billing clients. :)
I'm going to continue with my treadmill time, too. I would really like to be back to being able to run a 5K distance by the time it starts to cool off in mid-to-late October; not only would I like to start jogging on the roads again, I'm also hoping to do some hiking in the fall. There are several mountain peaks in the Phoenix area that I have not summit-ed. Gorgeous views, and I always love to hike. I have a few friends who I know will be willing to go with me, too.
So glad tomorrow is Friday!
