The wages of hard work....

is a FIVE-pound loss. OOH RAH!!!!!! I am definitely sticking with the exercise bike for at least 2-3 times per week. I found that I enjoyed the workout, I know I got something out of it and it's something I can do in any weather. Did I sweat? Drenched within the first 5 minutes, most days. Did it feel good? Yeah. Really, it did. I absolutely hated getting sweaty as a child. I just didn't like the sensation. I don't know what it was, but it made me feel icky and yucky and ewwwwy. Now, I could care less. Bring it on.

I will be out of town this weekend -- I figure I will end up mostly walking for exercise. I might see if my cousin or his wife will join me. I'm scared to ask him -- he's a career Navy guy and he may flat wipe the road up with me!!! I haven't seen my cousin in about 5 years, so I am thrilled to be visiting them. I'm also looking forward to the fresh fish from the lake.... Mmmm, broiled or grilled fish with a little lemon pepper..... SLURP! Hopefully, there's a grocery store near them where I can pick up some veggies and fruits, or at least salad mix.

I'm looking forward to a relaxing Fourth, making good choices all the way around (food, fun, activity, festivities), and I hope yours is just as good.

*** Oh, before I forget: quick update on the medical stuff. The FSH test came back just fine. So this morning, they drew more bloodwork (sigh) for a TSH/T4 (thyroid) test. Interesting choice for a test, but I'm not the doctor. We'll see what it says. I laughed when they told me because I had just scheduled my dog for a thyroid checkup himself the next day (he has hypothyroidism). His test came back fine, and I hope mine does too.
