Family, Blues, Streaking

I spent this past weekend in the cities. Friday night my sister had a bunch of our relatives who were in town over. We were able to meet my cousin's baby girl for the first time and she is oh so adorable and teeny. Saturday afternoon was spent in down town Mpls taking in a bit of the Famous Dave's BBQ and Blues Festival. It was free (the music), fun, and a great day to get in a bit of sun! If you like Blues, here's a few of my favorite groups from the day to check out .... Willie West, Big Jay McNeely, and The Brass Kings.

Saturday night was spent at my cousin's high school graduation open house. It was fun to see everyone.

After returning home from a fun-filled weekend in the cities today, I was exhausted and had no desire to do anything. Nada.

But, I had to.

I went out for a nice walk through the neighborhood and enjoyed the stroll by checking out some of the neighborhood houses for sale.

The streak lives on and here's what it looks like so far.....

Total days: 8 (6:36:06)
# of Swims: 2 (1:15:00)
# of Rides: 3 (2:57:00)
# of Runs: 3 (1:32:06)
# of ST: 1 (20:00)
# of Walks: 1 (32:00)

Despite all the crap I ate this past week (don't make me list it), I ate a lot of good stuff too and was able to lose a couple lb's. Goal for this week is to not add the weight on and try to drop a bit more!

Now, it's time to take in game 2. GO CELTICS!

Yesterday's ORN: 2.5 miles (run/walk), 32:00
Today's Walk: 2.1 miles

I hate how fast this number on the scale can jump if you treat yourself a bit to much.

Why to keep that from happening.

Molly said...

I walked around my hood this weekend too...not on purpose...running cramps again, not sure what is up.
Way to keep on streakin on!
Take Care

Keep up the strong work, sister!!

Holly said...

Way to go on the weight loss! Good luck on the week ahead!

Jess said...

Congrats on the weight loss! I didn't do perfect in the first week of the challenge either but still lost a little bit and that's all that matters right!

Nice job and keep it up!

Thanks for stopping by! As for my sock/shoe issue, I was wearing Balega socks (the "Lady Endura" model...before this world of running I didn't know there were so many kinds of socks!). I will try them with the other socks I got, can't remember their name...!
Great job on your workouts and Lb loss! I look forward to following your journey!

Sounds like a nice weekend. I hadn't heard about the blues fest. Not a big fan of blues but it's something to check out on occasion. I like checking out new things.

Marcy said...
