The bottom (12/12) is when I reached goal, and I've not once gone over my goal weight in two months. That's pretty damn good!
For the past 36 hours or so, I've been drinking tons of new tea, thanks to Ellen. She and I talk about tea quite a bit, and we have the same taste preferences for the most part (we like black dessert teas). She wrote a post about David's Tea, and how great it was--after reading that, I just had to try it out.
I certainly didn't need any tea at the moment (I have a lifetime's worth in my cupboard right now), but after reading how great it was, I went on the website and bought
Jerry and I had a cup of the Toasted Marshmallow last night, and I think that was my favorite so far. Today, I had Ceylon Star and Buttered Rum. I've really enjoyed all of them. The Movie Night one looks very interesting, and I'll probably try that tonight.
Anyway, if you're a tea person, you've got to check out this site. I want to try them ALL.
Today was technically a rest day, but since I didn't run yesterday, and the weather was good today, I decided to run four miles this morning (instead of doing it tomorrow). First, I sat around for a little bit because the cats were being lap-hogs:
My legs felt really tired today, and I was struggling to keep what has become a "normal" pace for my shorter runs (8:30/mi). I ran out two miles and then turned around, and the way back was a little better (tail wind versus the head wind I had going out). I still finished in good time, but it was a tough run today.
