5.5 Down and Well, Here We Go... since October 8, I've swam 5.5 miles! My original goal was to swim 10 by the end of the year and as you can, I think I'm definately going to reach that goal. So I've decided to bump it up and set my goal to 25 miles before December 31. So far I'm still on track and swimming today is just a bonus day (which means any laps I swim today, I wasn't planning on).

As far as the push-ups go, since I've started (October 10), I've done over 470+ push-ups!?! Let me tell ya ladies, my arms are sore. I just walk around the office doing arm circles...its kind of funny. The best push-up story so far is the other night, I had brought Matt home dinner from Cracker Barrell (yum!) and I was in the living room floor. I looked at him and said, "Count 'em!" and started doing my push-ups. As I finish, I look up at him and he's licking the plate. I'm panting out of breathe and look at him, "So I guess you didn't count..."

So it seems as though I have the exercise thing down but I still haven't lost any weight. I can't really say that I'm surprised because I have to be honest with myself and I haven't had any restraint eating all the Halloween candy around the office or the Khaldi's cookies one of the moms brought in the other day...all I can say about the cookies is...HEAVEN! So maybe after this weekend, I'll get on the food wagon and then watch the pounds just shed away.

Sidenote: I put Matt's truck on Craigslist and so far we've had 2 phone calls and 2 emails in less than 24 hours. The most interesting phone call went something like this:

Matt: Hello?
Caller: Hi, I was calling about the truck on Craigslist.
Matt: Okay, what questions do you have?
Caller: Would you want to trade it for a motorcycle?
Caller: Okay, bye.

How weird!?! Happy Halloween! I actually remembered to wear my Halloween shirt I bought three years ago and have only worn once! It's going to be another busy, busy weekend!!!

I hear ya on the weight thing. I can't stop eating. I'm afraid after I have this baby I'll have a ton of weight to lose and never lose it. meh.
I love craig's list, but it can be annoying. As in your caller lol.
