Son of a... Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a bran muffin?! Seriously. It's like I was asking for the Arc of the Covenant. The full story goes a bit like this:
So as you know if you read this, Bluenoser and I are keeping one another honest on the Lean Look program. We're both trying like hell to lose some weight, and both doing extremely well I must say. One of the breakfast choices is a bran muffin, this is where I admit I am one of those sick freaks that loves bran muffins. With all of that said I set out to find myself a bran muffin, without having to go on an hour drive to Trader Joe's or Whole Paycheck Market just to get a bran muffin. So I gave myself fifteen minutes to find this and still get to work when I wanted to at 8:00. I never hit the door until about 8:20. That's right folks, about thirty-five minutes trying to find a muffin. Thirty-five minutes, and that was just Monday! Did about twenty more on Wednesday, and still no muffin. I actually went so far as to try the following:
Panera, Arabica Coffee House, Seekers Coffee House, Dunkin' Donuts, three grocers, Starbucks, and Great Harvest Bread Company. That's right, out of ten places I couldn't find one freakin' bran muffin. I did, however, find a tiny local bakery... Not local to me, however. Could this ever end!? The answer is yes. One of the girls that I work with, our administrative Goddess (The office would likely collapse without her there, and she keeps me grounded often when I get in those moods. You know the mood where you feel as though you want to draw blood from someone?), lives near said bakery. They don't actually HAVE bran muffins, but the baker makes an awesome bran muffin and was willing to make a batch for me on an order basis. So, the bottom line is Wednesday I was able to order four bran muffins from them, yesterday they got the stuff in to make them, and this morning it's bran muffin time! Wow! I can't wait to get in and grab one of those babies! As Elaine would say, "Top of the muffin to ya!"
OK, as far as the Lean Look update. Had to swap the Wednesday ride due to severe thunderstorms. Did the core workout Wednesday and rode Thursday. Thursday was a cold one, and the arthritis in the knees felt it. I couldn't get my legs to work right. They were great while it was warm, but the intervals killed me. Can't wait for it to get back out of the sixties and back into the eighties, I guess I got used to riding in the heat. While I don't know exact measurements, as I am staying strict to just measuring on Monday mornings. I don't want to become crazy obsessed over this. But, I do measure every morning, same time, same way. Today's weigh was 190.8. Incase you're Bluenoser, or if you just care, that's weight loss on ten of eleven days of the weight loss challenge. The only day I was up was one pound on Saturday. Well, that's that for now. Have a great weekend, I'm off to try to make some money, cut out early and ride. Here's hoping you have good riding this weekend.
