Enough of that. I was in St. Louis/Chicago week before last and I got some neat photos. Once I can figure out how to post multiple photos on here without it taking me hours to re-size them I'll put them on here. I might just post them on my Flickr account and post the link on here that way I don't have to mess with sizing. (Edit: I went ahead and uploaded the Chicago pictures to Flickr. You can see them here: Chicago Pictures) My friend Nathan (aka Snarf) took me on a scooter ride in St. Louis. I must purchase a scooter now. What a fun way to get around town!
I have been really having an itch to get back into painting/any art lately. Instead of going back to my old favorite-oil painting-I have decided to dabble in watercolors. I have only done ONE watercolor painting in my life and it was back in high school. I have all the stuff I just need to sit down and have the patience to actually do it. That's where I normally have the problem when it comes to this sort of thing. I can't sit there long enough to make any progress and waiting for it to dry is hell. Once I've done a few I'll take some photos and put them up here.
I have officially lost 45(ish)lbs. I'm not sure how much further I'm going to go. I don't really care about the pounds-I just want to get to a size that I like. I'm pretty darn close though. I have a 5K this Saturday that I'm pretty excited about and another one the following Saturday. I have been having issues lately running because it has been so stinkin' hot outside. I have found that that is EXACTLY what has kept me from making any progress in the last 2 months or so. On rainy days I run fine because it's cool out-but if it's hot I almost can't run a mile. I'm really going to try and make an effort to wake up and run BEFORE work instead of in the evenings because its a good 10 or so degrees cooler in the mornings. We'll see if that happens though. Alright. I think I'm done babbling for now. Comment please. It's what encourages me to keep blogging.
