Weigh In (11/21)

Saturday's weigh in went great!

I'm down another 2.8 pounds, and I feel like I am firmly in the 230's--I also got another 5lb star, which is always fun :-)

Saturday's meeting was all about how to handle Thanksgiving, and owning your decision whether you intend to maintain, gain a pound or two, or continue losing through the holiday. Last year, I planned on maintaining my weight over the holiday, but I wound up actually losing a little! I fully intend to follow the same strategies I used last year, and I'll share those with you tomorrow (I'm seriously excited about that post!).

Saturday was a pretty slow day after the meeting... we did a whole lot of lounging around, thanks to the rainy weather.

On Sunday, I got up and went for a run. I'm planning on doing the Crescent City Classic 10k in March, which is 6.2 miles--so I figured I need to start increasing my mileage. Today I went 3.25 miles!

Anna over at Losing My Puppy is always sharing photos from her walks, so I decided to follow her lead and share some photos from my run (technically, I took these last week but I did the same route today). Today (and last weekend) I ran along the Lafitte Greenway, a 2.6 mile pedestrian path that links several neighborhoods from Mid-City (where I live) almost to the French Quarter. We are fortunate to live half a block from it, so it's easy for us to enjoy a walk without have to dodge the crazy drivers :)

Have you heard of the Little Free Library? You purchase the little house and
put it in your yard and fill it with books, and people can borrow or keep books, or add books to it.
I was excited to see one on my walk!
My shadow, and a long, straight portion of the Greenway.
Lindy Boggs Medical Center, which was abandoned after Katrina. Several projects had been planned for it and fell
through, and as of May 2015, there was some dispute in litigation over it. It's super creepy, and is a huge
eyesore in an otherwise well-developed, booming part of the city. 
Some interesting graffiti; that creepy goblin hand showed up in several pieces of graffiti along this route.
After my run, we decided to walk to Parkway Bakery for lunch--we got a fried shrimp po'boy, fried pickles, and alligator sausage & turkey gumbo. YUM.

Karinne's great-aunt made the backpack for her, specifically to hold coloring
books/paper, and crayons/colored pencils. 
Ryan really didn't want his picture taken... I'm pretty sure he's mid-"no" here.
What did you do over the weekend?
