Brand New Month

But off to a kinda mediocre start. I'm not sure if I was late getting to the Y or just pokey today, but I didn't get any bike time at all. 35 minutes on the elliptical, including 4 minutes in reverse, and the weight-training circuit and I needed to head for work. I'll make up for it tomorrow.

And, since it was the first of the month, I got on the scale. I keep telling myself that I'm building muscle—and I know I'm losing girth—but I'm down only about 3 pounds since the last time I weighed, a month or so ago, IIRC.

I'm now within 36 miles of Rivendell. It's October 19, the 26th day since leaving Bag End, and the 13th since Weathertop. I've passed the Stone Trolls and Frodo is now on Glorfindel's horse.

Congratulations to BunnyRunner Melissa on her day at the gym today, and to Girly-Girl Terri on running in the rain!

Wow, Darla! You're going to be in Rivendell any day now! Any ideas where you're off to next?

Thanks on the kudos for getting to the gym. I went again yesterday and plan to go again tonight after work. Since my hours shifted and I'm back on 9:30-6:30, I've found it very natural to get back into my old routine of hitting the gym each night after work. :)
