Had a 4 mile run this morning before breakfast. Supposed to get a noreaster through here later today, so it was good to get a run in before it turns nasty.
That is truly, truly awesome, Eddie. Way to go.

Ok, so it was a great checkup for me. The doc actually took a double-take when he came into the room and asked, "So how much weight have you lost?"

He loved my blood work and my BP is right on the money. He's thrilled with my weight and body composition and my current health status. He took me off all of my prescription medications. The only thing I'm taking now is an aspirin and a Zyrtec. No more statin drugs or BP drugs. He ordered blood work and full physical for 3 months away to see how I'm making out.

Definitely on the list of things to be thankful for ....

End of round 2 of A90 for me, no huge losses. I wasn't nearly as "on" with the nutrition aspect as I find it hard to get in all my meals in a day now plus the last month has been shaky with new meds making me pretty dizzy and nauseous and pretty much eliminating my appetite. Ugh. So when I ate it was easy tummy stuff and protein wouldn't settle well. I only lost about 2 inches but i'm down almost 20 more pounds bringing me up to 50lbs lost since the start of April. I feel good still and my fitness is still improving. I'm lifting heavier and not as tired after workouts, so while the inches lost are minimal, i'm not disappointed.

Race day. On my way to Landisville. Sparks is running in the same event, too, so we'll have a little "Chaz meetup"
