Okay, let's take care of some business first! There are a few of us on this journey right now to hit a short-term goal by Labor Day, 9/6/10! Here's the list of people who have chimed in:
Dan (my local friend)
It is definitely more fun when we are all on this journey. Any ideas as to how we want to check in? My weekly weigh-ins are on Saturday. Does that work for everyone else to drop in with a comment that states your progress toward your goal? Anyone else want in?
As for me, I am loving this. I got to 287 on Saturday, which is lower than I have been since I started The Clydesdale Project and the lowest I have been in about 8-9 years. Your encouragement has helped me get to this milestone and I am going to just keep going into new record-breaking territory now.
I celebrated Saturday with low calories during the day, an intense 9-mile bike ride, and then a decent amount of Indian food, which is a rare treat for me. I know that I went over calories on that meal, but that is why I kept it light during the day and kept it light on Sunday too.
Now, for some fun! I stumbled upon the artwork of Karen Eland. Her work is amazing in its detail and tone, but also for one other small reason: she uses espresso as paint. Let me explain that better: She doesn't use paint...she only uses brewed coffee as her "color" and likely mixes in water or cream, etc. to get different shades. As you might suspect, my favorite piece of hers is one that combines coffee, cycling and a vintage look. Behold.
