I have either lost .5lbs, 1lbs, 1.5lbs, or 2lbs. Hmm. Obviously we all know which I'd like to believe. Unfortunately, I just can't quite convince myself to believe anything that liar says to me anymore. *sniffle*
So, later today I'll be off to find a new scale. Admittedly, ours is pretty old, but I wish I'd thought of this before I started this current weight loss quest. But! It does appear that I've lost SOME weight, because even having my period and eating ice cream the other night, my "skinny" pants still fit just fine, whereas normally this time of the month I'd be in my "fat" jeans. (When I lost weight before, I kept a pair of my older sized jeans as a back up for those days when I'm feeling bloated and crappy. Anyone else do that?)
Anyway. So that's my mission for today. Well, after we take the kids to the aquarium, and after we take the kids to the pool. Silly kids, getting in the way of my mission.
In other news......
I am a pasty white girl. Has been true since the day I was born, with bright orange hair. I freckle, then burn, in the sun. I've gotten really good at slathering myself with sunscreen (and, I'll admit, just hiding indoors), but since I've started running, I'm getting more sun than I ever have before, and I've developed a problem.
I have a sunburn down the part in my hair. Ow. I wear a visor when I run, which keeps the sun off my face, but I never really thought about my hair/scalp. I don't want to wear a hat because I get really overheated when I run, anyway, but obviously I don't want to keep getting an ouchy scalp. Has this happened to anyone else? I feel like such a dork.
