  3.5 Miles

T walked with us this evening, and I carried W while pushing M a full 3.5 miles today. It was cool, and I wore long pants and long-sleeved T, but in retrospect should've worn shorts and a short-sleeved T. But it wasn't so bad, I was just slightly too warm in my outfit.

It's been over a week now since I started carrying W, and when I stepped on the scale for my weekly Sunday morning weight check, I had GAINED a pound. This was not encouraging.

Nevertheless, T said that he can already see subtle changes in my figure for the better, and that weight loss should be incidental to fitness. I tend to disagree, but there doesn't seem to be much I can do about it, so I'll have to take increased fitness as a consolation prize.

I should meet my goal of completing a 4-mile walk carrying W tomorrow morning. I'll try to set up an outing with my friend who has the 5-mi loop through her neighborhood, I may give that a go later in the week. Hopefully I'll weigh less next week.
