First weekly weigh-in after Norway

Weight: 123.6
BF %: 18.9%

Admittedly I thought that my weight would be lower and I would be freaked out by how much I accidentally lost while I was away. However, 123.6 is acceptable and I'm content to remain there. The accuracy of my Omron Body Fat Monitor is questionable, but I take the readings under the same circumstances each week so even if 18.9% isn't dead on, it indicates that I did lose some fat while I was in Norway.  

I just got my car back last night, eeee! I'm so happy I drive about and do the things I've wanted to since I got back.  Purchasing some new running shoes is at the top of my list, since I've got some serious mileage on my current pair and I can tell they're getting a little beat up.

My run today was miserable, I was only able to eke out 4 miles at an 11 min/mi pace, which is slow for me. That's what this disgusting hot and humid weather will do to you when you're not ready for it though.  Norway was much cooler than Massachusetts and my body just isn't used to it yet. I'm sure in a couple of weeks I'll be alright, but expect some more complaints about how hot this weather is. :)
