The Weekends are just too short

Trying to set up the Wii for
additional exercise options
This weekend was over way too quickly, probably because we had friends over for dinner on Saturday, which means Sat morning/afternoon were spent cleaning the place and grocery shopping.  yesterday was just a recovery day in terms of sleeping in and not needing to accomplish anything.

Over the past two months, I've managed to shed a little weight.  Not as much as I'd like but definitely enough considering the weak effort I've made toward it.  I topped out at 215 around Christmas and now am at 207, still a ways to go IMHO.  It might be unrealistic to get down to my optimal 190 or even the 195 I was at the Low-Rent Consultant Company, but 200 is an achievable goal.

In my younger years 30s, when I was averaging 90 miles of running a month, I didn't worry about winter weight because it would disappear once the spring thaw began.  Now I have to work a little harder to remove it and since I've technically spent the last two years rehabbing a knee, it's been hard to obtain the mileage necessary to shed all the weight.

* I use the term rehab liberally, it's not like I'm at the gym listening to an 80s montage while working the leg press.  The first year post surgery was consumed with other endeavors like planning a wedding.  Since I wasn't training for a marathon, I wasn't following a training regime so  naturally my mileage drastically reduced itself.  What I learned from that was I wasn't disciplined enough to run large amounts of miles on my own especially if we didn't get up at the buttcrack of dawn on hot summer days.
