So I've been working out for four days in a row now. It's so nice outside... it makes all the difference.

My friend Patty is getting married at the end of May, so I'm using that as goal date. I'm not in the wedding or anything, but I told myself that I can buy a new dress if I lose at least 15 pounds.

Today's motivation: A painting by Lucian Freud

(Btw, the name of it is "Benefits Supervisor Sleeping" and it sold at auction for $33.6 million in May 2008—the highest price paid for a work of art by a living artist.)
