Better week on the horizon
Sunday, May 17, 2020
Annnnnd, just like that it's Sunday again, the last day of my week, not the calendar beginning of the next. I still live in the traditional work-week mode.
This has been a strange mix of isolating, working to a sweat, hibernating and visiting.
I shopped well and spread some of that food to family well-distanced. I got what I needed for my garden while following the taped arrows and "stand here" markers provided by my local discount store.
Enjoyed some nice weather. Finally!
All but one of my green babies succumbed to the weather. They were indoors for too long. It was in the low 30's for several nights then I planted them the day the sun warmed us to 88! The poor plants could not take the changes.I saved seeds so planted new outside, and purchased fully formed replacements.
Throughout this past week I've finally gotten over myself and curbed my eating enthusiasm. The scale has stayed in an uncomfortable high range for two months and I'm hoping my nerves allow me to ditch those pounds I've been trying to loose. It dawned on me that part of my problem was lack of exercise and NOT cutting the calories. I do (did) work out quite a bit and was always on the move. Lock-down nerves and not cutting things from my diet...ok, I added some bad things... cause my weight to creep up 5 pounds.
Here's to hoping the gym opens soon or the weather warms up my pool so I can get exercise. My knee is terminally unhappy with my 1-2 mile walks that don't get my HR elevated. The weather forecast is not conducive to outdoor activities most of the week so I'll have to be content with repairing some ceiling issues and painting the darned thing!
