Yesterday around 9 am someone one driving a backhoe took out two bundles of fiber optics in my area. So we have been without internet since then. In addition atms and credit card readers haven’t been functioning either. I am just glad that I did not need to get gas today as things have been a little unsettled. Still we move on…
This week was all about traffic and heat management. The heat reached brutal temperatures this week. Anything growing is now crispy and brown. I water my plants just as the sun is going down to give them a fighting chance of absorbing some water before the sun broils it away. Even then my garden plants has polka dotted leaves because the dew condenses on them and then before it has a chance to be absorbed the sun comes up and uses the droplets as magnifiers to burn the leaves below.
It’s like plant torture.
Nature. She is brutal.
So even if I were still walking outside, this week was definitely a no go for the walking trail. I don’t know if my skin is considered more delicate than the plat leaves in my garden, but I do know I have the ability to take me and the sweat droplets the sun could possibly magnify on my skin inside.
So I do.
And I think I have found a way around the massive construction projects in my area so the drive is not sucking up massive amounts of time.
If only Spectrum could get itself in gear and not cut my internet connection for long stretches of time, things would be going pretty well. Despite it being the time of month where bloated and crampy are my bywords, I managed to get my workouts in and am chipping off a little bit more of the weight I am carrying. Slowly I am edging into the land of the healthy weight. It is a long journey, but my feet are still on the path so that is a very good thing. Admittedly, losing another pound feels pretty good too.
Starting weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 219.6 lbs
This Week’s Weight: 218.4 lbs
Lost this week: 1.2 lbs
Lost thus far: 27.6 lbs
And so that is it for my weekly check in for my weight loss journey. I don’t know how useful this is to those reading this post, but for me posting this and requiring myself to sit down and think about what I did during the week, how I feel about it and seeing the effects as the weight ships off slowly really helps me out. It keeps me on track more than you will ever know and I really appreciate you being a part of that. So thanks and have a great Friday.
