I know lat week was the official pre travel weigh in but i wanted to get one last weigh in before I travel so that i know what I started with. there won’t be any official stats as this is just a for my own information before i go post.
I will say that it is a high note to start the travel on. Last Friday, the last official weigh in I was 219.2 lbs. This week I am leaving at 218.6 lbs. Given the stress, the interruptions to any form of fitness or regularly scheduled, well anything for the last few weeks, this feels like a miracle quite honestly. Whether it is divine blessing or a bonus prize for all the stress I don’t care. i am going to take it and be happy with it for the moment. Once I finish my morning posts, I will begin my packing extravaganza.
It is a strange packing. I am not only packing for travel but packing to take care of my mom as she heals. I asked if there was anything she wanted and I have several old movies that she would like me to bring down, there are also a few stores she asked me to pick up some things from as I head down. So there will be the normal personal packing as well as the since you are coming down and the entertain someone post surgery packing list to get through.
To be honest it is actually a relief to be able to gather and pack. We will load the car first thing in the morning but after a few weeks of simply making lists and preparing to pack, actual packing feels like a relief as crazy as it will no doubt be. And so after the skin care line up, the packing will commence.
A schedule of necessity will take over for the next few weeks and then when i return I can actually once again attempt to get back into my own schedule. My hope is that by then the weather will have turned, the cooler weather clothing can emerge and the walks can become longer and a lot more fun.
But for now, we settle things, then we pack.
