Oh yes my darlings the scale is once again moving. I know it didn’t move as much as I liked but it did move. And that itself is always a relief. This week was interesting as far as exercise went. there was much rain so there wasn’t a lot of out door activity. However, I managed to make it to my morning workout every day this week.
That’s right, five days in a row with no talking myself into hitting the snooze button until the last possible second.
Which I will admit is quite the feat. I do not like mornings. I just don’t. I am comfy in my bed and really don’t like getting up. I have no problem staying up later to get something done. Personally if I could wait to roll out of bed around eight thirty to start the day and then just work later in the day to make up for it, i would.
However i do not live alone and the world can not just run on my schedule. (although really who got to decide the morning people ruled the world? I think they just made that decision before the rest of us were awake. maybe threatened to take away our coffee or something).
As much as it pains me to admit it, I do feel more awake even without my coffee after I have done my morning exercises. For me the trick is to start them before I am actually fully awake. So before bed I put ot the exercise clothes. Then when the alarm goes off I roll to the bathroom and then straight into the work out clothes before i have a chance to rethink it and head back to bed.
Then i am already in the clothes so i feel like I might as well just get it over with. For me that works best. I may feel more awake after the workouts and i may know it is good for me and I even may see a difference in the scale, but I am never going to be a huge fitness enthusiast. I am a reluctant participant. I’ll do it because it is good for me, but it will never be my happy place. Still it is helping me out, so I will continue. I am also pleased that the stiffness and sore muscles have also faded. On Monday I am going to add one extra exercise to my list and see what happens. I haven’t increased for a while and I think it is time. I go slow, and that too seems to work for me.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight: 231.3 lbs
This week’s Weight: 230.4 lbs
Lost this week: 0.9 lbs
Lost thus far: 15.6 lbs
And so the journey continues. I hope that where ever you are on your journey to a healthier you, that you are feeling good with yourself today. remember to celebrate the little things. this week i am celebrating the fact that i managed to get up and fight the urge to hit the snooze alarm, instead making it to all my regularly scheduled workouts. It is a small thing, but it will have big consequences if I make it a set habit.
No my darlings it is not Deja vu. This is the same weight as last week. To be honest, while I would always like to see the numbers shrinking, I am not terribly surprised. Last week I lost nearly three pounds which for me is a lot in a week. Usually I have a big loss and then not so big a loss the following week. I’m okay with that. If that trend holds up I will be fine.
This week was also very strange as far as exercise went. I managed to get a few walks in and I did about 40% of my indoor exercises. I know 40% is something I can work on but there was very little sun this week and with the flip flopping either my sinuses were running like a faucet. while I got stuff done this week there were days where breathing was sort of an achievement all it’s own.
So I am impressed there was no weight gain. That makes me feel good.
I owe that to keeping track of everything I ate. (I am using the My fitness pal app as my food diary.) I don’t know if this is a factor of getting older but if I just watch what I eat and limit my calories, I mange to not gain weight not lose it. It is only when I have a Wonder Twins Activate movement with exercise and calorie control that thigs start to move.
Perhaps that is another reason I am not terribly surprised there is no movement. It was more of a hold the line sort of week. with luck things will dry out next week and I can edge back into a decline in the scale numbers. For now, I feel content with what I have done. Part of that content may be the sinus meds kicking in and the ability to draw in deep breaths for the first time this morning, but I am not worried this week. It is only if the scale stays static for multiple weeks that i start to worry.
I will admit that his week was not the loss I hoped for. It is actually somewhat disheartening to see actually. I have started back on my indoor workouts and quite honestly my muscles are on the sore side. I know last week I was all “I’m going to do these every day!” but the truth is, that wasn’t what my body wanted and as they are strength training exercises I actually needed a day between to let the muscles rest.
So I went with the Monday, Wednesday Friday approach this week which was far more sensible. Monday was good and by Monday evening the soreness crept in. It’s presence was felt more on Tuesday, Wednesday morning wasn’t bad, but Wednesday night I was sore with increasing soreness on Thursday morning. This morning I was fine and I suspect i will be a little sore this evening and then a bit more sore tomorrow morning.
I know I planned to increase each week, but I think that I am going to listen to my body on that as well. When the soreness dies down a bit, I will increase. Then I’m sure i will be sore again.
There were a few things I was reminded of this week. The first is that I need to do these exercises first thing or I will find reasons to skip them. The best way for me to do this is to have my work out clothes already out. Tat way I see them first thing in the morning and just put them on. Then I can shower and change and get ready for my day. Starting the day off in workout clothes increases the chance that i will actually do the work out.
the second thing I need to remember that these are strength exercises which are important but don’t burn the same number of calories as cardio. This week there was not a lot of cardio. There was a lot of intermittent rain and most of my cardio is done out doors. It is a simple equation. I did find myself drawn into exercise equipment adverts more this week. Peloton commercials drew me in a couple of times. I also found myself strangely drawn to the curved treadmill. I don;t know why I find it so appealing but I do. I am disturbed that they didn’t have a price on the website, but I find the curved treadmill appealing. Maybe it is because I walk as so much of my exercise.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s weight: 235.3 lbs
This week’s Weight: 235.1 lbs
So over all not a mass of weight lost, barely a flicker. But I feel good, aside from the muscle stiffness and I think that counts for something. Now I just need to figure out if my treadmill window shopping is because I think it is a good idea to buy or because I simply miss the walking trail. The summer sun may cause me problems and cause me to realign my schedule, but the winter rains flood the walking trail for several days at a go. o at this time of year i always feel a little antsy. Still not sure if that is a treadmill endorsement or not, but I certainly feel it when I can’t get my walk in. fingers crossed that today the rains of last night will have dissipated and the trail will no longer be flooded by midafternoon. Then I can sneak a walk in and still window shop for exercise equipment. Next week looks to be drier so hopefully there will be more walking and more weightloss next week. At least that is the hope. I’m also hoping for a reduction in muscle stiffness, but only time will deal with that as well.
Oh my darlings today my bones feel like jelly. I am fine when sitting at my desk but once back in motion I can feel the inside of my muscles talking to me. I realized that I haven’t been pushing hard on a lot of my indoor workouts. I had a list of exercises to do but I would vary the number of reps I was doing. So I went back to my beginning list and saw the number of reps I started with. I think what happened was that every time I didn’t really feel like working out but made myself anyway, I shaved off a couple of reps to make myself feel better. And then later I forgot that I shaved them off.
And so I would go with that number until the next time i really wasn’t feeling it and there would be another couple of reps shaved off.
Not a very good spiral.
And so we make a spreadsheet. That’s right. Spreadsheet. Since today is Thursday i will call today and tomorrow part of next week’s week 1 and start writing things down. In case you are interested here is a screen shot of both the oddly long week one and week 2. Following weeks will be like week two. Each week I will increase the number done by a small amount I also usually take Saturday and Sunday off. Each time I complete one set I put an x in the box. I usually run through a set each morning (when I haven’t talked myself out of it) and occasionally I will do a second set in the afternoon. At least that is what i was doing when I was losing weight regularly. Which is why I will get back to it. Week one is getting me back into the habit of every day workouts and to make sure I stick to the proper numbers. The plan is this week to once again build the habit. Then next week I will increase the numbers slightly and add in one day where I do the work out’s twice. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Then we will see how it proceeds from there. Here is my preliminary chart.
I am sure things will shift as I get into it, but hopefully they will shift in the right direction. I just used a simple spread sheet. As I fill things In I will add additional weeks. I know that seems a little obsessive, but I generally find that when I write things down or require myself to keep an actual record then I am better able to stick with a schedule of this sort. I don’t suddenly decide that maybe 20 squats instead of thirty feels right today because I can’t put an x by the squats if i don’t complete the numbers. And If I can’t put the x by them then doing twenty isn’t going to be recorded.
I know there are a lot of people out there who start the new year off with plans to get in a better shape either for general health or weightless. if there is one thing I have learned in this entire process it is myself. I have learned more about how i think and how I process things than I ever thought i would. i have learned what motivates me and what will get me to stick to whatever plan I am doing.
i used to marvel that there were so many different systems or ideas about weight loss. And then I was told it was because every body is different. Which is true. however more importantly every mind is different. And it is the mind you have to engage in the process. now I’m surprised that anyone comes up with any weight loss system that works for anyone but themselves. For me part of what helps me out is writing things down, food, exercise, schedules. Seeing it all laid out and then being able to go back through and see the things I have checked off gives me motivation.
I should also mention i told a friend this and they shivered in revulsion and said they would never even start a work out if they had to write something down. it would doom them to failure. To each their own. I need the documents.
I didn’t actually mean to go off into weight loss land, but there we go. it is what is most on my mind today. But here we will leave it and get into today’s look. I went for a softer one today and am quite pleased with myself.
Primer: Marc Jacobs Under (cover) Blurfection Primer (discontinued- from the Use Up Box)
Okay first I have to do the happy dance. This was the last use of the Becca Pink Haze Setting Powder. It is no more. It is empty. Which means if nothing else I have managed to use up one of the items in my use up box. And considering how large the square powder box is, that is really helpful. i will have to find a pink setting powder to replace it, but it was time to let it go.
I also used the Marc Jacobs Primer from the box and will hopefully be letting that go by the end of the month.
The more i use this Bounce foundation the more I like it. It is very light weight and doesn’t require a lot of product to get the look i want. At the moment I don’t have any break outs so it isn’t really having to cover a lot and I still need to test it over larger blemishes, but it covers redness well and lasts all day long. I am glad they changed the packaging though as if you don’t tilt it just right or press too hard you can end up with foundation on your shirt rather than in the provided dip.
I really like the Pur palette which is odd since in general I am not a huge fan of the products I have tried from the brand. This palette however is an old standby and one that I will repurchase once this one is no longer usable. It is the perfect palette for travel and I really like all of the products in it. which again is odd since I have tried a couple of their products separately and wasn’t a fan. Something about this palette I just like.
I didn’t sleep terribly well and this yo-yo weather has my sinuses going crazy. Over all I don’t get sick much but every year I get a seasonal cold where my internal systems react to the weather changing. Usually it is in the spring or the Autumn. This year it seems to be every few weeks. So I went for the concealer. This color is perfect for me and I like the stick application as i an more easily put it where it needs to go. It is a formula that needs to warm up a little before use as it is a bit stiff. So I just hold it in my hand while I am studying the eyeshadow palette to see what look i want to put together. That generally warms it up enough for me. I have no had issues with it creasing and I need to remember to reach for this more often.
Speaking of eyeshadow. this was my first use of the Ciate Velvet Palette. For me Ciate Shadows are hit or miss. Sometimes I will get a palette and I just won’t like the formula. Other times I will get a palette and fall head over heals in love with the palette. Oh my darlings this is love. I am actually rather surprised by it as I expected this to be a shimmery palette I only occasionally used. It is mostly shimmers but a few shadows apply more matte than they look in the pan. And they applied beautifully. They went on smoothly and while pigmented weren’t over the top with the pigmentation so i was able to build them to what I wanted and the shimmers are stunning. I think I will be playing with this palette for a while.
As usual the Iconic London mascara is great at lengthening but that is about it.
In addition to the eyeshadow i think I am falling in love with the Revolution Pout Bomb. I think there may be a little plumping, I’ll do a photographic time check to be sure but even if it isn’t I really enjoy this formula. It feels a little sticky going on but the stickiness fades away pretty fast and you are just left with a clear gloss. (I’m sure they make other shades but I have clear). The best thing though is the vitamin E. even after the gloss wears off my lips feel nourished. i really like this lip gloss.
And so we will end on a high note. Fantastic shadow and fabulous lip gloss as well as a work out plan I can stick to. To me that makes this feel like a good day. i hope you are having a fantastic one as well.
It is always a disheartening sight to see any gain, but this week, I kind of knew it was coming. Monday I had my walk in with no problem. Tuesday the rains descended. It is still raining which means that the park is flooded as well as the rain is falling. while I did get some indoor workouts in and I actually feel really good about them, the workouts I do in doors simply don’t burn the same level of calories.
In addition i am getting ready for Thanksgiving travel. This week that meant extending my time at the desk as I try to clear a few days where I am not going to be around next week. And to be honest, I go through this every year. Around Thanksgiving everyone realizes that the holidays aren’t just upcoming, they are neigh. The it seems like everyone looks at the list they want to get through before the end of the year, and then subtracts the number of days everyone will have off for holidays and starts to freak out.
I actually get more work sent my way the week before Thanksgiving than any other week in the year.
After thanksgiving the holiday parties start to take the edge off. Plus everyone feels like they have already assigned everything that is coming up. At least where I am concerned.
Which means basically more desk and telephone time this week than anything else. And no escape into a walk either due to rain.
And while understandable, i am trying not to let it get me down. I know why the gain is there and I know what to do to correct it. I just was hoping it wouldn’t happen before a major feasting holiday. I like to go into the holidays as light as possible and that just wasn’t happening this year with everything that happened in the past few months.
I’m going to try not to let it get me down.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last weeks Weight: 232.8 lbs
This week’s Weight: 234.4 lbs
Change this week: +1.6 lbs
Lost thus far: 11.6 lbs
Not an inspiring sight when you see a plus sigh, but i will live and I will bounce back. Life and my weight loss journey will go on.
There is something almost amusing about this cycle. I lost 4 lbs and then stayed the same weight for two weeks in a row, then I lost two pounds and again I find myself at the same weight I was last week. Perhaps next week will be another two pounds gone, but this week, I have the same weight as last week.
It was an interesting week for workouts though. We started the week with rain and flooding of the walking tail so I ended up with indoor strength training exercises and watching my calories like a hawk. Midweek instead of a normal workout i spend pretty much half a day clearing fallen tree branches post Tuesday night windstorm. I have no idea how many calories were actually burned during that but i can tell you even now I can feel the effort in my arms.
Luckily by Thursday the park was no longer flooded and I could walk again. I think if left to just the strength exercises there would have been no workouts at all because Thursday my arms felt like limp noodles. Today they are just a little bit achy so I am sticking with the walking trail.
it is a good reminder of why i need to get the strength training exercises on a regular basis. I need to work on my arm strength. Because I burn more calories walking, and because I prefer to walk, that is what i concentrate on. I have also been about two years without a gym. Part of that is because of the pandemic, but even though I have been considering going back to the gym, it is on the other side of town and to be honest, gas prices are what is keeping me from actually signing up again. The nearest gym is on the other side of town and at the moment I am trying to reduce the amount I drive, not increase it.
I think if I can get into a set routine then I will be fine. The trick is that I need to make it a habit, regardless of the weather.
I know this may sound like an odd thought pattern, but part of this is due to the reasons I am trying to lose weight in the first place. I am not trying to look good in a bikini. I don’t need to fit into a specific dress or look good for a wedding or a reunion. I want to lose weight to take pressure off of my knees so that when i am in my 80s and 90s I have a better chance of them still working reasonably well. I want to be a healthy weight so my organs don’t have as big a strain. Health is the main goal.
Don’t get me wrong a smaller waist line and an expansion of the clothes I can fit into is also a big draw, because there are so many clothing items I like that they just don’t make in my size that I would love to be able to wear.
the big draw however is health. I want to be healthy and have my knees work and have the rest of me work as well. And so I need to remember my arms and abs and other bits of me that need to get back into working order. I don’t like working them as much as I like walking, so I tend to push it to the side. Unfortunately I don’t think that is good for me, so I need to find a way to encourage non-walking workouts on non-rainy days without a gym.
Yeah, its the encouragement that i am going to have to work on. Because I have the work outs. I just need to get into the habit of using them.
Something to think about today and maybe start implementing in the morning. Implementing today is just not happening. But tomorrow, my arms might not hurt as much and I might be able to talk myself into it. For now though…
Ah the scale, welcome back my old Frenemy. Last week I took a break because of illness. This week I have to admit I was more curious than fearful of what the scale would tell me. There were days where I didn’t eat much at all (or slept through meals entirely) and then as I felt better there were intense food cravings. Mostly due to skipped meals.
I had a very deep craving for protein actually. Eggs specifically. Eggs were my best-est of friends this week. As for fitness, that wasn’t really much of an option. On Wednesday I managed a short 20 minute walk just to get my body moving again.
It felt amazingly good to get moving again, but towards the end of the 20 minutes I began thinking I should have cut it off at 15. Thursday downpours kept me from repeating the experiment and the rains that started Thursday morning have yet to actually stop so I suspect today might be a wash out as well as far as walking is concerned. I did try a little yoga and I started to use the ab wheel. The problem is that bending over still gets me out of breath and light headed.
In case you hadn’t figured it out, I am in that weird stage where I am feeling better and ready to get back to normal but my body isn’t quite up to it yet. I know pushing it won’t help so I am trying to remind myself of that, but it is difficult. I’m hoping that with a quiet resting weekend this weekend I will be able to start edging back into regular workouts on Monday. Maybe shortened a little still, but more regular. If only because I am starting to get that twitchy I haven’t moved feeling.
Starting weight: 246.0 lbs
Last weigh in: 221.8 lbs
This week’s Weight: 221.4 lbs
Lost this week: 0.6 lbs
Lost thus far: 24.8 lbs
And so we move forward. Slowly, but forward. This weekend I am going to remind myself I still need rest and I am going to pull up a streaming site and find something to just completely binge out on. I know that Paramount + just put a whole bunch of Star Treks up so this might be the the weekend to binge out on that. I can go where no man has gone before, without actually leaving the couch. I just have to remember that rest now makes Monday that much closer to normal and ignore the fidgety stage of recovery.
I fully admit that I have an odd fascination with random workout tools. I think it comes from a childhood where things like the Thigh Master and the rowing exerciser. Both still disturbingly on sale on etsy and e-bay, I checked. I actually broke my toe with the rowing exerciser. I wanted to see how far the spring would stretch then I lost my grip on the slick handles. I smacked myself in the face and the handle whapped my toe (I was barefoot). It was not a good day.
The fascination remains, although now I actually read instructions.
I have however heard good things about these ab wheels and heard no stories of tow breakage. I was looking into picking one up to try, mostly because I need to do some work on my mid section instead of simply walking for my workouts and I can usually count on myself to give any new thing at least thirty days to see if it does anything. Then I ended up getting the Fab Fit Fun Box (I used my referral link for this so I think I get some kind of store credit if you use it. If that bothers you no worries, just goggle it instead of using the link) and this New Balance Ab Wheel was one of the items. I selected it.
It was easy to assemble and I have to be honest, it looked a bit like a toy. Still I was glad that the handles are textured for a more secure grip and since it was here, I figured I would give it a try. Like skincare exercise tools aren’t magic, so even though I did give it a first try i know I have to commit to using it for a month before I see any results. So this is just a first impression of the work out and a recording of measurements before the month begins.
The first think i noticed was that the wheel didn’t really like rolling on carpet. It didn’t roll smoothly and was hard to control. So I lay down the yoga mat. This worked fabulously well. It provided a smoother surface with no carpet fibers and the slightly textured surface of the yoga matt helped with my control. So I can tell you right away that I will be pairing this with my yoga mat.
The booklet that came with the Ab Wheel has three exercises listed on it so I did one set of each. As I progress maybe I will add in more but one set worked well for a first try. I did notice that Even though I was working my abs while using the tool I was also very firmly gripping those handles. I don’t know why but the first few exercises I sort of felt like it was going to suddenly roll out from under me and then I’d smack my nose into the floor.
I didn’t it behaved exactly as it should. My other fear was that as the athletic woman in the photo is much smaller than me, that the tool would not be good with my weight. while the wheel is plastic and the handles rubber, the shaft that runs through the wheels and is covered by the handles is metal. It was easily able to support the weight I put on it for the exercise.
I’ll admit, my focus was on the balance and not injuring myself. Which I managed to do and will hopefully not focus on so much moving forward. The first two exercises were on my knees and went fairly well. The standing workout pose “Pike Roll” took a little bit more time to get used to. And the next morning I felt that one in my calves as well as my abs.
I did feel the efforts from the day before. The Ab wheel may look like a toy of some sort but my body certainly feels the effects of using it. As I feel the muscle stiffness in the abs where the tool is supposed to work, then I feel I have at least used it appropriately.
And so the month begins. Before I end this post, there are the small matters of the measurements. I figured Waist and Hips would be appropriate so those are the two measurements given for the start of the thirty days with the New Balance Ab Wheel.
Waist: 48 inches
Hips: 50.5 Inches
I suppose we will se if in thirty days wither of those measurements change. Let the trial of the New Balance Ab wheel begin.
I know, the scale is just a number. However it does feel good when that number goes down. It feels especially good when you weren’t sure if it would.
This week was a hard week for me. On Monday I got up thinking I would get a walk in early and I ended up using my walking time to water the garden. I attempted a short walk but the heat was so oppressive that I just couldn’t do it. while i did get my timing down a little bit better and was able to get the morning watering in before the heat hit, walking was simply a no go this week.
usually we get this kind of bone soaking heat in the Dog Days which start late July and can run though August. They came early this year and I just wasn’t prepared. And even though I complained about the lethargy I felt at the beginning of the week, looking back (mostly through garden notes) in past years I have always felt it coming the first few days where the temps spike and soak the world with heat and humidity. The sun beating down on the house causes blinds to be shut on the side where it strikes, the open and shut rotation of blinds changing as the sun tracks across the sky. this makes the house feel shadowed and half asleep. which brings on my annual heat lethargy.
The different I think is that i expect those few days in late summer where the heat becomes too much. We went from just getting hot to oppressive really quickly this year. but as always after a couple of days letting it settle in, the routine shifted and things adjusted. Where I like it is a thing. we are lucky in that the winter isn’t harsh. i have to adjust for rains and blasts of icy winds, but there are maybe a couple of weeks in the winter where i can’t face being out doors. The summertime here though can be a killer.
Literally. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke have taken down many a person. I’ve made myself sick with it, in fact i did so earlier this month (a mild version that warned me to think about when I went outside but caused no permanent damage). Our winters don’t have the biting killing cold other places have, but the summer heat and humidity make up for it. it is just usually more bearable until later in the summer. August is the month where you begin to despair of ever seeing autumn and think happy thoughts about possibly relocating to northern Canada just so you can take a deep breath without feeling like you are drowning in humidity soaked heat.
the heat is like a live beast. You move slowly so as not to draw it’s attention and try to travel after dark when it might be resting.
with the switch, I wasn’t sure i would actually lose any weight but apparently I did. To be honest, i think it is less lost to the effort department and more because it was too hot to actually eat.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs

I think my body has adjusted. There will be slower movements and adjusted timetables for a while, but I am hoping that the lethargy has moved on and that even if i am moving slow, I can still get back to moving. Just indoors, and with a lot of water.
The last weigh in for May and I am pleased to see the scale numbers descending. It is a very good feeling. I was a little surprised actually. It has been a strange week. My schedule was off, we had workmen at the house on Monday so I couldn’t leave, we had rain that flooded the park and then when it finally looked like a walk was allowable, I realized the weather had officially shifted.
no longer could i just look outside to make sure it wasn’t raining and that I needed a break. We have entered the time of year where a walk is the first thing on the days agenda. Which means that the entire schedule for my work days has to be adjusted. Walking after about 10 in the morning is just not going to happen. Anytime I need a work out after ten am it is going to be an indoor one just to stave off heat stroke.
Which also means I need to shift my shower times (because I am going to sweat even on the early morning walks and don’t want to sit around all stinky for the day’s work.) Most of my interactions are on the phone or via computer so I’m the only one who knows, but I feel grungy, which I don’t like.
I know it sounds strange but the summer time is always a strange workout set up. There isn’t just the time a daily work out takes away from your work day (which can be substantial), but in the summertime there is an extra dimension with the heat. To get the work outs in it needs to be a priority, but at the same time there are many other priorities in the work day. Summer time scheduling always makes me feel like I’m doing some sort of complicated word problem for an unexpected math class. As though one of my old math teachers has snuck up on me when i wasn’t looking and announced a pop quiz.
If a short walk takes forty-five minutes and requires a ten minute cool down before a shower can be taken, and a shower where the hair is rinsed but not washed with products takes ten minutes less than a shower where the hair is washed with products and a walk can only occur before ten am, what time do you need to set the alarm to allow your hair to dry before the 11:15 zoom meeting next Tuesday?
Fun stuff. I’m actually going to have to get a new hair dryer at some point soon. The cool setting on my hair dryer is no longer blowing quite so cool and using the hot air function will just make me sweat again so, it is air dry the bangs and wrap the still wet part up in a knot on the back of my head when meeting’s arise time.
It’s not an actual complaint, more something I never realized would happen when I began seriously trying to better my health through regular exercise. Somehow it simply didn’t factor in that the exercise had to be fit in somewhere and that that somewhere would require conscious thought.
Summertime is just the season that requires a bit more thought for scheduling than others. Things to think about.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs

And so my darlings, with the scheduling for next week needing a bit of a look through and Friday’s work to get started, I leave you. while it was an off kilter week, in the end it worked well or at least I lost a little bit of weight. I’m hoping to keep this trend going.
