I don’t have it in me to write much. Today we lost a loved pet named Sophie. She was adopted/ rescued about 7 years ago. She was a nervous gentle giant. We let her bark( which she didn’t do or wag her tail for the first 6 months after she had cluster seizures from detoxing from tranquilizers her previous owners gave her. ) and come in and out as she pleased. She loved attention and was the size of a person being half st Bernard and half great pyr.
Well I am writing this with tears streaming. So I shall go now.
So, I got sleep. No more punch drunk ramblings today. I like sleep. I can get by on less sleep more than many, but I really like sleep. I always wake up clinging to more water after a catch up sleep. I swear days like this I always feel heavier and the scale concurs.
Sometimes if I just sit around for a couple hours then weigh in again I see my actual weight. It’s the weirdest thing.
Anywho, on the gambion I mentioned yesterday. For high cost reasons, it shan’t happened at this time. I just had too many doubts doing it the cheaper way and doing it more correctly was going to be more expensive than doing a wood fence. ( if you’ve been to a hardware store lately you know of which I speak. ) The gambion would cost me around $22 a foot for me to do, not a pro. So, instead, I have ordered a normal field fence and we shall turn it into a privacy fence. No more waiting, delaying, some-daying.
That means I don’t need the $5k for a front fence any longer and if the fence is up I can buy my sheep next spring, before the time frame of me winning the Healthy Wage bet. So, wonder what the plan is now? I suppose the vehicle if we haven’t replaced our current before then. I have a feeling we will have, though.
Things just feel good. They feel like they’re moving in the right direction. ( yes I feel this way when I didn’t post a scale loss)
It’s been 30 days now. Still at 15lbs down because no new number to post. That’s approximately .5 lbs a day. That’s fantastic. I’m still eating basically whatever I want, within reason, and exhaling that weight away.
I will be doing my weigh in Saturday and updating my measurements and taking my update monthly pictures Monday before work.
I got maybe 3 hours of sleep last night. Various things to blame, my own brain most of all. So, for many years ( basically since moving in) I’ve wanted a privacy fence in front. I have decided on something unique that I can do a piece at a time. So that came to me oh around 3am. It’s called a Gabion wall.
I plan for it to be similar to this but smaller spaced wire, smaller rocks and the top 6-9 inches to be dirt and flowers of some sort, probably Hyacinths.
Anywho enough of my abstract thoughts. Today is an off day for exercise. Woo, I’m glad since I’m exhausted. I did get a new recent high yesterday for my walk length. ( recent as in past few months furthest I’ve walked) of .79 of a mile. It actually was probably closer to .85 as I had my hrm paused for a few minutes of walking. I’ll be up to making the round trip 1.6 mile trip to the store soon.
Pretty chill Monday so far. I slept in, which is rare but always nice. It looks like it only rained a tiny bit, meaning if we don’t get a solid rain in the next day or two I will have to haul the hose way over to water the garden. We shall see. We have a decent chance the next few days.
Why did I start with a garden/weather update? The title clearly says Video Check In, so where’s the YouTube link? There should be no link needed. I updated the site so enjoy the video below.
Hopefully, that is clear and slightly better than the last couple. We shall see, I suppose. I plan to do those every Monday. I plan to try to record the dancerobics probably next week if I can get everything set up right.
My brain is always working and striving for knowledge. I’m almost always, reading or watching something that either brings me joy or knowledge, sometimes both. A day or two ago, I ran across info about what happens to fat once it breaks down. Sure, it’s used for energy, but it doesn’t just go poof.
Energy never just dissappears. It always takes a new form. So, basically, most of the fat molecules break down to their individual parts and you get rid of them through sweat, waste and exhaling. Since you’re constantly breathing, that where most leave. I think that’s just neat!
So, I gave in and weighed again this morning. Down another pound! I drank so much water yesterday, I’m surprised I didn’t burst.
I’m not surprised by the loss, would have been surprised not see one as I’m still fasting haha! I didn’t intend to do a full day fast, but we were so busy and then I didn’t even get hungry until after 3pm and was just like to heck with it, it’s only 6-7 hours until bedtime haha.
Full fasting actually has many health benifit, including improving your immune function. I may add a full fast day once a month, but, if doing so, I have to also add an eat at least 1700 calorie day to keep the metabolism up and not get used to such low amounts constantly.
Anywho, lots to do today, including starting to protype thigh guards. I have two friends who volunteered to be my beta testers once I’ve tried it out awhile.
