Right here it’s, as soon as once more, beginning my weblog publish at 9:30 PM. It has been one other busy day, however fortunately, Noah’s room is just about finished and I can take a break tomorrow. I believe I’ll simply sleep all day lengthy 😉
I completed his cabinets and I LOVE THEM. They appear so significantly better than what I might had in thoughts earlier than. And I am sorry, however I’ll wait to publish an image till I do a “reveal” publish (in all probability tomorrow) to indicate all the work I did on his bed room in only a few brief days. Noah was so so so excited when he noticed it–he gave me an enormous bear hug and mentioned “I like you”. What’s extra rewarding than that, coming from a 17-year outdated boy? (I am so glad he favored it, as a result of this was his 18th birthday current; he turns 18 on July thirteenth.)
Anyway, for my Wednesday Weigh-In… my eating regimen was an enormous outdated mess this week. I spent a lot of the days not consuming a lot as a result of I used to be busy within the storage, however then once I got here in for the evening, I ate manner an excessive amount of as a result of I used to be ravenous. Outdated habits, proper?
Additionally, I’ve been form of emotional these days. On Sunday, I had a very dangerous day emotionally (which is why I used to be going to have Jerry write my weblog publish). Yesterday was one other day that I simply needed to curve up on my sofa and conceal below a blanket. I am undecided what’s inflicting it, however I think that I could also be coming down from a hypomanic episode. Oh, the enjoyable of bipolar!
The week began out very well, and I really noticed 144.4 on the size! At present, nonetheless, my poor decisions confirmed up:
Contemplating I used to be 148.4 final week, a 1.2-pound loss this week is sweet! However I simply have not been doing the work I must do so as to persistently lose the burden. Seeing 144.4 was exciting–but then I used that as an excuse to eat extra.
I’ll say, although, that I am actually impressed with myself for sticking inside a comparatively tight weight vary. Although every time I achieve it appears like a little bit little bit of a failure, I simply have a look at what I weighed final yr at the moment (or heck, even six months in the past) and I be ok with it.
I *nonetheless* have not been counting my energy, although, and I do know that if I did that, I might be capable to drop the additional weight. I eat the identical issues for breakfast and lunch, and I assume that dinner cannot be that dangerous. At present I had cauliflower and potato curry and it was scrumptious! I’ll publish the recipe this weekend as my vegan recipe overview.
My dinners aren’t unhealthy; I simply eat an excessive amount of. After which within the evenings, I snack. I do know I sound like a damaged report… the reality is, I do know precisely what I must do and now I simply must do it.
So far as working, I nonetheless have not finished it *groan*. Nevertheless, Jen–a blog-reader-turned-friend who I met for lunch shortly earlier than the pandemic–invited me to hitch her at her trip dwelling in upstate Michigan later this summer season. Her husband is occurring a fishing journey one weekend and there’s a 5K happening at a quarry–which sounds so enjoyable!
So, I am planning on doing that along with her, which suggests I must get again to working recurrently. Coronary heart price and tempo and all that be damned. I simply must run! I am trying ahead to going someplace, too. Aside from going to my sister’s property with my household, I have not been on a visit since 2019.
Okay, I’ve acquired to prepare for mattress. I’ve gotten no sleep for the previous few days and now I really feel like I’ll crash. G’evening!
