I’ll admit, 0.2 lbs isn’t much of a loss, but I am happy with it. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely certain there would be a loss this week. After some debate, this week we actually left the house for a grocery run. It was a very quick one, mostly to pick up fresh veg (is it strange that the sight of fresh spinach made me giddy?) we decided to support one of our local restaurants who are still doing take out.
I have to say, take out food has never felt so clandestine.
We called in our order and were given an approximate time and told we would be called from the parking lot. At the appropriate time we pulled into the parking lot and saw we weren’t the only ones waiting. As we waited we saw other people receive their order. The person dispensing the orders would walk out place the to go box on a cloth covered restaurant style trolly (it looked like something a fancy old school place would wheel deserts around on. As this is a mexican place and they never wheeled anything around I’m guessing that it was used for another purpose, but that’s what it looked like). He then backed away and made a call on his cell phone. A person would exit one of the vehicles and walk over to pick up their order while being watched from the man standing six feet away. They would take their food and then he would whisk the cloth napkin away, toss it in a bin with the word WASH/LAVAR printed on it in sharpie. A new cloth was then laid down and the process repeated.
No one said a single word.
There were nods and the occasional smile. well from patrons anyway. The staff member of the restaurant was wearing both gloves and a face mask.
It felt a little nefarious.
But let me tell you those enchiladas were so worth the relay system. I over ate, but I can’t really regret it. Its the first meal I haven’t cooked in a while. The next day my body was not happy with me about the over indulgence and protested the mass quantities of gooey melted cheese and the restaurant level sodium content. I could actually feel my fingers swell.
But we supported a locally owned restaurant we love and restocked on fresh veg. So all is well. even though our governor is lifting a lot of the restrictions next week, it is doubtful we will leave the house for supplies for another few weeks at least. we are well stocked. So I have plenty of time to get over the mass of cheesey goodness.
I know, the excitements right now are small ones, but still kind of fun.
So the stats:
Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last Week’s weight: 207.4 lbs
This Week’s Weight: 207.2 lbs
Weight lost this week: 0.2 lbs
Weight lost thus far: 38.8 lbs
Weight left to lose (apx).: 84.2 lbs
So that is all for my Friday update. I will see you all back here this afternoon for the Friday Face Mask. Hope everyone has a great Friday!
I’m pasting a couple of sale codes below for use by those looking to restock beauty supplies from home. Hope they help.
