Welcome to Friday the thirteenth. I know it really isn’t any spookier than any other day. I will say however that no one thought to explain this to my coffee pot. It chose this morning for catastrophic failure. As reported by my babydoll. Apparently, there were sparks.
My baby doll wakes up before I do because he really needs a few hours of mosey awake time in the morning. Oddly, he is a morning person, he just likes to take his time and savor the first hours of the day.
My wierdo who I love, but still
I am more of a get up and get moving because I have no choice about being awake at this ungodly hour sort of person. Admittedly I like to savor the night and could happily wind my day down slowly and maybe mosey to bed at two in the morning (provided I didn’t have to get up in the morning, which sadly I do) whereas once he reaches a certain point of the night then he has to fight to stay awake until bedtime and then conks out as soon as he lays down as though someone hit him with a brick. And then he doesn’t move until he wakes up the next morning.
It is somewhat disconcerting.
As I can count on one hand the number of times I have actually slept through the night, all of which are tied to some sort of illness or the fact that I stayed up more than twenty four hours straight prior to the sleep fest, I didn’t realize that real people actually did that. I thought it was only in movies and cartoons. You know, some sort of idealized version of sleep.
I wake up every hour or two even with a sleep mask and sleepytime gummies. I sort of cat nap throughout the night. A good night’s sleep means two blocks of three hours straight in one night, occasionally with an hour awake in between. And before you ask, any sleep drugs stronger than the gummies make me sleep walk. It’s just the way I am wired. Drove my mom crazy when I was a kid since she was convinced I needed to sleep through the night. My dad wasn’t worried since apparently he did the same thing. And so did his dad. As well as a couple of my cousins.
So at least it is genetic.
But regardless this is not about my odd fascination with the fact that some people can actually sleep an entire night through. It is about weight, the losing there of or in this week’s case the maintaining of the same number.
Yeah you aren’t wrong if you think you’ve seen this number before. It is the same as last week. So this week no loss, but at least no gain. As I needed to take a few days off of walking, partially because of the blister I walked onto the back of my heel but mostly because the rain is still keeping the park flooded, I didn’t get as much calorie burning exercise in as I planned. I tried portion control so I was mostly able to stay within my calories. The issue was that I did my menu planning intending to walk and my break from walking came towards the end of the week when I had fewer meal switching options. But that is okay. The rain will end, the park will dry and my blister will heal. And in the end, I didn’t gain anything this week.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last Week’s Weight: 215.0 lbs
This Week’s Weight: 215.0 lbs
Lost this week: 0.0 lbs
Lost thus far: 31.0 lbs
And now I am off to dig out the glass stovetop percolator from the depths of the cabinet. The last time it was used was during a power outage. It became my BFF then. My babydoll used the French Press. If I can’t find my beloved percolator than I will go the French press option myself. But fear not, the now deceased Mr. Coffee will be mourned.
And apparently even as the French press brewed my Babydoll’s morning cup, he ordered a new Mr. Coffee, a replacement is eminent. Which is kind of amusing. He has been talking about getting a newer fancier coffee pot for a while. I’m not sure which bells and whistles he things we need but he loves his gadgets. This is far from the first coffee pot we have killed but each time, he automatically orders the exact same as a replacement. The about three weeks later he realizes that he missed his opportunity and pouts for a week. Then we get some other completely unrelated gadget that he has been eyeing and hasn’t gotten around to purchasing. It’s sort of our in house system. I can’t wait to see what arrives by mail about a month from now. The new coffee pot will however be here this weekend.
