Weekly Weight: ?

Several of you may notice there is no photo accompanying this post at the top.  Look at you smarty pants. And now everyone is wondering why there is no scale.

I too am wondering why there is no scale. 

In fact I have been wondering it for quite a while this morning.  You see I woke up, went to the bathroom and low and behold there was an empty square of time where the scale usually resides. Now in general scales do not just get up and walk about on their own. 

At least I hope not.

I do not live alone so the thing to do would be to ask about to see if anyone else knows the location of the scale. 

However my baby doll had to head out to work a bit early this morning (they are preparing for some sort of furniture delivery) and so by the time I went looking to ask him about the scales disappearance, he was already gone.  I sent a text but have yet to hear a response.

In the past he has used it when they needed to weigh packages and estimate shipping charges.  That is the only reason I can think of that he would actually abscond with the scale.  I’m sure I’ll find out the details later. 

So there is no official weigh in this week.

This week was a strange one.  Monday went off without a hitch, everything proceeding as planned. Tuesday involved a trip to the dentist and wondering if art thieves had developed a penchant for dental themed art work.  Wednesday started off normal and then turned into a neighborhood flood, and power outage extravaganza. And while Thursday returned to normal I escaped to the gym to use the treadmill instead of wading through the flooded park. How today turns out is anyone’s guess.

We have a nice quiet weekend planned so that could end up interesting as well. In general ,this week relied mostly on my portion control.  I think I did pretty good.  I don’t think I lost much of any weight, but I don’t think there was any gain.  Without the scale I have no way of proving that though.  Hopefully tomorrow morning I can check it and see. But my pants aren’t any tighter which is always a good sign. Admittedly they aren’t any looser either.

As for my shoes, I have pictured them below. 

Brand new shoes on the left and the same shoes with one month’s worth of wear

There isn’t much more wear than there was last week, however you might notice that they are cleaner.  I attempted a walk in the park when the water retreated and squelched down deep in the mud.  The air holes in the side of the sneakers meant to let your feet breath acted as mud sucking vacuums and when I got home the shoes needed to be chucked into the washer if I ever planned to wear them again.  I ended up drying them in a no heat dryer with a bunch of towels to keep it from banging up the dryer drum too much. 

They came out clean and no longer saturated with mud.  My feet are happy and the shoes took no damage. It’s a win-win. Thus far I have to say I am really liking these sneakers for walking.  They are light weight and they breathe well.  They are sturdy and while there is some wear the soles aren’t wearing down too fast. They are New Balance Fresh Foam Arishi (if they have a number I didn’t see it) in case you are wondering.  And no I am not an affiliate of any sort.  These just happened to be the sneakers I picked up to try out. They looked like they would be good for walking and thus far, they have been. Now I just have to wear them until they can’t be worn anymore and evaluate whether or not I want to get another pair just like it or try something new. Since they are comfortable, I am just waiting on the wear factor to figure that out. Hopefully it will take a while as they have just reached the comfortable stage of worn in.
