Good morning my darlings and welcome to Friday morning. It has been a rough week for me. I apologize if I have been off all week. In addition to starting the new workout schedule I had the dentist this week. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but I have a slight phobia about the dentist. It isn’t rational. He is a lovely man. In fact all of my dentists have been lovely people. the phobia is entirely irrational.
As soon as I make a dental appointment, the nightmares start. I alternate between two actually. There is one where the dentist slips and plunges one of the dental tools into my eye by mistake blinding me. And yes in the dream he usuallty slips on a banana peel just for that extra ludacris effect. although the second one is worse as far as logic goes. In that dream the dentist pulls out a tooth, finds it is deeply attached and keeps tugging, finally pulling my brain out of the tooth’s roots as though it was some sort of bizarre imitation of the Egyptian’s mummification ritual. I know that given the shape of the human skull and how things are actually connected that is beyond ridiculous but still, the dream haunts me.
It means the days leading up to the dentist I don’t get a lot of sleep, and then i am cranky due to lack of sleep and my own annoyance with myself at the dreams. Add in the new work out and I am just kind of toasted.
But things turned out okay yesterday. I wasn’t blinded and my brains weren’t ripped out in a pseudo mummification process. I had a fairly good night’s sleep last night so I am starting to feel more like me again. which is always nice. And despite everything I managed to shave off a little weight this week and I think I might have a pretty good handle on my schedule so i won’t get backed up next week. At least that is the plan.
To the stats!
Last week: To the Stats!
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight 217.2 lbs
This week’s weight: 216.8
Change this week: lost 0.4 lbs
Lost over all thus far: 29.2 lbs
Okay slowly but surely moving forward. I know the new routine isn’t mgic but I did hope for a little bit more weight lost. I think stress may have thrown me a bit. But progress is still progress. And when I actually get to 30 lbs lost I will be doing the happy dance. It will be long and it will probably have no rhythm as my brain tries to mash up several different songs, but I will dance.
In other updates: The shoes.
A little more wear on the toes As you can see, it is not a comparison photo. I went into my folder this morning and realized in my grand purge I erased the photos. However I think i still have them on my i-pod. I’ll be going in this weekend and seeing if I can track them down. I haven’t cleaned that file out yet and as I deleted several of my before and after photos for skin care I am really hoping they are still tucked away. So fingers crossed that i will have the before and after photos when the shoes are finally word though. At the moment though they are perfectly worn in and not worn out so i have time. I believe we are coming up on the three month mark for the shoes and their use so so far, so good.
