Good morning one and all, once again it seems my weight is on the decline. It’s actually a bit surprising really. Walks this week have been hit or miss. I mostly had my fingers crossed that I would break even. So the loss was actually a lovely Friday morning surprise.
This week has been random as far as workouts go. The rain kept me inside for a lot of the week. The park flooding kept me off the walking trail when the rain stopped. It was hand weights and indoor exercising for the most part. Five pound dumbbells and my wrap around leg weights for the most part.
I have to say I really had fun with the leg weights. Well the workouts with them weren’t ‘fun’ exactly. What was fun was that I decided to leave them on for a bit as I went through my day. So I had them on when I went to get coffee or to pick up the mail, or to make sure my garden was draining properly instead of becoming a swamp. Then in the late afternoon I took the leg weights off and felt like I was floating. That part was fun.
It was an immediate weight loss.
It also reminded me of how good it feels to lose actual weight.
Which I also did this week. At least in a small increment.
Starting Weight: 246.0 lbs
Last week’s weight: 217.2 lbs
This week’s weight: 216.8 lbs
Lost this week: 0.4 lbs
Lost over all: 29.2 lbs
Amusingly enough the weight I lost this week was exactly the same amount of weight I gained last week. Well, it’s amusing this week. It will be less amusing if the back and forth becomes habit. But that is not a thought I will entertain. For that path leads to despair. And I am not in the mood for despair. I’m in far too good a mood for that. So I am going to take the loss and roll into my day. I feel certain that today is going to be a good one. I feel certain yours is going to be fabulous as well.
