Good morning and welcome to another Friday morning weigh in. This morning I am actually pretty happy with what i saw on the scale. My weight went down, which was a bit of a happy surprise. My walks this week were cut a bit short. Also while I manage to do some weights and yoga at the beginning of the week, that drifted out of my plans as I substituted morning gardening chores for actual workouts.
I knew I was sweaty at the end of my garden work but I didn’t think that I burned all that many calories. I thought I might actually remain static and just sort of hoped not to gain.
This week was interesting as we are in a strange time of year. There are many autumnal chores that need to be completed, but the summer sun is still scorching. And then there is the rain. I think I spent more time in the evenings this week trying to plan and balance the following schedule than usual. There was only so much time where it was feasible to be outside so planning was needed.
In addition I sort of did myself in a bit.
I took extra strength sleep gummies and ended up feeling draggy in the mornings without realizing why. I didn’t take them last night and this is the first morning I’ve woken up without feeling like getting out of bed was akin to pulling myself out of quicksand.
So this morning I feel surprisingly awake and ready to face the day. It’s Friday of course so there is just a lot to do followed by the weekend. It’s good to be excited about the weekend. But at least I am energized about clearing off the end of the week items from my checklist before the weekend. And I know that next week I will not face each day as draggy as I did this week.
I suppose the moral of that story is read the labels.
And if extra strength takes you down, maybe realize you don’t need extra strength. You know, once you realize that you are in fact taking the extra strength.
Starting Weight: 246. 0 Lbs
Last Week’s Weigh: 216.8 lbs
This week’s Weight: 216.0 lbs
Lost this week: 0.8 lbs
Lost over all: 30 lbs
And so onward and upward, or at least plowing through the end of week paperwork without feeling half asleep. Happy Friday everyone!
