Hey guys! Had a total relapse into workaholic mode Thursday through Monday, and I can feel it. I know now that I am not going to complete NaNoWriMo, given what I’ve got going on this month, and when I next talk to David, we’re going to look at November and figure out what I can do with the way it’s stacked up and what I’m learning about myself.
Meanwhile, I have Paradise Icon 2 this weekend. I’m ready, and I’ve got that in hand. I have most things at work in hand. My dining room is being worked on, but hey, I think that it’s kind of fun to have my dining room table in my living room. No, that’s whimsy.
Yet, my chest is tight, and something isn’t quite right. I need to relax. I’ll be working on that over the next two days. I have some off time tomorrow.
Here’s your fitness report for this week
Here are some statistics for you. I’ll complete these after today’s Weight Watchers Meeting.
Exercise Points Goal: 14
Achieved Points: 31
What’s happening here: I worked out while I traveled, and while I couldn’t exercise every day, I worked out for 4 days, usually around an hour a day, but sometimes with small bursts elsewhere. Not too shabby.
This week I ate 8 more points than I had allocated. Travel, hunger. So there’s that.
Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.
Wii Weight on 11-5-13: 215
Total: 8.8 pounds LOST
Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 11-5-13: 218.4
Total: 5.6 pounds LOST
Why the discrepancy? Someone switched over to winter clothes, and it cost her 0.6 pounds at this afternoon’s weigh in.
Interesting things this week: I took treats to Minneapolis and managed to avoid…lots of sugar. I walked while we were gaming for 90 minutes (pacing on a stair stepper). I found that in the gravied German Amana food paradise that someone is making a great grilled chicken and a vegetarian orzo.
Next week: OMG, a convention! As one gets tired, one’s judgment gets worse, so I have to stay on task. I plan to not work out Thursday and Friday (really just can’t find the time), but will work out Saturday and Sunday. I expect Sunday will be re-establishing my dining room as an independent entity.
Food? What I will do is stay out of the con suite (or if I do go in, the rule is water, veg, or fruit). And I will eat Power Foods as much as I can. I will also make an effort to save most of my point pool for this weekend, just in case. If it turns out that I don’t need them, I will have something nice on Sunday and Monday, my indulgence for the week. I expect, however, that I will need them, and should have them.
Okay, I’m off for some dinner and a friend’s birthday party. Have a great evening.
