Runs for Cookies: Wednesday Weigh-In: Week 114

Wednesday Weigh-In title

I actually like the best way this shirt seems to be with these denims I altered. It type of balances the darkish denim. And I have been sporting these headbands just about each day–I am just about obsessive about them. They cowl my grey hair after I determined have to dye it, and when I’ve day-old oily hair, they arrive to the rescue ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’ve to say–I can NEVER EVER get headbands to remain on my head! However these do not budge. I am amazed, really.

I feel I will order one other pack of various colors–they are available packs of 4. (You will discover them right here on Amazon–this is an affiliate hyperlink, which implies I could earn a small fee for recommending them, however I purchased them with my very own cash and I like them.) I at all times put on them the tiniest bit over the tops of my ears, in any other case they make my ears stick out (simply in case you’ve gotten the identical drawback). Yesterday, they saved a shit ton of sweat pouring into my eyes…

So, on Day 1 of my problem to get in 10,000 steps in August went nice! I wound up with greater than my purpose, at 12,910 steps.

steps per day

I’ve to say, that is going to be way more difficult than I assumed! I took Joey on a stroll within the morning to get a jumpstart. However for so long as you stroll, it seems like SO many extra steps than it truly is.

Jerry is doing a giant challenge at work (it is an incredible alternative for him!) nevertheless it’s laborious work. (That is type of what I used to be alluding to yesterday.) So, I’ve needed to attenuate any type of chores he usually does at home–like yard work. Together with reducing the grass. I do know that I’ve two teen boys who’re MORE than able to doing it, however I have been desirous to strive it myself; it appeared like it will be enjoyable to do the repetitive again and fourth motions. (We do not have a driving lawnmower, or a self-propelled one; only a common previous push mower.)

Yesterday, I made a decision to provide it a strive. I did not suppose I might ever lower grass earlier than, however I discovered an previous photograph from 2011 after I apparently did it! Truthfully, I most likely give up after the photograph, hahaha.

I can not consider how laborious mowing the garden yesterday was on my physique! I’ve blisters on my arms and ft, and my calves are killing me. I used to be POURING sweat and my shirt was drenched after I was finished. The truth is, take a look at how a lot water weight I misplaced in lower than two hours:

Sure, that might be 2.2 kilos. I’ve by no means even misplaced that a lot from a long term! And that is *after* I drank most likely about 12 oz. of water. Naturally, I took a few selfies to indicate Jerry simply what I do to indicate how a lot I like him ๐Ÿ˜‰

The garden is way larger than the small photograph I posted of that a part of the yard.

The very very first thing I did after I was finished, earlier than I even gulped down water, was head straight to the toilet, flip the tap within the bathe to the ludicrous-cold setting (actually no heat/scorching water in any respect) and after a few minutes of barely with the ability to breathe from the chilly, it felt SO AMAZING. I may have stayed in there all day lengthy.

Anyway, on to my weigh-in (which was type of spoiled above). I used to be at 133.8 yesterday morning…

Weight 133.8

That is simply 0.8 from what has been thought-about my “purpose weight” for years. So, I am nonetheless dropping weight persistently, consuming *nearly* persistently, and I really feel good!

Right this moment, I have been on the go all day, and I used to be shocked to see that I solely have 8,000 steps to date! (It is mid-afternoon, so if I nonetheless want extra later, I am going to take Joey for an additional stroll.) I needed to return some issues to Amazon–which apparently makes use of Staples as a drop-off now as nicely. It type of sucks going from Kohl’s, to UPS, to Staples–all for Amazon returns.

However I do love that they’ve an incredible return coverage. I additionally needed to go to FedEx for one of many returns as a result of it was a third-party vendor (I’ll by no means make that mistake again–it’s been a headache, leaping via hoops with this firm. I additionally walked Joey and went grocery purchasing.

Now I’ve laundry to place away and thank God, we’ve got a lot of leftovers from final evening’s dinner. So we’ll be consuming that! (Somebody requested about Jerry’s Beans & Greens recipe–he’s modified it some, so I am going to kind it out and submit that quickly.)
