How do you like my Big Bang Theory-inspired title of this blog?? ;o)
My mind feel like a pinball machine tonight… I have so many different thoughts running through my brain! So, I am going to bombard you with lots of stuff, some random and some related. I hope that is ok with you all! :o) (and, just so you are not confused, my final thoughts on here will be written in the morning after I weigh myself.)
Pinball Number One: I had to fast last night through lunch today. I had fourteen hours without food, which left me feeling like a bottomless pit for quite a while this afternoon and evening. I tried to make good choices, and did not stuff myself with a bunch of junk, but I am pretty sure that I went over my calories a bit. I am honestly too tired to try to remember everything I ate to see how I did!
Pinball Number Two: I have been going out to my parent’s house once a week since the beginning of June, to get Zeeva accustomed to taking naps there. We are hoping that this will help her be ok with her first overnight away from us, which is supposed to be happening at the end of July. Send up prayers for that one please! Anyway, she is doing really good with the naps. She does not sleep as long as she does at home, but she has been going to sleep without a fuss, which is great. And I have been trying to be less involved with the process… Today, I even went out and floated in the pool before it was time for her nap, so she would not be looking for me at nap time. I have to say, it was glorious to float in the pool this afternoon! I was out there for about an hour and a half, and it felt awesome. The water was perfect. The temperature was hot, but I felt great with it since I was mostly in the water. I even fell asleep for about a half hour while I was floating on my back on one of the floaties. Yep, it was great! I did feel guilty though… Thomas was at home, sick for the second day in a row and still having to work. One of the “perks” of being self-employed. I do not think that most people understand that.
Pinball Number Three: When I was somewhere between the ages of fifteen and eighteen, I was sleeping over at one of my best friends houses and cut my leg on the metal corner of the roll-away bed. It bled quite a bit and took quite a while to heal, and I had a scar for a few years. It would get more pronounced during the summers, when I had a bit of a tan. But I have not seen any inkling of it in at least a handful of years, so I thought that it had probably just faded away. I no longer think that. I thought I saw a glimpse of it a few weeks ago, and I noticed it again tonight, but it was much more prominent than it was a few weeks ago. I am sure that me being out in the sun so much lately has helped it to become more visible. But I think the reason I am able to see it again after so many years of thinking it was just gone is because of my weight loss. I think that my body was so stretched when I was heavier that it just stretched the scar out until it was invisible. And, now that I have lost fifty pounds, it is visible once again. It is really bizarre to me some of the changes that your body undergoes when losing so much weight!
Pinball Number Four: I only have FOUR more workouts on this round of ChaLEAN Extreme! This is the Burn phase… Next is the Push phase, which involves even less reps with even more weight. I am loving this program, I am so very glad that Thomas got it for me! Sunday will be our last workout on this set, and then we take our 30-day measurements on Monday! Woohoo! I am so excited to see those results. I am really hoping that I am not disappointed.
Pinball Number Five: Today was weigh-in day. I am happy to report that I was able to add another 0.9 pounds lost to my total from Sunday’s spontaneous weigh-in… That is 3.3 pounds in one week!! Craziness! That is just so exciting!
Those are all the pinballs I have for you right now! I hope you enjoyed today’s randomness! :o)
