So, on Mon. I finally got my s@#& together and got back on track. After gaining about 7 lbs over the past couple of months, having heel pain that prevents me from walking much, hip pain that prevents me from sleeping much, and a grumpy attitude from the above. Yes, I still have the heel pain and hip pain. Hopefully I will lose some wt fairly quickly and relieve some of it. That's the plan anyway.
I need to get my recumbant bike upstairs. My daughter and grand-daughter will be moving up from FL. next month and taking over the downstairs apt. so i have to find a new place to keep it. They were here for the summer and since she and I don't keep the same hours I found I did not go downstairs to use it while they lived there so as not to disturb them. I was using it daily before then since it does not hurt my heel to peddle.
I'm currently using dumbells and exercising my arms. I feel it more in my left arm, since I'm right handed and stronger on that side. Interestingly, today's session was very tiring. I did the same, more or less, as the past two days but it was MUCH harder to finish. I must be working the muscles well then. Hopefully i can add a set next week.

HUMPH. Well, after not paying much attention to what I've been putting into my body for a while, I have gained a few pounds. Big surprise. However, I am now back to paying attention. Attempting to eat green, so to speak. Imagine my depression when I stood on the scale and discovered that I'd GAINED two more pounds!!. WHA??? I'd cut out adding salt, most sugar (ok, I still need that .25-.5 tsp in my coffee). and have been paying attention to portion sizes. So, just where is the wt. coming from??? I do not know. I do not like. The only thing I know to do is keep on plugging at it. But geeeez.

Well, I do believe my luck has run out. I now have a cold. Sore throat, stuffy nose, cough. I'm not truly miserble, but it does make me VERY tired. Two hours after getting up I was ready to go back to bed. I will lneed to lie down later before I have go to work (3-11)

Well, curtesy of a weekend where I really did not pay any attention to what I was eating nor did I do my exercise, there is no wt loss to record. Doesn't mean it isn't there, just not this morning.
I had an interesting experience fri. nite/sat. When I got home from work, got ready for bed stood on the scale. It read...259. (for me WHOO HOO~) When I got up in the morning, post pee (this removes any fluid built up in the bladder, nothing eaten or fluids taken in yet, the scale should say the same or less........ read.......261. WHAT???? Where did that 2 lbs come from???!! By what nasty form of magic do pounds reprduce themselves??? So not fair

During this past years wt loss journey, I have had what I call "sneek peeks" of lower scale numbers. (I'm one of those that weigh daily. Keeps it from sneeking up on me if I screw up) They usually come early in the morning, Post pee, before coffee. Those slightly lower numbers than previously seen. The Promised Land. I had one of those yesterday. Two pounds lower than todays "official weigh day number" put onto the tracker. Rather than be dissappointed that I could not put that lower number on the tracker, I'm hopeful that I will not only get there, but will soon pass it and move on to the next "milestone" of a new set of numbers below the current. (passing the zero's is important). There are always fluctuations. Water gain, muscle gain, fat loss, even how you stand on the scale can make a difference. So when that scale goes up a couple of pounds, don't dispair. If you continue the good of what you're doing-your exercise, your mindful eating-you WILL get where you want to be even if it's not as quickly as you want.
