I had a streak of three days in bed by 10 am.
I am on a roll with my yard work. I think it is because I have just a few months to enjoy it living here in Maine.
Most of the time it is too cold for me to go out there without my layers.
I am always cold and poor DH is always hot . Yesterday I had on long sleeves-NO SWEAT and I was the one digging and hauling dirt.
DH took a little walk round the block he comes back soaked with sweat, he is trying to get back to a faster pace.
I am a fast walker.
I am still at exactly the same weight since day 1 of my one month challenge about to end on Wednesday and NEVER again will I attempt a weight loss challenge Any other kind of challenge will be NO PROBLEM but this weight loss weighing thing just has me beaten by now.
I encourage my DH to use the scale and he drops pounds fairly easily and he also adds them off and on too. I encourage him JUST in Case the scale is at fault but it works for him -it will not cooperate for me though.
I do get SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! frustrated with this whole thing.
I am only frustrated because at this time I am in 2 small challenges everyone else opted for a 10 pound loss I agreed to five and realistically with ALL this exercise I thought I would get down by 2.
OH no! No way!.
My adipose tissue clings to my curves better than Saran Wrap.
My cutaneous layer is still doing better than said wrap, STILL NO WRINKLES but I see them coming soon. Even faster with the face frowning looking down at the scale too often. (once a month usually ) Just for the challenges more often.
I am reasoning just maybe my adipose is keeping them at bay. It has to be useful for something.
It is useful for pricking so I can know my Blood sugar is in the right place.
I guess I have answered my own frustration, my adipose never complains about the blood letting and stopping on cue, apparently my Cutaneous and Adipose are in sync.
If only the scale and I would be in sync, it would be excellent.
Now I have vented.
I feel better I am going out to do more work, AFTER I get some stuff out of the house for the dump or goodwill.
Yesterdays leftover's are waiting to ZAP in the microwave. Almost instant gratification.
THE REST OF THE STORY!! As soon as I wrote this the phone rang and my walking buddy wanted to go to he gardens. I said YES !,
Our other walking buddies are out of town so she had no walking partner. I invited her over for lunch with our leftovers from our Spark lunch yesterday. She was delighted, she asked for the recipes and I already had them printed. We went to the gardens I walked over 6,000 steps and we came home.
DH and I had dinner and then the yard work was done for 2 hours of raking and loading the truck up to go to the dump.
ALAS!! OH WOE IS ME!! I have not begun the de-cluttering process yet. I am off to bed.
Tomorrow is another day, this one proved to be EXCELLENT and it made DH and my friend happy, so all is right in my world---EXCEPT THE DREADED SCALE !
Pat in Maine.
SORRY, I forgot to mention my plateau is over a year long. I feel certain I am in maintenance for my body so I will just concentrate on healthy.
Just no more scale challenges for this old lady.
