Today was a day of rest and relaxation. I drank a lot more water, today because the heat really got to both Ed and me today - it is 98 inside the house - even fans don't make it comfortable. We will survive but it is not comfortable. Our trip to the stores yesterday yielded lots of fresh fruits and veggies - we both enjoyed them. We ate them but didn't feel like much in the way of HOT foods. Ed did make chicken drumsticks, corn on the cob and fresh broccoli for dinner - half of it still left. What really tasted good to both of us was the fresh fruits and berries we bought yesterday. I took a walk but didn't even push myself, just kind of meandered along so as not to do NOTHING. It has been a really lazy and relaxed day.
I actually lost some weight to register for my challenge that ended today. I lost 1.8 pounds from Monday and that meant I lost a total of 14 pounds in my 13 pounds in 13 weeks challenge that ended today. Total since January 1st is 33 pounds in 26 weeks. I am going to make the exception and record that on my ticker today because I am starting a new challenge for the next 13 weeks and like a reminder of where I started on the challenge in case I forget (I am prone to forgetfulness on occasion). My starting weight for this challenge will be 267 - total weight lost is now at 83.
I hope everyone has a FANTASTIC FRIDAY and continues to enjoy their long weekends.
