monday--rob enters Onederland. as for me--not so much
Monday, October 23, 2017
good morning! Friday at his weigh in, rob was below 200--he was so happy and I am very happy for him. this means he has lost about 40 pounds since early july.
this morning I got on the scale and the very slight weight loss I had registered for last month was gone. so I have some things to think about.
first off--we ate out yesterday--something we almost never do anymore. and at a place that is kind of notorious. I tried to be very careful, and make what were the best menu choices I could, but I suspect I ate a lot of preservatives and junk so I am going to be extra careful this week and check again on Friday.
but this may mean my carb intake has gone too high. first up--I have been eating more "atkins" brand foods, so I will cut them back to the very low levels I was eating in induction. drop back on the fruit a little bit and see what happens. if I have to I can go all the way back to induction and start over again. I haven't been counting carbs as carefully--but honestly don't think I had gone off the rails so it may just be this is too high of a level for me. at any rate my weight loss moves along at a stuttering crawl anyway--but I need to pay attention. sigh.
in happy news--we got the barn roof done! at least the half that was leaking badly--now its going to be rainy, so we will be able to tell if we did any good or not. I spent most of Saturday up on the roof. then yesterday we painted the ceiling panels--we are going to affix the 2 inch thick Styrofoam insulation to the trusses with screws. I didn't want a vast sea of pink over my head, so we painted them white. got them dry enough to store in the barn before it began raining. but I have to say--painting 20 panels that are 4x8 feet on the ground on a breezy fall day is an exercise in tolerance! I have a little grass/leaf/bug debris in the paint job, but when it's 10 feet over my head I won't notice it--and if i do, it will be a reminder of the day we did the work, so that's okay. we will put a vapor barrier up first and then install the styro, and we could even roll bats of insulation above them, but I hope we don't have to.
finished my second week of bowl throwing by trimming a lot of bowls. the time went pretty well--my skill level was better at the end of it. and I have a lot of bowls now. I think this week I will go back to cylinders and work on covered containers, or bottles--haven't decided which yet.
have a great day!
