Day 299: It's FALL, Y'all!

Sunday, October 25, 2020

It is gloomy and chilly out today - looks like fall arrived all at once!

We had friends over last night for dinner, which was nice...though it got really chilly! We broke in our new firepit thing...I don't know what it's called, but it's got a "chimney" feature that works really well, funnels the smoke up so you hardly get any blown at you. And it throws a lot of heat out! It was really nice to sit around it last night. Nice to know that maybe we won't have to stop socializing entirely over the winter - we can cozy up around the fire with blankets.


I did drink too much wine and port, of course, so I did a 5-mile walk this morning, hopefully that helped a bit.


Yesterday was weigh-in day, and sadly, I was exactly level. Though I can't complain too much - after pigging out Thursday night, I was afraid I'd be up, so level is good. But now I only have 4 weeks left to lose 3 more lbs (in order to make my '15 lbs by Thanksgiving' goal), which is pretty tight, don't know if I'll make it. But it's all good - I'm really feeling the difference at 12 lbs at this point.


Paul has lost over 40 lbs, have I mentioned that??? He's been working on it since February (I started at the end of May). He really looks different. Yesterday he cleaned out his closet - cleared out all the stuff that doesn't fit, plus he got rid of most of his work stuff since he's retiring at the end of the year. He kept a couple things, in case of weddings or whatever, but basically now his half of our walk-in closet really puts me to shame, looks pretty empty.


Speaking of Paul, poor guy has to get another colonoscopy tomorrow...this will be his third one, I want to say. They've found polyps in the past so we have to stay on top of it. Thankfully I haven't had to do one yet - my doc let me do a stool sample test and since that came out fine, I didn't have to go through the whole colonoscopy. Not pleasant....he has to fast all day today, then get up at like 3am to start drinking the stuff that flushes you out (I'm dropping him at the appt at like 7am tomorrow). It'll be nice to have it over with.


Well, I need to go jump in the shower, and then I don't plan to do much today except watch football. Happy Sunday!
