I realized I had not done a wrap up of September. It is still my goal to put together a multi-strand necklace with a single small bead for each tracking event, plus a larger bead for more significant events. One of these days I will get to the bead store to pick them out, but right now, I'm pretty darned busy. I got myself a bit overscheduled which has kept me off of the bus and in the car, which is not how I like it. Today is another car day, as I have errands to run after work.
So the whole sleep thing was a fail last night. Lots to do and a bit of worry thrown in - the contractor bid came in yesterday for the repair of the water damage, significantly higher than what I'd hoped. Right now I am dealing with fear and avoidance over the whole issue. What I should be doing instead of writing this entry is to sit down with a pencil and paper and figure out where I actually stand. I did succumb to the "while we are at it" scenario on a couple of issues and so I need to separate those from the initial bid. Plus, and this is what causes me such fear (of what? - it's not like the insurance company is going to cut me up into little bitty pieces and eat me), I need to go back to them and negotiate for more $$ on what they should be covering. I need to figure out where this specific fear is coming from.
So back to September. Here goes:
Beginning weight: 140.5
Ending weight: 137
Weight range for the month: 142.5 - 137
Logged my food for 25 days. Exercised for 14 days. Logged my weight for 21 days.
Total small beads for September: 60. I don't recall any "large bead" events or achievements in the month.
Boy, I didn't realize how much I'd let the exercise slide and it's getting to be a habit. While I did go for a nice ride last night, I did let my lunchtime workout go, as I was buried at work. The problem with this is that sliding becomes a habit and with the change of the seasons, my lunchtime workouts are apt to become my only weekday sessions. It's time to nip that one in the bud. I think today is yoga. It's time to hit the mat with some consistency.
And speaking of last night's ride - OMG the bugs! Gnats or nooseeums or whatever - big swarming clouds of the things. I forgot my sunglasses and it was miserable. I rode with my head sort of downish in order to keep the suckers out of my eyes, mostly. I don't know how many of them I inhaled or swallowed. Unpleasant to say the least. And I had a helluva time tracking the extra calories - Fitday.com has an exercise category for Running to the Outhouse, but nothing for the protein count of ingesting nastyass bugs. Ptooey!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Keep Count.
