TUESDAY CHECK IN
No official weight for another 3 weeks. I have begun at the gym. Still not completed one week of exercise as planned but getting closer, still negative ketosis and some very bad eating this last week. Mixed results is the best I can say but I feel good about life in general.
Today I was tired out. I woke at 6 am just in time to farewell our son & his partner as they head off on their journey South. Today they have at least 8 hours driving plus a stop in Rotorua to see our middle son. They plan to stay at a campground near Wellington tonight and will catch the Inter Islander Ferry at 9 am tomorrow then another 5 or so hours driving to their home. It was lovely to see them even if a very brief visit. We chatted together last night, the only time I've had with them.
I then went back to bed and slept off and on until nearly 2pm. Thank-goodness for that luxury as I now feel more like myself. Yesterday my eating was off plan big time, especially as I became more and more tired last night. Today I have only had one meal so far, scrambled eggs with parsley herb. Soon I will have yoghurt and later ground beef with pumpkin. I might go out for a walk because I need to go to bed early and sleep so that I can think clearly as we pack what we need for the next 7 weeks at Mum's. It's not a big deal if I forget anything because we will be back at least once a week to check things and mow lawns.
The weather has been reasonably clear today after a night of very heavy rain. I hope that's it, because I have heaps of washing and no drier, just a clothes horse inside which takes days if the air is damp. I hate wet washing hanging around but cannot justify buying a drier right now. Another load waiting to be hung out so I must go.
Blessings and best wishes for the next Healthy Challenge Week
