So glad I’ve made it through half the week now!

Exercise:

Dennis and I got an early start on a 6.28km run this morning. I rolled before I went as I have super tight hamstrings right now. I think it helped a bit as this wasn’t my best run, but not my worst either.

I also got a workout in this evening. Yes another BeFitDavis one. This was a lower body full of one legged lunges, squats, deadlifts and split jumps. All done with ten pound weights in each hand and three sets separated by jogging. It was a great, quick workout that I will probably feel tomorrow.

I am making myself sit on the floor with my legs straight out hoping it will help stretch out my hamstrings!

Teaching:

I felt rushed most of the morning because I was late coming back from my run. I was too busy arguing over hydration packs with Dennis.

Thankfully I had put the work up before I went. I got all the work checked, learned how to use Microsoft Teams, had a practice call with a colleague and then another with a willing student, got 3/4 of the work ready for next week and then checked all the submitted work again. I’ll call that a productive day:)

Reading:

I’ve started two books, but you’ll have to wait to hear about them until I’m done.

Knitting:

I finished the arm bands today and am making steady progress on the body. I can now just knit until it’s the length I like or until I’m going to run out of yarn. I am really hoping to be done by Sunday night!

I have also been making myself do a colour in my cross stitch each day after work before I start knitting. It probably won’t show, but I know I’m making slow progress- lots more than in the past eleven years!

Eating:

I decided not to have a treat on Wednesday weigh in day as it seems like I usually have a treat on Fridays at the teacher meet up. That makes two treats a week which doesn’t seem like a good idea for me when I’m trying to actively lose weight. I am down this week and heading in the right direction, so it’s a happy day! Today I’ve had:

Mini kind bar, European wiener, veggies with hummus and guacamole, fish filets, half an apple with peanut butter.

Can you tell I didn’t have the chance to make my food plan this morning?🤣

Well I’m going back to knitting and listening to my audiobook.

Have fun!

  1. You got lots accomplished today, and glad to hear the scale is behaving properly! I am right at the spot in mine that doesn’t move well…it is over 30 years old, so I shouldn’t be surprised. I’m making progress, probably more inches than weight, but a little. I would say that the intermittent fasting is working. I have tried to do better with eating, and am being somewhat successful, but I think the main difference right now is the 14-16 hours between supper and breakfast. I took a picture on Day 1 so will take another in the same pants on Day 28 and see if there really is a difference. 😜

    1. Oh that’s great that you’re having success and a picture is a good idea! I definitely have a few numbers that I get stuck at and at very tough to get past. I’m just really trying to eat less as I think I already ate pretty healthily. I am definitely starting to feel better so that’s good! Here’s hoping we both get to our goals🤛🏻

      1. After I read about it, I realized that I had almost been doing that 6 years ago. Now I just want to shed this menopause weight gain, asap, and get back to my regular self.🙂

      2. That’s how I’m feeling too- I just want this weight gone so I can go back to where I feel amazing! I was listening to a podcast the other day that says the same diets keep going around under new names

  2. I had a meeting with my boss and we are looking toward the end of the school year and there is soooo much that needs to be done and we haven’t been given directive from the superintendent or governor on how to do it. It is going to be a craptastic month.

    1. Yup we are just getting into the busy administrative time here too. We’ve had some scandal today over class assignments!🙄

      1. Yes you have to be part of the union to be a teacher here. It is very difficult as there are three unions that work in each school along with the school district- makes every day interesting🙄
