This morning was scale check-in and it was unremarkable. Yesterday was my 100 day streak of logging food on Lose it! I think I may celebrate by taking a day off. It's been a helpful app for me, and I've lost 15 pounds since using it consistently. But I'm not done. I'm at 227. 5 and I am aiming for 225 for the end of the month. And then for October, I'm aiming for 218. I'm not mentally caught up to being 227 yet, but if I think about it too much, then I don't do the work. This is true for everything in my life. If I think about it too much, I don't do the work. Knowing this, I just gotta get up and get going.
This was a good week! Everything I was looking forward to happened, and then some. I don't think I could ask for more.
My nephew's marching band festival was great! His band was not the best, but it was also the youngest. Most of the kids in that band are 7th graders, so they're not at the same level as high school bands yet. I'm really proud of him.
Mom and I did buy a lot of nice tops for the fall, and the best part is it all mixes and matches with all my pants so I have countless outfits but not a stuffed closet. It was really fun to take a whole afternoon and just go shopping like we used to. Dad is getting used to being more independent. That's a whole journey too.
We watched Only Murders and I loved this week's episode and am completely stumped. It could be anyone!
The house is cleaner, and I'll be doing more cleaning today. Mom and I are deep cleaning mode, which is weirdly fun. It's different than regular cleaning, so it doesn't feel like drudgery.
