Car Drive GIF by Farmer Wants A Wife

 

I have been in a mood for the past month or so mostly brought on by the perpetual heatwave. BUT it has finally started to be a livable temperature outside and life is slowing down a bit. So time to refocus.

The house and garden need some love. I need to make progress on my paintings. I have books to read.  I have weight to lose.

 

My goal for this challenge is to lose 5lbs, get back to doing house work and painting.

 

 

- Track calories 5 days per week

- Go on a walk per day

- Do a productive thing per day

- Work on painting once per week

 

During this challenge I have my last camping trip of the year, Mud Girl obstacle run and I will finally be going back into the office.

Stealing @Yasha92s icon idea too because I love it ❤️ 

 

Productive thing: I cleared up my work desk to try and help make a more inviting work space.

Hahaha I would die. I have no clue what we are doing weather wise right now. Yesterday was a summer day with a wicked storm at night that warranted a "Tornado warning". So that was fun. There was a thunder that lasted a whole 30 seconds!

That might still be a little ways off but I did notice its a bit darker in the mornings now.

Isn't the term for this "tornado season"

That sounds more like it.

Last night we ended up going over to Mr.Rs coworker/friends house so they could work on a proposal of sorts for their work. It was very impromptu and ruined my evening plans for enchiladas 😑It was okay but kind of boring because they only just moved into their house so they only have the 1 area set up for guests.... so the wives had to sit around while they worked on the document.  I was going to suggest we go for a walk but it was downpouring and thundering and quite frankly I am not that hardcore. I also ate too much food but I tracked it to the best of my abilities.

 

Tonight I have riding then after I will go do some groceries. Groceries + putting them away is my something productive today. 

 

 

@Mr_Willes Magic, patience and spacebar. Though the very last one is off by 0.5mm for some reason. It was bugging me and now maybe it will bug you too :)

My bubbles don’t look great on mobile 🥺

 

 Todays food is tracked (I even managed to be in a deficit today) and I got my walk in because Daisy was in the very farthest spot of the 40ac field 😂 I also got groceries and put them away. Go me! 
 

I have a permanent retainer behind my teeth and it’s come unglued on one side and it’s driving me nuts. It feels like there’s a seed behind it but I think it’s just more glue. I feel I should have a dentist appointment coming up soon.

They’re alright if you turn it landscape.

Hey Frens, I already am killing this productivity thing. Today I made an appointment with the orthodontist to get my wire fixed and I called in my prescription refill.. which luckily I did because they need to resend it to my doctor for more refills and they are actually open today. I am about to leave for my appointment 2hrs early because all the highways around me are shut down because of some accident and my boss just drove through it and he said leave extra early. 😑 Nothing I love more than chaotic traffic! If I get there early by some chance I will just go for a walk I think and I will bring a book. 

 

Tonight I will have some free time because dinner is easy (burgers and corn) and I don't have riding.. So I might get my pickled jalapenos started and I could probably get some painting progress! Which would be great... I just don't feel like it :P but hopefully once I start I will.

Getting my retainer fixed went well and the lady even squeezed my teeth together before gluing it so hopefully that will help put everything back as it was. The orthodontist said everything still looks good. So that is a plus. Driving there sucked but driving home was a breeze. I did manage to go for a little walk while I was there as well :)

You using fitbit app or something for tracking? I met a dietician and she has it broken down by servings so I've been measuring things out days ahead of time and the counting is all taken care of.

I am tracking in MyFitnessPal. I generally eat the same things so its not too hard. And I actually find it easy to do once I am doing it. I just hate doing it because then that means I can't randomly just eat my snacks without thinking about whether it fits for that day. I will probably have to do more measuring out ahead of time once I am back in the office though and don't have my kitchen available to me. That bums me out lol I have been trying not to think of that. I have become very used to having my kitchen a floor above me :P

Right now I am just trying to get into tracking again so I am not too fussed if I eat over my "weight loss calories". Same with walking... I am not too worried how far I go as long as I get out there. Super back to the basics and just working on building the habits.

So you know when you see someone stub their toe or something and you reflexively curl your own toes up in a combination of sympathy and horror? Well, today I learned I can do that with my teeth......
