It sounds like you had a great first week, congrats! Don't worry too much about missing the gym, you were absolutely right to concentrate on getting over your cold and if it is respiratory too exercise can do more harm than good. Well done on the 2 lbs loss and also the improvement to your resting heart rate, that's a great sign of improvement to general fitness.

I felt like this with Catcher in the Rye. I can see how Caulfield might be a revelation to a teenager but when you read it as an adult he is just a whiny little bitch. 

I didn't understand what my mom was telling me when she told me about that book. When I was a teen I read it and I didn't really like Caulfield.  Looking back, I still don't.

 

Bummer about the sickness. I just recently heard about 'Con Crud'.  Hope you get better soon.

Turned out the flu symptoms that didn't want to go away were the pre-cursor to a kidney stone. That was an unpleasant surprise earlier this week. Feeling much better now. Still sore, but no more sharp stabby pain. Hopefully, this means I can get back to my normal self. While still no gym, I have been really good on the diet and have dropped 27 pounds now over the last 8.5 weeks. 7 of that in the last 10 days and all by eating healthy.

MY SIDE QUEST (3/10 done) (0/2 BBC) (0/1 eBook)

  • Finished Insurgent by Veronica Roth (liked it)
  • Read more of One For the Money by Janet Evanovich via Kindle at 64% (I am not enjoying this book at all)
  • I treid Possession by AS Byatt which is on the BBC List, but it was something you need to be in the mood for so I took it back to the library.
  • I'm halfway through Allegiant by Veronica Roth (it is making me like the whole series more so far.)
  • "If sack and sugar be a fault, god help the wicked. If to be old and merry be a sin, then many an old host I know is damned. If to be fat, to be hated then the Pharoh's lean kine are to be loved." I have Falstaff's speech about a quarter memorized so far.

End of the week recap:

  • The cold/flu that I thought I picked up after Emerald City Comicon was actually a precursor to a kidney stone. Since I have gotten past that, I am feeling better in almost every way
  • I didn't make it to the gym
  • Met sleep goal on 5/7 days, but still  got plenty of sleep
  • I have lost 4 more pounds this week bringing my grand total to 27 pounds lost.
  • While my calories seem low, I am eating a lot. It is just low calories and spread out. I am getting enough of everything and am not hungry nor having cravings.

I've seen Middlemarch so I'm not overly enthused to read it, but it is on the list.

 

As someone who just recently fell madly in love with The Count of Monte Cristo, may I say, I love your screen name!  :encouragement:

Funny enough, I had my wisdom teeth out yesterday. I'm sore, but not in pain. The kidney stone pain went away for a few days before this. I just have a headache and want to sleep a lot. I didn't know that I'm not supposed to work out for a week after having them out so yet another week will go by without working out. However, I am sticking to my diet so I'm still losing and staying on track. I lost another pound so I'm down 28 pounds in 9.5 weeks or as I like to think of it: I'm halfway to my halfway pount. ;) Now back to the couch to ice my face and maybe another nap.
