ADF Day 21: Already?

Wow.  I was backlogging a little bit this morning because I had written stuff I hadn’t posted yet.  As I was editing and posting the entries, I accidentally misnumbered a couple of the posts (which is why, if you’re sharp-eyed, you might notice the URLs of some of my posts don’t match their actual titles now).  I went back and fixed it, and only THEN clued in that today is Day 21! 

Check me out!  One 21 down!  And while I didn’t necessarily walk or journal every single day, I did faithfully follow my ADF plan.  My weigh-in today: 197.4.  No change from yesterday, but that’s awesome because yesterday was an Up Day. 🙂  And it was an Up Day in which I was rather bad, too; I was careful during the day, but I got very snacky in the evening. 

So in the end, my first 21-day run resulted in a total loss of 7.6 pounds.   Not half bad!  It might have been more had I not slid a bit here this past week.  But no matter… onward and downward!

ADF Day 20: Mad at Myself

Okay… first off, I want a pass.   I didn’t walk today, but IT WASN’T MY FAULT!  No, really, it wasn’t!

ADF Day 16: Camp, Revisited

Writing late again today… because I was too anxious to get out the door this morning to walk, much less write.

ADF Day 10: The trouble with Fridays…

Well, only SOME Fridays…   This weekend the kids are with their Dad, and like a lot of divorced mothers these weekends presents some mixed feelings.  On one hand, the time alone is nice, gives me a chance to attend to chores and such without the chaos of four school-aged kids fumbling around in the middle of them or distracting me with requests for snacks and attention.  On the other hand, nothing makes you miss requests for snacks and attention like not having them anymore.  Given the choice, no matter how complicated life might be with four children, I would infinitely prefer to have them with me than not.

ADF Day 4: 18 miles and counting…

I’m working on miles 19 and 20 right now.  Not bad. 🙂  I’m proud of myself.  I also made it through Down Day Number Two with considerable success, and this morning the scale says I weight 186.8.  That’s post-Down-Day, so I’m probably at more like 188, but still.  I’m down, and that’s what matters.

ADF Day 3: Remembering Again…

Wow…

I had forgotten a lot, apparently.  Yesterday I got up, walked, and ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast.  By 10:00 a.m., the nutrition lull smacked me full-on and I was shaking too hard to write properly.  Such a quirky thing that the effects of not eating really don’t manifest for real until the day AFTER you fast, but there you go.  This is all just part of Hell Week, as I recall, so I’m not too worried.  I went out for lunch as planned and was fine after that.
