ADF Day 6: Paying the Hard Way

Oof.  This morning’s weigh-in was not good.  193.2, if you can believe that.  I actually gained.

All of the “You’ll Screw Up Your Metabolism” naysayers will undoubtedly love that, but the truth is that the weight gain has a fairly simple explanation:  I had the kids at home, I was eager to get out and have fun with them, and as a result I celebrated the weekend in grand style.   (more…)

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.

ADF Hardcore, Day 8: One Week Down!

I woke up this morning and weighed myself.  169.2.  I didn’t check the Wii Fit because there wasn’t time; I had to get to work.  But still… 169.2 is definitely below the 170 mark, so I’ll take it.

Money, Day 9: Luke’s Birthday

Well, I did pretty well.  Luke’s birthday gifts cost me about $40, and included a little soccer set, two wooden puzzles, two new books, a game, and toy train.   I’m very pleased by this, because that really was a pretty conservative birthday for ME, spendingwise, and yet Luke was very happy with what he got.   At three, of course, he doesn’t exactly have aspirations of Nintendo DSes and Wii games or anything, which definitely makes the going there much easier.. But in the past this wouldn’t have mattered that much to me.  This actually gave me a chance to examine how I handle gift-buying, too, which was sort of educational.

Bed, check.  Kitchen, check.  So far, so good.

I’m thinking a lot about changes today.
