Bad week. Good week. Bad parts. Good parts.
Here's my update for the Hot 100 Challenge:
Weight: as of Tuesday weighed 204.4 but then the scale's battery quit working.
Exercise: 30 minutes of exercycling, 55 min exercising, and a LOT of farm/house chores.
Writing: No time at all.
Seriously, no time to write (does doing our Rudolph's kids letters count?) or much time to exercycle. Between emergencies, arguments, farm chores, a wind storm that knocked over a chicken coop and broke part of a fence, skittish goats, laundry, stressing about the upcoming family reunion, cooking and baking, cleaning, figuring out how to pay next month's bills, doing our Christmas Rudolph's Kids letters, and so forth... literally, no time. I barely slept at night, averaging 2-3 hours a night, and certainly no time for naps during the day.
Eating: I didn't eat enough. Instead of pigging out on chocolate and peanut butter, like I wanted to, I just didn't eat. Couldn't make myself, except a little bit here and there, like a raspberry and protein powder smoothie. Or a yogurt for dinner.
I have an opportunity to go to a health and fitness blogger conference in Boulder next year, and thought I'd ask your input. What topic would you be interested in attending a session on, that has to do with health, fitness, and weight loss as it relates to writing and blogging? Like ... what do you go to a diet-blog to read about? What they eat? Recipes? How they exercise? Dealing with cravings and binges? Life with kids, husbands, animals, schoolwork, etc.?
Tomorrow we drop off the goat at the breeders again, hoping the week-long date will results in goat-babies in 5 months! Then the Kid and I will head on into town. Vitamin Cottage (yogurt, rice protein, gluten-free bread and supplements). Bank. Library. On the way back home, we'll stop to pick up a small bale of hay, and some firewood.
Starting tomorrow (Friday), I'm doing a daily SUPPORT GROUP TIME: Come here every day to let us all know how you're feeling and doing that day. Looking forward to it! (Thanks Scuttleboose!)
Puzzling over a title - As I worked on my "instant meals" / "healthy homemade MREs" book this week, I realized I am still very unsure as to what title to use. The companion blog i...
