My first (partial) week of beer was okay. I had two beers on two different days, taking up my allowance of four from 1/1 to 1/4.
This week is not so good. I’m allowed seven per week. I’ve already had six. I don’t get another allotment until Sunday. Bummer.
We had some bitter cold weather on Monday and Tuesday. The forecasted snow fizzled, but the cold was real. The Monday morning bike commute was done at about 3F. Monday afternoon was about the same. Tuesday morning was a “chilly” -1F. There was a bit of a warming trend during the day, so the afternoon commute was a balmy 15F.
I had a volleyball team captain meeting to attend after work on Tuesday. I rode there, of course. It surprised the others – and they know me.
Today’s morning commute was about 15F, but the afternoon commute was above freezing. It felt like shorts and t-shirt weather!
The new volleyball season is about to begin. I’m angry at myself for gaining weight last year, but then I realize that I still ride a bike (slowly) and play volleyball (poorly). Actually, my volleyball league is full of older, fatter people. Hmmm….
The holidays are over. Work is ramping up. I stayed late today to get some projects finished. I haven’t been this busy and productive at a job in a long time. I love feeling productive again.
So, I’ve been busy and happy.
Also, this job is a contract job. It’s temporary. It was originally supposed to end by April 1st. I think that’s now been changed to May 1st. There’s also a chance of a six-month extension after that. We’ll see.
My weight has been fluctuating right around 255 since the beginning of the year. I am weighing every day again, but I’m not seeing any movement in either direction.
It’s early. I need to keep an eye on the longer-term trends. I’ll average weekly once I have more data to work with.
It pisses me off that I still need to lose 80 pounds.
One thought on “Updates”
I loved to read “I am busy and happy”. I am so glad you are happy! I hope your job assignment gets extended. I am amazed that you are biking in this weather. They closed our law firm last Monday when it was -16, but I did walk my ten blocks on Tuesday when it was -10. It took me about a half hour to get dressed, and I was so stuffed full of layers I could hardly move! This is not a winter for the weak, that’s for sure. Take good care!
