Feels so good to be back to my pre-vacation weight! Will it last? Who knows. Next week is US Thanksgiving, so I highly doubt my food intake will be ideal (although I won't be indulging until Thursday night, so maybe my next weigh in will still be pretty).Mindset - I normally don't write anything about this in my posts, but I'm trying to be more authentic with others, and I think it's important to remind everyone that no one truly is how they appear online (and sometimes even in person). I've been struggling quite a bit this week with feelings of isolation and hopelessness. Living alone during a pandemic has been both a blessing and a curse. And while I am most definitely introverted, I still require social validation - I just don't gain energy from social interactions. Some weeks, I've managed to gain enough socializing from my online networks and my small group of friends at the gym. But others... others I want to bake myself a million cookies and host a pity party for one.
The bloat from the past week and a half has not been helping me. While I understand why it was there and that it was temporary, seeing the numbers on the scale was still demoralizing. The disconnect between the scientific brain and the emotional brain will never fail to confound me. Why couldn't I just whoosh the whole bloat off in a day? Why couldn't my body just get right back to where it was when I hopped back into my routine?Ooof, that turned out longer than I was planning - let's just move on, shall we?

I did my 5k walk today and the temp was in the mid 60’s. Perfect. So I’m actually close enough to walk to a nearby cemetery, which I included photos of. The first photo is just the entrance to the cemetery, then I saw a cool old tombstone. But the most interesting was dear old Chauncey Garfield. So as I walked I had 3 theories go through my mind — 1. He’s buried somewhere else, 2. They never filled in the year he died on the tombstone, or 3. .... he’s still alive which would make him 155 years old!!
