    June Week 2 - Tues, 6/8

    Track: No
    Calories: Over
    Exercise: None

    I have such a fog at times, forgetting what I’m doing or saying, even if the thought I had was in my brain just seconds before. It frustrates me. I’m tired a lot. I need to find motivation to start exercising again.

    Try living in an area where the average summer high in June is 85-90, with 50-100% humidity. That’s my reality, every day of the week, in Charlotte, NC. My hometown in Georgia is worse - it’s a valley but acts like a bowl, and keeps all the heat and moisture inside.

    Tuesday weigh-in

    CW: 186.5

    Was sure after all the water I drank yesterday that I'd have gained weight. Another scorcher today (though what we call a scorcher in Nova Scotia is not what you'd call a hot day in the southern USA!

    I lived in Clemson, SC for 4 years in the late 80s. When I first arrived, in mid August, I couldn't even walk across campus without having to sit down and rest, panting, because of the heat and humidity! The (air conditioned) gym became my friend!

    When my pinto mare gets out (she often does) she comes up and works the back door, sometimes succeeding in getting it open by turning the knob with her teeth. I have to leap out of bed and give her a carrot and put her back in the field (she pops over the fence to mow down the lawn) This really gets me up and moving! Gets the dogs up and moving too! That's probably not what you meant though.

    Exercise: yes- walking for 1 hrs

    I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm still not moving the scale. I'm drinking lots of water, making better food choices, and doing my walking daily. Just frustrating!

    Are you having one of those dreaded plateaus? I've read somewhere that they're inevitable, that our bodies are just shifting gears (or something like that). Hang in there! I hope it turns around soon for you and the weight starts coming off again. There are dozens of websites out there with conflicting information about what to do when this happens so that's not really very helpful! But I'd start doing something, anything, different (though that's probably because I'm impatient and will become totally stressed out over a plateau and 3 days with no change in my weight is a disaster in my little world). Best of luck!

    Yes! Disaster is a good word for it. I'm not sure if it's a plateau or what. It's been going on for like 6 months. It's beyond frustrating. I walk every day. But think I will add Leslie Sansone walking videos again and add more strength training.

    June Week 2 - Thurs, 6/10

    Happy 100th birthday to the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

    Track: Yes
    Calories: About on point? I actually made a healthy lunch - rotini and sauce mixed some leftover pulled chicken I found at work. It was actually good. I made something and didn’t buy it pre-made!
    Exercise: An hour of laundry and packing

    My mood has been up and down the last couple weeks. It’s down this week. I just feel frustrated at my job, that my work and effort aren’t recognised. I’m not asking for a “good job” everyday. But hearing a new coworker praised at a staff meeting for getting his MLS while I get an obligatory “eh, good for you” for pursuing the same degree (maintaining a 4.0 GPA, mind you) irked me. Yeah, I don’t graduate till next year, but I’ve been going to school part-time and working (part-time only now because of my pandemic job loss) isn’t easy. It’s a lot of money, time, blood, and tears. Oh, and so many late nights.

    By the way, an MLS is a Master of Library Science degree. I apologise I did not clarify that earlier.
