Greetings all. Spirits Up and Energy good.
Well to my surprise I had some positive results on the scale or was it a surprise? I guess I should not be surprised. So what did I do different?
OK, I will admit I went against my own rules and conducted a Mini Experiment. Hey I had to do something to break the stall. So what was involve with the Mini Experiment? First I decided to change................not!!!
Come on now, I said that I would stick to the Experiment and I am. So no side or mini experiments. Yes, another weak attempt at joke.........just shoot me.
OK y'all I am recovering quite well. Swelling is still there, but it is down a lot. Pain is still there, but is also getting better. Redness is steadily fading. I can't wait to get my own color back.
Sock it to ME:
Results thus far:
(Please let me know if I mess up on my math below, I might add or subtract incorrectly)
Day 1 = (0) 0.0 lbs
Day 2 = (-) 0.2 lbs = loss 0.2 lbs
Day 3 = (+) 2.0 lbs = gain 1.8 lbs
Day 4 = (-) 1.2 lbs = gain 0.6 lbs
Day 5 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 0.4 lbs (bonus time)
Day 6 = (-) 1.2 lbs = loss 1.6 lbs (it's only going to get better)
Day 7 = (-) 1.6 lbs = loss 3.2 lbs (twice as nice)
Day 8 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 4.2 lbs (I'll take it)
Day 9 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 5.2 lbs (just a pound? oh well)
Day 10 = (-) 0.6 lbs = loss 5.8 lbs (only half a lb? I give up lol)
Day 11 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 6.8 lbs (give me more)
Day 12 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 7.8 lbs (I said GIVE ME MORE)
Day 13 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 8.8 lbs (someone is not listening to me)
Day 14 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 9.8 lbs (OK mouth shut)
Day 15 = (-) 1.0 lbs = loss 10.8 lbs (I know, I know)
Day 16 = (-+) 0 lbs = loss 10.8 lbs ( just don't know)
Day 17 = (-) 0.2lbs = loss 11 lbs (good grief)
Day 18 = (-+) 0 lbs = loss 11 lbs (Think Positive)
Day 19 = (+) 1 lbs = loss 10 lbs (what a bummer)
Day 20 = (-+) 0 lbs = loss 10 lbs (OK)
Day 21 = (-) 1.2 lbs = loss 11.2 lbs (Confused? I am)
Day 22 = (-) 1.6 lbs = loss 12. 8 lbs (Huh?)
I can't explain. I am here just to report the truth as it happens. I follow the rules and let nature take its course. Am I happy? Yes, yes I am. Am I sad? Yes, yes I am.
What the HECK does that mean Dave? Happy and Sad at the same time. It does not make sense!!!
Yes it does make sense if your name is Dave. HA!!! Why Happy and Sad? Why Indeed!!! Well to explain: Where would I have been without the illness? That is why I am Sad. I am Happy because for now I am back on track. So there you are or should I say "HERE I AM".
BTW I am really liking the Smoke Turkey. They make it fresh at the store. It is lightly smoked. Not overwhelming like the ones pre-smoke you find during the holidays. I know they use chemicals as part of their smoking process. This Smoked Turkey has a nice light clean taste like homemade. I plan to buy another if available or maybe a regular raw turkey and I will try a hand in smoking it myself on the Q for a few hours and finish it in my trusty table top electric roaster.
Have a Healthy Day my Friends and Family. Stay the course, Victory is at hand. Battle On !!!
Today's Menu: Black Coffee, H20, Seltzer Water, Smoked Turkey with a little Mayo. (my new staple?)
