We’ve had rain the past few days, although I believe the sky is presently clearing. On the upside, this means I won’t have to water the gardens for a couple of days. I still haven’t set up all the automatic sprinklers yet. I’ve been sneaking by.
The rain did put a kink in dinner last night. Giving our kitchen is entirely outdoors due to our remodel (now in Week 3), yesterday’s downpour was a bit of a setback. In fact, I had to pack up the entire outdoor kitchen and put it in temporary storage in the garage.
There would be no barbeque or Coleman stove cooking for me last night. Oh no. I am not that hardcore.
Instead, there was the trip to the pizza parlor (only restaurant in the tiny town in which I reside), resulting in a take-out pineapple pizza (my favorite topping). In retrospect, this was a mistake. I should have just made do with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches whipped together on the living room floor. Less calories.
Hindsight is always 20:20.
I have been on my best behavior since my doctor told me to lose weight. I have gone jogging the past four days, including during yesterday’s utter downpour (only a couple of miles each day).
[I would have jogged today, but the fire department had my route closed due to the extraction of a dead body from the river near my jogging road (not joking). Very sad. Drowning victim. Today was not the day I wanted to see a dead body for the first time...]
I have even busted out sit-ups, pathetic push-ups (I mean VERY pathetic), and some yoga poses on my office floor. I have not binged on junk food, candy or even cocktails. I have been a good little healthy dieter.
And still I haven’t lost weight.
Shoot me now.
Alas, no baking for me tonight. …Likely not for a while yet.
Tonight is grilled veggie kebabs and fresh corn, drizzly weather and all.
