It’s Friday, again.

Methinks I’m going to have to change my check-in date to Friday. Wednesday comes and goes without me thinking of it.

Since my last missive, I’ve been back to the Dr., now have a boot, and an appointment with an Orthopedist on Tuesday. The foot is still being obstinate.

How typical.

The boot itself is pretty slick – lots of parts, you can pump it up to make it properly snug, and it really does fit well – but it’s not the most comfortable thing in the world… I kinda feel like a lopsided Herman Munster trying to get from Point A to Point B. If I had my druthers, I’d be barefoot most of the time.

The nurse who did the fitting was fun. I asked her if she had something thigh-high in red leather and without missing a beat replied, “To match the rest of your outfits?” She was fun.

So… obviously, no gym.

It hasn’t stopped me from dropping weight, though. I weighed in this morning at 224.4 pounds. This quick weight loss is definitely not sustainable, but I am eating well, eating 3 good meals a day, not snacking, and eating my popsicles for dessert.

Most days I’m coming in slightly under/over my 1840 kcal/day, but I’m not depriving myself. I eat Fage 5% whole milk yogurt for breakfast with a banana, lunch is a sandwich with chips or leftovers from the previous night’s dinner, and dinner is a nicely-balanced meal.

Victor has been cooking all week because I’m a gimp – and it has been fantastic! Last night was a marinated pork tenderloin with roasted potatoes and broccoli – cooked in the marinade. Lunch was a sandwich of the leftover pork on a Dutch Crunch roll with some Kettle Chips. I do weigh these things out and 56 grams of Kettle Chips is a LOT!

We’ve also had butternut squash ravioli in a homemade pesto sauce, sausage, potatoes, peppers, and onions on homemade rolls, shepherd’s pie – made the right way with ground lamb, breaded pork chops and baked potatoes… Victor is a really, really good cook!

We ain’t starving and my stomach is smiling!

And the gym is pretty much on hiatus until after the first of the new year…

See ya Friday – if not before…
