“I don’t like online school, when is it over?” ~ Unnamed children in my household.
Does that sound familiar? The COVID-19 pandemic continues to play with our kid’s education like a yo-yo spinning up and down between in-person and online school. Everyone in our house was done. We were ready to return to the real life classroom, hopefully for good.
I can’t even come up with a decent excuse for why my subscribers were not getting the latest posts. I have simply neglected the blog and keeping things running properly. Hey it’s better than neglecting the kids. Am I right?
So this is me doing a quick test to see if it’s working again.
One of the biggest outcomes of my summer of 2018 is a big change in weight. People who don’t know my story are leaning towards me having some kind of sickness, rather than I am just working my ass of to be skinny.
I get why. I have not been working out. I feel like I am shrinking in terms of muscle and I keep joking, I’m not Christian Bale from The Machinist.
Also, it was not a gradual weight loss. I picked up a Fit Bit in April and really got into the idea of getting fit. I walked to work a few times and was pushing 11-12K steps a day. I lost 11 lbs. in a few months.
Then the July thing hit. From July 4 to the end of the month, I lost another 20 lbs. That was from the water pills, the tiny food intake and pretty much not moving for most of my stay in the hospital.
All the water weight was gone. I never really saw it. But others were shocked. I looked much skinnier and actually seemed taller than the usual 6’5.
Uh this is your captain speaking. We are currently cruising the friendly skies at 35,00 feet, little turbulence and an air temperature of AWESOME.
See where I am going with this? Yes, I am getting better it seems. I had a family doctor appointment and a cardiologist appointment last week, and they were both great. The biggest issue was wax build up in my right ear. Considering where I was six weeks ago, I will take it.
More importantly, the heart has not caused me any issues. My two halter days showed perfection. The meds are doing what they are supposed to and my new diet is making a big difference.
