No weight loss this week. I’m honestly not surprised. I also won’t be surprised if it turns out I that I drop a couple of pounds next week. There are a few reasons why.

First off, I over ate last week. There was one night where I went out to eat and then ate far too much. I was uncomfortably full. I hadn’t done that in a long time. But I recognize the feeling, and I know I had done it too often in the past.

Secondly, I didn’t walk enough. I had some meh days last week and I didn’t get in my steps.

Thirdly, and probably most importantly, my period started yesterday.


I had figured I was over this shit. But no. I had no symptoms or warnings that it was about to start. After it started, I had a really meh day.

I know from past experience that I retain water during my period. I frequently will weigh more during my period, and instantly lose all that weight as soon as it’s over.

So even though the scale didn’t show any movement today, I figure it will next week.

I have the next scene plotted out in the novel that I get to go write today. Possibly even the next two scenes. I may even have this chapter sort of figured out, as I think I know what happens at the end of it.

Right now I’m writing longer chapters and I’m not sure that’s right. I may end up chopping the chapters up more. Will take a look at that today.

Plus, I need to layer in more setting. Got lots of people and opinion, just not enough wallpaper, as it were.

And I think that’s it from me this Monday. I’m just starting to get baby birds out here. Little tiny fluffy chickadees. They’re going through the food like crazy! I’m having to fill the feeders every day. I’d like to think that it’s because I finally found the right food, but I know it’s just because there are so many birds right now.

Tell me what’s new and exciting in your world!
