I lost weight last week, which I’m surprised at, given how much I ate and how little I walked. Then again, I didn’t eat much for a couple of days after I got poisoned from the Allulose. Plus, on Thanksgiving itself, I fasted all morning and didn’t eat until we feasted.
As for walking, I don’t know what I did to my knee last week. But it’s kind of swollen, and at present, hurts a lot when I bend it. I have knee braces, and it’s easier to walk with those. I may spend some time today really trying to figure out what I did, and what I need to do to fix it (besides give it time). I averaged 6K steps last week, my lowest week for quite some time. Probably won’t do much better this week given the shape (and pain) of my knee. I have ordered a new knee brace, but that won’t arrive for a week or so. In the meanwhile, I sit a lot. Which the kitty doesn’t mind.
I’m really disappointed with the writing last week. I knew that I wouldn’t be writing much for a few days due to life. I’d planned on having a mini-writing marathon, maybe even get a little ahead. Then I got the Allulose poisoning, and I couldn’t write for a couple of days. Managed 3000 yesterday, but that’s no where near enough. I won’t NaNo this month. I’ll be close – between 43-45K. As I said, I’m really disappointed.
I had planned on spending time writing today, maybe get another 3-5K done. However, today is a meh day. Just writing this blog has been painful. I’m hoping that after I do all the things I might be able to get in a few hundred words, but I’m not holding my breath.
A couple of weeks ago I bought myself a dehumidifier for the tiny house. I figured it might help some. I get a lot of moisture in here, with the windows fogging up, etc. This little thing has worked great! I’m really pleased with how much moisture it’s managing to suck out of the air. It has a 2L capacity, and I am filling it every 5-6 days. According to my hygrometer, the humidity has lowered in here from 68% down to 49%.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I’ll be 59. Almost an old fart. (^_^) Not sure what all we’re doing, but I’m going to do what I can to make the day special. I’m really glad that I had a party last year. Don’t know if I’ll have one next year or not.
And I think that’s it for me. I just have no brain. What are you doing to be gentle to yourself today? How are you taking care of yourself?
