FFF 2.0 – 4-12-20

So here we are, just another day in Paradise… Seriously, life is good, although I’m not riding the high of last week any more. And I’m not getting in the steps I did either.

Steps – 5,591 – 4 days of hitting my goal and 3 sad little days puts me right back in my average range. My scale has its own theme song:

My glucose levels are still ok, which is almost weird. But I’ve discovered that the tests you do at home are not all that accurate anyhow. At least, I was reading a couple of articles that said they’re considered accurate if they provide 99% of their readings within 20% of lab results. Twenty percent, y’all. That means if your actual level were 100, it could say 80 or 120 and that meter would still be accurate. And there are a bunch of meters sold that can’t pass that test three times. So yeah, theoretically my levels are fine. But for real, who knows?

But life is full of uncertainty everyday. I am still holding on to my voice and my space in the universe, so we’ll see where that takes me. Ran across this quote today and had to agree:

“We are not here to fit in, be well balanced, or provide exempla for others. We are here to be eccentric, different, perhaps strange, perhaps merely to add our small piece, our little clunky, chunky selves, to the great mosaic of being. As the gods intended, we are here to become more and more ourselves.”
― James Hollis, What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life

And it’s spring, which down here, moves pretty quickly into summer, so the days are mostly sunny and more beach time is on my agenda…

  1. Spring in the South is so fleeting. Daffodils, tulips, dogwood, azaleas,,, then 4 months of heat, humidity, sweat, and gallons of iced tea. I lived in the South in the pre-air conditioning era. Enjoy the Spring.

    • Lol, Willie – my sister has a theory that when one person loses weight, somebody else has to gain it. I hope you lose your 10, but don’t send it my way! hahaha Y

      Yeah, I’m gonna step more next week. Sigh, for real. 🙂


  3. Happy Spring! Hey just cos some days you didn’t meet the step goal is no reason to feel defeated. My scale went up and stayed up over the last 2 weeks. I’ve been battling it this week. I’m not going to let it win. No way! Hrmph take that!

    • Yeah, I know you’re right. It’s just irritating that I know I feel better when I’m more active, but then what do I do? Sit hunched over my computer all day…. Sorry to hear you’ve been struggling with your scale too – but yay for being a pound down!! Lol, nibbling on spinach leaves… Thanks, Fondles.
