Today Is Tuesday, February 20, 2024: This Is What Happened.

 


I don't know why I didn't post yesterday. Abner is doing better. I wonder if he got into some poison. Still not really eating. But takes a bite or two. Stop at Regis and get a small handful of his cat food. Try something different. Abner can be a snob. He is drinking water.




Been either walking or exercising. When I say exercise, I include yoga. I do one or the other six days of the week. The last time I usually put food in my mouth was around 6:05 in the evening. Next month, I will decrease it by 5 minutes. So in March, it will be 6:00 in the evening. Breakfast is after 8AM. So, I'm fasting for about 14 hours.

Let's talk numbers and facts. I'm down to 217.2. (98) So I lost about 1.75 (.79). There's not much I will discuss. My average daily calorie intake is 1984. The average daily protein intake is around 3 ounces (76)



I have almost a page completed in my art journal. Ordered a photo of my dad when he was young from our local Photo Plus shop. I will pick it up this week.

I have also been doing some artist trading cards and embroidering.



Had lunch at the senior center and got 2 ½ bags of food. Before we went, I mailed some scrapbook paper to Medford, Oregon, for my Granddaughter. Cost me $10.80. The cubic inches was 392. Drop off a small bag of things at the thrift store. And cash a check at the bank on the way home. I stopped at Regis and got a small hand full of food. Abner is eating, and I only gave him a small amount. Will try some this evening. I went online to see what it would cost for basic ground shipping. Nothing fancy. But do you think I could find the basic ground cost? No! I found all this fancy stuff that cost over $30. Tried the same over on FedEx. Still the same issue.


Today's artist is OLHA PRYYMAK. Check out her other work.

  1. I'm glad that Abner is eating. Sometimes they eat a bug or a spider that doesn't agree with them. Hooray for the weight loss!

    1. Never thought of bugs. The farmer put poison out in the spring for gophers. I kept Abner in during that time.

  2. A small weight loss is still a good weight loss.

  4. If you're shipping through the post office, yeah, they ask for package size as well as weight. It's not too bad, cost wise, but it's a pain to try to price it out. (If you use a flat rate priority shipping box, the price is set, but it can be a bit pricy for the bigger boxes.)

    1. Sort of looked into flat rate boxes. They don't come in correct size.

  6. Is Abner a dog or a cat? are there plants nearby that might be poisonous to animals? I hope he continues to improve. A sick pet is worrying.

  7. Mailing and shipping has gotten expensive. I have a book to send to a friend, the postage is almost what I paid for the book. I will wait until I fly west next winter for a conference.

  8. It feels good to see the numbers on the scale go down. I cannot fast because of blood sugar drop, but I know it works for a lot of people. I think I mentioned I have lost about 50 lbs over 18 months. It started coming off fast, then slowed down, but was steady. Now I'm at a plateau. This happens. I'll be interested in following your progress. I like the art, btw. Hopefully Abner is ok.

    All the best Jan

  10. Good that Abner is eating even a little. Keep going on your diet, Dora, you can do it. Parcel post is a killer for price, we are finding too.

Sleepy. Plus, all day, it felt like Friday. Pretty much the same thing. It's my last day of physical therapy. I came home and made a p...
