Weekly update #4

Another boring update, not much to say, still stuck at home and travel is quite difficult, unfortuntately my wifi modem failed which means internet browsing 24/7 is severely curtailed, while watching my favourite Youtube channels (or any Youtube videos for that matter) is completely off the list.

I ate slightly more than I should have this week, not a lot though.  Some days I am hungrier than others, even though I am eating pretty much the same thing.

Sunday 5,440KJ excess 8,790

Monday 5,385KJ excess 8,175

Tuesday 7,695KJ excess 9,870

Wednesday 6,465KJ excess 10,335

Thursday 5,936KJ excess 10,271

Friday 6,278KJ excess 10,549

So my excess kilojoules is slowly marching up, about 1,000KJ (roughly 2 apples worth) in a week.  I went against my desire to not eat ice cream on Tuesay, but I did manage to slow down the effect of it before then.

Being stuck at home for 5 weeks (except trips to the hospital for x-rays, and an exam) has had an effect on my mental health, no doubt about it. I'm just so unmotivated.  Lying in bed tricks the brain to think it's time to do nothing important.

Theoretically, I'll have my cast off on Thursday.  This coming week I've got lots of things to eat, Monday I'll be taking the wifi modem to the post office to send away, and I'll treat myself to something nice in a cafe just near the post office.  Tuesday I'll have more ice cream, and then Thursday I'll have (I really hope so) my cast off.  That means I'll treat myself, and Friday, a special project starts and I'll treat myself then too.  I don't expect to lose much weight next week but really, I don't know if I'm losing weight at all right now.  I'm almost certainly not gaining.  I don't know if I gained weight in the hospital, maybe a little bit.

See you next week, assuming that I can weigh myself, I'll post my weight on Sunday after weighing on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


  1. Hi Mannie,
    I do hope you get the cast off as planned. Hang in there. :)

  2. Thanks Caron, good to hear from you, and I hope that things are good with you and your maintenance.
