Today I had a breakfast sandwich with avocado, spinach, tomato, bacon, over easy egg and cheese.

Went for an early walk with my sis.

So the roofers showed up. And will be doing the repair work without charging me. They are honoring the warranty. Which is great!

went to the gym and did some strength training on whole body. Still missed a couple of machines.

For lunch I had a chicken thigh and some steamed veggies. Probably have the same for dinner. Made it in my air fryer.

Going to be more focused on my diet the next couple of days.

I think I’m going to start back at the gym to gain muscle.

Dinner was a piece of chicken thigh. Planning on having some more steamed veggies a little later.

My plan for tomorrow is eat at home all day. I do have to go to Bedford to pick up my brothers med. probably go in the morning.

my sis just brought over a pad Thai soup she made for me. I had it last night.

Had a really nice sleep last night. Got up early and went to the gym. Did some strength training. It was raining so we didn’t have our walk.

Came home and had breakfast. I had an egg with red onions and spinach. I also had 2 slices of tomato.

About to go to Bedford so my bro gets his medicine. I hope it’s going to be quick.

I have go buy some frozen veggies for lunch and dinner. I made some oven baked chicken.

lunch was frozen veggies and 3 magnum wingettes. Had a snack of cashew nuts. Had a banana. Hadn’t had one in months.

Going to a park in Newburyport to walk. Probably get something to eat after. Then tomorrow we r getting together. Probably have curry chicken and maybe rice. Probably go for a morning walk. Will def go to the gym and strength train. I hope that I will like it and for it not to feel like a chore.

Dinner was a lobster pie, baked potato with butter and sour cream. One plum rum punch.

I’m up really early. Watching a movie. Going for a hike this morning. Have to stop at heavenly before I go by my sis.

Today I’m doing a rest day. Feeling sore.
My sis made me breakfast. Egg, cheese, avocado, ham, and cashew butter in a tortilla.

Went for the hike. Mostly uphill. One and a half hours with the kids.

Then we went to oarwood restaurant in Ogunquit at pelican cove. Had steamers. And a white sangria.

Went for a walk by the shoreline. About 30 min.

dinner was rice, curry pork, and baked chicken. A little of each.

I am tired right now. Tonight I’m going to take my meds at 11 pm. Hopefully I’ll sleep right away. We r going for an early morning walk tomorrow.

Hi, Vic. I looked up Mount Major. It looks good. Did you get to see the view from the top? That food sounds delicious!

Yes the view from the top was beautiful. First time doing this hike. Will have to go again next year.

I just bought hiking boots. Did not wear them today because I have to break them in. I’ll be doing that this week on our morning walk. These walks are now in the dark with our flashlights.

I don’t want to check my weight tomorrow. Have to start back dieting. Maybe do some IF and skip breakfast. My brother is still here by me. Waiting for my mom to come back to take him back with her. Still have to give in to temptations while he is staying with me.

144.8 lbs! Way too much pizza yesterday!

Today I’m fasting. Drinking water. Not sure how long I’m going to fast.

Just went for a hike at Castle Trail in my new hiking boots. Breaking them in.

it’s 230 and I’m still fasting. Started drinking Diet Coke. Got tired of drinking just water.

Almost 11 pm. Ended up eating 2 tortillas with butter and 1 with mayo with tea.

Still up at 11. Took pills at 10. Will try to fall back asleep at 12 am.
