LilySlim Weight loss tickers

Thursday, April 12, 2012


Today I went to the medical college for my assessment with the nutrition services student.  It's been cold here lately, so when I dressed I chose jeans, a long sleeved top, and a sweater.  Pretty much as soon as we left the house I realized my mistake.  The weather was gorgeous, and I was regretting my sweater choice before the appointment even started.

The assessment went well.  The consensus was, I'm doing what I need to be doing for my health and my weight loss goals.  I could be eating more veggies, so I agreed to work on that.  They had this cool machine that looked like a scale but did a detailed body composition analysis.  I now know the weight of each individual limb, how much of my body is water, and the percentage of fat in my tissues.  The surprise there was that there's a noticeable difference in each leg.  I can see having a bit more muscle in your dominant hand, but apparently there is a dominate leg, too.  I never knew that 

On the way home we stopped at a discount store to pick up a birthday card for my nephew, Ben.  They had lots of Easter candy on clearance, including chocolate covered Peeps.  My mom loves chocolate covered Peeps.  We got two of them for her and stopped at her house to drop them off.   She was in the yard, dividing up day lilies.  Her lawn, frankly, looked raggedy.  When I had my cancer surgery I hired a yard man for her, since I wasn't going to be able to take care of her lawn for the rest of the season.  Last year, she decided to keep him on.  He's been stopping by every couple days to check on it but he told her yesterday the lawn didn't need to be cut yet.  Um, yeah, it does.  So I borrowed some "yard shoes" from my mom, ditched my sweater, and got the front yard cut.  Her back yard is huge, so I'll have to go back tomorrow to tackle that.  It's supposed to rain for four days starting tomorrow, but I'm crossing my fingers that I can get the work done before it gets wet.
Today, in my garden ~
