Well, just as I decided to return to the gym, it closed. Our governor closed all gyms, etc for the next 8 weeks because obviously we individually are not doing a great job with social distancing! Guess I will keep walking outdoors and working out at home! Oh well.
With so many things closed, my special needs son is going a bit stir crazy at home. His job is closed, all his sporting activities have been cancelled, church is cancelled - so he is struggling a bit. Personally, I am glad these things are suspended - as he would be high risk. Yesterday, I picked him up and we went two hour walk in the woods - not exactly a workout, but it was outdoors in the sunshine! Not sure who enjoyed it most, him, me or the dog! Felt that was a pretty safe place to be. No close contact with people, and fresh air!
I've been doing ok. The weight loss has slowed down quite a bit. Still coming down, but no more 6 ounces or more a day. I also have been working some healthy carbs in my diet. Still trying to keep them around 30 -40 a day. This week it was a baked potato! Yum! Who would think one would get excited about eating a baked potato?
Today I finally dipped into Onderland - just barely (199.8) but I am there! Hopefully to stay!
The virus precautions have people pretty scared. People are hoarding food, paper products, you name it. Crazy stuff. Luckily, I was able to get the things I needed at the store - did have to hit two stores to get milk - but I was able to get it. Hopefully over the next couple weeks this will die down. I have enough food in my house to eat for a while - it may not be things I would want to eat right now, but I could if necessary!
Stay safe out there people!
