Monday was a PV day.
Daily weight loss: 0.4 lb/0.20 kg
Total weight loss: 74 lb/33.61 kg
I have no idea how I lost weight while out of town in Taizhou. Having eaten pork intestines, pickled octopus and various and assorted other things… I was careful not to eat anything in gravy, and I even had half a piece of fruit that was like an apple and pear together… but the scale was kind to me… thank you scale!
Whirlwind couple of days on a trip that was a surprise… holding on to the fact that I caught 2 babies keep my spirits up. Coming back yesterday was challenging, I’m not sure which event launched me into a “Michael Douglas in Falling Down” mode, but I felt like a volcano ready to erupt… was it the guy hocking loogies in the restaurant? (everyone here hocks up loogies openly… loud and proud, and spits them on the floor, wherever they might be… men, women, children) or was it the fact that my employer forgot to pick me up at the train station and I had to get in a 1+ hour que to get a taxi… Or was it the lady in said taxi que that did the Haitian nose blow onto my FRIGGIN hiking boot… my reaction parted the crowd like the Red Sea and we moved right up to the front of the line 😀 Or, it could have been the fact that I couldn’t get a taxi to go to a friends house because they do shift change at 5 p.m. and it was GOD FORBID 4 p.m…. her flat is a 15 min. taxi ride… SO I WALKED THE 3.5 MILES… or it could have been witnessing, for the 1000th time, a kid who’s grandmother is hovering her over the sidewalk while she craps, then wipes her and leaves the tissue on the sidewalk… Yeah… FALLING DOWN… argh!
I also walked the 3.5 miles back to my flat… so I think I got my exercise in for the day!
So the sun is TRYING to peak through the pollution, and it’s time to walk to work and confront them about the fact that they sent me on a 2 night trip, with no extra clothes or panties AND forgot to pick me up at the train station… should be a fun mornin’ 😀
Ha ha China – gotta love it. But seriously – GROSS!
6 months here has been enough. It definitely has been an experience.
That’s a full basket of nasty Sandi. Pooping on the street for real? ‘Falling Down’ mode cannot be an easy mode…. I have seen that flick. But…hurray for the downward moving scale 🙂 I checked out your friend Mel’s blog and between the two of you having inspired me, I decided to run today since I can not lift. I did not think it would go so well, the sun was out -great- but it was cccold. My goal was 1 mile non-stop. I warmed up .5 mile, ran the mile then cooled down .5 mile… hurray, I still have my running chops.
That is awesome, Anne!!! Today’s a bit better, at local marketing event for the morning.
Bless you for having successfully emerged from that dark day. I see better things in the future. you deserve better. 🙂 ❤ mom
Thanks, Mom! Love you xoxo
Ewww…. China doesn’t seem that appealing with all those nasty germs spreading. Stay healthy! PS. Well done on the loss 😉
You are so right, Mel. I take echinacea and thank God I’ve lost weight and exercise, otherwise I’m not sure how well I’d be right now! xxx
You poor thing! Sounds disgusting….. LOL – Red Sea reference, the things people will do to get to the front of a queue! Only joking, I know how seriously you take your queue etiquette…..Hehe. Didn’t I say the scales wouldn’t be as bad as you thought???? All I can say is that I wouldn’t like to be your employer! LOL. xoxo
LOL, Sonia… I gave them an earful… frustrating, seriously!
You were right about the scales… I was pleasantly surprised when I got on them!
Well, I think your post explains perfectly well why you lost weight.
Just your anger probably burned off quite a few calories … 🙂
LOL… could be, Moonday… I am SORE AS HELL today from that walk, which cracks me up, because I run and I don’t get sore… I must have had every muscle in my body tightened from anger…. feeling better today, thank goodness 🙂 I tried to leave a comment on your blog earlier… I’m not sure it went through, going to check shortly!
Well done for your weight loss! You deserve it and I’m really happy for you considering The chaotic few days you have had. Bet you are glad to be home x Keep going xxx
Thanks, Meg… I am happy to be back in my flat with my FF greek yogurt, bran and splenda… LOL I have tomorrow off… so excited!
