Day 26-Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary- Sick Day Continues… (Plus MORE WEIGHT LOSS)

Sick day… again.
Woke up at nearly 3 pm and was so tired. I forced myself on my Leaps and Rebounds rebounder and that helped SO MUCH. I have to keep this old immune system running.

I wasn’t very hungry today at all. R found some rapid tests and he tested negative. We know people who were vaccinated and tested negative as well with the rapid tests, only to turn up positive with molecular testing. Finding locations for testing right now is difficult. I am quarantining according to symptoms. I found a test tomorrow at CVS, but they didn’t have enough for the rest of us, so I get to be the molecular guinea pig.


Lethargy and getting winded at the slightest thing seems to be the norm. We opened a bookshelf to assemble, but Maisie and I were tired out just from that bit of exertion.

A lesser goldfinch or sparrow or some sort of bird flew into the house and into her closet when I opened the door to bring in the packages. Any of those birds is a sign of good luck, so I am all for that. She laughed so hard when it perched in her closet. Birdie safely flew out the front door before Cake the cat could catch him.


Bedroom remodel is on hold for now. The bed is delayed somewhere in Ohio. We’re too tired from whatever bug this is. It’s most likely Omicron, since we have every single symptom. It’s lingering and mild, but also annoying and exhausting.

I woke up to fantastic news! I am down to 166!! That is almost 14 lbs in 26 days, not too shabby.
I still have to start some yoga/muscle-building exercises soon. Cardio alone is not enough at my age.

I had to force myself to eat dinner. My appetite is nil. I was glad I did, though, because I felt better.

The last fueling, the caramel macchiato shake was delish. I felt like I was cheating.
