I am terribly sorry for neglecting this blog. It feels like there’s little of interest at this point.
Since I last wrote, I went to SCCA twice. Most recently, my numbers are coming back up after having been trending slightly down. They were actually glad they went down a little because it means everything is working.
I also had my 29th birthday! We even ate French fries for the first time in months. They were delicious.
We also had a fun Labor Day weekend, with a cabin trip and a hike up Mt Townsend. The hike was really hard for me, but I did make it up!
We have also discovered delicious almond ricotta cake. It’s perfect because the smallest ricotta you can buy in stores is about twice what we need for spaghetti squash lasagna, and it goes bad before we want to use it again. And, the cake tastes just like Dan’s favorite treat: spritz cookies. https://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/keto-almond-ricotta-cake/
I’ve also been stretching again and even took class with my coach over zoom. He is an amazing zoom teacher- it felt like he was right in the room with me!
I am mostly still working, though I was off today because of the air quality. If we can’t open our garage doors, the gym becomes a total hot box!
As for the weight loss game, I think I’m going to hang out here around 115 pounds. I got a pair of size 24 jeans for $5 on a crazy sale at J Crew and they fit! I’ve had 24 shorts for a long time, but was always a 25 in full pants. Dan and I went to kohl’s to buy him some shirts that actually fit, which was really fun. He’s in the smaller jeans that he owns and happily made it under 200 pounds for the first time since high school! This all means that we’ve lost just about 90 pounds as a little family. Dan has also been back to rowing 8k and can now hula hoop for over 20 minutes at a time! I love the weighted hoop and regularly go an hour or more.
