We're also not that worried -- still going to the grocery store for random things, still getting a cuppa at the Starbucks drive-thru, but doing less than usual that involves being close with crowds. (No movies, and the idea of a spring vacation that involves travel is out.) I assume there are a lot more changes to come, as the state figures out what it wants to do to flatten the curve.
My husband got macho three days ago when they closed the schools (which was a little sobering). He raced to Safeway to save the family from destitution by buying the last roll of paper towels. I told him to wait, but no-o-o, he (and apparently every other person in our neighborhood) was just sure everything would be gone, and it was his manly duty to stand in line with 50 other people at the checkstand.
As a result of a guy doing the shopping, we have an over-abundance of perishables that need to be eaten. We ate a huge meal last night. I think it was also the comfort-food thing -- a favorite meal made us feel like everything was just fine. As a result, I'm up a pound, though so much of it was roughage and veggies that I might be back to where I was by tomorrow.
Will weigh in later to confirm.
Good Morning, well I am proud to say after one week of staying away from the yeast and other unhealthy food I had lost 3 pounds. Not much but a start.
Here in Tx, our county saw its first 6 people test positive from Friday to Sunday. This and the state of emergency led to the store shelves being emptied. Our local HEBs had to limit people two items per purchase and had to change their hours to have time to restock the shelves. It was sad we decided we didnt need to go into hoarder mode we just went for our regular shopping . I couldnt find any soups, or bone broth at my store. I ended up getting veggie broth and two chicken noodle soups.
In addition we got lucky on dog food for my two babies and got the last small bag of dog food on the shelve there was plenty of large bags though LOL. My husband always gets 7 of the little nestle quick strawberry milks. We didnt realize the limit sign that was posted, until someone came up and told us we will only be allowed 2. SAD. I get everyone wanting to be cautious, but this buying everything on the shelves doesnt make sense.
They said to stay away from crowds and yet most people rushed to over crowd our stores and get supplies that isnt needed.
Oh well, life goes on for my family. We are being cautious but living. I wont go visit my grandparents because I have a slight cough (more then likely allergies) and pray everyday that my step daughter who is going through Chemo is being cautious and staying away from large crowds. My husband and me went and got a few more movies to add to our overly large collection and stayed home to watch them all weekend. My husband due to his seizure condition I am praying over daily. I know that it is not one of the high risk factors but fever can cause them and I would hate to go through that. Otherwise life is normal and I am continuing to fight to lose the weight.
I never did weigh yesterday, but I did it this morning. I'm the same as I was last week, so I guess I'm good with that - probably have to be, won't I? :-) At least, I didn't gain any, even if I didn't lose. Anyway, we're into a new week and I'll keep trying...
Like most people, we're trying to go on as close to normal as we can. I did have a neurology appointment this morning and had to stop at the pharmacy for a couple prescriptions afterwards. It wasn't very busy, but then people don't start moving much around here until after lunch (we live just outside a large retirement community...lol).
I'm off with husband to find tractor parts. I'll go along for the ride and stay in the van.
