Good Monday morning... Well, my Sunday weigh in got lost in the shuffle yesterday, so we'll make it a Monday weigh in, this week. Sorry about that.
So last week was pretty hectic and yesterday, just sort of followed through, as non-stop. Add to that, the fact that we went on Tuesday to get our RSV shots and I ended up with all the adverse side effects of the shot (headache, fatigue, redness/soreness at the injection site, etc), along with trying to get through cooking for Thanksgiving. Y'all know I'm prone to fatigue, so the tiredness wasn't anything unusual, other than the fact that I'd been feeling 1/2 way decent until I got that shot. I'm not prone to headaches, so that really knocked my socks off. Tylenol wouldn't begin to take the edge off, so I ended up alternating Tylenol with ibuprofen - that helped some, but sleep seemed to do the most good.
So, it looks like I'm past that hurdle and I'll have to decide next year, whether I want to get that shot and go through that again. Fortunately, I didn't have any issues with either, the flu or Covid vaccines, other than a sore arm for a day or so...
Anyway, daughter and her 2 kids (one grown and lives away) came for Thanksgiving and we made it through without any drama this year, so that was good, since I had such a horrible headache. Everyone had to be somewhere else for meals later in the day, so they all left mid afternoon, which gave me time to get in a good nap.
I've been walking with neighbor every day, except I did take Friday off to try to get past the headache - it didn't help the headache, but I did get to sleep in, which gave me some much needed rest.
Yesterday, we were on the go all day and I had to work on the monthly newsletter for our woodworking group. I got it done, then ended up sending it 3 times, before I got it right. Yeah - 3 times!! First time, I forgot to attach the newsletter to my e-mail; second time, I attached the wrong newsletter and as they say "three's a charm" so I got it right on the third try!!! By then, I was ready to call it a day.
So, with all that, my weight has bounced up and down all week. One day I was down a couple of pounds from last week and another day I was up a couple of pounds. Believe it or not, even with Thanksgiving and eating more/different food than usual, I ended up, yesterday at, exactly, the same weight as last week - right down to the tenth of a pound. I'd rather be down a couple of pounds, but I'll take it. Staying the same is better than going up!!
My next week is going to be very busy as I'm hosting a calligraphy Study Group on Dec 6, so there will be lots of cleaning activity, as well as decorating for Christmas, so that should all keep me moving.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that, in spite of the holiday, you were able to reach your goal(s).
~~Wishing you a wonderful, successful week~~
