Not sure I’m ready lol – Well actually I know I’m not ready. I have a (AM meeting and an 11AM meeting and then over lunch I will start packing so I can pay for our luggage and pick our seats early tomorrow morning when I check in.
We wanted to get the pool open before we left so it didn’t grow a bunch of algae while we were gone. That turned out to be a series of unfortunate events LOL
The pump motor would not start. Then when it finally did we had water spraying our of one of the lines next to the pump house. We got a temporary plug in that so my husband could vacuum the FILTH out. Seems with the safety cover it lets dirt through – and with the dogs playing on it all winter all the dirt just sifted through…It’s clear – but the bottom is covered in dirt, like a lake 🙂
He started to vacuum, I left to go get my pre-vacation wax (more about that later). I was at the salon and I get a text that the filter valve cracked and was shooting water all over the pump house! The filter was leaking and the pump house was flooded ????????????????
I was going to pick up a new length of hose while I was out but the pool place does not carry that – “You have to call a plumber” I don’t know a pool plumber! Thank goodness for Friends! I Messaged my friend Tina and she hooked me up with someone…That just called and he can’t help me until next week Thursday at the soonest 🙁 I have another place to call at 9:00 when they open Cross your Fingers for me!!!!
OK so not much more I can do about that for the moment. I guess I will be heading to the pool supply store at lunch if the next place can’t help me and I will spend my afternoon being Kelly the Plumber.
So I wanted to share a bit more knowledge that I have gained on my newly focused efforts on doing Keto properly. I was kind of flustered and cranky the last few days as the scale was slowing creeping up and my hip was starting to hurt again. After some back and forth with my sister I decided to track my every data point I had in my LoseIt app since I started on April 17th and see if I could see what had changed. I have some screen shots below to illustrate my discovery. I could not see just by looking at the date what was going on – until I added some trend lines 🙂 While I was still holding my percent of daily calories right around 80% from fat, over time I had slowly started to cut back my total calories and therefore my total fat consumed. My brain was falling back into that “keep calories low” mode and it was killing all I was working on.
So yesterday I worked to get my fat back up and guess what – the scale started to turn back around today 🙂 It’s so Freaking Crazy!!! CRAZY! At the end of the day yesterday I had consumed 1986 calories! It’s not the exercise – because I thought maybe it was that cuz I have been lazy since last Monday. I have not started to do anything again so that is not what made the scale respond. I’m just super sensitive to insulin I guess. I love data – I’m a data whore actually. It tells you so much more than what meets the eye.
At the end of the day – I look pretty good for my trip and I will enjoy it.
Oh Yeah! The waxing! I have gone the last three weeks without shaving my legs so I could go get them waxed before my trip so I didn’t have to worry about shaving while I was gone. That hurts way less the Brazilian I get. The only spot that really hurt was on the front of my shins – I find that odd LOL
Anyway – things to go do.
May the 4th Be With you 😉
UPDATE: The pool guy is coming back this evening to get it all fixed!!! We will be good to go before bed.
