Productive Day

October 5th, 2009 at 05:41 pm

So I got the entry painted, took about 5 hours to do it all right. Also got out the house jack and lifted up the corner of our deck that was sinking. Also went to the lumber yard and ordered new spindles for the deck since they didn't have any in. I'll get those on Friday, so I'll be able to put those on, sand, stain and seal the deck over the course of the next week. I'll borrow a hand held belt sander to sand the deck down, and I have a paint sprayer to stain with.

Also mowed my yard, and took out the dying annual pot flowers. Nothing left to do as far as working on the house except the deck this week.

Tomorrow will be nice to get the deer stuff finally around and done. Maybe I'll get some deer hunting in later this week and put one in the freezer. Could use the meet. You can kill all the doe you want in Missouri for $7 a tag, good stuff.

Mayo doesn't have the labs finished yet. First we were supposed to know Friday. Then today. Now tomorrow. We'll find out eventually. I hope they can work with us. Would be a big help.

I'm not losing any weight working out, but then again when you're 6'4" 230, I don't really expect to lose too much weight as I do just get leaner and put on some bulk. Didn't get my workout in yet today, so it will be a late night when I get home. Usually do about 45 minutes of solid cardio and half an hour of weights each day, and it's helping. DW notices anyway, and that's what counts. That and my PT test in 3 weeks.

But I'm off to take a shower and go play cards.

    Good luck on the hunting. Slim pickins this year in Northern California. This may be the first year DH has not gotten one for a long time. Last year my SIL got one and gave most of it to us, since he was home visiting and could only take so much in dry ice back home to the Carolinas in a suitcase. DH got one too and we still have some left. I love ground venison burgers but don't really like the rest of it, but DH loves it.

    Wow, for $7? All you can shoot? Maybe Missouri isn't so bad. lol!

    Nothing better than venison!

    And remember that the stress you are under could be keeping you from losing any weight right now. Staying even & not gaining would be considered good in this situation I think.

    Good luck with your hunt.

    As long as your prep leads you to be ready for your PT test you will be fine, I think that Lux hit the nail on the head about the stress and the weight. Probably the main thing is to use the workouts as emotional insurance that you will be able to manage the ups and downs of this process. Good luck with everything... that $7 tag could be some of the best money spent!
