Heading out to our mechanic's garage shortly. I can tell it is going to be "one of those weeks." I went into the garage this morning, and smelled fuel. I alerted my husband, who checked, and discovered a slow drip from somewhere in the fuel line of my car. It is going to be ANOTHER trip to the garage - different car, same month. A dripping fuel line cannot be ignored. I hope my hubby is right, and it will "just" be a replacement hose, but he also said I should have them replace the fuel filter at the same time. So, while he is off to work, I am using my vacation day dealing with a car issue, instead of making the house pretty for all the guests we're expecting next week. Hey, forever the optimist and always looking on the bright side, at least we didn't blow up!
Isn't it amazing, how we adapt to things? I now get the basic 8 (8 oz) glasses of water ingested by midmorning, without even thinking about it, or trying. And I actually wake up in the morning thirsty. My body is clearly getting used to being properly hydrated.
This is day seven of the Son of Double Dog Challenge - 25% through the challenge already! The body's weight loss efforts are slowing down (seemingly), but this may have nothing to do with the challenge. I've been fairly consistent in losing - with the exception of a 3-week plateau in September, so this may just be the body's readjustment period. Maybe it is adjusting to the water intake volume, or maybe this is just something my body just has to do every two months, who knows? I wish it picked a different month than Killer November, but we don't always get to choose our challenges, right? No worries - I'm sticking to the SDDDY parameters and have not deviated from the plan. I don't intend to either.
If I stick with it, I should be down at least to 251 ... or even into the 240s before Christmas! I'm looking forward to that and getting healthier by the day.
