Funkytown

August 12, 2013

Well, it’s been 17 days since my last blog. I guess it’s a combination of frustration and laziness. Ever get that way, in a funk? Well that’s where I’ve been. Funkytown.

Horrible excuses, but true. Frustration because of where I work (not the church) and weight. It’s tied in together.

I have found that I don’t get hurt easier, but it takes me longer to heal. I was at work and for one hour and forty-five minutes my entire time was involved in keeping a kid ( I work in a psych hospital) from hurting himself or other kids. So for the entire time, this kid kept running at me, trying to knock me over or off of my chair which was blocking the door. My neck and back were killing me.

One hour and forty-five minutes. I was hired to take care of the spiritual part of mental health, but get hijacked to do other things. Frustrating. But, being the obedient slouch that I am, I do it. I do it unto the Lord, but keep asking the Lord, “Really?” Why we question God, the Creator of the universe, I never know.

So that leads to my next frustration……..weight.

17 days ago I was 262. So excited, remember? (If not, read my blog “The Good Fight”). I was heading to 260 like it was my job. Well, since then I’ve been floating between 263-267. Frustrated? Way beyond, as I have been to Planet Fitness 14 out of the last 17 days, and have increased weight training. Everyone says, “It must be muscle”.  Yeah. Right. Whatever.  But here’s the cool part.

There is a pair of blue pants I wear to work that are tight. Bonnie always irons these ones first (which I’m appreciative) and I wear them. They are tight. I don’t think I look good in them, but I wear them, because some of the other pants I have look like I have a load of crap in them, as they’re big. (Not that that hasn’t happened, but that’s another story).

So she irons them for me to wear for preaching yesterday (she did it on purpose), and they not only fit, but they are loose. I mean, almost big. I’m pretty excited. She purposely made me wear them so I could see that I’m doing ok. Gotta love that woman.

So, no scale for a week. No discouragement through it, and I’ll see what a week holds. I’m pretty excited as things may not be as they appear. Or they are.

Weight today was 265.2  I’ll keep walking.
