This has been a week of adventures. Of a sort anyway. On Tuesday, we got another batch of wintry mix weather here, and as you know the South shuts down when that happens. This made going to the gym kind of difficult when I couldn’t leave my house for a day. On Friday, I had my head shaved for St. Baldrick’s to raise money for child’s cancer research. On friday night, I took a razor to it and went with a chrome dome look. The decision to razor it is one that I regret, but luckily hair grows back.
I digress. This last week I dropped 6 more pounds (I was genuinely yet pleasantly surprised to discover this), and over the course of the last 2 weeks, I dropped another inch from my body. This is a total of 5.5 inches since Project Rogers 2.0 started about 40 days or so ago. Not too bad, I think.
I’m getting a change in my meal plan from my coach soon, and I’m a little on edge about that. I’m a creature of habit, and deviations make me itchy. But I’m sure I’ll acclimate to it easily enough. We shall see. Anyway, I’ll see you lovely people in a week. Keep flying. :)
6 more pounds last week, and some other neat bits of info!
Every rep, clean meal, and calorie burned is a hammer swing, shaping and forming a block of marble into what we want our bodies to be. We are the Michelangelo to our very own ‘David’. I’ve got a long road ahead, but it’s beginning to take shape.
So after about 33 days of 2.0, I am down a total of 21 pounds. For those keep tally, that’s -3 pounds in the last week, adding up to a total of 21. For whatever reason, I was disappointed with this number. I complained about it to Bry and she kind of called me a bloody idiot. Well, she never said those words, but I can read intent :D. 21 pounds over the course of 33 days is pretty solid and sustainable. Also, when you think about it, 21 pounds of fat is a lot of mass.
My goal is 100 pounds before the Olympia this September. I’ve tallied out what it will take to reach that going on a week by week basis, and I am well on my way. My stretch goal of 150 pounds by the end of the year, I am still on pace for that too, but that one is going to be a challenge for sure.
Thanks for the kind and supportive messages, y’all. I can’t explain what it’s meant to me. Keep flying. <3

It was a moment that changed my life. In that second I stopped to question almost everything I had been taught about the past. How often had I overlooked women’s contributions?"

Why have I not learned about this in my anthro classes!?
I could be wrong, but maybe it was meant to mean man as in “species”, not sex?
