Woke at 236.4 lbs. That’s what happens when I don’t track my food for two days.
@lava2007, my body seems to feed up with me and my training choices. I wouldn’t call myself one of those “I’ll keep going until I can’t go anymore” kind of people, but my body is definitely shutting me down in a hurry. I thought I was doing a decent job of avoiding things that hurt but I’ve learned that there are some things that just hurt later.
I’m taking my wife up on her challenge to do nothing with my lower body for a couple weeks. I’m getting another MRI with contrast this morning and my follow up is next Tuesday.
I think it’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned my rental house so here’s an update. I think I found a tenant. Actually, it might be a lot of tenants. A woman approached me about renting it so she can use it as a group home for girls ages 13-17. She is self employed and has a contract with the state to take on kids who are in state’s custody.
My wife has some of those girls as students and I see some of them in my line of work. It’s kind of a risk in terms of my property getting damaged but we want to do it. It might be a long term deal and it can be our way of providing something good for these girls.
Our foster system sucks. People take the kids just for the money and don’t use it on the kids. But people like my wife and I have worked hard for our home and don’t want to bring in so the chaos that can come with a foster kid. Basically I know there’s a problem but I’m not willing to step in to help. I just can’t bring that choas into my house with my kids. This group home might be a middle ground for us to have an impact on these kids.
I won’t be involved other than owning the house but we’re willing to help furnish the place and gather things like clothes and toiletries for the girls that come through there.
We’re hoping to provide a nice, safe place for these kids. The lady who will be in charge has the goal of teaching them how to value their home and take care of it. It’s simple but you wouldn’t believe how many people don’t do that. They tear their home up and live in filth.
