Burgertime: Adair Field Work

Here is your Bokeh Picture of the Week:


Bokeh

In this picture Bokeh is running with a tennis ball that Lola, the dog from across the street, gave her. She had a vet appointment on Friday where she got 2 shots. Only 2 more rounds of shots and she will be good for a year. She now weighs 23.9 pounds.

A few weeks back I went on a road trip with Nader and we ended up in Adair to try the burger at the Chuckwagon in Adair. It was one of the 10 finalists for Best Burger in Iowa, but it did not win. Here are some pictures:

The burger was a hot delicious mess! I would gladly go back there. I wouldn’t make a special trip from Boone, but if I was on I-80 between Des Moines and Omaha, I would pull over and knock down a tasty burger from there.

You can find the Chuckwagon Restaurant here:

But…

How is my efforting to live a healthy lifestyle going?

This week my weight went down 0.0 pounds. I weight exactly the same as I did last Sunday. Definitely a week of plateauing, but also a week of not exercising much and not eating well. But it happens. I am now down 46.5 pounds since starting Noom.

So my new goal is to drop that 8.1 pounds by the 4th of July. That would be around 2 pounds a week, which seems realistic. Although. I can say for certain that after I reach my “ultimate goal weight” that goal weight will change. I’m going to guess with about another 25 pounds or so. We’ll see. I have to make that weight first.

But weight isn’t the only measure (or even the most important measure) of positive results. I’m not sure I can come up with any this week. Obviously there are. I guess I’ll just go with yardwork is definitely easier these days.

Since I started using Fitbit on February 20, 2024 (117 days) I’ve:

+ Taken 1,402,585 steps
+ Averaged 8,154 steps a day for the last 7 days
+ Walked 648.81 miles
+ Averaged walking 5.54 miles a day

That is all to report for now.
