Weigh-in Wednesday #48 - Odin's bad eye

Yesterday, I said that I was going into weigh-in blind, and so I did.  It is said that Odin, father of the Norse gods, sacrificed one of his eyes to drink of the Well of Urd whose waters imparted the knowledge of the cosmos.  Well, I could use more knowledge (couldn't everyone?) and I do drink a lot of water, but am I willing to go blind for it?  Not really.  So, what does this have to do with Weigh-in Wednesday?  Well, the day after Týr's Day is Wēdnes Dæg...and Wednesday is named after Wōdin (Anglo Saxon for Odin) and in order to check my weight on the scale, I had to open my eyes to gain the knowledge of my new number.  You with me so far?  Good, I'm glad you're coming with me on this.  Haha...luckily, Mímir (guardian of the well) didn't ask for anything in return, though I did sacrifice 0.7lbs of fat.

I worked out like a viking and ate like a valkyrie and lost 0.7 pounds this week.  Progress is progress whether it's 0.7 of a pound or 7 pounds, right?  And speaking of progress, I meant to post this on Thor's Day and not 7 weeks later like the last WIW update.  Alas, I couldn't get my Asgård in gear and am posting this on Friday.  Ah, Frigg!
