Good morning, everyone. Well, it’s still early (4:40 am and still dark); it’s foggy and I think we’re supposed to be getting some rain today – not exactly what I had on my agenda, but I guess there’s not a lot I can do about it, so I might as well relax and go with the flow…
There hasn’t been a lot going on this week… a bit of drama with my daughter that wasn’t very pleasant, but that seems to seems to be a normal thing these days – you'd think I should be used to that by now, huh… :-) She, her daughter and her significant other did come over for a while today to celebrate her and my husband’s birthdays, even though it was a bit late for both and the day went well, so that was good.
I’m in the process of getting ready for a visit from my son and daughter-in-law who live in the Kansas City area. We haven’t seen them for 4 yrs, so we’re looking forward to that. They will only be here for a few days, but, hey – it’s better than nothing.
I’ve been trying to watch what I eat, but didn’t do so well today since we were celebrating birthdays – yeah, we had cake (well, cupcakes – same thing). I’ve also been doing really well with my walking. I’ve gone every day the past week, which is good – maybe. It’s pretty hard on my legs as they get really tired by the time we get through that 1.5 miles, but I’m afraid that if I don’t do it, I’ll get to the point where I’m unable to do it. It’s the blood flow issue that I’m having the procedures done for that are causing them to get so tired… well, the cramps caused by the blood flow problem are part of the issue, too – they leave my muscles so sore, then walking sort of adds insult to injury, so to speak…
Anyway, that was a long-winded way to say I’ve gained 0.2 lbs… perhaps if I’d stood a bit differently on the scale or something, I might have stayed the same…lol Although I’d have preferred to lose some (I know - leave the cupcakes alone...), I’m not going to beat myself up – at least I didn’t gain a lot this week, so I’ll consider that a win!!
So – how is everyone else doing? I hope you’ve all had a good week and have met your goals.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
