Good morning. I hope everyone's day has started out well. It's bright and sunny here, promising to be another very hot day. We did get a bit of rain yesterday, so that helped.
It's been a strange week, but also a good one. Wednesday was my birthday and I was given a surprise party during a meeting on Tuesday, which was awesome. Our calligraphy guild performed a 1/2 time segment at a music festival on Friday evening and yesterday, I went to lunch with a very good friend. All in all, it was busy, but went well.
Tomorrow I have to go see my cardiologist... nothing special; just a follow-up, so I don't expect it to take very long.
Tuesday night is our woodworking club meeting, at which we'll hold the contest I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, which is a 2"x6"x8' project - simply taking a 2x6 board and making "something" from it. I made a quilt rack that I'll give away. I got it painted the other day, now I need to do some sanding and probably touch up paint on it.
Anyway, I've been busy. As I said, last week, busy for me, doesn't always mean active because I spend so much time either planning at my computer or standing in my shop. Because of the lack of activity I encounter, plus the fact that I don't lose weight without exercise, I've made a decision to spend, at least 30 minutes/day doing some type of physical exercise/activity. I need to get my muscles built back up again and exercise is the only way I'll be able to do that.
All of that said, I'm still holding steady with the weight. I'd like to be dropping, but I have to, either, exercise or starve in order to lose weight. I'm not big on starving, so I guess it's going to be exercise. I'm "okay" with staying the same - at least I'm not going up, but I do need to start going down. Our anniversary cruise is only 2 months away, so obviously, I'm not going to lose as much as I'd originally wanted, but I do need to get "some" weight off.
That's my story... how has your week been? I'm sure schools are out in most of the country and everyone is thinking about vacation time, keeping kids busy vs bored, etc. I hope you were able to meet whatever goals you set for yourself over the past week.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
