Good morning. How's everyone doing this morning. I'm hoping you haven't all gotten trapped in this winter gust we're having this morning. It's cold (35°) and windy here. It's bright and sunny but I'll be spending my day inside - well, until it warms up!!
It's been a different kind of week for me, busy and active, yet still somewhat quiet. Husband has been gone all week and is due back home in a couple of hours. Anyway, with him gone all week, was able to do things I don't normally do a lot of, which is spending time with my neighbor out rumbling around in antiques and/or thrift stores, etc. I also had the opportunity to eat things I don't eat when he's home, such as fish.
Neighbor and I have been walking every morning - at least a mile or little more. We even went out yesterday just before it rained. I figured we had about 1.5 hrs before the rain would be here... nope, we had about 45 minutes and and were very happy to have ridden my golf cart across the field as it was already starting to sprinkle when we returned to it. I dropped my neighbor off at her house and came home as quickly as I could. Just as I pulled onto my carport, the sky opened up and we were in a deluge that lasted for several hours.
Anyway, having been able to eat differently and getting more exercise for the past week, I had actually dropped a couple more pounds; however, I feel bloated and sluggish this morning, so I'm guess I've gained it back again. Last night, I was hungry for cottage cheese, which I ate too much of, then added some cheese curds on top of that - also way more than I should have eaten. That left me with GERD/acid reflux all night, so I ended up sleeping in my recliner so I could sit upright, comfortably. I'm still feeling the reflux this morning, so I'll eat lightly today and hopefully, it will calm down.
I think, when it's all said and done, my weight will end up right back where it's been for some time now, but I'll see in day or so.
I have one more week left with my neighbor here, then she'll be heading back to Oregon and I'll be on my own again until she comes back in October.
This coming week will be busy preparing for my upcoming eyelid surgery next week. I'll not be able to do any housework, will have to sleep in my recliner as I won't be allowed to lie flat, won't be able to bend at the waist, etc. I'll have to make sure everything is ready for me to be out of commission for a week. Husband will cook but he doesn't do cleaning!! :-)
So - that's my story - what's yours? How was your week and did you accomplish your goal(s)? I look forward to hearing about it.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
**Stay safe and wash your hands**
