Good morning. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It's somewhat overcast here, but it looks like it's going to be a nice day, which is good. I need it.
Last week was pretty busy and so will this week be. Yesterday, I spent the day in a calligraphy class, which was fun, but shortly after that, the day turned sour!! It ended with a bank fraud event and spent most of the evening getting debit cards cancelled, online banking shut off, and whatever else could be done to protect our accounts. The worst part of the thing is that I walked right into it and provided every bit of information the scammers needed. Looking back on it now, it's all so obvious and I should have known better!! That said, what's done is done and we have to move forward.
I'm still spending a lot of time not doing a lot of moving around (aka exercise), because I'm still having to wear my foot brace as much as possible. My foot seems to be a lot better and I'm not seeing a lot of the swelling I had prior to wearing the boot, and now the brace. As tough as wearing them has been, I'm grateful to have able to get it healed without surgery. It's spring and I have a lot of outside work to get done, so that will be quite a bit of "exercise" and the neighbor I walk with, will be back here in a week, so I'll start walking again. Hopefully, that will help shed a couple of pounds.
I have started eating more salads and protein, which means less carbs, so I'm hoping that will help. It's hard to change my eating pattern too much because husband is definitely a "meat and potatoes" person, not inclined to change his habits. He doesn't care much for chicken (unless it's KFC) and he can't stand the smell of fish cooking so I don't eat much of them, either, except when he's not home!! He, also, doesn't eat vegetables (other than the occasional salad, tomatoes and corn), so I eat those on my own!!
So that was the long, round about way of saying that I'm within 0.2 lb as the last 2 weeks. I'll take it because I'm not gaining but I really need to get cracking and actually "do" something to start losing!! My sisters are planning a get together in early June and I'd like to have dropped a little bit by then. Isn't a family gathering the perfect incentive to lose weight?? :-)
That's my week, how's your week been? I know some of you have been caught in horrible storms that have crossed country. I hope the weather has started to calm down and life has resumed.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
