Where did those 2 weeks go???????
Sunday, November 06, 2011
It's been 2 weeks again since I've blogged. Where does the time go??? I know I'm busy but this is ridiculous. My daughter and family have not even been here.
The exercise is going well. I have been out to walk almost every morning for the past 2 weeks. Started slow and have increased to a mile. Today I did some strength training. I have found over the last week that I have much more energy! YAY!! Of course, I hesitate to give the exercise the credit. Maybe it's just me! LOL!! I even bought an "underarmour" base layer shirt for these cold mornings. I must be committed--I spent money!
The energy increase has been a real surprise. I mean I feel energized!!!! Yesterday, with regular household chores, I was able to wash all of my windows and do some laundry, etc. Today I cleaned all the porch furniture, hauled it in and down to basement, cleaned the porch, and washed those windows on the outside......came in, made apple crisp and a chicken/sweet potato dish!! I can't remember the last time I had this much energy. I am pooped tonight but very happy with the weekend.
Tracking food and am doing well. The weekends continue to be difficult for me to stay on track. Seems I'm a little higher in my range than I would like to be. I need to work on that. I do fine during the week--just these blasted weekends.
Things will start to get really crazy again next week. The son-in-law will be staying with us as he goes to his training for the new job. A week off for me and then I'll head to PA as they do closings, movers are there to pack, etc. I don't want to think about it right now!!
So, all in all, I've had a good couple of weeks. Just need to keep it up!!
