First, thanks for all the warm thoughts and wishes for our wedding anniversary. They made me smile.
We are experiencing one of the best/dry/warm summers I’ve seen in the Seattle area since moving over hear seventeen years ago. I know the rain is coming early next week, but while the sun is here I will enjoy it. Not that I am really doing much outdoors these days, but I still like it warm and dry when I am outside and especially for the commute to work.
Speaking of work, I am taking vacation next week. Saturday morning, I will travel over to North Idaho to visit family for a few days and then head back to enjoy some rest at home. It will be nice to have a whole week off; I’ve been starting to feel a little burned out.
In my last post, I made a promise to myself to walk at least 2500 steps/day. I have kept that promise every day since. I know it sounds like small potatoes to most, but for this sedentary gal it takes work to get 2500 steps in a day. On more than one occasion during the last week, my husband waited patiently for me to get into bed at night as I marched around the house to reach my goal. I will continue with this goal through September and then raise it to 3000 steps for October. I would like to continuously raise the goal and am hoping that walking more each day becomes a habit or routine soon.
My eating this week hasn’t been horrible but it hasn’t been great either. It’s still a struggle, but I will keep trying. I am hopeful that I can turn things around and still make some decent progress this month. The few days in Idaho will be tough with food-pushing mom and wanting to visit our favorite restaurant, but other than that I hope to eat sensibly. Hoping isn’t doing and I know that. I’ve got to get with the program already!
Hope all is well in your corner.
