Good morning... How's everyone this morning? It looks to be another hot day in my world, so I'm not sure there will be a lot of excitement going on...
I've been in the process of taking up a new hobby, so I've been busy collecting tools and materials, watching "how to" videos, etc this past week. Because it's been so hot outside, I've been working in the house rather than in my shop and I don't really have any place to do this kind of work, so I've set up a "workstation" in my dining room on an extra desk. That means I have a mess... lol I've tried to consolidate all the tools and supplies as well as I can, but you know how that goes!! Anyway, I do need to fix up a spot in my shop for this stuff and move it all out there when it gets cool enough or maybe even before... :-)
Anyway, because I've been sitting on my duff watching training videos and researching/ordering tools, I haven't been moving around/exercising like I should be, either. We know what that means, don't we? :-)
I have been eating better - so I thought. Yeah, really I have - more veggies and fruit, not the pasta and bread, potatoes, etc that we ate on vacation. We went to Sam's Club the other day and I bought one of their rotisserie chickens - tasty and easy to slice up, heat and toss on the table quickly, right? Yeah, right!! I noticed after a couple meals of it, my feet were beginning to swell again and it took a while to figure out what caused it - yep, you guessed it - the chicken. I stopped eating it and some of the swelling went down overnight, but my fingers are still very swollen and painful... I can't believe how susceptible I am to salt/sodium - especially, regular table salt, though I can use the pink Himalayan salt lightly... how odd is that?
Anyway, I'm only down 1 pound from last week, so I'm not very happy with that. This is still vacation weight/swelling/bloat I'm trying to get rid of and I didn't think it would take this long to do it. We've been home for 10 days - of course, I can't really count the day we got here (the 2nd) since it was late in the day and I can't count today since it's early morning - can I get by with saying I've really only had 8 days to get back on track? lol Admittedly, even at that, I should be doing better than I am... So here's new resolve to kick it in gear and do better this week.
So... that's me - how about y'all? What's going on your lives and how are you doing? Some of you are in full swing getting kids back to school. I know tomorrow is starting day for many in my state but I think some states don't start until after Labor Day; I suppose there are quite a few in between... Anyway, let's hear your story; I hope it's better than mine...
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
