Good morning... how are we doing this morning? It's been kind of hard to get started, so I'm running a bit late this morning, but at least I can tell you for sure that we've got a bright sunny day going for us - at least for the time being. We've been having showers/T-storms come through in the afternoons, so I wouldn't I wouldn't be surprised if we get some later today, but that's Florida, so we kind of expect those to pop up.
This has been a different kind of week for me... my neighbor and walking partner left on Tuesday to go back to OR for the summer, so I'm kind of at loose ends for right now. This happens every spring and it takes a few days for me to get back into the swing of not getting up and heading out for that walk every morning (or most mornings). I miss having her to talk to, as much as I miss the exercise I get from the daily walks. Yes, of course, there's always e-mail, but it's just not the same as having having someone to talk to and getting that immediate feedback.
Anyway, I'll get used to it over the next few days and by the time she returns in the fall, I'll have to get used to having her here again. lol In the meantime, I'll renew my resolve to get more work done in my shop. I have a few projects I want to get made, so I'll start working on those - that will help to not miss my neighbor as much, as well.
Weight-wise, I've stayed exactly the same as last week, which is a surprise, considering that I've not done anything to speak of for exercise. In addition to that, I've eaten more than I'd been eating and I've been having trouble with digestive processes, etc, which is probably due to lack of exercise.
I know we've talked about exercise not being a way to lose weight, but for me, I certainly tend to lose more weight faster when I exercise than when I don't. Of course, exercising builds muscle, but it has other benefits for the body as well.
I went for a 30-day ultrasound on my legs on Friday... the procedures went well and everything continues to look good; however, my feet/legs have begun to swell again with the warm weather, though not as much as they had been previously. I'm also getting muscles cramps again in my calves and feet. The procedures were supposed to alleviate, both, the swelling and the cramps, so I'm not sure what the doctor will say about those things when I see him on Friday.
Anyway, that's my week and my husband is waiting to go to our local weekend flea Market, so I'm going to cut this short and go get ready to go.
I hope you've had a successful week and met whatever goal(s) you might have set for yourself.
~~Wishing everyone a wonderful, successful week~~
