First off, Boys and girls, Husband and I took the week as vacation. I cannot tell you how happy I am to not be going into the office for a whole week.
First thing that I did on my day off was step on the scale for my Monday morning weigh-in. To my surprise, it returned another smaller number. I'm now -2 of my goal of -8 by early February. Unbelievable. This next week is going to be a challenge with Thanksgiving happening, but it's all a matter of portion control. At least that's how I'm approaching it.
And a double cheer on this last one. The kids happily bagged up leaves from the backyard so they could earn the extra money they needed to buy Guitar Hero for the Wii (they had most of it already, but needed a little more). And then they bought the game which has turned out to be a lot of fun. While I have time off work, I just may spend time unleashing my inner Guitar Hero. LOL.
My knees and hip continue to bother me. As a result, my recent runs have been shorter and slower and with more walking. I probably ought to see someone if still an issue next week. Sigh.
We're in the market for a new water softener (btw, this is probably the root cause for why we had to repair the dishwasher).
