What I've Been Doing

Last week I had the whole week off work for vacation. It was wonderful! We decided not to go on a trip since gas prices have gotten so high. Instead, we got new carpet in our bedroom. It's a huge room and was a major ordeal just to get prepared for the carpet. But now the room is nice and clean, and the carpet looks great. And my closet got cleaned out because it had to be carpeted also and I had to get everything out of the way.

Saturday I went to another family reunion, this time for my mother's side of the family. It was nice -- I saw relatives that I don't get to see often and I met some relatives for the first time. This week it's back to work which hasn't been so bad. The Alabama heat and humidity have come back full blast! I'm afraid my walking outside will soon be coming to an end. I'll have to start using the treadmill which I don't look forward to. I have good news about my walking experiment -- I have lost 10 pounds which was about the amount I was hoping to lose. I didn't have to change what I was eating -- I just had to be consistent with my daily walking. Now I'll need to continue it for the rest of my life if I want to stay at this weight. I actually now weigh what my drivers license says my weight is!

Good job on the weight loss and your consistency in walking!

I know what you mean about the heat. It's hot here too.

Enjoy your new carpet. I'm enjoying the cleanness of our extra room, Caleb's room, and living room. It's so nice to be clean!

That would be my goal right now to weigh what my d.l. says I weigh. I am walking and it is coming off slowly.

Yahoo! Congratulations on your weight loss! Yeah for you! I love your idea about having a goal to weigh what your DL says!

What do you mean... you won't be able to walk outside? It's freezing here! I'm literally wearing my winter coat today here in Portland... please, can I order some of your heat and humidity? and fast!

Yea Kathy! Way to go. I bet your room looks lovey now.

Thanks for checking in on me from time to time. I had to take a little blogging break because my Dad and daughter were staying at my house in our guest/computer room. I felt funny sitting down blogging in the room my dad was staying in.

Blessings,

Lori
