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!
