March has been a month of contrasts! A week of regular exercise and eating habits would be followed by a week of little exercise and eating foods that weren't as healthy as they could have been. This wasn't the way I had planned things, but as often happens, life got in the way.
During one of the weeks that I was derailed, I had several 18 and 19 hours days which were spent in traveling to visit a sick family member and taking care of his personal and financial affairs. On the days I was at home, the traveling had taken its toll, and I had to push myself to get things done at home, so exercise and meal planning moved to a lower priority.
Last week I started spring cleaning, and needed to prepare for a family visit, so a lot of my exercise was moving furniture, scrubbing floors, and pushing a steam cleaner across the carpets. Spring cleaning isn't finished, but the next part of the project will be fun! I need to clean out my closet and chest of drawers. In the last few days, I've discovered that I need to get rid of some of my clothes because they are way too big. It seems strange, but the clothes seemed to fit okay during the first 20 pounds of weight loss, but these last 10 has resulted in me looking like the local bag lady! When the closets are cleaned, I guess I need to go shopping and see if I can refill them with clothes to go with me through the next 30 pounds!
