I was doing really well for a while there. Don't know why, but I seem to have gone through a "burned out" stage...I didn't eat well, didn't exercise regularly (or even want to) and barely tracked anything. Blech! And of course, I have paid for it on the scale and in how I feel.
My lack of caution allowed my blood sugars to climb..not good. And of course, my body reported back...I have a canker sore in my mouth, I had a few nights of leg cramps and poor sleep...and the ringing in my ears got louder. All right already!!! I got the point!
Today has been better, though not good exactly either with food or exercise. I AM trying to get myself refocussed.
I also had the unpleasant surprise of having my computer zapped by lightening on Wed...pretty much AFTER all the storms had gone through. I am using my elderly laptop....and today IT suddenly went on a high alert security upset...which effectively stopped me from doing ANYTHING. My wonderful son in law was able to get whatever was happening resolved and I am able to be back online. I have also lined up someone to see if anything is salvageable from my big computer.
My final bit of news is one I wish I had photos for...I think. About a week or so ago, I asked my husband if he would consider taking a dancing lesson. AND HE SAID YES! I was astonished!!! There is a group beginners class on Thursdays so we went. (DH has applied for a new job and since we hadn't heard yet, I figured we had better go before the job kicked in..then who knows when we could go!)
We learned the most basic elementary steps of the waltz, the rumba and swing. On Saturday we had the "free" private lesson to practice and improve on what we had learned. It was fun doing it together ...more than DH had expected. He said it was easier with music. lol This is the sales pitch lesson...and to my delight...DH signed us up for three more private lessons and that includes three "parties" which are really just social dance times to practice with instructors there to help. SO, Tuesday evening we go again!!!
One interesting thing I discovered is that I hardly have ANY shoes with leather soles...except for little dress shoes that I would never be able to keep on dancing! We shall see if I need dancing shoes "down the road".
