I walked a bit on my treadmill on Sunday (30 min), then yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed my 40 min walk - I walked every street in the subdivision. Just now I finished 50 minutes on the treadmill, going varying speeds in hopes of 'tricking' my muscles. So far this week, so good. Now if I can only get myself to strength training. (sigh) I know I SHOULD, but am having trouble finding the "just get up off yer keester and DO it!" It's raining today, or I would have walked outside again. While walking on the treadmill gives me the accurate figures of speed and incline, walking outdoors is more interesting.
This morning my DH has been enjoying his monthly 'breakfast w/the guys' (they are all retired from his old office). I'm glad he has that outlet.
I anticipate spending a quiet day today. Yesterday we joined the kindergarteners for "Kid Writing" and will do so again tomorrow. They are so delightful, and it's been nice to see the growth in them over the course of the school year. One painfully shy boy has come out of his shell quite a bit, and now voices what he wants to write, instead of our having to think up something for him. He's still a bit shy, but just not quite so much.
Nothing particularly earth-shaking to comment on; just wanted to touch base w/y'all. Have a great day.

Even tho' a front came thru last eve and today's high did NOT reach the predicted 60 degrees, AND the sun was mostly hidden by clouds, AND the wind was blowing, my walking buddy and I took our 30 minute walk around her neighborhood. The wind (especially) made it feel cold, but we kept w/it and both are glad we made the effort.
We have our grandsons tonight and will have the boys until tomorrow eve as well. Their Mom is going to enjoy a ladies' retreat weekend, and their Dad has to work tomorrow, so have the pleasure of keeping the boys. I am glad we're available to help out.
Have a restful night and a wonderful weekend, yall.

I am recovering - not yet well, but recovering. I'm so thankful. I haven't exercised as much this week as I 'should have' if I had been healthy, but I'm also not over-doing exercise. I did clean the kitten room at the shelter this morning, but have a quiet afternoon planned. I do plan to go to my stitching group tonight.
It's another beautiful day today, with temps due to rise into the 80's again. But a front comes thru later and we're due rain. Tomorrow's hi is expected to be normal/usual/average for this time of year - around 60 degrees. Is it any wonder I got sick?
We had our grands on Monday, and will have them Fri night to Sat eve. Then again all weekend the next weekend. Whew! But they are a blessing to us. Little League is resuming, so we'll be wrapped up w/that these two weekends.
Have a wonderful day, y'all.

I was rather tired last evening, but chalked it up to the excitement of having everyone over to dinner......was real nice that even B could be here.....too often he has to work on holidays.
I awoke (after sleeping poorly) with a VERY sore throat, swollen glands, stopped up ears and nose. Sounds like another cold, doesn't it?!! Well, I back to doctoring it myself, hoping I don't have develop a bacterial infection, too.
We had both (local) grandsons today as they were still out of school on Easter vacation. They're such sweethearts, expect maybe when they decide to fight. I'm staying out of those as much as I can, because they need to learn to settle their differences themselves. But I do still sometimes speak up, "Settle down and keep your hands to yourselves" or something similar.
Here's hoping the rest of the week sees me getting WELL and feeling much, much better. I'm NOT a good patient, and I was sick just last month - I wonder if my body didn't get the memo saying I am to stay well awhile....just a thought. LOL
Don't feel sorry for me - I'm taking care of myself, and expect to keep losing weight. But, this week's weigh-in was a disappointment - all measurements and weight remained identical to a week ago. Oh well, bound to happen.
Hanging in there,
