Just a quick note to my friends to say that I am still here, checking in each day and trying to keep up. Life has been quite busy, and I haven't spent quite as much time here interacting, but I'm still thinking of you and praying that you staying on track. Still checking your blogs, though you may have noticed my responses are a bit shorter.
As my caretaking job ended, I find that God has opened many new doors for opportunities, all of which are pointing me to some long range goals that I've had but had put on hold. I'm working several small jobs on a consulting basis, gaining some writing/editing/photography experience. I'm also taking a class to learn how to better use my camera and am signing up for a Digitial Photography and Photoshop class at the community college in the fall.
All the while, I'm trying to squeeze in my walking and not let the fitness lag. Somehow I'm finding it so much harder to motivate myself to get out and walk in these hot summer days, but this last week I was a bit more regular logging the fitness minutes. (I can assure you that there are few that are NOT logged, so if I'm getting them, I'm logging them!) The good news is that I have stayed within my goal weight range. The bad news is, I don't feel quite as toned as I had...it is disgusting how fast muscle can get flabby at my age! But I shan't complain. Much. It takes work.
I still sneak in extra steps whenever I can, and squats when I brush my teeth. Never let an opportunity go by...
I hope you all are doing well, staying cool, and enjoying your summer. Stay healthy!
