Progress This Week!
Monday, August 22, 2011
I weighed in this weekend and was thrilled with a 3 pound loss. I am less than half a pound to my first mini-goal!
My reward came in the mail, a gorgeous sterling silver and lapis pendant from eBay, but I can't put it on until I kick that last pound to mini-goal. I am SO looking forward to wearing it.
I'll be doing PT today and I'm not looking forward to it, although the results it produces are worth it. My pain level is better since I started; the back pain and muscle spams in the morning have been reduced and the right leg is not quite as stiff. I'm gonna put on some fast music and really do it to it.
The cooler weather up here has fall (and winter) on my mind. It's my favorite time of the year. I always seem to have more energy in the fall. It doesn't seem to last very long here in the Finger Lakes, though!
Winter preparations are underway here. Aidan is making arrangements for the chimney guy to come out and inspect and clean the stove and fireplace chimneys. We still need to buy another 6-7 face cord of wood to get all stocked up. Don't want to have to run the gas furnace except as a last resort! Aidan will be stacking the wood this week and I'll be cooking and making coffee.
We are both doing well on Spark. Doing it with someone you live with is such a boost! Eating smaller meals more often is helping, too. I am combing online for new recipes, especially for the slow cooker. I want to make sure I don't get bored.
Life is good!
