After 10 days in a 23 ft RV with limited wifi access, 2 dogs and 1 husband, I either need a bigger RV or an attitude adjustment! We completed our retirement house purchase and drove 225+ miles back home in a rain storm. Mail, laundry and chores need attention. I'd like to see some of my friends as well, but in 4 days we hit the road again for Thanksgiving and a long week-end. My "to do" list is overwhelming at the moment; I'm contemplating a bubble bath.
I'm also a few pounds over my maintenance weight and can't seem to move the scale down. My activity level is fairly good - I deliberately exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes every day. I suspect that my body has gotten used to my usual exercise - from what I've been reading I need to change things up. I read an article on circuit training and will see if I can create a new daily routine. I'm still logging food and mostly staying within calorie range - going into the holidays I'd be more comfortable without these 4 extra pounds. The sad fact is, that as soon as I spend less time devoted to food planning, exercise, and Sparking, the weight starts to creep back up!
Patience is not my strength. We have to remodel the new house in order to move and it's clear that will take at least 3-4 months, and probably longer, since we'll be traveling back and forth. We've started downsizing and have made some progress. - I need to remember "slow and steady wins the race."
