One week to go!

Monday, December 03, 2012

I got moved out of my apartment last week and am now at my step mom's house for this last week before flying back to Africa. I have plenty to do, including sorting through things from my apartment that I just threw into boxes. I just keep working on projects.

This morning I will see my Orthopedic doctor for my six month Post knee replacement visit. It is actually only 5 1/2 months but it's close enough. I got in more steps last week than I had been so that was good for my knee. I went swimming on Saturday too and should do so again a few times but I do not know if I will have time.


My eating has not been good. I'm doing a lot of stress eating plus I have been going to restaurants often. My weight fluctuates in a 3-4 pound range.


Today's Positives:
1. I'm finally moved out of my apartment.
2. I was interviewed at my church service yesterday, as a farewell.
3. I'm making progress on getting my "projects" but still have much to do before flying on December 11th.

Have a good day! emoticon

    Have a very safe trip but I am wondering why not have Xmas at home and then return to Africa?

    Good Luck at your Dr. appointment. I hope you have a Dr. in Africa that can look after you if you need help.
