I haven't done a blog post in a while. Things are going well in all areas of my life. I am maintaining well and am learning new things as time goes by. My last idea was to significantly up my exercise but I learned fairly quickly that when I do that, I eat a lot more. So the end result is not weight loss. I have cut back on exercise this past week and I am eating a lot less. Exercise is good and sometimes it is a lot of fun but I am not keen enough on it to do lots without a payback. I am generally reasonably active so I am going to continue to do 10k walks but not more than one a week. It feels really good to know that I can do it easily.
Christmas at my house is a quiet season. I have my few decorations out and am enjoying them. I sent out the last of the Christmas cards and gifts on Wednesday. Christmas day will be DH and I and possibly my sister. We may go to see our eldest daughter and her family after Christmas but as of now, nothing is scheduled. A few of my regular activities (Bridge and Pickleball) have or will be cancelled because of other participant's holiday commitments but that is the norm.
We are having a lovely warm and sunny day after a week of cooler, wet, and gray days. I am going to try and get a long walk in this afternoon. I have been watching my friend's dog while she went on a cruise and she is picking the dog up this afternoon. I really need to be home when she comes so if she is late I will miss my walk.
Wishing you all a happy holiday season.
