First, I feel like I am making progress in my every day life. Today I watched my granddaughter at home again. Between feeding, entertaining, changing diapers, I was able to move a book shelf, sort through some books, and clean some more in my pantry.
Our local Half Price Books store is having a collection of books for kids, and I found some that I want to donate to that. And then I have other books that I want to keep, and some that need to be prepared to donate (Names have to be scratched off)
In the pantry, I threw away nearly an entire garbage can of expired food. I also got a few more things to donate for the food bank, and cleaned out more of what is in the cupboard. I have made a lot of progress in that regard.
But really the biggest progress I seem to be making is that I am having lots more energy, and it feels great. I am very encouraged by that, and I haven't lost that much weight. But according to my Curves measurements I have lost 7 lbs, and more importantly I lost 2.5 lbs of body fat. That means I am gaining muscle, and I can feel it in my body too.
I did not exercise today in the traditional way, but I took care of a baby for 11 hours, had a visit with my son and his wife and my grandson, cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. So I feel that today was a successful day.
