Hi fellow Sparklers!
Things are well in my world but getting busy.
We are leaving in a week for our 3-month trip. We are taking our smallish travel trailer to Michigan to visit family for 2 weeks, and then off to South Dakota and points west for a hiking and siteseeing vacation.
My husband is a geography/history major so this is "his" trip. But I am in for the ride!
I have a zillion things to do in the next week: pack clothes for cold weather, warm weather, exercising, hiking, and formal clothes for church or an unexpected funeral. TC's dad is nearly 90 and has been ailing for years so this is always on our minds.
I have to renew my license plate early, defrost the freezer, wash windows, put our internet/phone on vacation hold. My 93-year-old neighbor will turn 94 while we are gone, and we always get her a small gift certificate to the local grocery store as a gift. So I need to get there and buy a gift certificate. I have more things to do than I even know right now.
My goal: continue my fitness classes next week. If I am efficient, I can keep up my class schedule and get everything else done anyway.
My weight is holding; I'm around 139-141, which is over my ticker weight but which makes me wonder: Is being lower worth it? If I can maintain this, is it good enough? I'm still working on that question. I expect to be quite active during the next three months so we'll see. If I can keep my eating in check I can definitely lose weight. I'm just not sure (at this point) if I'm interested in doing so.
Today we walked 13 miles, and I've got over 30,000 steps. I just have to ask -- in what universe would that not be considered enough?
