Inch by inch
Thanks for waiting, everyone, while Blogger had its malfunction today. I feel like this should be much better after all that waiting, but it's not. Here you go ...
Hello, Monday. I hate you.
But you’re inevitable, it seems.
How was everyone’s weekend? Did you do something fit and something fun like we talked about?
My “fit” was mowing the lawn. Uggh. At least it’s productive.
My “fun” was a walk on Sunday morning with my son up to Hemmeter’s Farm Market.
The farm market is really close to our subdivision. Its fields touch the backyards of our neighbors across the street, and used to occupy all the land where our subdivision now sits, I’m told.
When Hemmeter’s opens for the season, you know it’s summer.
So we strolled up there Sunday and got cherries, asparagus, red-skin potatoes, bananas, pears, cabbage and corn on the cob – all for $13.56.
I’m really hoping to rein in my diet a little. When I weighed this morning, I had lost 1 more pound, but I know I can be doing better, and will.
That’s 35 pounds in 14 weeks. Remember, my goal is to lose 2.3 pounds a week through the end of the year.
I’m still on goal, because 2.3 pounds times 14 weeks is 32.2 pounds.
But that little bit of breathing room I had built up is quickly disappearing. Yikes.
Anyway, after we got back from the farm market Sunday, I took our fruits and veggies inside and went to take my son out of the stroller.
“Mo! Mo!” he said, indicating he wanted “more” walking, so we walked some more around the neighborhood.
I wonder if he qualifies as a personal trainer?
