Resting and Revving Up
It was a very long weekend for me. The drive to the ocean and back took its toll on me and I’m afraid I may have contracted a form of my mother’s cold because I have the tightest chest congestion and cough going on. Plus a major fibro flare up, so I’m taking it easy for a bit.
Good news, though. I lost another two pounds at my Weight Watchers weigh in last night. That makes 12 pounds in 5 weeks! I am so freakin’ ecstatic. I was so worried that I’d messed up this week with the banquet food we ate, but then, I tried really hard to stick to the program, and I guess I did! I even enjoyed a few bites of some heavenly chocolate mousse pie. That walking on the beach must have helped.
My daughter, who attends Weight Watchers with me and is really doing great herself, said that if my sister makes it up here to see me in July, we (my sister and I) can both go out on the town and be two hot mamas with no husbands. Watch out!
As soon as I start to feel more rested, I’ll be gearing up to continue working on marketing my freelance writing and editing business, getting some interim paid work, as well as finish up the projects around the house. My youngest daughter has promised to help me finish the painting, and I want to get the sewing room set up. It’s almost there. I just need a place to put all the crap important stuff that’s on my cutting table. I have a pretty spring top in mind to start with. It is really calling my name, especially now that I’m getting my waistline back.
Meanwhile, while I’m resting, I’ll be perusing all those new books I just inherited. Hmmm. Which one to start with? They’re all good.
