Getting Back To Business

Through some miracle, I have managed to maintain the weight I lost during my sickness and recuperation. It’s not because I’ve been super motivated! I started exercising on a daily basis last March and was really consistent throughout the spring and summer. But my surgery threw me for a loop and I have had a hard time getting started again. This week I have finally gotten my body off this couch, and back out on the walking circuit again – for three days in a row! My sister and I have a goal of 180 minutes per week. I still have 95 minutes to go this weekend, so we shall see whether I actually make it or not.

We have a busy weekend ahead. We will be going to Home Depot to order the dishwasher for the kitchen redo project we have coming up. We have the guy from Hickory Hill Cabinetry coming on Sunday to measure and sketch our kitchen, as well as to drop off samples so we can go choose the tile for the backsplash. My sister and I are going to a local craft fair on Sunday where I may find a Christmas gift or two. And finally, I am also hoping to be able to talk my hubby (are you reading this?) into taking me to my favorite Chinese buffet. Open-mouthed smile


  1. Have fun, sounds like a great weekend coming up. Hope you get your Chinese buffet in too!

  2. sounds like a busy weekend in your neighbourhood..hope you get the date night you want!

  3. It will all go so well having someone do the work for you! My husband would be saying he will do it himself for the next ten years!

  4. Ooh Chinese buffet. Hope you got to go :) We opted for Italian last night..a good dinner out always helps the blahs :)

  5. Glad to hear you can move around again. I bet your sister is glad you're back walking the miles. It's so much more fun when you can keep each other motivated!
