I am really looking forward to having a 3 day weekend. It has been a long week, unannounced inspections at work, a doctors appointment that did not go too well, and just general exhaustion. Before anyone worries about my doctor appointment I am fine. The doctor is just really worried about my steady weight gain in the last 3 years. Funny thing is I was pretty stable before the adoption process started, coincidence? I don't think so. Anyway, she wants me to try and lose weight and come back in a couple of months. So I guess I am on a diet.
I want to loose weight for me, too, this is the heaviest I have ever been and I don't like it. So despite my leg pain (which sucks btw) I walked yesterday and the day before and plan on trying to make it a habit. I wish we had an indoor pool around, that is the easiest exercise for me. The nearest pool is in Yakima and I probably won't go by myself. But if you are local and want to head to Lyons with me a couple evenings a week for water walking, let me know.
We have also started looking up some low calorie recipes to try. I don't think our eating habits are all that bad but a combination of a few things makes it easy for me to pack on the pounds. Tonight is Caribbean chicken I started it marinating last night. Last night Jim made a beef with snow peas stir fry and stir fried asparagus, it was yummy. I still went to bed hungry, but I will get used to it, I hope.
This weekend we are hoping to be able to work in the yard. With all the rain we have been having it might be a challenge. We want to put in a sidewalk and dig out another area for a garden. If we can't work outside we have plenty of inside projects to work on as well. So it should be productive and a little relaxing.
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Do you have any plans for the 3 day weekend?
