Ok, so now that I have been loosened from the shackles of the Blogging A to Z Challenge (how descriptive!!) I’ve decided to plunge into another link up that I’ve been loving for a while but never joined in. It’s Week In Review thought up by the wild and crazy Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets.
In a way, it kind of figures in with what I was doing during the Challenge. I’m trying to accomplish a LOT right now and sometimes I know I don’t give myself credit for the things I do during a day or a week. This may help me see more clearly what I do accomplish. So here goes!
–Since I’m just starting out with this, I’m going to start back a bit. Last week I was invited to join in with an interesting group of people. It’s a group of photographers and we’re looking for a new way of looking at things. Gosh there’s a lot of looking there, but it’s necessary!
–I hit a very interesting milestone for myself when it comes to Weight Watchers. I haven’t talked much about how I’ve been doing since I got back from Florida. Being totally immersed in the plan down there (there were 4 of us working it together) I came back to New Jersey feeling pretty strong. Well, I was working the program so well that I started to lose weight again. I went down week by week. This past Saturday at weigh in I was 13 and a quarter pounds UNDER my goal. That makes me only 3 quarters of a pound from my Original Goal from 25 years ago! At a certain point, you’re allowed to raise your goal which I did some years ago. I never dreamed I’d be at this weight again. I’m pretty darned excited. I keeping myself motivated by working hard and trying to keep Gail and Alice motivated. I think it’s working!
–Got to spend a wonderful afternoon with some old friends who we haven’t seen in a long while. They used to be clients of mine when I was a travel agent. Bob is a phenomenal photographer and Anne is an incredible water-color artist. Ralph had Bob as a math teacher years ago at the local county college. They live way out in the country. We had lunch and spent the day catching up on life, sharing art and friendship. Quite a day.
–Much sorting and packing going on as promised! I’ve been through a lot more things in the basement and am doing my best to organize what’s going out for the yard sale as I go through things. I’m really happy with my progress in this regard.
–Saturday, Ralph and I drove to Exton, Pa to be part of an Eastern regional reunion for his Army unit. We’ve gone every year for the last 12 years to the national version of these reunions, but we’ve only had the chance to make a few of the regional ones. We had the best time. Because there are fewer people attending, we had the chance to meet some people we’d never met before and to better get to know some we already knew. It was a great short getaway. It also gave us some good information that we need and we can make use of. We’ll see how that all works out. Both Saturday and Sunday were great days for a drive. The Pennsylvania countryside is just so beautiful this time of year.
So that’s about it for my review for the week. Once I get the hang of this, I’m sure I can be more creative with it. As it is, just wanted to get my feet wet and get to hang out with the cool people sharing their Weeks in Review. I’ll be trying to make my week much more exciting so that it will look better on here!
