Packing it on

I've gained about 15 pounds since March. My eating hasn't changed much if any but no swimming is taking its toll. In my head I am appalled and feel like I should fix a snack and sit down and think about it. Swimming would be an easy fix but it will be months before it's even an option. Months means 15 more pounds. I should change my eating and I should get more exercise. And neither is the least bit interesting to me.

I'm going to have to get up close and personal with the treadmill. That's just the only option that appears realistic. I need to figure out a scheme that will net me the required movement in a schedule that I will not abandon. Fortunately, I've gotten into the lovely habit of listening to my book while I walk in the mornings so that will be easy to translate to the treadmill and may help with the project.

Today I will get on that sucker at least two times for at least 5 minutes each. And one of those times must be after 3 pm.

They added photos to the listing for the unit below me. Interesting to see my home in white and beige. The bones are the same but there are some differences. They have built in air conditioning. I have looked at this a couple of times but, the show stopper for me is that butt ugly compressor out on the terrace. They also have made a proper room (walls, french doors) out of the room I use for my sewing room. Those french doors are lovely but it means that half the room must remain empty so you can get the damn things open. It's a tiny room to start with.

The rest is paint and wood trim. Interesting to see. It will also be interesting to see what it sells for and how fast. I linked photo to the real estate listing.

The yarn project continues today and I have one project in mind that will be so much more fun because of it. It's a sampler shawl. Instead of digging through the boxes of yarn for each row, I'll just be able to walk over to the shelf and pluck off a perfect suspect. Lather, rinse, repeat. Very cool.

I've got several deliveries arriving today from Amazon. Most are for me but Biggie gets a new litter box. The last new litter box is just too shallow. Even with the rim, he flings that stuff everywhere. Fortunately, he's fine with cheap litter boxes and the current one can be easily converted into a catch all for under the bathroom sink (after I wash it out, of course).

Ok, time to get dressed and get on with the day. Maybe even get the first 5 minute treadmill walk in.
