Several things got me off-track recently. When my weight hit a number I hadn't seen in several years, I knew it was time to address my gluttony and laziness (well, let's call it what it is)! Back to logging my fitness and food (whether good or bad). Check my trackers if you want, and comments are welcome.

What was your project - you didn't say. Glad you were able to complete it.

Not a major redo in the bath - just having the popcorn ceiling scraped off & the ugly, peeling wallpaper removed & everything repainted. This is something we talked about doing when we bought the house in 1997 so as you can imagine it's only gotten worse. Would love to do more but this is all I can afford now. The final coat of paint is going on today so I'll post a picture when it's done. Don't really have any before pictures but I do like the after - for a small master bath anyway.

Good for you getting out and taking a walk. That's always refreshing. I got a little walking in today and we planted a bunch of Canna bulbs in pots, getting ready for Spring. It felt good to get my hands in the soil.

Have a wonderful week, and keep up the wonderful job you are doing!
