The end of another week and it’s Rock Star time!
Being away from home presents special challenges to those of us with weight “issues”, so this week’s shout-outs go to some folks who traveled recently and maintained their dignity along the way:
Jane (Jane is Weighing In) went to Florida and stayed close enough to plan that she had only a fractional gain. Those of
us y’all who have undone a month’s worth of loss in a single week of vacation know what a success this was. (Okay, okay, “us”.)
Debby (Debby Weighs In) planned her little heart out and had a (mostly) healthy-eating long weekend away. (There’s pictorial evidence of a brownie, but it’s a small brownie and not a whole pan.) Debby’s also traveling in new circles as a columnist for The Quilt Life magazine!
And finally, a shout out to my Memaw, who doesn’t have a blog but does possess a fine VHS collection of Mama’s Family episodes. Memaw had to make a little trip to the hospital this week. She never really got over a bronchial infection she had during the holidays, and some fluid had built up in her lungs. That’s gone now, and she’s at home, feeling better, and already planning to garden next week. I’m conferring Rock Star status on her for not complaining too much during her confinement. Just the normal Memaw amount.
What did YOU rock this week? I’ll give you ///back pats/// if you share!
I’m giving myself a pat on the back (///) for exercise, especially today’s strength training workout in which I did almost 100 squats (split between dumbbell swings and squat-rows) and also added in the new-to-me single-stance dumbbell deadlift. (Looking at the picture, I think I did it wrong, though. I can’t remember in which hand I held the dumbbell. Will pay attention next time. )
Oprah interviewed Brené Brown recently, and the first part of the interview airs Sunday on the OWN network. If you’re like me and don’t have OWN, you can apparently access a simulcast on the page I just linked.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy weekend!
