So they said it was gonna get warmer this week.  Well, it’s been that and more –  hot and humid – in the 90s plus.  That’s Iowa for ya…ever changing weather.  So my Thankful Thursday post is being typed in humidity lol

1.  I had to work the Labor Day holiday weekend at the Welcome Center and our schedule always gets a little changed up when a holiday is involved.  This just meant I had to work an extra 8 hours and therefore had less time to work out and get other stuff done.  It wasn’t so bad…the area churches set up a table for 2 of the 3 days and served free coffee and goodies (free will donations) to raise money for the community food pantry.  It was interesting as I got to visit with people I knew and hadn’t seen in awhile – and made friends with some I didn’t 🙂  It also helped pass the time lol

2.  I also had to work at my part-time job and for some reason the lawyers had quite a bit for me to do so I didn’t get all of my work done today.  I’ll have to go back in next Monday for a few hours.

3.  Remember the traveler named Tony who came in last week with the reply that he was still mean, ornery and ugly?  Well, this week a traveler named Robert said about the exact same thing when I asked him how he was doing.  He answered, “Mean, ugly and ornery – in that order.” and that of course made me laugh.


On the Fitness and Nutrition Front

4.  I’m still doing my power walks and dancing with Shaun and his CIZE peeps for my workouts.  As for the nutrition part of my journey, I’m still working on portion control.  *sigh*  Maybe I should stop making dishes as wonderful as this pork steak stir fry with kale and oyster sauce.

Thankful Thursday

Nah!  I just need to control myself!
