Wellness Wednesday #34

This is the Day! This is the Day that the Lord has made, that the Lord has made! I will rejoice! I will rejoice and be glad in it! And be glad in it!
When Hubby woke me up with a good bye kiss this morning (he's so sweet and let's me sleep in since I've been having insomnia), the next thing that came to mind was this song. It's a simple little chorus. It was the theme of family Bible camp when I chose to follow Christ, July 16, 1977! What a nice way to start the day.
The day improved when I stepped on the scale! 311# Yahoo! I have been working hard at the exercising and calculated that via workouts, I exercised 16 miles in the past 7 days. That hasn't been easy either because the air quality has been in the unhealthy range due to all the California wildfires. Pray for all those people effected and especially the firefighters! We have had incredible triple digit heat. Yesterday at our house the temp reached 84* inside and that is with AC and fans going! Our outdoor thermometer is in the shade all day and it registered 110*. Yuck! It's supposed to be another scorcher again today and the projected AQI is in the unhealthy range all week.
So, today I am taking an exercise break. With the air quality I have had to increase steroid inhalers which causes my insomnia, not to mention my lungs are screaming for a break! In about 12 days we will be in Washington state at my Mom's, so at least we have that to look forward to. :o)
The frustrating part of losing weight - not being able to see where it came off! I must have lost those 2 # somewhere not visible to the human eye! I was telling my friend Shelley that it is depressing to look in the mirror with your clothes off after you have exercised so hard and see a big blob looking back at you! It's seriously discouraging. Shelley informed me that Mirror World is NOT reality! LOL What are best friends for?!
Nothing else too exciting to write about this week. I did post a picture of our healthy strawberry shortcake at My Journey To Wholeness. Please pray for me to keep focused as I am packing for our trip and preparing meals ahead for my sweet Hubby while we are gone. He has to work and will join us in August.
