Good day for me today. Fought the urge to eat a ton this afternoon after working outside until 1pm, and just had a nice plum and a flavoured water drink, so pretty pleased with that. Next week I will start setting some proper goals!

And that shed looks great, what a transformation!

I could walk for hours and be okay, after a few minutes of jumping rope I'm ready to throw in the towel!
Thanks Mike, Jumping rope is much harder as an adult (@ 53) then as a kid. I jump till I can't (a few minutes), then walk a few laps in a "circuit" through three rooms in my house, jump again, then walk in the opposite direction. Throw in a few burpees and a some 'almost' push ups for good measure. Twenty minutes of that and I'm exhausted.

When I try to crossing the ropes when jumping it really wipes me out. Haven't fallen on my face yet, thankfully. It's kinda like the difference between walking on a flat surface and walking up and down hills. Even though it's the same exercise, it's a whole different experience!

Nice shed.

& I know what you mean by tiled out, or should I say "we" know. I amped the start of my weight loss by carrying slate off the palettes we had delivered from India. Over 800 sq feet of smooth honed slate ~ 2 tons total. I laid out the pattern for my honey to set in place. Arms are in much better shape now than before, but I Still can't do those push ups. And the floor does look awesome! Even though, I do my jumping a carpeted room.

Mike - OMG that is a beautiful shed!!! Nice work! Now you need a cat to keep the rats under control . DH and I lived several years in a neighborhood with rat problems - we think it was because the neighbor had goats and they were always in the feed. Kitty did a nice job of helping out. Now we live in the foothills where there are owls, hawks, snakes, and coyotes constantly on the prowl... no rats (and we have to keep the cat locked-up because the tables have turned on her in a very bad way ).

Mern, Hope, and Mary - So glad ya'll are coming back! Mern, don't forget to bring your whip .
