I know, it's been September for a while already, but I'm working on getting into a routine again after holidays and, well, it's just becoming September for me!
This whole thing has been a bummer and is getting me discouraged. BUT, I was able to go camping for 2 weeks even though I went with trepidation. When we made our reservations in the spring I didn't envision I'd be dealing with a wonky knee! I enjoyed doing a lot of reading (completed three books!) as well as working on Baby's lifebook (we have to make a scrapbook of the children we care for's journey with us) and fiddling around with the settings on my new camera. Not much walking or hiking or daily 1 hr walks like I usually do, but I was able to go. And THAT was good!

32 yrs since our 1st date!
In weight news I have been struggling. I have been trying to learn Trim Healthy Mama and implementing my new-found knowledge. Definitely a learning curve but I know that once I understand it, I can do it for life. It's not a temporary "diet".
I've also been wearing my pedometer daily again and, even though I can't even go for a fraction of my typical 5-miles/day walks, I am trying to move as much as I can. I wore my pedometer on our holidays and aimed for 5,000 steps per day. I had quite a few days where I almost or did reach 10,000 steps! That was without "exercising", just moving little by little and making a conscious effort to do so (and drinking a lot of water which required multiple walks to the washroom which was about 300 steps one way, lol). I did use our camper toilet when I wasn't up to walking the 300+ steps.
I'll leave you with a few pics of my life over the past month! I hope to have good baby news for you soon! (and our fostering journey continues - apparently adoption isn't as imminent as we were led to believe ... sad for our kiddo but great for us! we love him so much!)
