I got a late start today. That seems to be the pattern lately. Maybe I am catching up on sleep. Anyway, I am headed for the treadmill.
************************************************************
Daily stats:
Type: Treadmill

Route: Manual controls
Time: 30 minutes
Average heart rate: 117
Max heart rate: 140
Calories burned: 218
Up .2 from last Saturday


The workout went well, but I am reminded about how out of shape I have become. What used to be a breeze is now a struggle. Harold plans to start working out when he retires. He has 2 more weeks. Then we will be fighting for treadmill time. LOL! Not really.

I stayed the course pretty well yesterday. Tonight we have the Sodbusters dinner that was canceled a couple of weeks ago. Today is a carb down day so it will be either steak or a salad.

The decluttering is going slowly, but it's going. Consistency is the key. I've made some inroads in the basement. Harold and Anna helped me get the soggy rug out from under my work table. I have to figure something else out because my back and legs just can't take being on the cement floor for any length of time. The website and blog traffic are both way down. That's pretty normal for this time of year. It's almost time for us to start planning for the Shepherd Maple Syrup festival. Well, I'm off to tackle the laundry

Word of the day:
Christmas Weekday
Gospel

Jn 1:29-34

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
He is the one of whom I said,
‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me
because he existed before me.’
I did not know him,
but the reason why I came baptizing with water
was that he might be made known to Israel.”
John testified further, saying,
“I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from the sky
and remain upon him.
I did not know him,
but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain,
he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”


God bless our troops!
