    Good morning @LaurieWrobo ! I just noticed something in recording your steps for the week...you and I tend to have similar walking/step patterns! Our numbers are quite close. Do you use Fitbit or another brand of step tracker? Would love to add you as a friend on Fitbit so we can do challenges sometime...let me know! I think I'm listed as JessicaK on Fitbit...email is jakrall@cox.net so please add me! Others on the team are welcome to add me to, but please send me a message and let me know you're doing so. I don't automatically accept all requests...as there are some STRANGE requests I've seen...it's a little scary...

    I've been on vacation this week...was busy is some regards as I tried to do some much needed maintenance to my house, go to the doctor, get something accomplished every day, but still take some much needed down time as work has been hectic lately and I really NEEDED this break. Haven't been posting much this week, so wanted to check in on everybody...how's your week been? Yesterday was a scorcher in Virginia and today is 20 degrees cooler, so much better and breathable! Starting to clean out my kitchen cabinets, go through and get rid of clutter, box up the keepables and get ready for my kitchen renovation which will start in the latter part of July. Question of the day...just how many knives and plastic storage containers does one need?! OMG I have a lot of stuff! Will be good to let go of some of it!! Wish I had time for a yard sale, but that would be more work...and I don't have the energy for it.

    Well, hope everyone is enjoying a wonderful start to their weekend! Hope to catch up with all of you soon!! Enjoy your day!
    Jessica :smile:

    Hi Jessica! Wow, what a busy week. Mine was okay, work is very stressful (I'm a department administrator at Yale) and we're hiring people who all need visas and the international stuff can get complicated. The good news is I'm turning a bedroom into a home gym and I finally got the last item for it - a recumbent bike. Plan on putting it together today (fingers crossed as I'm not the most handy, lol!)

    I love to hear people's decluttering story and laughed out loud when I saw your "question of the day" :) It's amazing how much stuff one can amass over time. I'm working on a clothing purge myself - I have a ton of clothes in a size 8 that I know, even with a significant weight loss, I'll never fit in again. It's time to let that stuff go!

    Have a great weekend, all! :)

    Hi Susanna, So sorry about everyone in Montana dealing with the heat and the floods, etc. I spoke with a lovely woman in Montana when I called Bank of America about my savings account yesterday afternoon. She was about my age. Her family is trying to get her to move to South Carolina (closer to them), but she and her husband are staying put! That's true Montana grit! Prayers for all and best wishes to you! (Hope that swelling goes down soon!)

    Thanks for the well wishes! The swelling is going down a tiny bit. I can actually see a little bit of my ankle on my left foot this morning - for over a week now, my feet, ankles & legs look like tree stumps - crazy!

    @LaurieWrobo Sent you an email...hope you got it! I'll try my best to keep up with you!! :smiley:

    I did a challenge a couple of weeks ago and ended up doing nearly 15k steps in a day and I suffered for a week afterward, so I can push, but I can't push so much that I get down and can't work. Wish I wasn't so darned competitive sometimes...it's hard to tell myself no! LOL

    Hope you're enjoying your Saturday!
