I was going to post for Fitness Friday last week, but plans changed.
Evan was home sick for two days.
And then my dad's cousin passed away on Tuesday.
He was like a brother to my dad, so we always called him "uncle Jim" even though he was really our second cousin.
The funeral was on Thursday.
He was 68 years old and hadn't been doing well the past year.
So truthfully I wasn't shocked, but it was still extremely sad because 68 is so young.
He was truly a nice man with a great sense of humor and will be missed.
As far as my fitness goals, I am still focusing on staying away from fast food, exercising 4-6 times a week and taking my vitamins. I haven't decided on a goal for this week, so I think I will just continue on with these three goals and pick a new one on this upcoming Friday.
And remember in my One Little Word post when I mentioned that Evan had decided we should also pick one word a week for our family as a whole to focus on? (In addition to my word Peace)
This week our word is Understanding because he thinks it would be nice to try and listen and understand each other. He said sometimes he feels we don't always take the time to really listen and understand what a person is trying to say. I think it's a brilliant word for the week. And a good one to bring to mind when talking to each other. :)
Also, this past weekend was my annual Girlfriends Scrapbook Getaway.
I packed up and headed to a local hotel with my sister-in-law and a few other friends to scrapbook Friday through Sunday. It's hosted by a one of the women who owned our local scrapbook store and her friend.
Thanks for stopping by today!
