A week of little to report.

Another week has come and gone and I've managed to maintain the majority of my healthy choices despite the challenges that come with a prolonged head-cold, reduced energy, and a few days on the road.

During the worst of part of my cold, I struggled to get out and spend time. I think I had less than 7500 steps recorded on two of those days. The worst part was the guilty feeling I had for not honoring the commitment I'd made to myself.

Ironically, just five or six months ago walking for 7500 steps would have been an accomplishment to celebrate. Times have changed. I've boosted my daily step-count goal to 13,500 and don't feel satisfied if I fall below 100,000 steps during a week. I've notice that I usually run out of time for my walks before I run out of tired. That is, I seldom feel physically tired from my walks anymore. I guess that's a good sign for stamina and endurance.

I spent Wednesday thru Friday traveling to and from WSU for meetings of the WSU Foundation Board of Trustees and the College of Education Advisory Board. From there, I drove to our home on Lake Chelan for a weekend of relaxation with family. As a result of all that time away from home I haven't been able to weigh myself. I've tried to watch my caloric intake but it will be a surprise to see what the scale has to say.

As you can see, this weeks message is somewhat limited. I could blame that on the head cold, but I think it's just a combination of circumstances. I'll be back on track next week.
