It’s been awhile since I've written. I promised myself in beginning this that I would be inspired by SOMETHING and not just write to write. So, sometimes we settle into a routine that is not marked by unusual thoughts or circumstances. Actually, that’s a very good thing, at least it is for me.
I continue to work at my fitness program. I go to the gym and I do exercise at home also, because the orthopedic surgeon gave me some exercises to do, and while I can work them into a class when the class is doing exercises that I am FORBIDDEN (for the time being) to do, I can also just do them at home. I go to boot camps at least twice a week and have another day of “hard labor.” Haha! Then there are other days that I either just do some cardio at the gym for 30 minutes or I work my lifting in at home, because of time constraints. In all things, I MOVE! That’s the key.
It is summer and I am eating fruits and vegetables. My one medication seems to make me nauseous. I don’t know why this is, but I go in spurts. I have already changed meds and I don’t think I will again. After all, it is always temporary, so I know I’ll feel hunger again. Somehow, I always have room for a piece of cherry pie. I don’t know why that is.
The scale moves slowly BUT I can feel the changes in other places. I am not going to be graphic about this, but be assured, I know.
Stamina is still an issue. I work through this. Fundamentally, I don’t plan more than one big thing a day. There will always be housekeeping chores, and I can break them down. I am not in that place where everything has to be done on my day off! Exercise is key, but there are just some things that I don’t do. For instance, I don’t plan on traveling far, spending all day with someone, and driving home after dark. That’s too much. Going from one social event to another is too much.
Stay tuned, however. I have a road trip planned in August. We’ll call it “Thelma and Louise,” because it’s with one of my best high school and beyond friends. I have no doubt there will be stories. Most of all, I really AM looking forward to it. And I’ll probably be wonderfully exhausted.
There is much to look forward to, and I just keep on keeping on. We have a granddaughter to be born in a few months, and I don’t know how Grandma is going to wait. But wait, she will. Football season is soon upon us and the Coach’s Mom is looking forward to the fall. (By the way, the baby must not be born on a Friday. Haha!)
As I previously mentioned, there are changes going on at the gym and mostly how that affects me is in the class schedules and MY schedule. I will continue, I will continue. How I will continue is to be determined.
And you know what? Mixing it up isn't all bad, either!
