I went all day without my pedometer!
Attaching it to my bod is the first thing I do when I get up each morning. I did it, but when I went to get dressed, I laid it on my jewelry box, and proceeded to not clip it to my pants. Never crossed my mind again until I came home tonight and undressed to take my shower... At first I panicked thinking I had lost it, but then I checked where I got dressed. There it sat! Whew! Sigh of relief! I guess I can wear it until bed...so I won't be totally without steps to record.
It just shows I get into a routine and if I am distracted, I am no longer on autopilot. This is scary to admit!
Time to shake things up a bit! Not sure how just yet, but I think this is a "direction" for April. I'm too set in my SPARKin' ways, and I need to bring some variety and "newness" into my plan. I'm going to be looking for opportunities to get out of my comfort zone for April.
It will be a full 6 months of Sparking for me on April 1, 2012. Regroup and re-evaluate time!

A bit of soreness here, and catch there... nothing to complain about!
I had my meals already planned, so it all went off without at hitch.
Now I am ready to call it a day and go to bed. Everything is staged for in the morning. I am prepared and looking forward to a new day!

I am not a fan of DST... my body goes more by sun-time than "government trying to confuse us" time.
Thus, I did not sleep well. DH took up the slack and wrangled and rotated Corgis this morning so I could sleep later. Sweet man!
We finally got to running errands about noon. After we did that, I came home and put on my gardening clothes, and hit the natural area to de-weed and pull ivy. An hour later, I had it looking pretty good, and ready for pine needles on Saturday. I also used muscles I haven't used in awhile... OUCH!
I overdid it on the treadmill yesterday(and the Wii), so I was slow this morning anyway from that. But I used the Wii for 15 minutes this morning, once I got moving. I figured the gardening was enough for the day's exercise. I took a shower and decided to chill. The longer I sat, the stiffer I got. In my brilliance, I thought if I walked on the treadmill it would limber me up again. It DID get my blood warmed, but now I feel as if I have been hit by a truck! I took my evening meds. The pain pill should kick in about 10 minutes from now. In order to sleep better, I believe I will do a few stretches before I actually get into the bed.
It is going to be an interesting morning ahead... There isn't a muscle I have not moved today.
I ate well today. I accomplished a lot around the house, and my natural area is lovely and clean looking. I drank more than my usual water for the day. All is prepped and ready for my leaving for work. Lunch is packed.
Here's hoping I can move in the AM!

Thanks be to God! This was a nice weekend.
My BFF brought me a treadmill, and I have enjoyed using it! I used my Wii each day. My weight is a solid 196.0. I have eaten well, even with eating out at Fatz Cafe! Portions and drinking water make a huge difference.
Changing the clocks yesterday afternoon made a difference, too. I was up to go to 8 am Mass without feeling tired, or missing the hour we lost.
I spent today chilling... read some, ate when I was hungry, and exercised. I did not need a nap.
My body hurts from the fibro, and the weather change has my joints "out of sorts". Circumstances that can be dealt with. Overall, good.
I had my solitary trip to Wally World after Mass. Very nice. Relaxing. Definitely adding this to my list of things to continue after Lent.
The week ahead looks to be busy, but well planned at this point.
I am ready to face whatever comes, and be thankful. The is no situation that I cannot handle if I will turn to God first.
This IS going to be a SPARKling week!
