Doing Better...

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Instead of oversleeping an hour and a half I only overslept 45 mins.!

DOH!

But I *refuse* to use an alarm clock...going to keep working at re-setting my own internal alarm.

I still struggle so to get to bed early...it seems 10:30 - 11 is the norm...and then there's the occasional midnight! If I want to get up @ 6, my body keeps rebelling, saying "MORE SLEEP! YOU NEED MORE SLEEP!"

    You DO need more sleep! Do your best to get those zzzzs, you know that proper rest is a major requirement for a healthy mind AND body! Still, I know what you mean about trying to get to bed at Xhour and then before one knows it - it's 11PM!

Just When My Sleep Was Getting SO Steady...

Monday, March 09, 2009

...comes Daylight Savings Time...oof! Overslept an hour and a half this morning, blew my treadmill session out of the water!

Energy was low all day, but still got home and did my 'millwork tonight. It didn't rev me up, the music made it tolerable, but certainly not easy or rejuvenating...!

Turning in early tonight to get my "clock" straightened around!

Still no word from my surgeon on surgery date yet...

Biking Continues To Be De-Railed...

Sunday, March 08, 2009

Went to the park with the best of intentions once AGAIN today...but this time I noticed that during it's winter storage *somehow* (grrr!) the chain had come off and gotten tangled up and I was unable to get it going.

I was so steamed up I just stormed off and walked it off...probably made my best walking time yet...! lol

Off to the bicycle shop I go...

Don

ps, note to myself...I *REALLY* oughta be handier mechanically if I'm going to be riding this thing...!

Cycling Cx'd On Account of Rain... :-(

Saturday, March 07, 2009

Hustled home after working this morning hoping to get out for my first bicycling of the season...60 degrees here...!

But the clouds gathered and the rain fell too quickly...phooey!

Guess it's back to the 'mill once again...sigh...

Celebrating Two Months Cardio Streaking...!

Friday, March 06, 2009

Woo Hoo!! Today marks TWO MONTHS of cardio streaking for me! Been doing mostly my treadmill every day. For a few days I substituted cross country skiing. Lately I've been trying to get in two cardio sessions a day, morning and night...feeling like I need to stockpile my workouts in anticipation of my surgery...and no I have no date yet set for my surgery, hoping for within two weeks, but we'll see.

Haven't missed any of my 3 x week strength training either...and have been building up the number of reps and sets.

What kind of streaks are others building out there...?
