I woke up early to work out and got through Level 1. 8 more to go! Soreness was a definite factor today but mainly in my chest from doing the flies. I told my husband that my chest hurt and he graciously offered to help support it.

My goal is to do 10 workouts on each level (3) by 11/21/08. The reason for this is I have a banquet to attend on 11/22. I started on 10/13/08, yes I added some extra days in because I can't work out every day. Wednesdays when I have class I barely have time to feed my dog so those days are out.
10/13: Day 1, level 1 I couldn't quite keep up with all of the exercises and had to take more breaks than the last time I did this. I did complete the circuit. 9 more to go!
10/14 Day 2: Had to move a mattress set, grocery shop and clean since I couldn't do so on Saturday. No shred today. I did save some money by convincing my husband that instead of eating out I would make whatever he wanted for dinner. Along with a fit butt and stomach I am working towards fit finances so this was a small victory for us. Also, in the past month I have paid $1,000 towards my huge money sucking credit card. A good portion of that was my bonus but it's less money I have to worry about later.
10/15 Day 3: Wednesday=class. I have a hair appointment at 3 and then I go straight to get some food then straight into class. I did get up earlier than normal to get some chores done around the house. See that's my working up to getting up earlier and exercising in the morning! Tomorrow I will have my exercise clothes laid out so I can get out of bed, put them on, work out then shower and get ready for work.
Every time I restart my exercise routine I am reminded that I SLEEP BETTER!! HELLO brain, do you hear me?? If I sleep better I don't struggle as much in the mornings! But every time I end up falling off the wagon and repeating the process. I know why it is, something will come up and my schedule will change and I start to put off exercising and the next thing you know it's been a week, then a month, then 3 months, etc. Working in my clinical hours on top of class, work and the rescue squad will probably throw a wrench into my plans but I'll figure that out later. One day at a time, right?

Anyone else feel that way?
Mon-Wed, get up go to work, come home. Thursday, go to work, come home, prepare for ____ (meeting, drill, etc). Friday, go to work, come home, go to the squad, run duty. Saturday come home from the squad, try to sleep, clean and have a life. Sunday, go to squad, come home. Lather. Rinse. Repeat. Throw a husband in there once in awhile and that is my life.
The class I am taking will break that up but I feel like it's summer vacation and dangit, I should be sleeping in and playing outside all day! YES I want to be 7 again. I want my biggest decision to be which horse I ride, help my dad around the barn, avoid my mother and play in the woods.
This is probably caused by the fact that in July every person in my office EXCEPT ME gets to go spend at least one week at the beach. Now it all just works out that way, they didn't all coordinate their beach trips on purpose but still...every Monday I hear "The beach was so fun!!" and I want to stab someone with a paper clip. Can you say jealous? That's me!
I'm off to go find some kids sand box to sit in...

Anything that promotes volunteering is good for me. Then again, I spend almost all of my free time (and some of my not so free time, sorry bosses) focusing on my volunteer work.
It's easy to find something that will work for you, not everyone can be an EMT like me or work at a humaine society but there are so many opportunities out there...please take the time to see what you can find. Every little bit counts!
