That's what I told myself yesterday during a hike in the local park. Thanks to the engaging writing of Agatha Christie, I managed an hour worth of climbing up and down trails. Audio books appear to be the key to distract my otherwise busy mind so my body can go on autopilot with physical activity.
Last Thursday I joined P in his monthly salsa hour with a private instructor. That was mindful exercise, not exactly relaxation.
I still haven't weighed myself, but I figure the fitting of my clothes will sufficiently convey the result!

I haven't weighed myself for probably as long as I had been absent from SP. Work and being part of the support group for my dying grandfather plus other life drama took their toll on me, resulting two separate episodes of long stretched battle against flu/relapse.
Let's just say I am sick and tired of not feeling my best.
During the first half of 2010, I attempted group class of pilates and purchased another DVD program. Again, consistency is the issue. Last week I signed up with the local community center and swam for the first time in a long time. I couldn't last beyond 15 minutes of lap swim. That's how bad my lungs were, and I felt equally good and bad about the experience. Good that I finally made the effort to rebuild my respiratory system, bad that I had let myself get to this awful spot.

Well, I made through the 100-ish mile drive in the storm for work and also to our satellite office. That's something to celebrate as the major freeways were all flooded. I didn't get to any workout, but I'm pretty sure that I ate enough fruit to last me two more days. You win some, you lose some, right?
For those who may be interested, I work at a nonprofit helping disabled youth find their first jobs. We had two major meetings today, and with transition in personnel, I got a lot on my mind.

Really...as if I don't have enough on my plate, I am being forced to confront drama unfolding at work. It's only Tuesday and I am already exhausted! Tomorrow, unfortunately, is going to be a super long day at work. My one saving grace today was to release some tension by chatting with P instead of binge eating.
I need to book that massage appointment, pronto.

Yep, I dropped the ball for the past eight months or so in order to deal with the overwhelming combo of school and work. I am certain that lots of emotional eating took place, but the worst part was giving up regular workout. I want to make the grand announcement that I am back on track, but I am hesitant. What happens when the semester starts again on the 25th? How will I manage daily workout when I take over grandparents-sitting duty in February?
One day at a time, or so I keep telling myself.
