Today was the last day of vacation. Tomorrow, work begins again. I have LOVED having this time off! I really needed the break. I did not get as many things crossed off my to do list as I wanted, but I am very proud of the work I did get done around the house.
As I have been doing things today including getting ready for tomorrow, I think that returning to the routine will be helpful. Oddly, I am better about drinking water at work than at home. I need to be more diligent about getting the exercise in. I need to walk in the morning (that would be new) or brave our tiny gym (I am intimidated by the fit people who use it - I would be much more comfortable by myself!).
I want to lose 5 pounds a month this
year and would not turn down more than that. Today was day 2 of my new resolve to get 10 minutes of exercise in. Yesterday was exactly 10 and it felt a lot more than that. Today was 42. I walked to the neighborhood store and stopped at another store enroute. I bought some new arch supports and my feet are much happier! On the way back home, I found a credit card in the garden center of the hardware store. I turned it in at the service desk. I hope the person and their card get reunited. I was glad for the extra steps, even though my right foot is still sore.
I had planned to do some kettlebell workouts today, but I can hardly lift my right arm so I decided that was unwise. I think I slept wrong - the back of my shoulder is really sore and I can't think what else could have been the cause.
At the moment, my food tracker says I need to eat more, but I am not hungry. This year, my focus is less on food and more on moving.
Today was a good day.
