I Almost Didn't Do it...

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

It has been a crazy week. We are preparing for my partner's brother and his partner to come in from Boston on Thursday.

I am so tired! emoticon Bad night last night (I was 'over tired' I think). Lots of cleaning...Oh, not that our house is that dirty, but I've been doing things I've neglected for a while (busy Sparking and job searching). Things like blinds, wood floors, basement stairs, inside of the WHOLE refrigerator...

I almost didn't exercise today, even though I scheduled myself for a short cardio session and then strength training.

I almost didn't, but then...I thought of that great loss last week, how it's almost 30 pounds now, how much better and more flexible I feel, how Billy and Neal will be surprised. emoticon

I ended up doing 15 minutes on my elliptical exercise bike, Coach Nicole's resistance band routine (plus 5 extra reps of each exercise) and 10 minutes extra strength training with my dumb bells. To top is all off, I took the dog (see Butch, our puggle, 2nd page of my photos) on quite a walk. emoticon

Yes, I'm even more tired than I was. But it's such a good kind of tired...I'm proud of myself. I'll have a better night's sleep tonight emoticon and a better day tomorrow.

I almost didn't do it, but I did. If I can, you can, too! emoticon

    You sound ready to have a great visit with nothing to worry about. It's amazing how exercising can make us feel so much better. I keep reminding myself of that.

    Way to go girlfriend!!! You are doing so good. I know you feel better for making yourself do some exercising even though you were busy with other things. Hope you have a great time with your company! I'm sure they won't notice the cleanliness of your house but at least you know it is clean!!!!!

Hugs,
Sandi
