Late start today

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

I got a very late start today. I was awake til 4 am so I didn't really get out of bed til 11 am. I read my e-mails, worked out, did the dishes, then made breakfast. All said and done, I didn't eat breakfast til after 1pm....Oh well...every day is different for me. I do like it better when I sleep at night though and get up early. It doesn't always happen for me though.

My mom looked a little better yesterday. We can't go down there today though. My hubby has to work the rest of the week. After my blog I am gonna try and call though. The tests results were not conclusive (complicated issue). The doctors are trying to get her oxygen levels up before they let her go home though. I don't know for sure when that is going to be yet. An occupational therapist was supposed to see her, but as of yesterday, that still had not happened.

I appreciate all the loving concern in the blogs from my friends. You are all a blessing to me. It is nice to remember that we are never alone in facing the challenges of this system of things. And that there are people who really do care about each other in the most wonderful way.

I went over my calories yesterday. Its hard to keep track when you are running around all day. But I didn't do too bad, and I have been working out more every day than I count in my logs. I usually try to count 10 minutes less than I am actually doing. That way I have a small amout of flexibility in the calorie count too. I know I wasn't supposed to look yet (I weigh in on the 1st of every month) but the scale was down over 3 pounds from my weigh in on the first of May. It was good to see it go down again, instead of up. I feel mellow today and just taking things slow. I don't feel bad at all though and that is good!

Sending much love to all the friends. Have a happy day! Love Joyce

    I don't know if you are like me, but exercise allows me to handle stress much better. It actually helps me to sleep better too. Perhaps you are noticing the same thing.

    I was accustomed to exercising on an empty stomach but that is actually not the best thing to do for the metabolism. So rather than eat a whole meal, which isn't good before exercise either, I learned eat something small like a kiwi or 1/2 banana just to get my metabolism going without bogging down my body with a lot of food to process. I had to change up my routine a little to make it work. Get up, grab my small piece of fruit and eat that. Then get ready for my workout, brush teeth, fill my water bottle, set-up my DVD and equipment etc. By the time I actually get to the workout, 15 to 20 minutes have passed.

    After my workout, I shower & change - then I have a proper breakfast. All in all, I found my weight loss was great and my energy level during an early morning workout was much better with this change. Just a thought that you may find useful.

    Take care of yourself and I pray your mom gets better.

    I told my mom of the sisters on sparkpeople that sent their loving greetings. I know it made her happy. Love to you all :)

    I even got some dusting done today. Ha ha ha. I havent done that in awhile. It took over an hour to do my room, but I was listening to my favorite cd and just taking my time. No hurry, just little by little. I know I am feeling better though since I felt like doing it.

    I hope you all have a productive day. Little by little, day by day, a drop of water will wear a rock away!

    Love Joyce :) emoticon
