Between being stressed and exhausted I am going to start today to get back on track - the last 13 days of taking care of my brother I have not done structured workouts.
I have gotten exercise with my yard work and chores out on the farm and I have taken Brute on a few walks - but I need to do my X-factor strength training work outs 3X this week. I need to get more cardio. I need to feel rested! I need my water. The ONLY thing I am doing very well is sleeping. Once I am asleep, I sleep for 8 hours. My water intake has taken a dive - I am drinking WAY to much ice tea (unsweetened and plain but still ...)
Today I am going to do better!
When I take my bro to his appointments - not only do we stop to eat, but we stop for snacks! Well yesterday I said NO to ice cream and had my fruit when I got home.
Because I am so very tired things are slipping thru the cracks... I always take my little cooler with water and fruit with me - I am taking A water and no fruit.. no more of that!
When I/we go to the city it is a 3-8 hour affair. Although can I just say - do to circumstances not of our doing last Thurs it was 10 hours!! I do not ever do that to ME. EVER! But circumstances got out of control and it could not be avoided and my body just has not caught up yet - I am still so very very tired.
I keep pushing myself - saying I cannot sit down today - OH NO too much to do today.
I know you all know what I am talking about - OLD habits die hard and I do not want to fall back in the rut of sitting at the computer or in the chair for 3 hours and look up and think OH MY where did the day go? At any rate - Laundry, grass, cleaning, medications, ect ect ect it never stops! cooking, cleaning, phone calls and paper work for insurance.. oh my!
Not to mention that my bro is in my back yard - I have 8 acres so when I say back yard... more like an acre back - I am running to and fro all day long - I am getting my exercise that way.. HO HUM! Did I say I was tired?!
OH and I broke my toe! an injury does not make me feel well at all either - who coulda thought that a little break in a toe could HURT so bad? It hurts worse than when I had a broken ankle - almost! The price of putting up bunk beds for grandkids... lol
Sorry for the rant! Thank you for reading. I am gonna feel better by resting more and to continue to say NO to things I cannot do and will not do that are detrimental to my health and well being.
God Bless you!
