Two Things Two Plus

Monday, January 28, 2013

Yesterday morning and this morning
I told myself I can do it ten minutes at a time
and I did
I did ten minutes of light physical therapy exercise plus weights yesterday, and the same minus the weights this morning.
I kept telling myself, I did it ten minutes at a time before, I can do it again.
Then I went and finished logging yesterday's food this morning, and realized how I just blew any progress out of the park by the way I am eating right now. Major problem - having to eat with medications, and how having taken prednisone in the last week or so causes me to "have to eat" to make my stomach feel better. I hate having to take it. Glad I am done, and will be glad when I am finished with the antibiotic.
I also realize I have to be more vigilant with my water intake.
Ten minutes of stretches in the a.m. and drinking my water can push me to the edge of losing. I know it can. I need to make it so.

Then this morning I got a call from my 3 year old grandson.
He said: "I love you, Meme!"

Made my day.

    The thing is, you can eat lots of fruits and veggies with your meds -they are low calorie and don't add up so quickly. I have to take stuff with food, especially one at bedtime and I hate it but eat very, very lightly at night so as to not risk GERD.
    Getting in the habit of doing ten min of any exercise will be a great streak -key is to get it done in the morning when you are rested and fresh. My best exercise is in the mornings! The bonus is it helps loosen me up and get my energy revved up for the day too.

    You are doing fine! :) Meds will drive us crazy when we have to eat with them, but I know you can do this! Love that little phone call! :) HUGS!

    I don't think you blew any progress. Think of how far you'd be behind if you didn't exercise at all. Any exercise helps your mind and body. I say...You Go Girl! The exercise you are doing today will help you to build on future exercise in the coming weeks. emoticon
