But I've let excuses take over yesterday and today.
Yesterday I was leaving the house I had been house sitting in... and I did clean (but not enough to work up a sweat) and I walked carrying three way-too-heavy-to-be-carried-co
mfortably bags for half an hour (my shoulders and neck ache slightly today, still, doesn't really count as exercise). I would have gone to zumba but I forgot my cell phone charger and went to go pick it up. Walking is better than nothing! Instead of even going to the gym, I visited with my mom for a while because we haven't for over a month.
Today... today I would normally have gone to yoga at 6:10. I'm hosting a little party on Saturday afternoon, one of those parties where you host a salesperson and invite your friends over to buy things. I think it's important - necessary even - to feed friends on occasions like this. However, since I'm still a student and only work two days a week, I'm just having a 'make-your-own-sandwich' bar... kind of tacky but I don't have time to make 20 sandwiches and who knows if anyone would want the ones I would want... so I bought some buns, wraps, bread, meats, cheeses, veggies, and fruit. Oh and chips, my mom suggested chips. Luckily for me, potato chips don't entice me. Anyhow, I went grocery shopping tonight with my mom because she has her car and tomorrow night I'm off house sitting in a new place and I wouldn't have enough time (nor vehicle) to get the stuff on Saturday morning. So... another day of just walking.
TOMORROW MORNING!!! I am going to my yoga class at 9:30. And I need to go to the post office. And I need to get ready to switch houses again. So perhaps I should be doing laundry... but I really feel like a bath. However, I should get some work done before the bath.
I'm not sure of what exercise I'll be able to get in this weekend. Saturday will be taken up with this party so I can squeeze in neither zumba nor yoga. Maybe there will be some dancing in the night... Sunday I could go to yoga or to the gym... but the house I'm at does have an elliptical so maybe I'll just stay there, use that, and walk the two dogs I'll be caring for. Next week I'll make sure I fit in more regular exercise!
Now, that 90-day 'say NO to junk food' challenge started today... I wasn't able to make it to the kick off party. Haven't made the best start to it though... even since I've been writing this blog entry I received some unpleasant news updates from my brother and so I ate two homemade cookies from the plate sitting on the counter. Definite emotional eating... and yes, they made me feel a little better but I don't need any more. And now I still want to exercise more...
Work, bath, sleep. Get up, go to yoga, eat well, have a good and productive day.
Take care, sparkfriends!
