That's my life!
Workout yesterday - well the traffic was horrible going home and it took me well over an hour to make it to my end of town. I figured since it was Monday and around the time the gym gets pack I would be disappointed when I got there. So I choose yesterday as my work outdoors day. I put in my blog yesterday that at least one day a week I will do an outdoor workout and I accomplished that yesterday. I really, really enjoyed walking outside, forgot what that felt like. I set the timer on my phone for a 20 minute walk and reset to return in 20 minutes. I limited myself to 40 minutes as my back was giving me issues yesterday. I got this pain/discomfort in my right side again so I didn't want to get to far away and couldn't make it back. It was a bit hot but not uncomfortable. It rained/poured yesterday so I was glad that the gnats hadn't come out yet. I know today and tomorrow I definitely won't be walking outside. Can't stand it when the gnats are in my hair, nose and eyes.
I did cook dinner
that's day #2. Yep I did it. I put some chicken in the oven before I left for my walk and when I came back it was ready. Quick, simple and good!!! I'm really trying this month to do much better than I had been doing. Now that I'm getting my eating together my desire to workout is in a slump! What's up with that? Can't I do both? I'm trying to regain my momentum with the workouts by changing things a bit. I was planning not to go to the gym all week and walk/wog outside but due to the flood of gnats I know I probably won't get back out until Thursday or Friday. But good thing I have an alternative to getting in my cardio. Previously i would just skip the workout because the gnats would always win!
I also need to get back to my squats/jacks and planks. I sort of slid down the mountain around the 20th of last month. (That's the last day I have checked off on my calendar as complete). I guess one good glance at my butt in the mirror can make you squat, lunge and anything else that will help (well I won't give details some of you may be eating or just finished eating). But let's just say I will be back to squatting TODAY
Well Sparkers that's it for me today.
16 more days and I'm a year older!!! Oh I forgot to share how sweet my lil girl/young lady is. She got her first full paycheck Friday and when I walked out my house on Saturday morning (didn't hear the door bell ring) I see a big box marked pro flowers. My baby sent me some flowers with a note that said I was her greatest blessing and inspiration so she wanted to give me something to say thank you. AWWWW no I didn't cry but I'm so proud of her. She even shared with me how she used her new found blessing of having her own money to buy lunch for a homeless person. One thing she didn't forget is to pay her tithe to acknowledge and thank God for blessing her with a job. I'm a super proud parent of a beautiful heart.
