Good April 3rd

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

It was a good day...despite being April 3rd. It's not my favorite day as mom passed away on this day in 2010. In realizing the date this morning, I faced my feelings and went on about my day. I didn't miss a beat. I did a good job at work, ate in range, recorded everything, and did my workout this evening.

I did my push-up progression work-out tonight. It's hard! But I did it! I can really tell doing the push-ups is making a difference in my arms and chest. I can really feel those muscles now.

In my Wii workout this evening, I did different activities...trying to have more variety going. I did some of the strength exercises and really liked those...and did well with them. I did the golf swing which I had never done before and that was fun. I really liked the "flying chicken" activity, too! I felt silly...but in a good way.

Hope you all had a great day! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    I always remember the anniversaries of my loved ones deaths but my hubby doesn't seem to or if he does he doesn't acknowledge it. We had 3 close relatives die on the same day and 2 more died on another day. I am really proud of the way you handled yourself today. You mother would be as well. emoticon

    Good job facing your feelings and still meeting goals. I haven't been too good at that over the past several months I'm afraid, but progressing.

Pushups are hard as pictured. How did you start?

    Looks like you handled your emotional day really well! You're doing great on all your goals! Those pushups are hard! I do the modified ones, but now you're inspiring me to work on doing the full plank type pushups too! :)

    I'm glad you remained focus on your goals. It would have been easy to "take a day off", but you didn't. Good for you.
