Feeling better every day of this "Phase 2" of my Spark Program.
My shoulder's still messed up so I am limited on certain activities
but I'm adapting and doing what I can.
I've scheduled a massage for tomorrow. That'll be good.
I can tell that I've passed into another stage of "Phase 2".
This passage was mental, not physical.
The first tell was deliberately passing up the chocolate
at the store a couple days ago.
I am paying more attention to my food selections, quantities, tracking.
The temps have been quite cool for June. Yesterday I made a big bowl of vegetable soup. Today I made tomato soup. Hearty, filling, yummy, very satisfying. And warm.
I've been working in the yard as much as I can. Today I was relocating three rainbird (sprinklers) from one section of the yard to another. Because I don't like to get wet, especially when it's cool outside, I try to set the rainbirds at the end of the length of the hose, away from the faucet it's hooked up to, so I can turn them on in sequence without getting wet.
So, I had a series of three set up, ready to go, and proceeded to turn them on one by one. The first one worked just the way it was supposed to. I thought the second one was working too, but as soon as I turned on the third one, it started spinning and shooting water everywhere. I turned to run away from it and ran right into the second one.
Now all 3 of the sprinklers are drenching the yard, but 2 of them are misfiring, sending out eratic geysers of water everywhere, looking more like water ballerinas than rainbirds.
I try to time my approach to the faucet to shut it off so I don't get wet . . . well, lotsa luck with that!
Needless to say, by the time I had them shut off, I felt like I had been through another of Coach Nichole's BootCamp workouts!
And I was thankful for a warm bowl of soup!
