All over the place

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Thursday and Friday were driving days. On Thursday I got in less than 4,000 steps and on Friday, about 8,000. Today was the first full day at my mother's and TC and I got up early and walked/jogged 5 miles, and after dinner we all took a walk. Altogether it was over 20,000 steps.

Tomorrow is the memorial/luncheon for my nephew's mother, so I doubt there will be much exercise. Monday we will spend with TC's family so it will be lunch with the parents and dinner with the siblings. Again, little or no exercise.

It just seems I'm up and down, up and down and can't get any traction.

It's called LIFE, right? Well, I may be down but never count me out! Next week will be another opportunity to dig in and work hard!!

    With everything your dealing with right now...your doing great. So you had 2 days of lower still got up early & went for a 5 mile walk/jog. You haven't given up are just scaling back a bit. Think of it as a bit of a recovery for your when you taper for a race. Also helps to keep the body quessing. Next week when your back to a normal schedule, you'll fall back into your routine of more daily steps.

    I'm glad you are staying so positive! I'm sure you'll get yourself right back on track once things settle down. That is life as you said!

    I agree that it is more difficult trying to get in exercise when you are expected at so many family gatherings. Some is better than none though.

    Life happens . . . and you're doing all that you can, knowing that you're committed to doing more when you can.

Can't do better than that!!

    My thoughts are with you .... YES, it is called LIFE and learning to manage the unexpected as well as the hard to anticipate is difficult but YOU CAN DO IT! Hugs!
