Day 119: The Real ME and Time In
Sunday, October 06, 2013
I cannot believe it has been more than a week since my last blog. Time sure knows how to get away from me. Life can sometimes overwhelm and cause me to take time off whether wanted or not. My time off was not wanted, but taken anyway.
I am still struggling with exercise. I have exercised two days a week but my other attempts always seem to fail. I dislike getting home at 6:00 from work. Working almost 12 hour days can be very draining. But until I find my groove, there is nothing I can really do.
I did exercise 40 minutes yesterday and discovered I can jog without getting over exhausted. That is something new for me. Normally I can not endure but three minutes of it. I believe I went a whole 10. Then my calves started retaliating. They continue on this morning. So today I will walk again. Give them a little rest.
I am so glad that I do not have to rely on the weather for my workout. It is nice to have youtube around to exercise on the television. What would I have done without a smart tv? I don't know but I am glad I invested in one.
So, as I exercise this morning, I will think about how I am making a difference and will not stop to examine how I will fit it in tomorrow. I will just take it day by day and do my best to get it together. I can walk using my computer or television. No matter where I am all I have to do is pick up my feet and do it. I must make it a priority and stop talking about it. I am getting sick of reading what I have to do and seeing that I only give it half an effort.
It is time to put my money where my mouth is. My health is too important to let it fall to the wayside. No more time off. TIME IN from now on.
