I can do it.

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

Today I spent a long time going through this sight. I read many blogs, got many ideas and put some ideas to paper to remind myself.
I am older and forgetful, more so because I have so much on my mind than on age, I hope!!

A Spark friend has continuously sent me emails with links and ideas. I read them all, but today I reread and made some goals for me. The ideas are wonderful. I think what is difficult is
1. What would work for me?
2. Could I realistically do what some of these ideas are?
3. If these ideas would not work for me then what would?
4. What has worked in the past and what has not? Do not set myself up to fail..yet again!!
5. Do not wait start now!!

So the first thing that I am going to do is move. I do not mean move where I live. I mean move this big old stiff and sore body!! I read a blog with excellent ideas. I am starting today to put one into action. My husband and son leave soon to go to the tutors. So once they are gone..on goes some good moving music..out come the cloth's, mop, etc and away I go. I have things to do, so why not have fun and move and dance to the music while I do the work?/ I love this idea.
I will do it when they are home once I get it sorted out. I just usually do housework when they are out Tuesday evening. So first start.

Next I have sent an email to a Spark friend and asked for her to be a walking buddy 2-3 times a week even just for 10 - 15 minutes. Now this may not seem like much. However, believe me when you have not walked for years very much and can now get shoes on because your leg is are thankful for a few minutes of walking and trying to breath!!

I have also started to eat more what I want and not always what Stan and Brandon want. I am being me.

So now I am going to go and do a few more things and get ready to move. No cameras today!!

On another note, Mom seems to be settling in her new room. I am going to see her tomorrow.
Her phone should be in soon and even my cousin did not find her paranoid yesterday. So I am hoping this works for now.

    Just moving around and dancing a bit while you clean can be some of the best (and most fun and productive at the same time) exercise!

I'm glad you're going to focus on yourself some more. Only when we do that is when we can succeed.
