being a girl, when its that time. It is all I need to say about that, need chocolate this time for sure, yeah~Drugs are coming quite soon so I'm not in pain.
Its pretty warm today, tonight. I'm about to get on my treadmill in a little bit. I'll see if I can manage to do an hour, at least 30 minutes though so I can get my step count going back up in the proper direction. Earlier I did a bunch of housework and took out the trashcan since we have pickup on Wednesdays and on Saturdays. I flat ironed my hair on touchup earlier and I had to put on shorts a little while ago because I was just too warm to wear long pants anymore.
Thanks to everyone who has given me a Spark Goodie, its fun to give them but sometimes I give myself some just to be mindful of caring for myself a little more consciously. Sometimes one gives others more attention than to herself, so it means I need to pay attention to myself everyday in terms of sleep, exercise, food choices, keeping the stress levels down and being positive towards myself.
I like the new Start Page honestly. I'm usually the first one resistant to any and all change when I like something the way it is. I seem to like it A LOT. I didn't know about the change until it happened because when I come onto Spark People I bookmarked it to come up on the Points Page and sometimes I go to the start page from the points. Its just easier for me to navigate that way.
I was going to make chicken enchiladas tonight but the two little ones went off with their mom for a few hours after school until 730pm. The SO was working late and he said he would pick up something on the way home since he had a taste for Thai so I will make that tomorrow night instead. I'm kind of glad things worked out the way it did because it gave me a chance to do housework and see what I need to accomplish in the next few weeks so I can be ready when the sister comes for Thanksgiving.
The Thompson Twins are playing right now and I haven't heard "Doctor, Doctor" for a while. I have a 2500 song playlist on Spotify for all the different types of music I listen to so it hasn't come up for quite a time. I have a lot of Barry White, Bob Dylan, Etta James, Whitney Houston, Salsa type music, The Pixies, Pogues, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Alternative, some garage, Latin, Pop Rock from the 70-90's. A lot of Soul music, Hawaiian, Lounge and Downtempo, old school rap, some dance music, Polish. Its just a montage of different music.
I was thinking about my exercise goals and the first goal is to get the steps back up but I have to start out slower just so my body doesn't rebel against the change. Its time to ramp up again but by the first week of November I want to get back into the 13,000-15,000 a day range. That is very doable for me and this not walking so much isn't getting it done. Yeah I like my other exercise a lot but I feel so much better with my 90 min-2 hours of walking in a day. I don't get in enough activity without those steps and I feel so much better with the walking. I am going to try and go in the morning but I do a lot better with evening walking. It gets dark out round 6pm here now so I'll try to get up round 230-3pm get up and shower and eat something and then go walking for an hour outdoors. If I can train my mind to do it in the morning then I'll do it then but the mind doesn't feel like it so much after working all night.
I slept pretty good but forgot to take out one pillow so I have a bit of a neck chink and I have that headache a little but from it being that time, sigh. I need to take 4 Advil so it can travel through and get to working for me.
I'll have more in my next entry. I am about to warm up for my treadmill action. I'm just going to do a half hour tonight and do a cardio thing and call it a day for activity.
