A Purposeful Life

Monday, December 02, 2013

I have been fighting a cold ever since Black Friday. I missed my C25K run on Sat due to this. However I was feeling a bit better yesterday and thought I was over it. Pulled weeds in the front yard (weve had a lot of rain so far this winter) and mopped the whole house. So that was pretty vigourous exercise so I counted it emoticon
But couldn't get to sleep last night, probably because I slept in til 10. Oh and the mid season finale to The Walking Dead. OMG!!! I haven been that sad over the show since Sophia died. So sad. So moving. So CANNOT believe I have to wait til February for the next episode emoticon

I did do my C25K tonight, kinda cheater cuz I forgot my MP3 player so didnt have my intervals, but had my new phone to time my intervals on the treadmill. I also prefer to go outside, but it was more feasible to get it done by taking the treadmill route and I didnt want to skip AGAIN! I still feel crappy, but not any more than before I exercised, maybe better. Definitely better right after, felt like i sweated it out a bit. But got some food in me, now waiting for DD and DH to get home from the latest cheer fundraiser. They are wrapping presents at a big sporting goods store for $$$. Hope its worthwhile.

I also hope I can get some decent sleep tonite! emoticon Sooo tired today. Long payroll day after a long holiday weekend. Ugh! But its didnt go too bad and I went out and picked up some invites for DD Bday party next weekend. Officially a preteen at 12. Scary! emoticon

Well its been up and down for me lately, what with being sick and relationship problems. The scale also. But I want to keep on track with the exercise, because I do feel like its helping me to feel more positive and have more direction. I guess purposeful is the word that comes to mind. Im not even sure its a real word, but I like the sound of it. Because for the majority of this year I have been drifting, no direction, no drive. No nada. The only thing that really moves me is my love for my daughter, but I am so grateful I have gotten myself moving to be MORE for her. She needs that. And I love her that much emoticon

    Purposeful is absolutely a word. I think it's fantastic that you're sticking with your exercise plan because it's helping you in a variety of ways. Good for you! I'm so glad that you're enjoying the new phone so much, too. Your daughter is very lucky to have such a caring, thoughtful Mom- you obviously love her very much!

    Keep on going, you will rock that 5k!

    That definitely counts as a workout. Hope you feel better. Good job getting in your workout even while sick.

    Sorry you are having relationship problems. Is there someone you can talk to? A counselor? Marriage help from a church?

    Happy birthday to your daughter! Wow, 12. My daughter is 6. It's amazing how fast it goes.

    Keep up the great work!

    Keep up your positive spirit... my daughters kept me going too...

    Good for your - you did your C25K - even if you did not feel like it at first. Many times I feel like skipping too and I am always happy I did my workout (even if it is not my best one - it is a workout !)

    Have a great week... Take good care!
