The ups and downs

Thursday, July 30, 2009

After quite a little tantrum(but no swearing), I got my bike back! WOOOO HOOO! I went for a ride tonight and it was super great!

Also managed to get some serious weeding done..trust me, this was no floppy sun hat, seated on a cushy pad kind of weeding; no this was yanking with all my weight backwards in an effort to dislodge these d*mn things, hacking at them with a shovel blade, grunting and red faced, sweating, hauling mulch kind of gardening. Lots of bending and standing and kneeling. Its not done, but there's a satisfactory bit of progress.

I love how active I've been lately, in fact, I'm a lot like my landscaping, I'm not done but there's progress :D The downside is that I'm neglecting other activites that I really enjoy and bring me a different kind of satisfaction. My child, significant other, friends, family and dogs are all taken care of, but I haven't taken the time to sit and read a novel. I really enjoy refinishing furniture, but my new/old computer desk is begging for me attention and I keep telling it "No sorry, you don't burn enough calories"

My regular schedule involves me getting up at 5ish am and handle the 3 dogs and watch the news with my coffee, then I get my kiddo ready for school and myself for work, drop him off at school and go to work from 7:30 - 4:30, pick up the kiddo from school, take care of the dogs, make dinner, a few household chores, get the boog bathed and ready for bed by 8pm, then I do my work outs and sit for a bit. I shoot for a 10 o'clock bedtime but that doesn't always happen.

Will I give myself permission to not do cardio everyday in order to trade that time for a reading or desk sanding?

    Yayy for having the bike and getting to use it emoticon

    Give yourself permission emoticon Or do cardio with a book in your hand emoticon I've been making some of that time my opportunity to talk to R, it helps me feel like I'm including him - so maybe carrying a book with you? No? Too creepy? emoticon
