Rest from your normal routine can be a good thing. Or rest from pushing yourself all the time. Not resting on your laurels. But just not pushing so hard.
We all push ourselves so much. A little friendly competition is good for all of us. But we need to rest when our bodies tell us to.
I feel refreshed again after taking some time off from pushing myself. I am still getting in my fitness minutes; I am just not pushing…pushing…pushing right now. I’ve been doing quite a bit of gardening in the mornings the last couple of weeks.
I am tempted to make sure that the Orange Jubilee will never bloom again!! I know the hummers are attracted to them. But so are the bees. The flowers are messy and the bees…well, I got stung four times while trimming the suckers.
The reason I am writing this post is because every time I go to my page, I see that my last entry was called Lazy Day. Oh, that’s real inspirational...LOL. I couldn’t take it anymore!!!...LOL.
The computer virus I had/ have was taking me to different pages and other crazy things. I’ve done some research. It apparently takes snapshots of your pages for usernames and it can record your keystrokes for passwords. Oh, that’s nice. I’ve been working on getting rid of it. So far, I think I have it under control.
I tend to panic under these circumstances. But not this time. I am taking control of my own destiny in so many ways right now. Not to say that I am in control of my life…we all know who is in control…LOL.
I found a new place to teach Zumba Gold. Actually, they came looking for ME. I am so excited! I am still teaching my Tuesday-Thursday class at the other place, but I am also now teaching Monday-Wednesday at the new place.
One of my good Spark friends MORTICIAADDAMS, who is one of my greatest inspirations, wears her pedometer at all times and she has NO PROBLEM getting in 12,500 steps a day. That is amazing! I can remember at the last job I had before DH retired, I started wearing a pedometer because Dr. Oz said you should get a minimum of 3500 steps a day. I was lucky at that time to get 400 steps in a day. That's walking to the car, walking back and forth to the bathroom at work, and walking back to the car. Once I was home, it was TV time. Wow, things have really changed.
The last time I wore a pedometer was probably about six months ago, and I was walking about 10,000 steps a day.
I’ve been making better choices lately too. It’s all about choices, isn’t it?????????
