Oh it's not as bad as it sounds. I used to want Monday to be part of the weekend. Going back to work on Tuesday. But I realized what ever day I started back to work , the first day would be hard.
I have my Monday routine down pretty good. I like to be as efficient as I can.
But this morning getting up just before 6:00 am to do my exercises, was not happening.
Have you noticed the nights are getting longer? It doesn't get light as early as it used to.
I am like a bird, I rise with the morning light. Oh my! later this year I'll be getting up at 7:30 or so. I'll really have to adjust my routine then.
So I started out late. Got in 30 minutes of resistance bands. Just got out of the shower and the office phone was ringing. Early morning calls usually mean jobs, so I always try to take them.
Then its time to send the invoices cross country to New Jersey before 12:00, eastern time. Just made it. A few more phone calls, checked a few e-mails, logged in to Spark, commented on a few blogs. I looked up at it was 11:00 am, . Oops, I realized I still hadn't ate breakfast.
So I have a decision to make eat breakfast, or lunch???? I decided to make the zucchini pancakes I had standing by all prepped , ready to finish mixing and frying.
So I cooked up a delicious batch of my favorite zucchini pancakes, and ate a few in the process. Drank some V-8 juice. That will be breakfast. I'll have to change my food tracker.
I am off to the gym for water aerobics and water jogging, maybe swim some laps.
When I return I will probably fix a protein smoothie. Need to have that protein. I am working to build muscle.
I was all excited yesterday walked unaided for a mile. Took me 45 minutes. But earlier this year I could hardly walk from room to room. I used walkers and canes to get around. Was on the verge of buying a electric chair or scooter to help me be mobile., and get out of the house..
In a way that seems like a long time ago. And then at times it's very vivid in my mind.
I've come so far just by losing some weight and getting up and trying to do things that I thought I would never do again. I have not always been successful the first time, I have felt pain and have cried a few tears. But I kept at it and I am seeing the results.
Through the success I have experiences so far makes me want to reach out and grab every over weight, unhealthy person I see and say, Stop! , I can help you. ..Of course I know I can never do that. I can only respond if someone asks me what I am doing and can I give them any advice on how to lose.
Till I feel the urge to blog again, I leave you with this thought: " If you never try, you will never know what you are capable of doing.."
Peace and Love, Tisha
