Stuck in a Rut
Monday, May 02, 2011
Ok, So I have been on Spark for awhile now. I've had some pretty serious health issues with my knees... I'm not in major pain on most days THANK GOD!
I can not seem to get out of this rut of just parking myself in front of my computer. I love the feed back and interaction I get from all my friends here on Spark. I need to start moving again. I DO walk most everyday about 1.5 miles at lunch, so I'm not a total SLUG! LOL
It has been very cold and rainy here in northern Illinois. Perhaps that is the reason. I've also been rather challenged by bills as my part time hours were cut to nothing for 4 1/2 months. I did volunteer in the beginning in order for the full time people to make their hours ( as I have a full time job). I'm now back to getting my usual hours.
I just can't seem to shake this lassitude.
Any suggestions? I'd love to get a Spark partner near where I live to challenge be to get off my but!
I turned 57 this year and I think part of this is playing with my mind!
I did put in 5 1/2 hours cutting grass by push mover and yard work this Sunday and my knees and hips were screaming at me! My ridding lawn tractor battery was dead, so it will be ok next time, as I got it charged . It looked like rain and the grass was so long because of all the rain, I had to cut all of it, about 2/3 acre by walking!
I so want to get out in my garden, and can't still to cold and wet.
So enough of my whining! Any encouragement anyone wants to throw my way I'm more than happy to soak up!
You guys are the BEST!
