Mini goals and long term goals
Friday, June 05, 2015
A small victory for me today; I did my chair workout for 5 days in a row this week, working out for 22-25 minutes each time. That is not a lot of exercise compared to what a lot of people do, but it's been months since I've been able to do 5 days in a row of ANYTHING. (For those of you who haven't read my blogs before, this is kind of a "big deal" for me because I am also living with incurable metastatic breast cancer.) Not trying to get sympathy here, I just want people to know that no matter what your health issues or disabilities are, there are ways to work around those issues if you can't do what is considered "traditional" exercise.
I know I still need to pace myself, so I plan to take a break from my workouts this weekend, and next week, I will try for another 5 days in a row. As long as my hemoglobin stays stable and I am not too anemic, I think I can do it.
I also started working on one of my other goals again which I've slacked off on, and that is tackling all the clutter in my house. Even though Penny cleaned out and organized my spare bedroom, there is still stuff in boxes and totes I have to go through; there is still much I can throw away or donate. My goals are to spend at least 10 minutes each day sorting and putting things away, and at least 20 minutes 3 times per week.
This morning, I spent almost 25 minutes sorting through mostly old paperwork in there; I had music on so those 25 minutes went buy quickly; it was amazing how much I found to throw away in just that short time also. Little by little, I'll get it done!
