Hello! How are we today? Terrific I am hoping. I have to say yesterday I was in a pretty craptastic mood. I was seriously grumpy. I've been having a rough week with my job. Today I woke up sluggish, but now I am feeling significantly better and more optimistic. I have no idea why, but I will take it.

So, yesterday I planned to workout (on my bike) for 15 minutes. But when I got home I realized it was a perfect day to mow. I do the push mowing and my boyfriend does the riding. Needless to say I'm mowing all the difficult areas. The bank and such. It only take about a half an hour and I HATED it when I first started doing it. For some reason it always makes my butt hurt. Do not ask me why. But yesterday....I kind of enjoyed it. Maybe because I've been sweating everyday here lately so this didn't seem to be a big deal. For one thing it wasn't 95 degrees this time. It was quite beautiful actually. We have some areas we can't mow because there's junk in the way so when I got done mowing I picked up some of the junk and threw it in the trash. I will be happy to finally have all that out of the way and really get the yard looking nice. Anywho....when we were done with that I decided to count that as my workout. Not something I would normally do, but frankly my knee is starting to hurt and I just wasn't up to putting it through another 15 minutes. The reason I wouldn't normally count that is because it's "out of my routine". The routine is SO important to me and keeping me exercising. So...the rule after deviating from my routine...the very next day I get right back to my matter what. No excuses. Yes, I got the exercise I needed yesterday, probably burned more calories than riding my bike, but I cannot allow that to mess with my routine or it will be a downward spiral. No more than 1 day not on my bike. Seriously. It's important to my entire well being.

On the other side of my relationship. Let me tell you....when that man looks at me I just melt. I cannot stop smiling. Don't get me wrong, we have issues just like any other couple. Our fair share because I'm extra sensitive. But man do we have fun together. And we don't have to spend any money to do it. Hopefully we'll actually get to camp this weekend. I'm very much looking forward to it.

Speaking of the weekend. We are going to a cookout on Saturday. My plan, this worked for me before, (even though I'm not worrying about food yet, its on my mind) is to take a picture of my plate of food to share on here. The accountability helps me. Hope it doesn't bore you too much, lol.

Well. I better go. Tonight: 15 minutes of cardio

    I think that is okay to count that as movement or activity or what not the one day. I'm with you, I have to HAVE to have my routine. I do MWF weights. I do TRSa cardio. I can't change it and can't slack off or I might end up back where I was, 60+ pounds heavier and miserable. I'm happy now. I don't want to be like that again. I struggle with depression and so much more when I'm fat. Now, I have changed my rest days up before and worked out on Sunday if I missed another session, and I'm okay with that, but mostly I try to stick with my thing. It is working for me, and maybe after I've been at this for a long time, successfully maintaining for a year, I'll be more flexible, but right now, I know this is what I need! I'm glad you know what you need too!

    And I'm happy for you, that you are this happy. He sounds like a good guy.
