I'm gonna chat while I 'run around getting ready' for tomorrow. My mother is having another surgery and I have to get going early, so I'm blogging the night before.
Nothing exceptional in fitness happened this week. It was my T.O.M. so I didn't S.W.I.M. lol
However, I DID get my arm workouts in and they are pretty thorough workouts. Also did some planks, though I logged a couple before actually DOING THEM and then I forgot and went to sleep. oops.
I guess I had a Wow Factor Moment yesterday. I'll re-post what I told my Hypo-Thyroids' team:
"I had a 'moment in the spot light' today.
Two of my sisters, Dad, and I met with a lawyer to discuss financial issues dealing with mom and dad's futures.
We did that for about an hour and half. The lawyer left. We talked a bit more and decided we girls would go see Mom.
All of a sudden, Sis #1 stands up and says, "I have to brag about Sue a minute."
I just looked at her and thought, "What have I done well for mom or dad lately???"
She just looked at Sis #3 and Dad, then pointed to me and said,
"SHE swam FORTY LAPS the other day!!!!! That's like 80 times from one end of the pool to the OTHER! I've never even swam ONE LENGTH of the pool before! and she swam it EIGHTY!!!"
Wow...I guess she was impressed. I had mentioned it to her on Tuesday when we were visiting the new nursing home. And it must have been on her mind all week?
But that was really kind of her. "
So I guess the WOW comes when you take a minute to reflect on how far you've come. It was last October when Spark encouraged me to pick up an activity that I loved, and I chose Swimming. And I'm STILL loving it, so that's good.
I've NEVER DONE ANY kind of activity for this long.
Do I hear a Hoorah?
