November 26 - Post Thanksgiving I've Gotta Do Something Blues- Seven Day 10 Minutes of Exercise a D

Monday, November 26, 2018

I decided yesterday that the time has come for me to at least THINK about what is going in my mouth and how my body is feeling. I've been eating and lying around like a slug for too long, and have all kinds of pain (my bad hip is starting to hurt, my knees hurt, my legs hurt), and I'm having all sorts of digestive issues because I'm making terrible food choices. These have been a challenging last few months, but I can't keep making excuses.

So I joined a challenge to do 10 minutes of exercise for 7 days. I found a 12 minute low impact cardio workout and did it. I have tracked my breakfast, lunch and morning snack. I am drinking water. And I've made a list of things I need to get done today, and am actually checking things off.

I have been out of work for a few months and though I have been looking for a job, I have also not used that time to put my life in good order. I have decided that I must now do so. I feel like I'm getting closer to being able to make intelligent decisions about my next step, and so I feel like I will find something in the not too distant future. I want to be ready, physically, mentally and spiritually, to hit the ground running when that happens.

So if you've taken the time to read this, thank you for any good thoughts you can send my way. Though I Spark quite often with a couple of very dear friends, I think it's time I reacquaint myself with the wider support network Sparkpeople has always provided. That means giving as well as receiving, so please know that I will be sending you my very best, too.

Have a wonderful day.
