Today is Day One for Firm Commitments to move every day
Saturday, January 12, 2019
Got in 45 fitness minutes today! I am really happy and proud of me for making a firm commitment to get back to doing Spark every day. Since it has been too long since I was able to do Spark every day, I decided to start with Day one of The Bootcamp.
Yep. Some of you know my relationship with Coach Nicole. She drives me nuts, and I get mad enough to try to keep up with her. Today was no different!
Ah yes. Day One. the kickboxing thing. I have never been good at that one, yet today I was determined to keep with it. It's a good thing no one had a video camera on me!
I start with the marching in place, swinging my arms like she does. Excellent so far. Then we go to the bends, kicking, swinging my arms, SHE does jumping jacks while I am picking myself up from the floor having fell trying to do the first one. She is SUCH a show off!!!
She moves on to side step, crouch, kick........none of which I do with grace. I get all mixed up on what I am supposed to be moving and where all my body parts are. My dog Bennie and Kitty Lucy bark and growl and dash out of the room. They know I am going nuts.
I do the stretch things well. That's because they are slow and one body part at a time. I can do this. We count down to being finished.
I did very well in not sassing back to Nicole. She's young, and has a lot to learn of life and getting old. I will forgive her impertinence today.
I actually can feel a difference in my body after my attempts of working out. I am proud that I tried and kept up trying til the very end.
Some of you are aware of the hell I have been living in for the past 7 years. It is time for me to make a new beginning. Committing to Spark every day is a new beginning.
The grieving of losing both Ted and Cindy will not go away. But if I just change one little thing......like Sark daily......I will get a grip on forming a new life for myself.
It is a beautiful day, no matter what the weather is. It is a day for me to commit to taking care of myself and finding energy, interest and focus.
I have joined a couple of teams that focus on people in their 70's. I think I will gain much from starting there. I was a long term member of the Spirited Underdogs, but signed up too late for the winter team. I will use my new teams to get me ready for the Dawgs in the Spring.
In the meantime, I will be putting a new life together. That is worth looking forward to!
I so appreciate all the messages gotten from my Spark friends. Your love and support mean more than words can say. You are bringing me back to life!! I thank you with all my heart.
