A new plan

Image
The plan I had clearly is not working. Last week I worked out 3 times. That is better than not working out at all, but I want to work out more. Also, I have things I need to work on that are not getting done. So it's time for a new plan. Here goes will I talk it out.....

I get up around 6 every morning, make coffee and feed the birds. By 6:30 I'm ready to sit down and drink my coffee. It is at this point that I usually get on the computer and see what happened overnight and in the early morning hours. Sometimes I spend only 15 minutes, other times I can be there an hour or more. If I manage to drag myself away, I workout. If I don't get away from it I don't workout. That has to change. So starting tomorrow, no online stuff in the morning. I will get up as usual, make coffee, feed the birds, and sit outside to drink my coffee. After no more than 30 minutes - or at 7 am - I will workout. If I manage to workout I will frequently sit down at the computer when do…

Workout update:

Last time I did Bob's Cardio was on Sunday and I suffered through it. I had to reduce my weights to 3 lbs and I thought I was going to throw up a lung. There were some moves I could not do at all and basically had to sit out. Well today - wow!!! I used the 5 lb weights through the whole thing. I did every move - although I may not have done as many as the DVD people did - I did them!! And I felt pretty darn good through the whole thing. I was pushing myself, but I was strong enough to push through it and not barf up my lungs doing it. Awesome!! It really is amazing how quickly the body responds when given the right stimulus. This success just motivates me a whole lot and I want to keep going to see how far I can take it. Enough for now, I have other things on my to-do list, but I feel awesome and proud of myself. I rocked it!!!!!

Just passing through

Thought I'd pop in real quick before I start my day. Summer school begins today and I have to work tonight. In my mind I keep thinking that it will be a busy day. Yet, when I look at it logically, I will have hours of open time. So it's not going to be that busy. What I need to do is reframe the way I look at my day. I have plenty of time to do everything I want, and need, to do, I just need to get the busy part out of my head. Today looks like this:

Workout from 7 - 8 Train Bella from 8 - 8:30Shower, eat breakfastGet ready for summer school 9 - 9:30 Head out to school 10Teach 11-1Head home 1:15Stop at the bank 1:45Eat lunch 2ishOpen market 3ishWork   4-10There is a little bit of down time built into that schedule and some things won't take as long as I've indicated. So I need to just chill and roll with the day.  Right now I need to work out so I'm off.

Quick Update

Saturday I worked out twice and felt really good. Sunday I got up and was sore, but it was a good sore so I worked out again. By Sunday night my back was killing me. Not only my back but my periformis in my butt, my shoulder, my arm, clearly I had done something that was throwing my entire right side out of whack. I didn't sleep well Sunday night and so I wisely decided to rest yesterday. By last night the back, shoulder and legs were feeling much better. I slept pretty good last night but I've still got some weird back pain going on this morning. I have decided to take another day off. I have to go to school today and I have to work tonight, so it's not like I'll be laying around all day doing nothing. I would rather take a day or so off now than to really injure myself and be laid up all summer. So that's it for now. I have a bunch of school work to do and I need to get it all done before 10 am - so I am off......
