After a slight detour, I'm
The last 3 days, things have really gotten off track. I thought that yesterday, Friday, would put things right again but I was wrong. Yesterday found me not drinking enough water - again - not eating lunch at a reasonable time, sitting on my butt for far longer than I anticipated, and drinking and eating fast food last night. So that is over and done and the door is officially closed on last week. Today starts a whole new week.
I have a few things I need to do this weekend. First, I must work out a workout plan. I have not done any sort of serious workout in a month now. Time to get moving again. As I said yesterday, I really, really, really want to build upper body strength and cardio endurance, so those things will be my focus. Today I want to research some upper body routines and try out the dance program I signed up for. My foot is still bothering me and I need to be careful with it, but I'm tired of not doing anything. I would also like to add in some yoga for flexibility and mobility. Maybe an upper body routine and a little yoga in the morning and dancing at night? I will have to work that out and then create a schedule and stick to it. I am determined to change my life this time. I have goals, be Crossfit ready by Jan 1st.
I also need to work out a schedule to work on my dissertation. That has seriously been hit or miss and I'm kind of tired of thinking about it. I want to get into the habit of working on it and then I won't have to think about it so much. I find that I only think about things when I'm trying to avoid them. So I just need to schedule it and do it and then I can stop thinking about it.
Speaking of thinking about it, I have a certified letter from a lawyer and it is freaking me out. I could just go pick up the letter and end all the worry and speculation, or I could continue to dwell on it and freak out about what it is. Hmmm, tough choice right? I think I will do that right now and just get it over with. When I realized it was from a local law firm, I immediately thought of my idiot neighbors. It would be just like them to file some sort of frivolous law suit. But I honestly don't think it is them. Well, I'll see because I'm going to go get it now.
The lawyer letter is from our stupid neighbors over the freaking parking. Oh, they have started a fight they are not going to like at all. I don't need this now, but it could be fun.
