Happy President's Day
Love having Mondays off. Of course, that means that the week will be brutal. Who knew that 3 days could be so long.....oh, well, it's only 3 days. We go back tomorrow and the week is already half over.
I got up yesterday morning and did yoga. It was brutal. I got up this morning and did yoga. It was slightly less brutal. I think about how flexible and bendy I used to be and I realize that I have a long way to go. That's okay as long as I am moving forward. I hit my step goal yesterday!! Yay me!!! I think that was the first time I hit my goal on purpose. I jumped on the treadmill around 3 pm and just walked until I made it. So now Garmin has upped my goal by 300 steps. Game on. I really want to go hiking today. Nothing too strenuous, just get out in nature and move. There are some easy hikes close to us, and I really want to go.
I went to the library yesterday for 2 1/2 hours and worked on my dissertation. Yay me!!!! Love being productive and successful. I even got a nap in yesterday. Yay me!!!
Well, I ended up having such a busy day I never finished this. So we went to the dog park and then came home and had breakfast. Around 10 am we headed out to go for a short hike. We ended up hiking for an hour or so and had a really good time. We just went up South Mountain which is close. It was a beautiful day and it was fun. It hurt. No lie. My feet hurt, my ankle hurt, it hurt. But I did it and I didn't die. We came home and relaxed for a couple of hours. I did fall asleep on the couch for a short time. Then we took the dogs to Cesar Chavez park and walked around the lake. The kids loved it and they are passed out now. Everyone needs to lose a couple of pounds so everyone has to move more. They loved it. Bella struggled a bit, but with some consistency and weight loss, she will get into shape.
Okay, I'm tired and I need to start making my way to bed. Good night.
