So, anyway, my laptop died, which is lame. This doesn't mean anything other than I don't have my very own computer that I can use to make infrequent posts. I use my husbands and it's very frequently occupied.
All ridiculous excuses aside. It's been going well and it's been going tough, this counting down to 40.
So, where am I with this?
1) Do a better job keeping my whole house clean. My kid is 6. He can
start to pitch in with his own mess. I can sit on my ass less. I can
be proud of my home. I don't need to knit for 3 hours per day.
Welllllllllllll, not much to see here, move along. All jokes aside, some things are improving. We all have work to do here. But there's plans to create a playroom and remove the LIVING ROOM mess, which is the mess that makes me craziest.
Strength training. I've got to do it. Period. I'm going to do
strength on Tuesdays, Thursdays and on Saturday when my trainer hands my
ass to me for 90 minutes.
This will never not be a struggle for me. I try, but I am not motivated to do it. I have to get motivated.
3) Cardio. I'm going to start running again as soon as the sidewalks clear. I'll be taking the dog for daily walks until then.
Blah, Stupid foot. I have an injury. It's been 3 weeks, it's not getting better. So, I said 'Eff It" and ran with the dog. It went ok and hurt no more than walking on it.
Stretching. Yoga and I are going to rekindle our relationship. This
will help with the pain that comes from numbers 2 and 3.
This could be better. I'm doing a sun salutations challenge right now. That totally counts, right?
Food. I've been doing well on that regard, but it can always be
better. I'm going to continue to watch what I put in my mouth and
remove my reliance on man-made food. I'll eat what I have and then make
a positive change for my health and for the health of my family.
Awful, devastating, terrible. Sugar addiction is kicking my ass lately. I'm working on it and taking things day by day. Counting points even when it sucks to do it. That's all I've got.
6) Push Ups. SOME WAY, SOME HOW I am going to do 40 push ups on my toes.
This? I've got this in the win column. I did 40 push ups on my toes last night. It was 2 sets of 10 and 4 sets of 5 but I did it. I just need to work on doing first all 40 in sets of 10, then 45 in sets of 15, then 40 in sets of 20, then 50 in sets of 25 and THEN JUST DO THEM ALL, OK?
Thanks for reading, touching base with me and reminding me I have a blog. I need ALLL of these things. I'm here, I'm clipping along and I'm still trying too hard to figure it all out.
