Today did not start out well. I hope it’s not a sign for the week to come.
Apparently, I fell asleep (rather early) on the couch last night and failed to turn my alarms back on before I did. I had a migraine since Saturday night, so I was especially tired. I’m sure you can see where this is going. I woke up at 7:45 this morning. My work day starts at 8. It take 15 minutes to get to work. So, needless to say, I was late. It could have been worse, I ended up only being about 30 minutes late, but still. I hate being late to work. And I hate not having to time to at lest fix my hair. Basically, it has thrown my whole morning off–probably will continue to throw the whole day off. But what can you do?
This weekend was quite busy, good busy, hence the lack of blogging. I ended up going to my Aunt’s house around noon on Saturday to
help watch my cousin, Cassidy, get ready for prom. I didn’t do much more than offer my opinion when asked for it, but it was still fun to be there. She looked gorgeous (which isn’t surprising, because she’s beautiful), as you can see in the pictures below.
I got to see my Mama, finally! I was so happy to see her & spend just a little time with her. And she & David brought my lawn mower, which David had fixed up (which was extremely nice of him). I even mowed my front yard yesterday, before the migraine set back in.
I thought I had alot more to say today, but I’m drawing a blank now. This happens to me way too often. I know there was something else…
Well, it’s Earth Day…so Happy Earth Day!
Oh! Health. That’s the other subject I was planning on writing about!
So, I’ve been eating healthier, which is good. My mom even said she could tell I had lost a little weight, which is fantastic to hear. But, even though I’ve been eating better, I still haven’t been exercising. Good intentions, right? Well, not anymore. Remember last week how I mentioned my 5k plan? I’m starting to work on that goal this week. No more procrastinating (on this subject–that doesn’t necessarily apply to other areas of my life). I have two different 5k plans to try. I will probably just do a trial and error sort of thing to figure out which one works best for me. I also have a binder chock-full of workouts that I’m breaking out, and I have a Biggest Loser bootcamp DVD that I’m going to start again. Tonight, I’m going to sit down, go thru everything, and come up with a workout plan, take my measurements, etc. Then tomorrow, it’s on.
For those of you who don’t know, I hate to run. I mean hate it. (Actually, I pretty much hate exercise of all kinds.) But I wish I liked it. I can see the appeal–the exercise, the adrenaline, the mid-clearing aspect…but I’ve never liked it. So, I’m hoping that this changes. I’m not deluding myself into thinking that I’m going to fall in love with it. I’m not that naive. But I really hope I learn to like it, at least a little bit.
Needless to day, encourage to stay the course will be greatly appreciated/needed. Because I’m definitely going to want to quit. So please don’t let me. I want to feel good. I want to feel healthy. It’s so much more than just how my body looks. I want to get my habits in check now, so that I’m not passing on my bad, unhealthy habits to my children (when I actually have human children, that is).
So, yeah. I think that pretty much covers things for today…”think” being the operative word after this morning.
