So, here we are. Twenty-five days into the new year (if my math is correct). Are you where you thought you’d be? Have you kept up with all of those “goals”?
I’ve been struggling personally with depression–without the distraction of lots of little people, it becomes a bigger problem. And I was chatting with a friend about it. I was saying that the good news is that tomorrow is a new day.. so, I can always just start over again on whatever journey or plan or goal that I have each new day if one day is ruined for whatever reason. And she reminded me that our days can start whenever we’d like–how cool is that?!? So, if the morning is bad, you can start again that next hour.. lunch or dinner or whenever you like.
You’re the boss applesauce.
I love that!
So, I have to brag on myself a bit.. I have been sticking to my goal of a mile a day. I’ve actually been whooping up on that goal! I’ve already gone 35 miles! This would take me?? I need to get out a map and figure it out. Maybe next month I’ll track my journey on streets and see where I could have gone while I’ve been running on the hamster wheel.
I can’t say that I’ve lost any weight. Well, I guess I could… but that would be a total lie.
But, it is getting easier to do the workout. And I’m moving faster. And I enjoy it. Well, I don’t know if I enjoy the actual time on the treadmill, but I love having done it. I love the sense of accomplishment that I get from that time on the machine. One of my biggest gripes about my “job” is that I never get anything done, there’s always more laundry or another meal… I can finish a workout. And I can be proud of it being done.
I wish I could say that I’m energize for the day ahead afterwards, but that’s not true at this point.
Actually, the last couple days I’ve been really nauseous in the mornings. Yesterday it hit me after the kids finished breakfast. Today I nearly fell over in the shower. Any clue what’s up with that? I’m thinking that it might be the new vitamin that I’ve been taking. Ugh.
Anyhow, I have a feeling that in time, the workouts will give me more than just the fact that I did something. But, I’ll take what I can get for now.
