If you read my last post "Pushing 50 is the Only Exercise I Get," then you know I am on a one year mission to get into shape before that dreaded birthday arrives. I don't wanna be Fat and Frumpy 50, but rather Fit and Fabulous 50. It's been a week, and I'm not there yet, can you believe it? LOL Nope, I have a long road ahead of me. I've found myself wondering if a year is even enough time. I need a LOT of work.
It didn't start out too well. Actually I didn't start out to well. Literally. The very next day after I posted my ambitions to get it together, I came down with a nasty bug. So much for exercising, organizing, and eating right. The bug had me down pretty much all weekend. I really didn't even think about my new goals until yesterday. I did get a hold of my hairstylist niece, and I'm hoping to get my hair cut Monday. If I do, I'll probably get around to coloring it some time next week.
I don't think I've taken any of my supplements all week. Maybe once. Not yet today. I am going to have to add that to my "things to do" before I allow myself on facebook list.
My laptop is broken, so I haven't researched any natural cures for asthma. I'll get to it...
I did get an under the bed shoe organizer for like $3.75, and organized all my shoes! Woohoo! I have a tiny room and nowhere to put them but under my bed. It's always been a challenge to crawl under it and find two to match. Now I can! I also cleaned out a box of papers that had taken on a life of its own. It is now my "stationary" box, which is what it was supposed to be all along.
I can't say I've done anything really fun with the kids. Too much sickness around here. (I wasn't the only one with a bug.) Perhaps today I'll get outside with them for a bit.
Yesterday I really did try to keep my food portions small. I promise. :)
I still haven't missed a day of Bible reading.
Now for the big news. I WENT TO THE GYM TODAY!!! Yes, my dear friend Barb came and picked me up at 9:00 a.m., and off we went. I only did 15 minutes on the treadmill, which was enough to make me feel light-headed and my legs feel wobbly. But I did it. I did it. I did it. I did it!!!
