My husband has had training the first three days of this week which is putting us off our normal schedule. Late days in the office has this girl T-I-R-E-D. Tomorrow should be our regular eight hour shift and then working from home on Friday.
Our eating has not been well this week. Breakfast and lunch have been reasonable, but by time dinner comes around we have been too tired and resorted to take out. Darn, an excuse found its way again. Even though I thought about it, I didn’t follow through and prepare meals for these nights. The week is not over and I will finish it strong, starting with eating better all day tomorrow.
On Monday, I went to the park by myself to take a walk. There weren’t too many people at the park, otherwise I might not have gotten out of the car. I knew I wouldn’t be able to do much, but wanted to start somewhere. Actually, I started walking last week while at mom’s. However the walking done last week was in short bursts of maybe five minutes at a time. I would do several short bursts a day to help loosen up the legs which were feeling quite tight (as they are again this week).
Monday, I wanted to make it around a small loop at the park. I was a bit nervous because there is no place to sit down and rest on this loop. It turns out the loop took me about fourteen minutes. I had to stop a couple of times because my back and/or shoulders were hurting. After I finished the loop, I wanted to push myself to do more, but by then my back was really achy and my hamstrings were as well. Rather than tire out the back too much, I stopped. While it wasn’t a great distance, it’s a start and I’m glad that I did it. Now, I just need to get back there and do it again. Maybe I will tomorrow evening.
Thanks for all the comments on my last post and the suggestions regarding Paleo. I will be ordering some books and trying to learn more about it, especially recipes.
How is your week going? Got sun? We do and it has been nice, but it will be changing by the weekend. Come on, it’s Seattle, what else would I expect. Have a great one!
