I’m feeling better now, thankfully, but am just realizing how much a couple days set me back. Because I wasn’t doing ANYTHING besides feeling sick, I’m now a few days behind in work, personal projects, and exercise. Not a good thing considering I only have two weeks left here at Green Mountain to get a lot of stuff finished. I hate getting sick for so many reasons and getting behind is one of them! Playing catch up is no fun at all!
Anyway, thanks to everyone for the well wishes. I’m glad whatever was wrong with my only lasted a couple days. At least I had time to enjoy the beautiful views here!
EASING BACK INTO EXERCISE
I’m easing back into exercise like a good girl instead of rushing into things like I want. I did lower body conditioning yesterday and kickboxing at a low intensity. Today I’ve done/am doing water aerobics, yoga, and upper body weights on my own. Nothing too intense and just enough to fit into my schedule. After today, since I’m feeling good again, I’m ready to get back into it and make the next week really count so my last assessment is a good one.
WEIGHT, WEIGHT, GO AWAY?
I know that I haven’t focused much on weight while being here, and that’s because the focus really isn’t on weight. But I have to admit I am hoping to get to my next 5 lb milestone at the very least during this last assessment next week. I won’t be devastated if I don’t, but I think I can manage to lose at least a pound in the next week to reach that mark from my last assessment. I just like hitting goals, don’t you?
And I would like to lose another inch or two on my bottom half, mostly because I just started losing inches there. Isn’t it funny how weight wants to cling to certain parts of you? My body shape works so hard to keep all the surface area it has gained on the bottom. My thighs and hips refused to lose any inches for my first two months here. I lost over 4 inches on my waist before a sliver on my hips or thighs. That seems crazy, but it just goes to show you how impossible it is to control where you gain or lose weight on your body.
TIME TO ZONE OUT
I’m off now to work on a super secret craft project that may or may not become a Christmas present. It relaxes me and after a long day it is just what I need. Tedious craftwork that creates something awesome and useful! Do any of you do this to? Sometimes zoning out is just necessary… especially when you are about to leave Vermont in two weeks and have no idea where you will be living at that time or what you will do for money. Yes, zoning out is going to be good, because thinking about future things is something I’d rather avoid. Join me, will you?
