Day 1 of my new workout routine, Sunday, was half a success. I worked out in the morning, I spent time outside, but I did not get my walking or strength training in. I'm not upset though, I was super active and on my feet the day before, so much more than I normally do that my hips and feet were just one big ache by the time I went to bed! Sunday, I had an anxiety attack on the way home from church. I had forced myself to stay in church even though my anxiety was going up, and I should have just left. Having an anxiety attack while driving is not good! And it wiped out my energy for several hours, till I thought to drink some green juice.
Today I'm going to work on my plan, since I didn't really do that over the weekend, I stayed super busy Saturday and a mess on Sunday. I need a strength training plan for at least 3 days a week. So I'm going to say Monday, Thursday and Saturday. That best fits my schedule. I need to work on my school schedule as well. And my cleaning schedule.
The thing with my cleaning schedule is that while it looks good on paper, it never works in real life. Especially with me homeschooling. I have to be present for the kids, even when they are doing stuff on the computer or things they do by themselves. I guess I need to trim things down. Or rearrange them. My busiest day for cleaning is also my busiest homeschool day (Monday).
I'm going to set alarms on my phone to go off to remind me to go walking twice a day. I'll take the dog with me, he needs to learn how to walk on a leash better. He's such a mess. I'm thinking about getting training lessons from somewhere, I don't know how to train a small dog. If I get onto him or try to train him, he just runs and hides, and once he has decided that he is going to run away from you, there is no catching him. Poor thing was on the streets for months we think, so he still has that skittishness in him. He's gotten much better, but he still has a little of that leftover.
Got these babies in the mail over the weekend. I was such a mess last week I forgot to take them. Taking them, my adult acne all but goes away (I still get little ones every now and then). So not taking them for a whole week, my face broke out like you would not believe. I almost didn't want to go anywhere because of it. I hate having acne, but the Juice Plus, over time, gets rid of it. It gives me more energy, all kinds of things. But, that is an awful lot of big capsules to take. A lot.
My perfectionism often gets the better of me. If I can't do it perfectly, why do it at all, right? I struggle with this every day.
But here is the thing. I know I can do all these things I'm wanting to do. I was known as Suzy Homemaker at work because I always had things neat and tidy and well organized... and I baked cookies and brought them into work once a week. But I had things so well organized, that I know I can do that here too. I kept my workspace so neat and tidy, I know I can do it. Heck, before I joined the military I cleaned houses for a living! So I know I can do that. I have the 'how to' I just need the 'want to', and I think I'm finding it.
