Yesterday made it 21 days
Thursday, July 12, 2018
Some of you may remember that I challenged myself to shut down my computer around 8:30 p.m. and do some gentle yoga stretching and foam rolling. Well, I'm happy to report that I have met my goal for 21 days - sort of. The most important part of the goal, turning off the computer and getting down on the mat, has been met. However, it hasn't always happened by 8:30 p.m. and it hasn't happened in my lovely sitting room.
For example, Wednesday night is my Bible Study night and last night I didn't get home until 8:45 p.m. The first thing I need to do is play ropes with my little Daisy - lucky for me it was even too hot for her so we didn't play very long. Then there's the last time of checking my email and finishing up on Spark and closing out everything else I had been working on during the day, which took about 45 minutes. So by the time I was done and ready to relax it was nearly 10:00 p.m. So I turned on the news and did my yoga and rolling on the living room floor while listening to the local news. I do love our local news - they make a point of finding good news to talk about every day! 20 minutes later I was done just in time to watch the weather.
Then there's the weather which, like for so many others, is not real good. Daisy and I have been getting out before 7 a.m. but this morning even little Daisy was dragging by the time we got home after just a 1 mile walk. This is where she lays when I am in my office - her feet are up again the heat register and it must be a cool spot with the AC on. The photo is a bit blurry but you get the idea.
Wishing you all a perfect day today in whatever you do. I have decided not to go to the gym today because my legs and back have been bothering me a bit. But mostly because I am having lunch with a friend I haven't seen in awhile and I want to be at my best! For the rest of the day I'm staying inside!
