Bouncing around

Thursday, April 16, 2015

My journey has been interesting so far. Sometimes all goes well and sometimes it doesn't. I feel like I'm bouncing around instead of making steady progress but I can see that I am moving forward even if the path has been a little crooked.

I'm in my second week of the 5% Spring challenge and, so far, I'm doing okay. I have discovered that I can fit in more fitness on days that I work simple because I MUST schedule it in. On my days off, I have issues remembering that I need to do more than sit on the couch and watch all the TV I've missed. This is getting easier because I am starting to get really bored when I sit for longer than two hours. I have even started to get up between shows and do some strength exercises. While it's not much, it is something and I find that NSV to be motivating. I think my "just get it done" attitude is starting to stick but I won't take down that saying just yet. I need reminders that I can do it if I just put my mind (and body) to it.

And HAPPY DAY! All the parts necessary for graduate school have finally made it to the school of my choice. The application now goes through the review process and I should hear in a couple of weeks whether I have been accepted or not. I have my fingers crossed for the best.

    I have fingers crossed for you too.
    I know it's not for everyone but I don't have any TV so I'm not stuck watching shows for hours. I do crotchet and love to try to be creative with paint and pencil. I love going outside and gardening plus having flowers. I do have a tablet and a smart phone with fb so I'm not totally barbaric but I try real hard to limit my time on them

    I think it sounds like you are just doing fine and there are so many positives that have come together for you - success in 5% challenge, a desire for more consistent exercise, and, finally, all of the paper work completed for your college application. LIFE IS GOOD!

    I'm the same way with my exercise, I'm better at it on work days. Weekends are very busy for me with other activities, so sometimes its hard to fit it in. emoticon

    emoticon I'm so glad to hear that your paperwork all made it!!

    You're doing really well, most of what I'm doing is not really sticking at all. I think it is wonderful that you are finding it hard to sit still. emoticon
