Day 38: A Busy Day
Saturday, January 18, 2020
Yesterday was a super busy day. I didn't have time for a lot. I picked Fritzy up early from school because of the snow storm that was coming, so I didn't have time for a lot of the things I normally do, but I enjoyed the day with him a lot. We baked chocolate chip muffins and we went grocery shopping and he got a little toy. It was a really good day in all and I'm up early today to try to get some things done before he wakes up. I cleaned the family's fridge for them as I'm the only one that will do it and it gets messy fast as they are always buying food but they don't tend to really eat what they buy! My fridge is usually pretty empty because I don't buy much and when I do Fritzy and I always eat our food.
I did a strength training workout this morning. It feels like I hardly ever get to do strength training workouts! I have missed my ST workouts the past couple of weeks it seems like cos I only do one a week; I have so many different kinds of workouts to do each week and if I miss one then it seems like an eternity till I get to do that particular workout again. It just feels like I hardly ever get to lift weights anymore. I used to do nothing but lift weights! Although I have to be careful about lifting weights right now with my broken ribs. I can only lift 1 lb weights right now. I tried lifting 2 lb weights and it was just too much for me. So right now I'm taking it easy. I got in a good workout though, although it felt tough this morning. I wasn't even sure I was going to make it through the whole workout, but I did. My ribs are sore this morning and for some reason I'm just sore all over. So I'm looking forward to my ice bath and the foam roller tomorrow.
I'm taking ownership of my poor diet. I realized I haven't been eating as well as I thought I was. I lost a couple of pounds lately when I started eating better. We got groceries yesterday and I made a better meal plan. I've decided to start making some small changes to the way I eat and make improvements over time.
I wasn't able to meditate yesterday. Things were just so busy time got away from me. I still feel my mindfulness practice is going well, though, and I know that not to meditate is loss so I will be trying to meditate today.
Didn't have a chance to read yesterday either. I was so busy all day that it seemed like I never sat down. I did read multiple chapters of both books the day before, though, so I'm still doing okay on reading.
Listened to a podcast on nutrition yesterday. While I didn't agree with everything he said, it did make me think more about nutrition. I've been really great about tending to all the other facets of fitness, but I've been lacking in the nutrition department. It's time to start focusing more on that in the coming weeks.
My next nonsmoking day is tomorrow. I'm ready for it and I think it will be easier this time.
I didn't drink any water yesterday but I will work on that more today.
That's all for now. More later.
