Day Off

Foot Fetish Heaven?

I extolled the greatness of exercise but today I’m taking a day off. I’ve over done it and my body is really aching. My feet hurt so bad this morning I had to grab walls to walk from bed to downstairs. I have bad feet to begin with, then I’ve been doing treadmill this week, shoes with heels for work, on my feet most of the weekend, day of rest for my piggies. I’m also extremely sore from a whole lot of gardening and mentally weary, busy busy busy AND a headache too. So far it’s been going well, I lost the weight I was supposed to lose last week, while still being able to have a dinner of pizza last week (you get one meal off) and a date night at a Mexican restaurant ( you also get a day off-I chose to only do dinner off-never took a day off from anything else). I drink my 3 liters of water every day and my face feels fantastic, hydration is a good thing.

On a another subject my kids are driving me nuts. One is almost 19 and one is 12, both girls and both cranky and hormonal most of the time. Which makes me the easiest target to go off on. I feel like I’m constantly being picked at by vultures, give me this, why don’t you do this, when an you buy me that, why did you do that,……… Mommy needs a martini.

Day Off

Saying a Little Prayer

I have posted so many times how much exercise makes me feel better mentally and each time after I stop exercising. I’m praying for the will and stamina to keep going every day. This competition I’m doing requires 20 minutes a day for the next 3 weeks and then I’ll have a week off..of the competition hopefully not the exercise, then I can do it again. There really is such a rush you get when you stop and it lasts a long time, and there is a certain satisfaction( I hesitate to say feeling of conceit) that I just did something many will never even attempt to do. I feel better, I don’t yet look better but I do to me-which is saying a lot if you know me at all.

I also gave up t.v. during the day, which is a rough one. It’s so easy to flip it on and some times it’s just background noise but sometimes it sucks me in when I’m supposed to be doing something productive. So far I haven’t broken that rule. I lose points if I do and I’m not losing points for the stupid t.v.

Just noticed the chap stick I got last week in Chicago at Trader Joe’s says Trader Johann’s on it, cutesy.

Have a great Sunday, supposed to be 99 degrees here, Doug and I are hitting the nursery for plants.

Random shot of Tracy taking a pic of the solar ellipse last Sunday night.

Dear Spanx stop sending me emails, you’re hurting my feelings. I mention you once on Facebook and this is the thanks I get? Daily emails.
