Ahhh, the rain - it is back again! Many areas in flood stages. However I think it warms up some into the 60's for a brief spell. Normally we have our really freezing cold temps about now. I imagine it is yet to come.
Yesterday was fun. I wasn't sure I was quite through New Yearing just yet as I needed another day to put up Christmas things and vacuum but there is the weekend! And we have no plans for Saturday other than being home so I'll get that done then and also packing for Phoenix, in which I leave next Tuesday! I'm truly excited to get to go and do some hiking as well as see the Isagenix headquarters in a private tour.
Yesterday was important to me as a first "normal day" in January to establish routines and have plans in place for how to spend my time during the year. A cleanse day it was! I am now down to my lowest weight of last year again, after gaining 5 lbs from the holidays. So the body shed the gain pretty quickly over a week's time and that is with little cardio workouts but I was moving around a lot. Matter of fact, I do move around a LOT according to my Apple Watch. The watch is helping with breathing reminders and reminding me to stand after periods of sitting. I need to get into some cardio exercise though and have to work at finding time. I am holding off on the gym for now but keeping that in my back pocket. I can take George though, at this gym I'm looking at. We would be able to do it on the weekends mainly. Otherwise any plans for exercise I have to do at lunch time at our complex or in the neighborhood on the weekends. I'm not going in the dark anywhere. I'm not sure I even want to be at the gym parking lot. Life is getting pretty dangerous around Nashville and it often extends out into outlying areas. So this is tough for me in the winter time. I can and will do stationery exercising and that helps.
So I did some planning yesterday for the year and also had my goals of the day spelled out. It was a full day. I worked, worked through lunch, and left a bit earlier than normal as I had a cut and color scheduled. So that was done. I got home at 7:30 and my e+ shot was still in effect so I did laundry and then set into doing my "power hour" of connecting with folks and following up on some inquiries where I left people hanging during the holidays. I have a lot of interest and questions and inquiries but have not taken the time to follow up.
I've discovered to have an index card with the next day's power hour plans on them - helps me with the focus shifting from the HR hat to the nutrition hat in lightning speed. I enjoy this connecting with others. So I connected last night and it was great.
And bed felt good.
Today is my birthday and we are celebrating out with George and his sister and my brother in law. We are going to a special place that has excellent food! Looking forward to it too!
I see three gifts in the corner for me! Not sure what it is! But I bet it smells good and happy!
And I'm getting off of here so I can do a few things and scoot out hopefully early.
Ya'll take care! On to more coffee!
Oh and did I say I was back to my normal weight loss weight after gaining the 5 back during the holidays. They are gone already so starting the year with some new goals! Yay me! ;-) Or more properly Yay system! It's working!
