Kind of proud of myself

Wednesday, January 13, 2021

So I have exercised 3 days in a row. That's a record for me lately. I have been getting a day here or there, but no regularity. Hoping this is a new trend, praying God helps me stay on track with this, I feel so unfit right about now. I need to get on track with this and I will work on my eating habits as well, but not as intensive as I will when I see improvement on my body shape and flexibility. I don't want it to get overwhelming so I am working on consistently working out first and then when it becomes habit as it was in the past, and I can see results which usually keep me on track, I will work more intensively on eating -which means more vegan meals, trying new healthier recipes, etc. Not to say that I won't choose wisely, I will, but not go full tilt until I am working out regularly/habitually.

Feeling pretty good about it all today- sad yesterday at things I cannot do. Balance is not the best since I stopped yoga. Will have to throw in some yoga videos I think and work on core strength as I have very little now. Have a hernia and have been babying my core which has resulted in nothing good. Have another CT scan at the end of the month and we will see what shape that is in. As a cancer survivor those are always preceeded with dread though. My shoulders bother me and my hips as well. Hoping as I regain strength that subsides.

Doing more cooking at home has been good. Eating out a few times a month for breakfast, but not much. Purging stuff and doing projects. Making lots of cards to send out. Haven't made masks for quite a while. When I get all of my other projects done I am going to make cloth bowls to hold hot bowls coming out of the microwave. The cancer center calls them Neuropathy bowls. I need to learn how to make them. The lady who makes them is having recurrance issues-there are not many women who sew in the group so I want to learn in case I need to take that over. They are a pretty nifty thing even if you are not currently having cancer issues. I need to learn to knit and crochet a bit better. I am a one stitch wonder right now. Ha ha,,,

    I'm with you Cheri, got my butt in gear two days in a row now praying I can keep it going, have to say the weather doesn't help for walking which is my favorite exercise. I have some " senior citizen" LOL exercise CD's that work on balance and strengthening so I will use them on real bad weather days. Trying to eliminate most carbs, everything except fresh fruit and veggies.

    The bowls sound interesting. I sew so I would be interested in seeing a pic if you end up making any.
