Well, so much time has passed and I have very little in the way of an excuse for my lack of writing. It is true I had the cold from hell for 2 weeks, and yes I was finishing up the last couple of weeks of Six Weeks in a Cast, but it seems that I have been spending a lot of time doing everything but writing. I have been reading many blogs written by others, finding old and new friends on Facebook, keeping up with my book club reading, attending social events and getting much-needed sleep. As Gretchen Rubin dictates in The Happiness Project, it is time to Aim Higher. I take that as a challenge, and being the Type A person that I am, I must have a continuous challenge, meaning there must always be something new to entice me.
I am getting my walking legs back and have joined a couple of women at my school in the Couch to 5k program, starting today. It is actually a great motivator and the best part is that there is an iPhone App. for the program. Basically you just select the music from your iPod to insert into the program, select the day and week of the program, i.e. today I was on Week 1, Day 1 and the program tells you what to do. I love it! It says, “Warm Up. Brisk walking” and then the timer counts down from 5 minutes. This continues through walking and running intervals and then a cool-down. The music plays in between voice commands. I actually RAN! That in itself is amazing. I did my workout, hit a few of the strength training machines and came home to eat my healthy dinner, take my Melaleuca vitamins and drink my water. Life is good.
Time to hop back on the treadmill.
