Thursday, May 11, 2017 - May Day Blog Series - Day 11
Thursday, May 11, 2017
I'm a little nervous to write this, because I feel like I'm on a little bit of a roll, and sometime I find when I talk too much about that, I derail myself. But I will take the risk, because let's face it, that is something that is totally within my control and this whole journey is about controlling the things we can, so it is time to do that.
I had a very good day yesterday, and I truly feel very good. Now yesterday, I wondered if I was feeling a "placebo" effect from the Shakeology, but today, I'm thinking there's more to it than that. Because I haven't had this kind of energy for quite a long time. Wouldn't it be interesting if I was sabotaging myself all along by not eating well enough, or not taking vitamins? Well, I'm not going to ponder that, because what I might have been doing in the past is not something I can do anything about; I can, however, learn from it and move forward, and that is what I intend to do.
As for my goals, here's what happened yesterday:
1. commit to eating my planned meals and snacks, and no more - did well on this yesterday
2. do one seated workout of the several I have found on SP daily - I did all my PT exercises yesterday, and my niece, my personal Physical Therapist in training, worked on my hip and surrounding muscles last night, and I have to say I feel better today than have in a long time
3. set aside 15 minutes in the middle of every day, just after lunch, to pray/meditate - Check
4. report my daily progress in this May Day blog series - Check
So for the very first time, there has been real progress on 4 out of 4 of my goals. I like that. Today, I am hoping that I can get a little more activity in. Going to see if I can find a short seated workout to start with. Baby steps..
