Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - May Day Blog Series - Day 30
Tuesday, May 30, 2017
Hard to believe that 30 days have gone by since I started this blog series and as much as I feel like I've been working very hard, the measurable numbers do not show any significant progress. To be sure I've had my days when I have gone off the reservation, but for the most part I have been more committed to this set of goals than I have been in a long time. To say this is discouraging is kind of an understatement, but what are you going to do?
Anyway, I can report that the new blood pressure medication seems to be working pretty well, as my pressure readings have been lower than they were before I started taking it. So hopefully that will continue to happen, and I will just continue to put myself in the best place within my power for the next two weeks.
As for the goals, here's my report:
1. commit to eating my planned meals and snacks, and no more - The thing about not seeing progress on the scale is that it gets more and more difficult to work as hard at this goal. I didn't go crazy this weekend, but I could have done better. I guess the good news is that the scale hasn't gone up with a little relaxed eating.
2. do one seated workout of the several I have found on SP daily - I have grown increasingly sore as time as gone along. I did do my pre-surgery PT exercises, and continue to make those a priority.
3. set aside 15 minutes in the middle of every day, just after lunch, for prayer/meditation - I have been praying more, but probably haven't given myself that full amount of time. I'm in a better place, though.
4. Blog- not since Friday, but I'm not as much on the computer over the weekend, and here I am today
So today I will just keep my oars in the water and hopefully glide towards June 15. I guess I've kind of re-adjusted my goal to being not too high, not too low...somewhere in the middle is okay.
