Enjoying Life

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I think I forget that I'm suppose to enjoy each day to the fullest. I'm too busy running from job to job or helping others. That's not a bad thing. I just tend to forget me sometimes.

I stayed after work today and did my upper body work out and abs. I then had a pedicure done. Went home ate some lunch and played with the dogs. Picked up Fabian, then headed off to the tanning bed. Yes, I know it's not good for me, but it does make me feel good! My joints feel better, my mood is elevated and wow, is my smile whiter!!!

I started dinner and kicking back right now. My lower back isn't happy. I've been stretching, icing, sports cream, massage, resting! It felt better after class last night, but I moved some crazy way today and tweaked it again. I'm sitting with a pillow behind my back and ice on my lower right side. I've already dosed up with some ibuprofen for the anti-inflammatory effect. I will stretch again tonight before bed and put some sports cream on. It is wierd. I don't hurt while I'm working out. It's when I don't think about picking something up like a pillow! Guess I should keep my core thightened up all the time!!!

I have a couple more clients tonight. Depending on my back, I will do 30 minutes of cardio this evening. If my family will leave me alone long enough, may soak in the tub!

Positives:
1. Had a nice work out today.
2. Started the day with yoga...you just can't go wrong there!!
3. Took care of myself today.
4. Feeling good!

Strong Mind, Strong Body!

    Yeah, you ARE very busy all the time, I wondered how you "enjoy" yourself ... truly. I don't think that tanning beds are "bad" for you - as long as you take proper precautions, you know. LOL @ your "whiter smile"!!!
    Hope your back is feeling better - you're doing all the "right" things for it!
