If not now when?
Sunday, April 05, 2020
Hi all. I have come to the conclusion that this shut down is a gift. I always have excuses as to why I can't take care of myself, why I can't follow my plan. I always have to do something for someone else or be somewhere else, or I'm too tired.
That is no longer the case. I am fortunate enough to be working from home and I still have my family around me. However, I do not have to go to work and be gone for 12+ hours a day, I don't have to run my kids to practice or work, I don't have to go anywhere.
I can continue not taking care of myself or I can use this time to get into a routine and be healthier by the time I can start doing all of the other things in my life. I am hopeful I will feel so good that I will be able to find a new normal that involves taking care of myself once this happens.
*Write up my daily schedule and FOLLOW it:
*Strength Training, Zumba or dancing 7:15-7:45
*Walk one dog at lunch 12:00-12:30
*Walk the other dog when the school day ends - 3:30-4:00
*Stand up walk around and stretch every hour when my Fitbit buzzes at me.
I can do this.
