Get Back to Business

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I can feel myself recovering - got up 2 days in a row and went for a walk - a real stroll - aim is to make a major dent in the 10k steps. I not even up to speed or power walking. The aim is to just get in the routine of getting up in the morning. Of course I have a new gadget - (another) wireless headphone - so I'm practising using the controls to operate the device - Ipod. I'll then move to the Iphone because it can answer the calls etc... Hopefully, by then I'll be up to jogging.

The Futile Event is over. I can now concentrate on getting some personal matters dealt with - a scholarship for DS to go to college, sell some property and look how to make some more money. Of Course - Lose Weight - Run some more Marathons - Run Faster - Become Flexible (I'll then work on becoming more flexible).


Watch Out World

Monday, October 20, 2014

I should have cancelled my lunch yesterday and had I known the set up I would've. It was actually a party for about 30 - 40 people. I arrived on time and saw these tables set up and chairs. I was the 1st person there. I got there about 12:45 p.m. the crowd starting arriving about 2 p.m. I left about 3:30 p.m. and it was just warming up. I thought it was going to be about 3 of us and her family. I came home and went to bed. Feeling very rested this morning. Went out for a walk this morning and so should get in my 10K steps today. I must share this - I'm drinking a Virgin Mary - Tomato juice with Tabasco sauce, lime and black pepper. I've garnished it with a stalk of celery. Me drinking tomato juice. It's part of my effort to get my freggies in. For me and DS I made an omelet that had spinach and mushrooms in it.

No Stress

Sunday, October 19, 2014

I put me 1st and reduced my stress. I didn't go to the dance. I called in my apologies. I cancelled the Sunday morning ride. Went to bed last night and this morning I'm still in bed. The electrician came, my mom dealt with him. I'll keep the lunch appointment. I am feeling better.

Devil in Life

Saturday, October 18, 2014

Riding partner and I have done our 2hr bike ride this morning. I am mentally and physically tired and I'm going to bed after I do my sparking. It's overcast here and I think it'll rain later. I can say I got 10k steps in before 8 a.m. I need to wash my hair while I'm bathing but for hot water I've got to cross the yard and bathe by my mother because my water heater is not working. I've gotten the part for it but the electrician is taking his time in coming. He says tomorrow (Sunday).

This is just the devil - I'd planned to sleep late tomorrow and ride bike at 4 p.m. However, my riding partner wants us to ride at 5:30 a.m. - I agreed. A GF is having a lunch tomorrow at 12:30 p.m. I guess I can sleep between 8 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. But now the electrician has inserted himself in that time period. Did I mention that I'm supposed to go to a dance tonight? So that interrupts the sleep marathon that is supposed to start after SP. I also have some tasks to perform for a Challenge I'm participating in. Hey and to top if off Mom is putting so much effort into preparing a smorgasbord for us (really her grandson) - so I'll be surrounded by food too. I guess I can rest on Monday after the Futility Meeting and all these activities will make me too busy to OVEReat.

    No rest for the weary. Got my 12 done today and took a spill - tripped on a rise in the sidewalk but not hurt. Hope you get some rest.

    Yikes Ju!! I hope you can squeeze in some sleep! I feel that our bodies tell us what we need and yours is crying out for sleep! We are having a time with getting an electrition over to our house too! Glad you got your bike ride and steps in early! If you still need sleep perhaps you can skip the dance? good luck!!

Friday Funny

Friday, October 17, 2014

I've not been motivated to exercise since returning from my trip. Some suggest you rest others suggest light walking or jogging. But I've been in down mode - I want to exercise but in the morning I'm not feeling it and in the evening I'm not motivated. I've left work at 4p.m. everyday and don't seem to be able to get there before 9:30 a.m. I really just want to have a good lie in. I've got a bike ride planned for in the morning - so I seem excited about that - but that is always how it is until the time comes. I'm bottoming out after being on a high from the running and I need to have something else to shoot for.

I'd said I blog about my route - I need some more photos because I'm only showing one part of it and that is really not that interesting. So for this installment and in honour of Friday

Joe grew up in a small town, then moved away to attend college and law school. He decided to come back to the small town because he could be a big man in this small town. He really wanted to impress everyone. He opened his new law office, but business was very slow at first. One day, he saw a man coming up the sidewalk. He decided to make a big impression on this new client when he arrived.

As the man came to the door, Joe picked up the phone. He motioned the man in, all the while talking..

"No. Absolutely not. You tell those clowns in New York that I won't settle this case for less than one million.."

"Yes. The Appeals Court has agreed to hear that case next week. I'll be handling the primary argument and the other members of my team will provide support.."

"Okay. Tell the DA that I'll meet with him next week to discuss the details.."

This sort of thing went on for almost 5 minutes. All the while the man sat patiently as Joe rattled instructions. Finally, Joe put down the phone and turned to the man. "I'm sorry for the delay, but as you can see, I'm very busy.

What can I do for you?"

The man replied "I'm from the phone company..I came to hook up your phone."

    Funny! I think you should give yourself a bit of a break. You just did over 52.4 miles in a matter of stays plus the travel. That does take a lot out of a person. See if you feel like going on the bike ride. Maybe you do just need a good lie in!

    Cute. Yes, I do the painting and other projects around my actual work projects. About 7 years ago, I went the consultant route. (got out of a meeting this morning- smiling) Also, grew up in NJ - thus, fireflies.

    Ahahahahaha! I love it!

As for finding the drive to get up and get going....just do 10 minutes. That's it. If you still aren't feeling it after that then you can give it a break until tomorrow. 10 minutes. You can do that!
