Life Changes

Monday, September 01, 2014

Happy Labour Day to All those celebrating it. To others I hope you have a Wonderful Day.

Had a very nice bike ride on Sunday. If I was going biking by myself I would have cancelled but because I had a partner I had to live up to my commitment. So, there is living up to your commitment and going through the motion. At first it started out very slowly (gong through the motions) and I thought I would only do the short course. But after about 30 minutes my reserves seem to arrive (living up to the commitment) and I was able to complete the long course. I did not want to let the team down - so in this instance peer pressure was a good thing.

This is the 1st day of DS senior year. So our routine begins again. DS decided to switch soccer teams and I've not really gotten over it. He told me about 5 days ago. He has been with the soccer team since he was 4/5 years old. My nephew has been with that time before that - so I've been associated with that team for about 20 years. The team is called the Bears and I thought I'd be a Mama Bear for life. But I'm gonna be a Western Mama - that's the name of the team he's going to Western Warriors. It's totally his decision.

    Good for you for getting on that bike. Positive friends do help a lot. I hope the new team works well for you both.

I cannot believe that I didn't come on SP at all yesterday. I went for a walk yesterday at 4:30a.m. for an hour and then went to bed. Got up around 11am & cooked which was about 2hrs & then had a steady diet of college football along with tennis.
Plans the day are to go to a social event in the afternoon & riding the bike in the evening.

    Hi I actually think that is really good, it is good that you have been active regardless. When you get time to hoop that will be the right time. I find it fun and as weather has been rainy I hoop when watching my favourite programme. No more couch potato for me!

Had a pretty good eating day yesterday. When I came home I cooked dinner for DS - 'faux' lasagna (no cottage cheese/ricotta cheese) just a variety of hard cheeses. But he did not know the difference. I settled for some 'homemade' cheesy bread. It didnot turn out too well - so I pulled off the cheese.

I went for a run - doing laps around a nearby park. When I exercise I usually feel free but yesterday I kept thinking about work and I didn't like that. I'm doing some transitioning mentally and I am ruminating on that process. I told one of my emoticon that I'd do ST today before Zumba so that is the plan.

  Next time try asiago cheese on your bread. It's an Italian cheese that is wonderful.

Thankful Tuesday

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Yesterday was a good eating day. I came in just under 1500 calories. I made dinner for DS but I stuck to my planned meal. Went swimming yesterday. The water was choppy and there was a lot of seaweed in the water. I did 20 minutes and left. There is a storm travelling so we have overcast skies and scattered showers. The sea is murky - the sediment at the bottom is churning up hence the seaweed floating on top.

Should have gotten up this morning and exercise but I was tired. The aerobics instructor for the evening class is on vacation, so I've got to find something to substitute for it. Been watching the U.S. Open and the Youth Olympic Games as well as the Vuelta de Espana. Love all the sports on TV. American Football starts this week. emoticon

My DS passed some external exams and I am very proud of it. We got to start the college selection process. This is his last year in high school. I can't believe we are at this stage. I remember his first day in school when he went to kindergarten. I walked him to class. Wow!!! I hope he remains healthy and happy. So I give thanks today.

    Boy, does time fly! Our girls finished college this year and it is so hard to believe! Great job on the workouts, hope you find an alterntive while the instructor was away. We got back late yesterday evening and I was going to go for a run this morning but I had to much work to get caught up on. So planning on an evening run. Have a great day!
