Fitness. Yes!

Hey all! Hope you're having a good week. I know I am! I think my race was a great motivator for getting me back in the swing of things. I've logged some exercise time (some non-traditional) almost every day since Saturday.... Sunday, Tuesday, and Today. Monday was spent doing things around the house. 

Sunday was full of some yard work which isn't your typical exercise but it did work the muscles and burn calories. It was nice to get some sun too. Sometimes it's a good change of pace to get some activity in that isn't the usual. Active rest days.... Those are great! If you're working  hard at typical exercise other days, enjoy those active rest days. 

Yesterday was a fairly light active day. My dogs were giving me sad puppy eyes when I was getting ready to head out so I decided to walk them instead of going out solo. I can't do much running when they're withe be side they get excited and go in different directions. And they get tired. By the end of the walk they're usually worn out. So we walked for a little over an hour. 

Today I ignored the sad eyes and left the babies at home. I wanted to give in and take them but I needed a little more intensity. I was put in between 35 and 40 minutes. I did a jog/walk combo. After not having done much running over the last couple months I have some conditioning to do. I'm not as fast and don't have the endurance I once had but that's okay. I can't look at where I was. I have to focus on where I am now and make goals for where I want to be. New goals. I can't say, " again" or "like before."  It's a new time and I need to build myself up. It isn't healthy to focus on the past (good or bad).  It's better to look at where you are and to set goals to get where you want to be! 

I suppose that's it for now. I was outside a lot tonight and all that fresh air wore me out. My boyfriend worked on cleaning up his Grandma's yard so I decided to go help. By the time I made it over there he was pretty much done. I moved a couple things and put the lawn mower away but it really wasn't much. He gets full credit there! At any rate I was outside with him in that fresh air for a couple hours. I'm definitely ready to snuggle up and get some sleep! 

Hope you're having s great week!!!

XOXO
