I love Friday’s. There’s an excitement I get knowing that my husband and daughter are home for the next couple of days. We have a busy weekend though. Well, Elizabeth has a busy weekend – dancing both Saturday and Sunday.
I was messaging back and forth with a friend and I asked her to let me know if she had suggestions about my blog, she follows me on a regular basis. There are days when I don’t feel like I have as much to share. I’ve told you that my intentions are to share struggles, provide tips and to motivate. She told me that anything I face daily could be helpful to someone, that most days she relates to what I say in some way. Sharing how the hell I’m planning on getting through a weekend – whatever. So here we go! Today I have done nothing but relax. Bailey and I didn’t go to the gym, she was busy. We’ve worked really hard this week – my lower sides and the back of my legs are sore. I’ve had a hard time deciding if I want today to be my day off – at this point it certainly looks like its going to be!! I am really a morning workout person. I had my morning chat on twitter. I have been on twitter for probably a year but just following, not sending tweets. I started my blog and I set up a new twitter account. I have weight loss and epilepsy contacts. It’s awesome! The information you can find is great. I now have my morning twitter chats with my UK friend. Crazy right? It’s awesome. We both have epilepsy and are actually very similar in many ways. She motivates me – accepting my condition and working through daily issues.
So I have done no workout, I haven’t had enough water and I have grazed on food. I haven’t eaten anything substantial. I am not a die-hard robot that always makes the best food choices and never skips a workout. I’m not! Oh, I certainly can be! I can have will power like you have never seen. If I’m game on, you could put my favorite food in front of me and I won’t eat it!! If you do twelve push ups, I’ll do thirteen. Most of the time, I am in the middle. Don’t think you have to be hard-core. I know I’ve typed about falling off track and getting back on. Still very true! We don’t have to be hard-core to get healthy. Never think that someone who has weight loss success is forever perfect in their lifestyle change. Stay strong!!
