Well … about a week ago I told you guys that I was going to change my whole routine -from how I sleep, to how I blog right down to getting some regular exercise.
So it’s only a week but I have made some progress. No major changes on the sleep front unfortunately, that’s still messed up, but I have gotten into a little better routine with my blogging and I pulled out the elliptical machine and started using it for 30 minutes each day. I do hope to build up to an hour or so of doing ellipticals each day or at least most days, but that will take some time.
Now if I can only get our dog Midnight to stop pretty much pulling me off my feet every time I take her outside we could start taking longer walks again. Earlier today she got excited when she saw a woman walking two dogs and at first she obeyed my command to sit and not bark, but I don’t know if one of the dogs made some kind of move when I wasn’t looking, but all of a sudden Midnight stood up and started running towards the other dogs with me dragging behind. The leash slide through my hand so fast that three of my fingers on my left hand still hurt. Boy was I mad at Midnight!
That’s what I’m dealing with on that front … but she’s pulling less and less each month so maybe walks with her can become part of my fitness routine again soon too. And of course, hopefully I start to sleep better again too.
Are you working on any goals to improve your health?
