Getting Back my Blogging Groove
Today was a good day. The first thing I did after waking up was to get the bed made. I've found that the sooner I make the bed, the sooner I feel really motivated to start the day. Breakfast was cereal today, just as it's been for the last week or so. Every now and then I just get into a mood where all I want is the same food item for days at a time. Right now my craving is Cap'n Crunch. I know, I know...
Last night Brad had helped me sort the laundry, so that was the biggest project I undertook today. There was so much of it that it took almost all day. It feels good to have everything all clean and put away. The more time I spend being a "housewife" the more I find that I actually do have the capacity to keep things fairly neat. I like to be able to greet Brad at the door at the end of the day with a smile on my face and dinner almost ready for the table. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong decade. I wish we lived in a society where women who keep the home fires burning were given more respect and credit. I suppose that's why Dr. Laura wrote the book "In Praise of Stay At Home Moms." I really respect the SAHMs that I know. Kelly is the first one who comes to mind. She has the challenge of twins and her family shares living space with her grandparents who also depend on her. I respect her and am tremendously impressed by how she handles it.
Okay, back to my day. Laundry is finished and now I'm just hanging out enjoying the fruits of my labor and preparing for a restful weekend. Health-wise I'm doing well. My blood sugars are staying well controlled and I'm not short of breath at all. I think tomorrow morning while Brad's out shooting with our police pal, Jeremy, I'll hit the gym for some good cardio. That's my plan right now anyway. I did 2 miles on the treadmill the other day. Eventually I'd like to be able to do 5k--not to run competitively or anything, just something I want to be able to accomplish just on the treadmill would be fine. I've got a lot of work to do to get there though. Maybe I'm over-ambitious. So what?
Well, there you have it. The ramblings of the first of many new blog posts to come. Thanks everyone for checking up on me during my time away.
Thanks for visiting the other day :)
Just wanted to say great goal on the 5K, totally doable for you I just know it. Look up heart rate training it is for all fitness levels adn will safely get you to your goal while increasing the efficiency of your body and its ability to use oxygen and its red blood cells. Take care and God Bless!
