It’s been a little over two weeks since I started working out.  I meet with coach Ed on Tuesdays and Thursdays and the rest of the time I need to stay motivated to keep going. It has been a slow beginning, but I am trying to stick with it, but there have been a couple of days that I just wanted to stop.  Everything is sore in a good way, and I know it is doing me good.  I have noticed that my balance is better.

I realize with only one life and getting older I don’t want to get into a situation of not being able to do things because of an aged broken body so to speak.  The food is another matter, and I am trying so hard to keep a diary and getting more fruit and veggies.

I am in shock with the bike shops in San Antonio that know nothing about a powertap except to sell them.   Aghhh I miss CTS.

I have taken the first step, it took me a while, but yesterday I hired a coach to help me get into a routine of lifting free weights.  I will only be meeting with him 2 times a week and all other days I am on my own.  Last night I set up my bike on the trainer and pulled everything out for the next morning, and yes this morning I trained for 30 minutes.  No intervals, no heart rate monitor, no powertap, that will all be set up later.  My second training will be tomorrow, and I am hoping to keep that motivation going.  I know the first month is the hardest, but I know I have done it before and I can do it again.

Reading past posts

I woke very early this morning and decided to take a look at some of my older posts.  As I read the blogs the rogue wave of remembering swept over me and gently pushed me to understand how different yet same I am.  2005 was the year of hope, death, illness, happiness, and new beginnings and I captured that with my writings.  I realize how strong of a person I am, and if I want something I go after it, yet there is still that vulnerable person inside that shows up once in a while.

Thank you Lord for being at my side, I sure need you.

My animal family

Maximus (Max) spent the night with us, and the rough housing that went on between all the animals was amazing entertaining and down right funny.  We are just not quick enough with the camera and missed some precious moments like Lily deciding that Max’s crate and bed was now hers, or Lily hiding behind a stuff toy and Max seeing her and pounced first.  This morning it started all over again “The Mont’s” and Max mouthing each other, Lily finding a place to pounce on both of them and me having a cup of coffee watching the hooligans.   LOL   It is a great morning and I am so happy to be here.  Thank you Lord.  Time for a walk with he hooligans.

Protected and Happy 11-11-11

Between my Angels, Flue Shots and sanitizer hand wash I am feeling protected from the illnesses brought into the shop.  This is the first year I started to worry about the flu since we have approximately 4 to 6 new customers on a daily basis.  Precautions are a good thing to take.

Maximus (max) visited me in the shop the other day, and he fell asleep in my lap, it sure put a smile on my face, and it was good to see Jon, and I finally heard about the vacation, Disney ship sounds like a great adventure.

This is the shirt I embellished for a birthday party today.  The mom at the last-minute thought it would be a great gift to the attendees.  The picture does not do it justice, you just can’t see how sparkly the pink is.

Woot it is Tuesday

Nothing special about Tuesday, but I am feeling a little better.  Lily is running around the house looking for the puppy, she so wants to play with him.  “The Mont’s” woke us up with his ferocious bark because of a kitty outside.  Give me a break Mont’s, that cat has walked our fence for the past three years, get over it Mont’s.

Yesterday was a good design day, and today either my customers will like it or change it.  It really doesn’t matter to me which one it is as long as they are happy.  Anyways it was a blessing to have a breather from production work.    Have a great day everyone!!!
