oras Oprah would say maybe I have started to "Make the Connection"..
but this I know for sure.. I am starting to get my act together... Finally.
This morning I woke up and did some morning yoga. I found a good DVD that is for beginners. It is called Element Am&PM Yoga.. 30 minutes for each segment. It is really good, and so easy a caveman can do it.
I could handle all of the positions and 30 minutes quite frankly is just enough for me. Between my sunrises and sunsets.. doggie this and child position that .. I felt good and stretched out..
So, then I was off to my breakfast, some Special K and Dannon Light and Fit.. I entered my calories on my new favorite webspot FitDay.com.
Then it was off to check in on the DH.. who is working on my closet....
Nice work honey.. He is putting in the hardwood floors. I have started to buy a few things, a nice bench and long mirror and then next month our custom closet should be installed. It's been tough living out of boxes and the guest room .. but it will be worth it.. I am also hoping to cull out more clothes..
Then, off I was to go into my own special room.. Men have their "Man Caves".. My DH made this room for me several years ago (I think 2004 ).. anyway.. I have avoided this room for almost 2 years.. and that is so sad because it was designed by my DD Lauren, and built by my DH.. and I rarely used it... well friends, I have turned the corner and those days are behind me.. It is now my favorite room in the house.
I have a full size professional treadmill and elliptical
A full wall of mirrors
Flat screen TV
and other contraptions, bands, mats.. you name it ..
So what has been my problem with using this room?? I don't know.. for some reason I had an absolute aversion and mental fear of going into this room. And today.. I broke through that fear.. I went in with the vacuum and a bottle of windex and wiped down everthing then looked at my self in the mirror and said "Old Girl, get on that treadmill and move your ass".
And so I did.. I am hoping this is not a fluke in my drive.. I hope I stay with this.. I have an absolutely crazy work schedule and this room was (lovingly) built to accommodate my work schedule.
And most of all, I really do want to be healthy.
I know most of you want to be thin and sexy in your clothes.. When you get to my age you start to think about BP, cholesterol, wrinkles..menopause, heart attacks..all that fun stuff when you turn 50...
BUT I am not ready to kick just yet, and if I can do an intervention on myself.. then I know that I AM TRULY IN CONTROL OF ME.
One last picture..Princess Chloe, who did not cooperate with her picture. but here she is staring at a toy on the floor.. always wanting to play.
So I will probably close my day with the PM yoga.. and then hopefully pick some fun activities for tomorrow.
