Happy wednesday! I am so glad its wednesday! half the week is over, yay!
How are you all doing?
I am doing very well! I slept well which was awesome! I am so glad I slept well last night! I was in bed last night by 10 PM and asleep by 10:30. I got a good solid 5 or six hours!
this morning I go see dr. barry! I am so looking forward to our appointment. I love seeing her, as we always talk about a lot. Today will be no exception. I need to tell her that Eileens home. I also need to tell her my sleep is a bit better. And I also need to talk to her about the prazosin, I have to come off of it since the wholesale supplier isnt supplying it any longer. I hope she can find an alternative for me.
I also need to get my trevicta shot from the clinic nurse. I cant believe its been 3 months already since I got my last one!
I hope the wait before I see dr. barry wont be too long. I hate all the waiting. I get so bored. Maybe I’ll bring a book and read that. Or go on my phone and go on facebook or something.
After my apt with dr. barry moms coming over to my place for an hour, she’s going to cut my grass, and she’s going to clean up the dog poop in my yard. My sisters going to drop her off on her way to work. I’ll probably just have lunch while she’s doing those things.
Then this evening at 5:30 my Pa comes. We’re going to walk Nitro. I’ll probably do the same walk that I did last week. That takes an hour to complete. Its a nice walk. Weather permitting of course. I hope the weather stays good so we can get out. I enjoy the walking and we talk as we walk which is nice. Nitro needs the exercise and so do I! It keeps me fit!
So thats my day in a nutshell! What does your day look like? Have you anything planned?
todays prompts for 3tc are park, gallop and liqorice
He sat on a park bench, stuffing his face with liqorice. He loved the stuff. Especially the smell of it, the black ones were his favourites.
Suddenly his labrador galloped up to him. He licked his hand, what! You want liqorice too boy? Kevin said with a smile!
Come on he said, time to go for our walk. The dog wagged his tail and jumped around excitedly. Steady, boy, kevin chuckled. Whose walking who here!
They set off and did a couple laps of the park, being out in the fresh air felt so good. This is the life, thought kevin, his dog agreed, it certainly was a dogs life.
What is, you may be asking. Well, its exercise!
Exercise is so good for the soul! I’ve just done 20 minutes on the treadmill and now I am feeling great!
I feel fantastic!
I am determined to be down at tomorrow nights weigh in! I have been walking a lot this week! I did go off plan a little, but I am praying and hoping that it wont matter and that I will still be down at weigh in!
I am planning on maybe going back on the treadmill for another 15 minutes later on tonight! And then again in the morning and afternoon before I get weighed in!
Its hard going but so worth it! Especially when you feel so good after the exercise!
I did over 3000 steps just now on the treadmill, 1.2 miles! Thats good going I think!
I’ve had an amazing weekend. On saturday I went to the beach with my mom and my aunt, we had a great time there. We took the bus there and back. The weather was so beautiful. I even got sunburnt on my arms, neck and face. Its not too sore which I am glad about. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant, I did go a little off plan with my food, but I really dont care. All the walking we did will make up for me going off plan a little. We walked for 7.5 miles. I know it was that long as I counted it on my phone. There was a festival of the sea in the town so we walked around the town for a while, taking in all the atmosphere. It was lovely. Then we went to the actual beach. We walked the length of the bord walk along the sea front. Then we sat on the beach for an hour. after that we went to where they have a casino and we played the slot machines for a while. Mom won 25 euro but me and my aunt didnt win anything. Still though it was fun. We had a nice time and a nice day out. It was around 8 pm when we got the bus home. I really enjoyed the day. I was so tired last night that I was in bed and sleep by 10 PM.
Today was more relaxed. This morning I went grocery shopping with mom, I had to get my fruit for the week, my water for the week and a few other bits. My aunt rang while we were grocery shopping, she wanted to know if we wanted to go to a local garden centre to look around at the flowers, so we said we’d go with her. We looked around and then had coffee and it was a very nice day. After we finished there we went back to my aunts house for drinks, we’ve been there all evening. We just got home a few minutes ago.
I love weekends like this one. Making memories, having fun. Thats what life is all about IMO.
So I’ve started to be serious about exercising. I have a treadmill, and I need to start using it regularly.
So today I decided, I will make a start. I got on the treadmill twice. I did 10 minutes at a time. I also have an apple watch, and I am able to track my time and distance and speed on it.
I am happy with the result. I feel brilliant and I am impressed with the speed I was able to go at.
If I can keep this trend up, maybe I can really tone up my body. Plus I’ll become super fit. I wont do 7 days a week on it, but I intend to do at least 5 days a week on the treadmill. I will take a break at the weekends as I am not home usually on weekends.
They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form. I hope I can make this a permanent thing and form a new habit of using it regularly.
