Well That Was a Really Short Walk……

and your point is?????

Returning from my 2nd walk of the – take a walk every day after work, it’s the best time – thing I was greeted by my daughter with the short walk comment.  Ahhhhhh, if she only knew it was a big deal for me to get the sneakers on and go for that short walk.  Baby steps is how this is going to get done.  I didn’t get out of shape overnight and I won’t be getting into any sort of better shape in any kind of hurry.  So Miss Athlete didn’t really hurt my feelings when she made her short walk comment.  Out of the mouths of babes, and all that….

I’m going to get into a new groove – I just haven’t completely designed what it will look like as of yet.  I’m not entirely convinced that leaving the office between 1:30 and 2:00 to get home when the kids do is the best either.  I think if I eventually worked more from home that might be more efficient but for right now with multiple daily meetings it’s better that I’m there. No need for a hard and fast decision about changing so soon.

I’m not exactly in a funk but it’s definitely a low energy time for me.  The old “wish I was a bear so I’d be hibernating right now” scene.  It’s funny but in the past my ideal time to work out was “before the sun came up” early, especially in the cold weather but not so much anymore.  Part of that issue is not getting enough good, uninterrupted sleep which I’m working on as well.  I have that terrible ADDiva habit of getting a second wind when the house quiets down at night and all of my distractions have gone to sleep. That was fine when I wasn’t working and could sleep most of the day away if I chose to do that.

Another area where I’m not helping myself much is not taking my 2nd ADD meds dose mid-day.  If I miss the window it becomes too late to do it and I will really stay up too late at night.  So for today, I didn’t take the 2nd dose and I’d love to doze off right now but have to take the kids to demo team practice in just under an hour. What I really feel like doing is eating then sleeping.  See, just like a bear?  There are a myriad of other things I could or should be doing but I’m not diving into that stuff right now when I have to leave in about 40 minutes.

Just because the progress isn’t obvious to everyone else doesn’t mean I don’t feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that I’m aware of these things and others and I’m working away at them little by little.  Rome wasn’t built in a day and I’m certainly not trying to re-create Rome!
