Keeping things going....

Looks like last week was a good week for me to start up somethings that I have let slip away.  It felt good too!  Work was kind to me which gave me time, and no real excuse, to put things off.

A little exercise in, a little stretching in, a couple of posts here, and even a little guitar practice in.  I literally knocked a little dust of my acoustic...well...probably more than a little dust.  I even kept that rolling into this week already.  I feel my hands loosening up quite nicely.  I definitely need to keep on going on that.

There are a couple of things that I found that I need to adjust.  My exercises fell off as the week drew to a close, but I did see that there are some effective and easy things that I can do at and around the house.  I just have to commit a little bit more.  Now, if I can only adjust to eating a little bit **cough, cough, a lot*** better, I will be on quite the roll..

I was even slow enough at work that I was able to drive around Houston (the East End) and scout a couple of things that I would love to take some snapshots of.  Boy, oh boy has it been way too long for me to do that.  Work has gained so much stream for me here in Houston, that a lot of that freedom that I once had to sneak off and take pictures really don't exist anymore.  I felt great to be able to do that, even it was just to site see.  I know blow that dust off of my camera and have it ready for the next time I get to disappear during a slow work day.  I hope to have one of those days soon.

Ok, well.  That is all that I have for today.  Here is to continuing on these things that I have already started, and maybe starting up a few more!

I did something today that I haven't done in a long time.....

....and that was typed up a blog, no...well, yeah that, but that's not why I came here.  I actually worked out.  Yes, I did a little exercising.  It wasn't anything super special, but it definitely was a start.  Oh yes, I felt it afterward. 

I actually stretched (need to get prepped for running), tried out some jump rope exercises, and started some push up and sit up challenges that will train you for 100 and 200 respectively.  I can't believe that I actually started it.  I was lazy about it and really almost put it off, but I forced myself to.  I guess that is something to be happy about. 

Tomorrow is another day, and these exercises are ones that I can do everyday.  I hope to try it out again.  The ol' saying, "One day at a time..."  We will see.  Wish me luck.

There it is. I am 39 years old now. I have never been one that made a big deal about age before, but that there is starting to sound like I am getting old. The few times I had said that out loud, it hit me. I mean, it just sounded weird. I was like, that right? I guess it is.

I don't think that I feel that old, or old at all. Every once in a while, when getting out of bed, but body may be telling me that I feel like it, but beyond that I feel ok. I know that I need to take better care of myself now. I need to take that more seriously now more than ever. The older you get, the harder it is. I do want to hang around the kids as long as I can, you know. I am currently mapping out my plan on working out. Sigh, it's gonna be tough. It always is getting started from square one, but that is what I get.

I have some other thoughts that I was originally going to type up here, but then this grabbed my attention first for whatever reason. I guess that is a good thing, it gives me something to type up tomorrow, right?! Or next year?! I hope the sooner the better...I will be better at this...I promise....
