Public Commitment to Exercise

#37
I am struggling today, with the thought of doing my daily yoga practise.
My guy friend is here and I find it much harder to practise when he is around.

It will be a BIG victory if I manage to get my routine done today.
I DID IT!
I did an yr long practise called "Self love yoga" with Adriene on Youtube.

I feel SO MUCH BETTER for doing it.
A little sweaty, a little shaker, but the good drugs are flowin' (as in endorphins and seratonin etc)

Starting tomorrow, my plan is to spend most of my days alone at the park model fixing things while my husband is at work. I have staples and nails to pull, slide-out seals and wall studs to replace, insulating and skirting to do, etc. My head says this is exercise. Then it says it's all the exercise I need.

But I have been doing some pretty targeted exercise. None of this is really going to help my hips. It's certainly not going to help my shoulders.

So, here is my compromise: I am not going to go out of my way to burn calories, count calories or do cardio this week. I AM going to do my hip, core and shoulder exercises. Typically, I do these every other day so as to not be too sore and that's what I intend to do this week, as well. This means I am off the hook for Monday, but not today. Today I will do my hip, core and shoulder exercises after my husband and I come back from the park model this afternoon.

I went for a walk! Next time I probably won't take my dog, as he decided 1/4 of the way through that he was going to lay down, then when I told him his command, "Let's go!" He refused, and I dragged him like an inch to see if he would get up and NOPE, so I got to carry that fluffy boy the rest of the way. Learned my lesson. 😂

Up at 5:30, at Lowe's by 7:30, cooked breakfast, 90 minutes of driving, four hours of demolition and cleanup, 2 loads of laundry (all the way - folded, hung up -everything), 3 pages of diary, cooked our week's worth of veggies, picked up groceries and somehow forced myself into doing my exercises this evening despite at least a half-hour of internal protests.

If I hadn't said I was going to exercise today, I'd have let myself get out of this - easy.

I walked around in the middle of the night before last inside my home. Last night I was too freaked out about this huge spider I found in my home which I killed with bug spray. I will walk around in here now. (Still under quarantine).

Alright so, I do not want to do this seeings as how I am sore and grumpy and therefore almost completely unmotivated to improve my situation BUT I already said I would right?? (I guess I need even more commitment today.)

I will do my shoulder, hips and core exercises today. I let myself "rest" yesterday while I tore out ceiling and cleaned but today is a new day.
