Day 15th day, of my 90 day fitness make over. Its been a challenge to stay focus. So here what I have committed to; 3 days gym for a 1 hour cardio work out. Yoga on Saturday morning, Friday morning Cassy Ho”s creator of pop Pilates 5 minutes thigh work out. I am working decreasing the snacks and sugar in take. I have increased water in take to 32 oz per day. I checked with my doctor and I am on a great vitamin regimen. Yes, I do believe in the combination of good eating and supplements. Each day I make healthy choices for lunch and dinner and Breakfast a protein shake or oatmeal.
My body aches, no my body hurts from the workout, but I know it from a lack of using my muscles and stretching.
I am sleeping better and have better energy
I didn’t weigh myself because I don’t want this to turn into a numbers game.
This 90 days is about a serious commitment to a life style change.
See you in fifteen days.
Last night changed today. Let me explain. Yesterday, I created a to do list for today. One of my goals for the New Year ( 2019) is to plan and stick to a daily agenda so that my tasks do not pile up and overwhelm me. I received a call from my daughter in law telling me that my son (my only child) at the age of 37 had a heart attack. I eased myself to the floor while I listened to her relay the events of the day that resulted in her calling for emergency assistance. My immediate concern is for her and my three grandchildren because my son is the rock of that family, and their three children is the center of his life. Mothers are never prepared for these type of phone calls. Making this situation more complicated they live in North Carolina, and I live thousands of miles away in New York City. My first instinct is to pack and get moving, but my daughter in law communicated that my son said for me to stay put until they have information from the doctors. She continued to assure me that he is receiving good service and that she would not leave his side. So, I must stop pacing and wrenching my hands and make good use of my time by sticking to today’s schedule. My son is my biggest fan and supporter of my journey of becoming a writer. Through all of life’s trials’ and errors my son has been the best miracle that’s ever happened to me. I make myself better so that he has a mom that he can be proud of. So, today with a lot of prayers, tears and positive thinking, I push on…….
Dear readers, we are living in a society were self -care frowned upon the myth is that if you are taking time to care for self, than you are robbing your partner or children of you. So, little by little you give up the things you enjoy. Take a look at my video and get back to Doing you. Remember a happy partner is a happy relationship.
If you are now joining my blog a few days ago a light bulb went off in my head. I’ve decided to create a You Tube channel, my own little talk show called Conversations from my Couch. This is an open forum to talk about every day issues, like relationships, women empowerment, health and fitness, political topics, and education. I am going to have fun, but be serious when I need to be. I just want to talk to the PEOPLE. so let me hear from you.
This segment comes to you courtesy of my very, very good friend Sara. She agreed to do an impromptu talk about some relationships myths. Sit Back and have Fun.
