Fitness F riday

I know that I am not at my best/peak fitness level however I do not feel that I am at my worst either. Lately I’ve been struggling to get in my daily steps and any other kind of activity because of a foot problem. Now today the strap to my Fitbit fell apart and I am unable to accurately log the steps I do take.


This coupled with some other issues in my life have led me to decide to take a break from tracking/focusing on fitness activities for awhile. I know there are other things I could be doing(and most probably should be doing) in terms of fitness, but truthfully I just don’t want to. I don’t really enjoy most forms of exercise so it is a struggle to actually do anything most days. Then I get upset because I set the goal to exercise and don’t follow through. That leads to negative self-talk which leads to a bad mood which most often leads to poor eating choices.

Considering all that, I’m going to put my time, energy and focus on some other things I’d like to accomplish this year(like perhaps the completion list that I posted earlier this year?!?). We’ll see how things turn out as the year winds down.

Have you ever taken a fitness break? How did it turn out for you? I’d be interested to hear how other people have dealt with this situation so please feel free to share your thoughts.

Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

So frustrating when you finally get around to try to complete a project and run out of supplies. Then you discover that you can’t find the exact thing to match unless you spend a whole lot more money -UGH!

First few weeks of school have gone pretty smoothly, hope it will continue a bit longer. The boy is not happy with the amount of homework but I don’t  think it has been that bad so far.

Need to get to work on gathering information to fill out financial aid forms now that the girl has decided to apply to some colleges. Not looking forward to that task.

My one lone pepper is finally turning red, there is one tomato that will hopefully last long enough to turn red and the second crop of raspberries are coming in. Think I’ll need the ladder to harvest the pears.

Starting to get hungry as I can smell the meat cooking in the roaster – swiss steak over rice for dinner tonight.

Off to finish the laundry before people starting coming home and the evening fun begins.

Wow – it has been a long time since I’ve posted anything. Summer always throws me for a loop. I can’t figure out how to get everything accomplished when there are people around draining my battery.

It was a bit of a rough summer –  lots of family drama, some injuries, and a bit of a relapse to the lethargy that I had just after being diagnosed with Lyme Disease. At times, anything(and everything) just seemed like too much effort to even try to do. But with the start of school and more time to myself to recharge/fill my battery, I’m hoping to make some changes and get some stuff done.

Right now I’m loving the smell of my sweet autumn clematis – I get a nice whiff every time I leave/enter the house. I just planted a few pieces of it on my front fence and hopefully the hot weather won’t kill it. Didn’t have much luck with the tomatoes this year – the deer have gotten every single one so far. My red pepper turned out to be something else – not sure what yet as it is still growing. Had good luck with the raspberries, strawberries, apples and pears. Let too many weeds go to seed last year and have had a hard time keeping up with them this year. Did get a lot of work done around the water feature and am determined to get it done this year. Still need to divide and transplant some irises, did up the sunflowers and then add some mulch and it will be good to go. If I do one section at a time I’ll eventually get it all done – at least I hope!

This is the girl’s senior year and the boy’s first year of middle school. Lots of changes coming and I’m hoping that we can navigate them with a minimum of difficulty.

I’ll end here for now – hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to ending the year with a strong push towards your goals.
