Chugging along

Not much is going on in my corner of the world. Which is crazy considering the state of the world at large. The large number of people all over the world who are protesting during a pandemic for racial justice make me proud and sad that this is so very necessary.

Week 1 of back at work was doable. I was lucky and the night job was quiet so I was able to leave early. This getting up early to work out and then working 2 jobs every day is not for the weak. But I think I’m getting the hang of it.

Week 2 was more intense with the night job. I worked 2 complete shifts and most of the other ones as well. Thursday I woke up feeling like I hit a brick wall, so I rested and moved my workout to Saturday. I also changed it up and did a Leslie Sansone walking workout on Friday as I needed to go easier on myself. I have a drawer full of exercise videos and I have only been doing 2 … Time to mix it up.

I am starting to see a difference in my body, so the working out will continue. I have not stepped on the scale since I started or taken any measurements as I find it is best if I just do it and judge by my clothes. I am also trying to increase my water intake. I do really well during the week. The weekend needs improvement.

Our local library is back in business with curbside pick up. So I picked up way too many books. Why do all my holds come in at the same time? My plan this week is to work my full shifts as it is usually quiet after 8 pm and use the time to read. I took a office chair from my mother and hope it will help as I am slouching very badly while working from home. When it gets quiet, I have been moving my work laptop to my computer stand and planting my butt in my comfy recliner.

My plan for this week is to make an appointment with my chiropractor. Hopefully undo some of these hours spent slumping. Other than that, it will be a boring week over here.

Hope all is well with you and yours.
