In honor of Dr.Seuss, there are 2 things that I have noticed this past week…
Thing 1 – When working on school work at home, I have gotten the sudden urge to walk/exercise. ( This is not procrastination. This is highly unusual for me, because I tend to be a work horse and get all my work done before exercise/me time.)
Thing 2 – I am truly becoming aware of how much I do for others (mainly, my children) and how I put my needs on hold. (This occurred to me just as I was about to go for a a brisk walk. My son informed me that he was ready to be driven over to his friend’s house…oh, he got to his friend’s house, but after I took my walk.)
Wow, what a revelation! Duh! Take time for myself!!! That’s truly the challenge! (Obviously, this message is trying to get through to me.)
So, I am continuing to knock out some time each day for exercise which can be anything from a walk, yoga, the elliptical at the gym or a DVD workout. There were a couple of days that I just didn’t feel up to it, but I pushed myself forward…my ugh turned into ahhh once I got moving!
I need to remember to…STAY FOCUSED….BE MINDFUL…I think I can, I think I can… Mary Beth 🙂
