Exercise+, Day 1: Lame Labels

Wow… I feel completely off my game today.   I mean, it was a busy day, and an unusual one for starting a new cycle, but still.  Wendy and her boys came out and spent lunch and the afternoon with us, so I didn’t really have a ton of time in the end to dedicate to the goals I set down for myself.

Nonetheless, I did enough to count today a success.  I walked my 120 minutes, and I spent part of the evening sitting down with Daylite’s Concept Manual so I could finally get my brain around everything it can do.  It’s a great program, but it’s one of those things where it’s designed to be applicable across a rather broad spectrum.   Big companies with a huge workforce and a diverse array of clients can use it to delegate duties and track project progress, etc.  Given that, I have a lot of fat trimming to do to get it to work for me.

So, I spent part of today setting up categories and keywords that seemed applicable. It doesn’t sound like much, I guess, but I didn’t have a lot of time.  Anyway, it needed doing.

Zack is caught up on his schoolwork.  Noah didn’t have any.  Success there too.

I think I will amend my exercise regimen somewhat this time around, actually.  I know I said I would walk for at least 120 minutes, but I think I’m going to amend that to ‘do at least 120 minutes of exercise’.   I’m wanting to give the Wii Fit another shot, particularly the Yoga, but I want credit for it if I do that. 😉  Especially since it’s something that eats up time as a standalone activity; I can’t do computer work while doing Yoga, after all.  I just want to feel like I’m doing something for upper body once in awhile too.

Exercise, Day 21: Walking Really Late AGAIN!

Yeesh.. This needs to stop.   Andy and I spent the entire day today cleaning (well, admittedly, except for the time I spent sleeping in today and then chatting for awhile online.  Bad Jen!) and then my parents came by to play some pinochle.  Ergo, it’s going on 11, and I’m just now walking.  Once again, score one for the blog and the 21-day goal, because this was definitely a day when it would have seemed only prudent to skip it.  But man, who dies on Day 21?!

So, here I am.  And really, it’s sort of nice.  It’s been a busy day, the house looks really good now, and this is kind of a good opportunity to reflect and consider what the heck I’m going to do for 21 days starting tomorrow.
