Today felt good. I was able to complete 30 minutes on the same Elliptical machine that had me crying for mercy a few weeks ago. Woohoo!!! I'm thrilled to be making progress. I still have to focus on my motion when I'm on the Elliptical but I didn't have any pain. I'm really starting to think we might be figuring all this out in my physical therapy sessions. Such a relief!
Supporting my good feeling this morning, I actually got everything on my nightly must do list done last night. A few months ago I spent 4 weeks following FlyLady's recommendations pretty closely. I can't say that I completed a step everyday. And I definitely didn't make it to the end of the list. But after a month, I started to understand that I really did need to prep for the next day each evening. Without that prep, my days fall apart so quickly. Maybe that is part of running a house, or being a full-time working mom, or just being a human being. I have no idea. But the past couple of nights I've really pushed to get all the tasks done on my list including being in bed at 9:30pm. Last night I succeeded and it makes such a difference in starting the next day.
I'm reaching the gushing point so I'm going to stop. I'm happy right now. I might make a new happy tag to link all my posts where I just love life. I definitely need to remember this feeling on the days when I feel crushed. It's pretty awesome!
