Not my normal day

I'm starting work at 3:30 today. Crazy, huh? I had cancellations, so I'm home and trying to use the extra time wisely. I started at the aquatic center. It reopened yesterday, and boy did I needed the workout. I've been walking, but I've been eating everything in sight, and it shows. Even in 2 weeks. I called the center beforehand to make sure they were open. I swam 2/3 of my normal amount since I'm out of practice, plus I have a problem shoulder. This time I found that I forgot my undergarments. I guess that's easy to forget when you put your clothes over your swimsuit. I'm just glad I planned to come home afterwards.

I've done laundry, paid bills, rearranged my closet, etc. It's been great. I only wish I had the rest of the day off.

That said, I'm going to get busy. One more hour before work time.

Wow, you're so efficient. You got a lot done.

I'm glad you're working up to your normal swim routine. It's better to start slow after a layoff.

I swam today and did more than usual. I can feel it, but it's a good feeling. You're smart to start back slow and easy!

Hey, I really do want that Baked Pineapple recipe. It sounds so good!

What is going on with your shoulder? It's starting to worry me a bit.

Brad said...

I wish I had your motivation to exercise. I'm going to have to find it soon at the rate I'm going!

I need to get your motivation like Ruth said!

But your shoulder? Do you think a lot of it is from work and then swimming? No torn rotator cuff I hope? (sp!)

Happy Thanksgiving!

cancellations suck, but at least it gave you some downtime for other things.

It is really hard to get motivated to go to work at that hour, isn't it? I have always wondered how folks that work second shift managed.

I hope your holiday was wonderful! I have been pretty absent recently but I think I read that your were going to be eating elsewhere, not hosting. So, I hope your day was easy and happy.

Have a great weekend. Hugs.
