I saw my first robin for the year yesterday. I love sitting quietly and listening to the sparrows chirp and the turtle doves coo. That is the sound of spring and summer to me. The leaves are trying to come out on the trees and the grass never lost its green tint. Just need the blue sky all the time and a couple of more degrees on the temperature gauge.
Last night didn't go as I wanted it to go but we did get a little exercise in. No walk though. Hubby had to go back to work for a bit, had someone stop by and time slipped away while making weekend plans. Then we sat back to unwind and with the time change the night got away from us completely. I didn't sleep well at all. I am determined for tonight to be different. Hubby is anxiously supporting the couples exercise we plan to do and understands, after talking, that we need to do things earlier than we did last night. I am absolutely beat today, and sore between the shoulder blades from tossing the medicine ball back and forth.
We are eating very well within our limits and my fasting blood sugar today was 119. Which is amazing for me. No wrenches in my attitude to keep moving forward to success. Need to continue making sure I get the water in take of 100 ounces. It does wonders for my body and weight. I am going to try to work green tea in to my and hubby's diet too. I told him I would make an after dinner green tea for us. He likes that. I reminded him again last night how much easier this is when he supports me the way he is. And how much it means to me he is supporting me completely. I think he feels better doing what I am doing so he is benefiting from it too.
We are doing an exercise a day for a better butt off of SP. He is sore from it. Then adding our own exercises to it to work other areas of the body, stretching and intend on adding a walk together. The walk usually depends on his mood, our allowed time and if anything pops up. I thought maybe we could alternate in 5 minute intervals on the inside bike if he doesn't want to go walk or it is raining. I am doing my best to plan and attack exercise.
