Monday motivation

Happy Monday, everyone!!! While I’m not 100%, I do feel much better. The only thing running is my nose, lol, so I did a 30 minute hike at an incline on the treadmill today, core, and my daily plank. How was your day? #mondaymotivation

Cheers!

Sparking joy

I was able to spend the day with my daughter today at the pool again. She’s always been obsessed with mermaids, so when she was able to use the mermaid tail at the pool today, she was elated. And to see an almost 15 year old smiling from ear to eat like a little kid, truly made my day. She told me it “sparked joy” in her life and it just warmed my heart.

I’m going to take a cue from her, and do more things that spark joy in my life, too.

Who’s with me?!

Cheers!

Saturday

Today was my first day out of the house in a over a week, and it was glorious. I’m still not 100% but feeling better. We decided to skip the beach as the St Pete beach coast line is filled with red tide and I didn’t want to aggravate my cold. We spent the day at the pool and then went to dinner with my daughter and my friend Kandice. I also took my daughter shopping and I have to say how nice it was to see people’s faces. I’ve really missed seeing the expressions on people’s faces. 🤩

How was your day?

Cheers!

Streaking

I’ve been doing daily planks since October 1st, 2019. Some days I go longer, some I alternate side planks and straight arm planks. Other days I just do what I can to keep the streak going. Some ask why I do the streak, and I’m not sure I have an answer. I think deep down I remember days, weeks, even months where I didn’t feel like doing anything. Getting out of bed was a struggle. So knowing I’ve got to do a daily plank to keep my streak going, which also helps keep me moving-has helped keep me going.

Do you have any rituals that help keep you going? I’d love to hear about them!!

Cheers,

Happy Sunday

Well, the weekend was a bust, and downloading this image from pexels.com was as close as I got to going outside….still battling a head cold, so switched up my meds today and finally got a tiny bit of relief. Can you believe I went through 2 boxes of Kleenex in one weekend? Sheesh….lol!!!

So to say I am rested and ready for the work week is a complete and utter lie. Lord help me in the morning when that 0530 am alarm goes off. My biggest issue has been sleep…I am not a good sleeper, and add in severe nasal congestion and yeah….the only way I can sleep is propped up on pillows, while laying on my back. I am a side sleeper…so you can imagine how well that has been going this weekend….hahaha!!

Anyhow just wanted to wish you all a very happy Sunday evening, and a wonderful upcoming week!!

Cheers!

Down for the count

Well, I haven’t been sick for 2 1/2 years. I started feeling a little under the weather Thursday evening, and woke up yesterday with a head cold. I thought it was allergies/sinuses, but when it continued on through today I knew it must be an actual cold. Booh. The hubby and I had a date day/dinner date planned as our youngest daughter was going to a friend’s house, but unfortunately I wasn’t up to it.

So we watched Food network and movies, and ordered takeout instead.

Today’s view

How was your Saturday?

Cheers,
