Going Through the Change…

I’m beginning to wonder if there is such a thing as…normal…when it comes to my routine…everything seemed to be going along just fine…and then…the time changed…and I just can’t quite get it back on track…

I don’t want to go to bed when it’s time…and…I really don’t want to get up the next morning…could it be…I’m evolving into…a…

Night person

Surely not…I don’t want to stay up that late…or sleep that late…for that matter…no…honestly…I just want that extra hour…especially in the morning…the one that I had during the winter…

I know…I know…it’s the same eight hours…regardless of when I sleep…but…quite frankly…they feel different this time…and…I’m not sure why…it’s never taken me more than a week to adjust to the change in the past…

I’m sure that…Bertha…could give me some great insights on the subject…but…it seems that she’s taken the weekend off…and has gone to parts unknown for a little…R and R…who knows…maybe the time change has gotten to her as well…

So…for now…I’m just glad that school will be out in two weeks…and…I’ll get to work out a whole new schedule…which will hopefully include sleeping in just a bit…

A Strong Routine…

I did it…I completed the first two weeks of my strength training program…three workouts a week…getting to the gym at three-thirty in the morning…being the first one there…but…interestingly…not the only one…who knew…other people come to the gym early in the morning…usually by about four…

It’s becoming a comforting routine…I know…I get into my little routines so easily…but…honestly…I am enjoying this one…I like the way I feel after I’m finished…stronger…and…not just my muscles…it’s the feeling that comes from accomplishing something that I’ve decided to do…something that challenges me…that I’m…well…proud of…

I can tell that I’ve gained some strength…and…flexibility…although…my knees still creak and groan when I do squats and lunges…and I have to be very careful how I do them…I’m doing them…

And…I’m still using what I would call…baby weights…but…I am using them…and I know…in a few weeks…I’ll be moving on to…toddler weights

Bertha…says these workouts…are a lot like my life…little efforts…done consistently…lead to big results…next…she says we’ll work on my checkbook…

Hmmm…
