Not much knitting is going on. We’ll have a house full of people this coming weekend so I’m down to panic cleaning and decluttering. I have to make a list of everything that needs done so I feel a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. I can get easily distracted and it keeps me on task, too.
I’ve been feeling a bit out of sorts lately and I thought that joining in with Cindy and her Smoosh Camp 2011 would help get me out of that funk. I’m not as detailed as Cindy is. I’m just trying to move more and watch what I put in my mouth. After all exercise reduces stress, improves sleep, boosts self-esteem, plus it releases dolphins that make you feel better. Or is it endorphins? =)
The first week I managed to walk one lap around our building each day during lunch. It was cool but not raining.
Last week it rained every day so I didn’t get to do my lunchtime walk. That Monday I did some exercises while sitting at my desk. The rest of the week was a bust.
This is a new week. Yesterday I did two laps and expanded my route. The assistant director asked if I was going to do my lap at lunchtime so he went along with me. The second lap was his idea and it was good. I didn’t get that sleepy feeling around 2:00 even though I didn’t get a very good night’s sleep the night before. In fact I felt great the rest of the day.
Maybe there is something about those dolphins after all.
