I DID IT!!
I went jogging this morning. I did 1/2 of a lap. Then I walked the remainder of the lap.
Dang, I am proud of myself. It felt good to jog-walk in the early morning, unencumbered by a heavy backpack full of music, knitting needles, yarn, lunch, Bible, prayer journal, devotional and gym clothes!
But, I think I am in better shape cardiovascular, in spite of my COPD because of my daily walking with heavy backpack!
I thought about hooping in the field at the track, but the grass was wet. I decided to feel free by just starting my day jog-walking. I got the painful thing out of the way first!
Then I came home and did my daily hoop workout and daily piano practice session.
Today is day 134 of my daily hoop journey.
Still feeling amazingly focused! I'm digging it! My next hurdle to conquer is my memory.
My biggest handicap as a musician is my struggle to memorize. I have super monks sight reading skills. Always have. But my memory sucks.
So daily memorizing is my next project!
By removing distractions, negativity and time wasters from my life, I have made space for many good things!
Speaking of good, today was a very good day. After my piano practice, I caught the max to my gym for a nice sauna , Jacuzzi and shower. Then I headed over the river to Vancouver, WA to hang out with Baby Gracie while her mom a nd dad played on their volleyball league.
The buses all behaved- I made it from Mall 205 Max station to Fishers Landing transit station in 11 minutes flat! I caught the C-Tran bus shortly after I arrived.
I did so well, that I had time for a leisurely bacon blue cheeseburger on a gluten free bun at Burgerville and London Fog at Starbucks before they picked me up.
Gracie and I did much dancing in the halls while her parents played volleyball.
Today was a good day. And I plan on another one tomorrow!!
