Monday... the start of a new week...
And I am still going to the pool! Bonus!!
I was a little worried about going during the day with having to put up with little screamers!... but it was fine! I had totally forgotten about the adults only swim over lunch 12 - 2! Phew!! So it was great, hardly any adults too...mostly retired people. I was not bothered as long as I had a lane to walk in! Yes still only walking as per my physios instructions. So well today I smashed, smashed what I have been doing previously and it felt good. In 15 minutes I marched up and down the pool...30 times I think...I did lose count a few times but I think its around 30! That also got my heart pumping as I was not going slow! After that I moved to the steps and used them like a step in an aerobic session! Up, down, up and down.. a fair few times. I did think whilst doing this what the people swimming around me thought I was up to?! hee hee Then I went to the jacoozie...(Bubbly thing) and sat in the really hot water with my thighs making contact with the seat (as per instructions!) and cycled! Oooh miles I think! I closed my eyes and kind of drifted away on my virtual water bike! lol It felt really relaxing and I am so going to do that again. After that I went into the steam room for 5 minutes, more relaxing! Then showered and home :)
I really enjoyed my session at the pool today... I did say that! I think the key here for me is to reward with a lovely relaxing break. And to be honest I think the relaxing did me good. Do you know its really cool the things you think about when relaxing... when I closed my eyes it was like I had heaps of people talking to me at first. Then I guess one by one they went and it was quiet... and that is when I started to think of places of happiness I have visited... such a lovely experience and I will try it again. Yes as you will probably guess relaxation is not something I do! I dont like quiet, at home if its quiet I have like a washing machine spin cycle going off in my head, so I dont do quiet! But at the pool it was different... it might of been because there was background noise...the water people chatting... hmmm
What have I eaten today..
My notebook entry..
Breakfast.. porridge as I knew I was going to the pool and did not want to feel hungry whilst there.
Lunch when I got back from the pool was one of my amazing banana milk shakes... I just love them! I am however thinking of being adventurous and adding strawberries or blueberries?? Thinking...
Dinner.. well you know how I have gone off meat... well I thought I would try it again. I made chicken (breast) casserole and thought I would try again as it did look tasty!
Here it is... chicken casserole made with onion, carrots red and green peppers... with a small amount of vegetable flavored rice.
Hmmm..... but I left some as I could actually not eat it all!!
Not sure what to think really after eating chicken again... I only had a small bit, left most of it. Not sure at this point if I am going to eat it again though? As you can see I mostly ate the peppers and carrots and onion!
So that is me for today! I will say that I have no way drank enough today :( It is driving me scatty now... not sure what to do about this?
College day tomorrow... with big changes... let you know more tomorrow :)
Keep smiling now!
