❤️Walk: Too windy at times.

Notes: Today was weird. Other than Boxing and Yoga, my morning spent working on my personal project, which I finished around noon. The project is called the Journal Project, or JP for short. I’ve kept a journal since 1987, every day since 1998. Sometimes I’ve written a line, sometimes pages. The JP is when I go back and read all my journals from beginning to end. A successful JP is when I analyze and learn something about myself. This JP was not successful. I started out with the best of intentions in September but when Scott got injured October, I just basically read because I couldn’t focus on anything else. Towards the end, I just wanted to get it over with. My next planned JP starts on 02.20.2025. Hopefully it will be a better one.

Notes: I had a terrible day today…😿It was also too cold to walk outside. I didn’t feel like doing anything but boxing 90 minutes was too much. I also felt queasy and gross after dinner but at least it didn’t last too long.

** I am finally caught up on my log. I kept my streak. I finished the redo of all but one of the Level I programs. But I’ve fallen away from a consistent Yoga practice (balance an flexibility have suffered) and I have mostly been going through the motions with my meditation practice. I have also kept up with a couple bad eating habits. I hope that I can keep up with this long and make some other positive changes.

❤️Boxing: Rating = 8.5. Good workout. My foot felt the same. I did a new a combo.
❤️YWB: Rating = 9.0
❤️PC: Rating = 9.5
❤️Unbound: Rating = 7.0. Frustrating. For the life of me, I cannot do pose 5. I also think I did pose 3 incorrectly.
❤️EotD: Rating = 8.0. This felt weird not on the he bag.
❤️MMP: Rating = 8.0. This was an older video so no music. It was a good workout nonetheless. My core just isn't strong enough to handle all the moves.
❤️Walk: Cool, cloudy and breezy.
❤️WotD: Rating = 9.0. This was easy.

Notes: Kind of a blah day. The good news is that my dad was able to go to the family gathering yesterday and take the dog out this morning. The bad news is that Scott had a shitty workout complete with pain like when he had the pinched nerve. 😿 Also, my contacts were so irritating that I took them out at 7:30.

❤️BLY: Rating = 9.5. Relaxing but with great hip openers. I really loved this one.

Notes: Monday mornings are tough…especially after a craptastic night of sleep. I also had a dentist appointment at 9:30. The awesome thing is that my implant is doing so well that she forgot it wasn’t a regular tooth. The crappy thing is that my bottom wisdom tooth has a crack in it. I pretty much knew it though. Time is running out for my last 2 wisdom teeth. The rest of the day was ok. Work was annoying but Get Fit With Rick was fun and yoga was awesome. 💗
