Sorry for the later-than-usual weigh-in post today. I weighed in early, then went for a swim, then went to visit a family member in the hospital, then ran some errands. I have been finding it hard to get anything done since I got home -- I tried to use my Jawbone UP to take a power nap and somehow just set it to sleep, and spent an hour crashed on the couch. I know I needed it -- I did not sleep well last night. Still, I have work I wanted to do today. The nice thing about work (ha) is that it doesn't go away, so I guess I can get it done later. I thought I'd write this to hopefully get myself in a better state of mind to do something productive.
I was so busy Monday and Tuesday that I'm not surprised that my weight is down -- I didn't have a lot of time for food.
Today's workout was a nice one. It has finally gotten hot again this summer, so I was eager to get in the pool. Friday is the last day for outdoor laps at the JCC this year, and I'm not sure if I will be able to go, so I took a nice, long, easy swim and made sure to savor every minute of it. It's just not the same swimming indoors. It's so beautiful to swim in the morning quiet, and the water temperature was perfect. I was in the pool for 50 minutes and only left because it was time for the morning swimmers to get kicked out.
Because I was going to the hospital today, I knew I'd want some calm to start my day. For me, one of the big benefits of exercise is the stress reduction.
I'm hoping to keep the downward scale trend going. I need to reverse my summer slump.
