Exercising fail and other laments

I didn't think the exercise program I laid out for the week was that ambitious but my mind and body thought otherwise so I only accomplished exercising 4 days out of 7. I did make it to a yoga class as I have decided I have to stick with that no matter my desires or not.

I also didn't make the phone calls or send texts to schedule a massage or gym orientation or get the name of a good PT for our files. Nor did I buy new exercise clothing.

I didn't have any problem going out to lunch twice and meeting up for coffee once as well as dinner out with Hubby and some wine and beer drinking. Priorities you know.

Well it is a new week and my more realistic exercise plan for this week is to exercise every other day.

Sunday, Thursday & Saturday - stretch DVD, walk and/or hand weights
Tuesday - yoga class

Better to plan for 4 days and hopefully exceed it than feel guilty about not exercising every day.

On the other hand I did finally have my annual physical and Welcome to Medicare appointment. The doctor was nice but nice isn't enough. Once I extract my prescription renewals from this apparently understaffed and low on technology practice as well as the referral for an abdominal aorta aneurysm screening we are going to see if we can find a larger, more efficient medical practice. BTW, I am having the aneurysm screening because when you start Medicare you can have one for free if you are in a risk category which I am because my Dad had one and had surgery to repair it. Usually it is white males who smoked that are at risk and can get screened.

I also think I need to find a better vet.

After singing the praises of the local OLLI program we both decided we weren't excited enough about any of this coming sessions classes to sign up. Darn.

Enough lamenting. Back to a can do, it will all work out approach.


  1. Hi Juhli. Just discovered your blog and I am really enjoying it! Would you be willing to share where you took Pilates in Atlanta? I am trying to rehab bad knees and have been told Pilates would be good. Thanks for any suggestions!

    1. Sure. I went to Studio Lotus near Emory but they have another location too.

    2. Oh, and the best physical therapist I have ever had works out of there too and coordinates with the Pilates instructors. Her name is Audrey Jones.

  2. Thanks! I'll check them out.


A good day
