Anyway, that is not what this post is about. I just happened to be trying to organise my digital photos and came across it (an many others) and was reminded of stuff that I hate being reminded of.
I have far too many unsorted digital photos. They are slowly getting sorted into order and I am deleting photos that are crap. Then I hope to shift them into a folder by year and then get some photo books made. It is such an onerous task but also an emotional one. Something nice about seeing time pass via little thumbnails on your lap top.
The past two days at work have been shite. Our cloud based accounting package changed "platforms" (or some crap like that) over the weekend. Well, let me tell you, all did not go well. I managed to get about two hours of productive work done. By the end of today I felt very despondent and also concerned as to how on earth I could catch up with two days of lost work. When I got home and tried to log on to the software needless to say it worked.
You have to hate technology don't you?
I've not been doing anything particularly creative. I do not have the mindset but that's okay because it is only temporary and a lot is going on in the back of my mind what I will do next.
What I have done is start outdoor exercise. Last Monday I turned up to the park where it is held. There is a beautiful little lake in the middle of it with swans and ducks. When we walk around it in the dark you can hear the quacks and splashes of them. Such a lovely thing.
So there was running and sit ups. More running and other stuff. Then I went Wednesday to do boxing. Then Thursday was a cardio class in the pouring rain. It's been a long time since I did any running and I mean a long time. Two years at least and my body was not happy about it. The trainer took us to a smaller park that had a 250 metre track around it and we had to run around it ten times with a one minute break in between. I managed to keep each sprint under 55 seconds but I tell you I did not enjoy it. The rain had soaked me and my legs felt leaden.
When I woke up Friday morning I think every muscle in my body felt like a big bruise. Saturday was worse. On the weekend I cancelled my gym membership because I knew I was over it. Monday I was back to the park with its tranquil pond and ready for another session. Today my butt is killing me from the new exercises I am doing.
The days I do the exercise means I am not home until around 7.30pm as I go straight to exercise from work. That's okay because once I step into the house it's kind of relaxing knowing I am not going to have to head out again.
So a healthy change in exercise and the continuation of healthy eating will take me out of the last month of Winter and into a new season.
Always a work in progress.
