A New Workout Routine?

Spider, Web, Hairy, Repairing Web

I was watching a video of Nat King Cole a couple of days ago for my SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY choice and at the end YouTube made some suggestions for what I might be interested in next. What did they think Caramel might enjoy watching?

Here it is:

The way she moves at the start of her routine is….what’s the word creepy/fantastic! I love it. Suddenly I feel as if I need to be able to dance like that – that would be one cool party trick! Parties – do you remember them?

Little Changes Add Up

I learnt something nifty from another blogger and I am going to try it out myself in this post.

I have decided that I want to make a few little changes simply so that I can feel a little more in control of my life. That might sound like a strange goal. But 2020 has just been …yeah. I am sure I am not the only one who feels as if they have lost control…finds it hard to plan…has felt a bit discombobulated by the changes in routine and loss of what traditionally we used to provide structure to our week…to our lives.

I have been busy with work for most of the time, but I have felt myself losing grips of the things I love doing. I have had flurries…walks, outside picnics…recently seeing my family in the north. But I have been more tired because of the crazy work hours. When I have been tired, I have decided I needed to rest more. I gave in to comfort eating. I was not out in the fresh air as often. I ended up watching travel shows (Pole To Pole, The Greek Islands with Julia Bradbury, Simon Reeves travel shows)

Last week I started pulling out some of my winter clothes. Uh! They all felt tight. 😦 That’s not good. So…I am going to be a bit strict with myself. Some of that will be watching the calories, but most of it will be making sure I am going for more walks, more frequently. Jack should tell me when I am putting weight on. He should not leave it for my wardrobe to tell me that!

The IMAGE COMPARE block below shows you the plan. Can you see the little white circle with a < > on the right side of the picture. Drag it over to the left to see what I am aiming for!

At last I found one thing I like about this new block editor….before and after technology. I could have a lot of fun with this block!

Don’t Overdo It

LESSONS IN LIFE:

Be balanced in all areas.

Exercise is a good thing, but don’t overdo it!

Look what happened to this guy 😦

Once a week, I do a little work just around the corner from this skeleton. I keep meaning to take photos of him in all of his different sporting poses. I have seen him running, swimming, skiing, skating.

It reminds me of when I used to clean a physiotherapy unit. We had so much fun with their skeleton. We started with just donning a pinny on it and leaving a feather duster in it’s hand. But things moved on quickly. We started taking glasses, wigs, dresses, a feather boa, and leaving the skeleton in all sorts of poses. Such fun! The physiotherapists loved it. The people passing the windows would see our displays and take photos. Just like me taking a photo of the sporty skeleton that entertains me once a week.
