Doing good!

HI! Day #4 on the new job coming up and the way it's working out is really good for the diet. Finalization of shift hours is 1100-1930.
I have to exercise some discipline regarding this new shift or else I'll just sleep,eat & work. So I'm getting up around 0530, I give myself 45 minutes to wake up and I do some trading while I do that.
Then I exercise - finally got that in as part of this routine - 3 days in a row of low impact aerobics and yoga-style stretching - feels SO much better even after only a few days. The pain in my right knee is completely gone and my back feels better too.
Also, I make sure that I get at least one thing done around the house before I go to work - like tidying up an area - something like that so I'm not overwhelmed on the weekends.
I have my big meal of the day at lunch @ 130-200, dinner (lighter fare) at my late afternoon break and I munch on veggies or a protein bar on the way home.I make myself go to bed at 9PM so I can get up early.
Anyway, I finally GET that daily exercise is a PRIORITY not just for weight loss but for a strong and flexible body which makes every aspect of home and work life easier.
I really want to start pole walking (already have the poles) and I was watching a video on race walking - I used to race walk - great exercise and fun, too.
Love you. Have a great day!
