Marketing and Working Out
I have a lot more work to do but my goal right now is to spend about an hour a day learning how to market on the internet. I have been using Twitter and Pinintrest some as well trying to get my websites recognized by people I know on the internet and people they know. I just don't want to spend too much time and not follow up with my local customers who don't like to order online. I would really love it if my internet sales would take off but it takes time to build a business and learn how to spread the word in different mediums. I am doing okay with friends and family and even getting referrals from them but I would like to be doing better.
Today I did make that appointment to see a specialist that will figure out if I am just a little crazy or if I have ADD. I am not one to take medicine but if I need it to be more successful I will take it. I typed my prayers this morning I went back and read a little and I think I addressed 12 different topics in one long run on sentence but never completed a though before my brain was on to another one. I just can't focus and the only way I get anything done is with long detailed lists. I also freak out when my well laid plans get messed up. If I am doing well and something has to change (like my plan to workout) I feel like the entire week is ruined. I know that this is flawed logic but I still feel that way. Maybe I am crazy or maybe I am just a big giant child I don't know but I am going to find out and stop ignoring that it is a problem.
So onto the health and fitness issues in my life. As I said yesterday I was doing pretty well with exercise then I got sick but I was only off for about a week. So I started this week with walking the dog on Sunday to get back into the swing of things. Yesterday I did 40 minutes of strength training the upper body and 45 minutes of cardio. Today I ROCKED with my eating and my workout. I went to the personal trainer today and did a full half an hour of abs training and about 70 minutes of cardio. I use my heart rate monitor to make sure I stay in my target ranges so I am sure to burn enough calories. I am not going to bore you with what I ate but I am sticking in my calorie range. I am hoping to see results but I am not going to get on the scale until ......well lets just say there are certain times a woman should probably avoid weighing herself.
Anyway I get a little burned out counting calories constantly and tracking my progress so I am going to try to stay away from the scale and just weigh once or twice a week. Why you ask? Well I know that I get obsessive about it and I get very frustrated when I am doing everything right and I am not seeing results. I need to just do things right and be satisfied with feeling better but that is harder than it sounds.
So the plan for tomorrow is make sure I get to the gym and do an hour of marketing and think up some things to do for my regular customers that will make them smile.
