So today started off pretty bad - I woke up to find that we had no water. Recently we have only been losing our hot water but every now and then we lose both hot and cold like today. The apartment office says something about work being done on the pipes or pipes busting so we aren't really sure what is actually going on. Between that and waking up in a blah mood I had to force myself to eat and then promptly crawled back into bed with hubby - I read my book and he played on his laptop. A small spat between us had me up and doing things about the house though. I got a little more packed and then he left for school.
I decided today I would do at least two miles because I haven't walked in almost a week. So I armed myself with my Zune and my phone and went out to walk up and down the street in front of our complex - I foolishly wore all black but it was a pretty nice day. The street has quite a few hills if you actually walk the part to the left of the complex - I decided that the hills couldn't possibly be that bad so I braved them. Up one end of the street, turn around and walk all the way down to the end and then back to my complex is a mile (I found that out today) so I did it twice. Came back into the house and did some seated exercises with Coach Nicole...after drinking a shake that is - I was starving after that walk! Got into the music I was listening to and was so pumped up that I decided another turn on the street would do me good. I did 1 mile in exactly 19.01 minutes WOOHOO. I even had hand weights the second time around!
To make the awesomely pumped up day better I got to talk to a friend I served in the Army with, I haven't talked to him in a looong time so it was really nice to hear his voice.
I'm just so glad that a day that started bad ended very well - I really feel like I earned my shower today. I even earned a nice big blister on the back of my heel (I really need thicker socks or to figure out a way to stop getting the blisters). Its starting to get rather stormy here though - nice black skies and a bit of thunder. It is going to be a nice storm. Oh and before I forget - any one who is looking for meatless hot dogs - Smart Dogs aren't that awesome unless you use a whole piece of bread for them. They are rather rubbery and smell kind of funky. Oh well.
Welp Hubby is home from school so I'm going to wrap this up. I hope everyone has a blessed night and an awesome rest of the week!

    Way to rise up today and get yourself out there.!! Woo hoo!! Getting in two miles, especially hilly ones is fantastic.

    What makes it even better was that you enjoyed it which gives you something to build upon. When the exercise or the activities we do are not enjoyable, we tend to stray away from doing them again.

    Very happy for you and glad you are finding your groove.

    SPARK ON IN 2012!!

    Isn't it wonderful when we go above and beyond what we plan to do when working out? I'm glad you had such an awesome experience with it. We all need to have that!
